St. Patrick’s Day Flair and DIY Sign

Mrs. Claus

Day 21 in the Christmas countdown. She’s the woman behind the man in the red suit. I suspect she deserves a lot more credit than she gets. 😂 My childhood favorite Christmas movie is “The Year without a Santa Claus.” Mrs. Claus has a big role in this movie, as well as Mother Nature. MotherContinue reading “Mrs. Claus”

A visit with Santa

Day 20 in the Christmas countdown. This was done from a photo of my youngest visiting the Santa at the local nursery. I wish the other 2 had been there because I still have to get this year’s photo. It’s getting a little awkward because the two high schoolers can’t all fit in the chairContinue reading “A visit with Santa”

Candle

Day 17 of the Christmas countdown. This snowman candle holder is one of a set. They are actually one of my favorite Christmas decorations.

Hope I didn’t mess anyone up. So I included cookies in my painting too. I wasContinue reading “Christmas Pajamas and Cookies for Santa”

Christmas Gifts

Day 10. Lots of gifts under the tree today as we celebrated Christmas early at our house with the cousins. On this side of the family my 3 kids have 17 cousins! It’s a party! Take a look at Marion’s drawing here. It’s so fun to do my interpretation of the prompt and then see Marion’s. MyContinue reading “Christmas Gifts”

Reindeer

Day 9 of the Christmas countdown. I started my painting this morning with a pencil sketch of 8 reindeer pulling Santa’s sleigh. First I painted the night sky, then I added shapes for the reindeer that looked like blobs. But I wasn’t giving up – even when my 11 old said, “Want some advice? Don’tContinue reading “Reindeer”
