Around here, I want to stress the true meaning of Christmas.
But sometimes, it's nice to have the whimsical, magical, side of Christmas.
That is why I painted this:
He's so jolly isn't he?!
It was so simple! I first got the idea from HERE, and have been putting it off, thinking it would be difficult...but after my toughest final yesterday, I decided to knock it out. Painting is therapeutic and lately, that is exactly what I need:]
First, I found some old matting board that has been untouched for WAY too long and got to drawing...

I felt like the gold trees didn't "fit" up here, so I relocated those guys and set Santa up on the shelf.

And here is the best part, for $12, you could have a customized version of him!

Now that finals are winding down, I am craving crafts!
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
