Cold weather is finally hitting, bringing with it the desire to get ready for the holidays.
This year I am making ornaments. I haven’t done this in a few years so I am really excited! I love expressing my creative side. Painting is so fun!
It was difficult to get a picture of these little guys without getting some glare. They are painted on used flats from all the canning we’ve done. I figured why not recycle! I will hang them either on a small twine or a narrow red gingham ribbon I’ve had hanging around.
It was funny as I was painting them I told Nate that I was concerned because I needed some different colors of paint. I wasn’t sure if what I had would work for the little gingerbread people. He said, “Well you have brown don’t you?” I said, “Yes, but I need a couple different hues of brown.” He said that obviously he was a guy because “brown is brown is brown”. I assured him that there are many colors of brown. He asked me who was going to know the difference. At which point I stated that I would know the difference.
Poor guy! He got stuck with a creative perfectionist. Too bad that doesn’t carry over to housework!
I have some other projects that I can’t wait to get going on! Yeah for Christmas!
Are you getting ready for Christmas? What kinds of creative things are you doing?
