My dear friend @handmadenvy got me some practice stamp pads from Nasco for Christmas. I will say they are much easier to carve than those Paper Mate pink erasers! And since they’re so thick, I got to use both sides! These are my second attempt at hand carving stamps. Thanks for a great Christmas gift!

Doodles ... although I’ve seen my drawing improve since I began doodling on a more regular basis, I still see much improvement needed so my goal for 2018 will be to push myself even farther. What’s your 2018 creativity goal?

Creativity meant time in the kitchen today... tried two low sodium meals that shall never be made again. Thankfully, I made these delicious chocolate chip cookies to make up for the lack of flavor in the meals. Does anybody know of “no sodium” baking soda and/or powder? #chocolatechipcookies #homemadecookies #lowsodium #lowsodiumdiet @creativealyice

Space ... originally it was just a black hole and I thought that was cool, but then I got ahold of that gold embossing powder and well, you get the idea.

This was just some leftover paint thrown onto another piece of paper. After my painting session was over, I looked at this piece and was in awe of what I saw... so I added the bird and boat and called it a day.

Every year these beauties come to visit at Christmas. I’ve had that poor nativity scene since I was a little girl. It’s got a few broken pieces but that’s part of its charm; that and the fact my grams gave it to me. The picture is of me at Santa’s Village. We went to this amazing miniature amusement park whose soul purpose was to share a little Christmas magic... and Santa was real... He listened to me, made me smile, and let me tug on his beard. And his cheeks were naturally rosey and his belly shook like a bowl full of jelly.  As for the quote in the background ... my mom gave that to me during a very trying time in our lives. Every time life gets hard it reminds me to stay strong and keep fighting. #santasvillage #santavisit #santaclaus #santaclause #nativityscene #familyheirloom #christmasmemories #skyforest #lakearrowhead #lakearrowheadca #southerncalifornia #socal @creativealyice

Today I experimented with embossing powder. It sure is a tricky substance, but as you can see from the photos (swipe), I started to improve with practice. The idea for these 4x6 paintings was to go for a more rugged country feel with just a splash of “spice” and I think I accomplished that.

Today my creativity revolved around baking. Have you ever tried to find prepackaged food without added sodium or salt? My goodness it makes you want to scream. My husband was recently told by his doctor to cut out all added salt and lower sodium to 1500 mg or less per day... that’s 1/2 tsp of salt or sodium per day. It is a complete lifestyle change.

It’s strange how sometimes the iPhone cannot pick up the correct colors but the scanner can and vice versa. Today, the scanner won.

I just love this tree, but what to do with the right side??? Art by Alyice Edrich #christmastree #acrylicpainting #greenbackground #whitetree #tree #christmas #4x6challenge @creativealyice
He simply cannot resist the Christmas tree. The cats have already climbed it, tried to eat it, and knocked off the ornaments. #christmastreeandcats #catsandtrees #christmastreedilemma @creativealyice
The struggle is real... had to pull out the Martha Stewart unbreakable ornaments because the cats still don’t understand that Christmas trees aren’t for climbing and ornaments aren’t cat toys. #marthastewartornaments #marthastewartdecor #marthastewartdecorations #catsandchristmas #christmasdecorations #shatterresistantornaments @creativealyice
