Tuesday:) Toni’s Time-lapse Video-Holly on Glass

16 Dec

the winter is kind and leaves red berries on the boughs for hungry sparrows…”
― John Geddes, A Familiar Rain


Wow! It was a blustery misty miserable day out there today. But, that’s OK. There’s always something creative to do to warm the spirits. Speaking of spirits… I think I’ll have a glass of wine when I’m done here. Then, I have a lot of gifts to pack up by tomorrow. It will be a long night. A good long night.

A Berry Merry Christmas

Toni’s Tuesday Time-Lapse Video~ Snowy Woods

“These woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”
― Robert Frost, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening


I just love the pressure of trying to come up with an idea to post for my time-lapse Tuesday painting post. (NOT) This was a fun and easy way to paint a few Christmas cards. Plus, it only took me 23 seconds, (Not)

I continue to amaze myself, because “I AM……… AMAZING!”

Now, Elvis on the Shelvis was helping Miss Toni paint her Christmas cards and edit the time-lapse video. Plus, he sang “Blue Christmas” for me while I worked. He’s such a good helper. Just don’t step on his blue suede shoes. He gets a little annoyed.

Toni’s Tuesday Time-lapse Video:) Notecard Craft with a DumDum

11 Nov

• “Be a rainbow lollipop in a world full of Dum Dum suckers.”



Today, I wanted to post a fun little video that I created using some leftover Halloween candy, specifically, the DumDum lollipops. My senior artist friends over at Towne Creek have been making, writing, and sending cards to people in local nursing homes for the holidays, Most of those nursing home folks can’t get out, and a nice note or card will brighten their days.

I’m still not able to conduct my art classes, but I can drop off supplies and projects that they can work on in their apartments, on their own. I was thrilled to hear that no one has gotten Covid over there. What a blessing.

Christy and Kelly (middle) were delighted when Helene and I dropped off our cards and crafts supplies. Another volunteer, Karen, also sent us with a bag of cards and a book for their book club.

Most of my ladies already have colored pencils, markers, crayons, etc. , so I just cut out some parts for them to trace, sent along 50 blank notecards and envelopes, made an instruction card, and I made a time-lapse video to demonstrate. Then, they could use my examples or create a fun masterpiece of their own. The recipients of these lovely cards will appreciate the creativity and effort involved in the making of the cards.

This is a great project to do with your kids and use up all those little suckers and Halloween candy. If you have any questions, just contact me. Also, you can slow down YouTube videos up there in the settings. I tried it once when I was trying to teach myself piano. I still can’t play piano, but I’m mastering the art of making time-lapse videos.

Happy Tuesday, my friends.
