This was my square at this year’s Christmas Chalk Walk in Aliso Viejo.
The year went by so fast. I had a wonderful year, many opportunities to write and create. Exactly one week ago I was up in the mountain enjoying the snowfall and today I am sitting on the beach enjoying my 2017 New Year’s intention tea. I welcome the new year, full of things that have never been. Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year ahead!
The holidays are upon us and I for one am more than happy to welcome the blessings of the new year. I had a wonderful time in Lake Arrowhead for Christmas. It snowed and we had a white Christmas just like in the movies.
This year I attended a cookie decorating gathering with some of my good friends and learned to decorate cookies using royal icing. It was so much fun, I think I should bake more often and did I mention that they tasted fantastic?
I hosted Norwood Library’s Dia de los Muertos painting workshop for kids. They painted paper mache “sugar skulls” at the library and later I exhibited them at the El Monte Dia de los Muertos celebration event which took place at the Valley Mall on Saturday, October 29. The kids got to take their works of art home after the exhibit.
