Drawing Challenge : GARLAND and a break in advent explanation

Tis the season my friends...
to adorn and drape all surfaces with boughs of garland
made from branches collected in my woods
entwined with lights and pinecones
the garlands surround us with the holiday spirit - as we sit down to sip cocoa and create handmade ornaments with friends

Garland, sweet garland...i'd have you up all year round if I could!

See Tiny Woolf for more garland goodness!

my tech stuff is dying...scanner won't scan, camera won't take pics, computer sounds like an airplane trying
to take off....ADVENT 9- present will come when i am rested up. I suppose my computer is telling me to rest...i just had my gallbladder taken out and am recovering. as much as i wanted to upload my garland sketches and keep up with my advent...it is out of my hands. off to nap, again!
i'd love to hear from all of you!
