Day 8. It’s a tradition in our house to decorate gingerbread houses. My kids love it – mostly for the candy. They give me a hard time for trying to out do their decorating. What they don’t know is that I aspire to make a gingerbread house that’s a replica of our house. But every year December is too crazy to even think of starting a project like that! Hmmm, maybeΒ over the summer.

Here’s our setup this year.

  1. What fun! Is it okay to cross over some of my doodlewash prompts with yours? I feel like it is cheating to use the same painting for different challenges, but sometimes time is so fleeting! πŸ€”πŸ˜”πŸ˜‰πŸ˜†

    1. It is fine with me! I totally agree time is the biggest challenge. I made up these prompts bc I wanted to focus on Christmas and I knew if I followed any other prompts that would go out the window. I also knew if I didn’t make the commitment, the busyness of the season would take over and I wouldn’t paint at all!
