Thermofax screens

When my husband and I drove over to the trail today, we stopped at the mailbox and my thermofax screens were there.

I'm so thrilled! They will be used in many future projects. The larger ones are about 5" by 7". I wanted to see how they would turn out before ordering some larger ones.

I love the patterns that resulted from my original single doodles.

We gathered a few branches which I strung onto two corners of my deck. No going across the rail this year. I'm keeping it simple. They will have pinecones, a bow, and snowflake lights added though. Between my daughter who is expecting in two weeks and my pending shoulder surgery, I thought I'd get a few things done early.

Last year, My husband wired them up to a timer that put them on at dusk and off at 11:00PM. It was encouraging to see the light up time get a little later each week in the winter.

I've just made myself a cocoa chai tea- my invention- and I'm heading to the studio. Start with almond milk, heated. Steep with a chai tea, add dark cocoa, honey to taste and cinnamon.

I love the patterns on your screens and I'll be looking forward to seeing how they're used in your work. Enjoy the tea.

Cocoa and chai is such a nice combination.

You're well organised for the Festive Season but a good idea to start early with an arrival expected so soon.
How long is the recuperation period for your shoulder surgery?
