Tuesday is here again. I can't believe the Christmas holiday is just about here also. It is definitely going to be a bit more low key for me, as this whole season has been. I am guessing that is true for many of you who celebrate also. I am happy my daughter is coming home on Thursday, and since she is on vacation until early January, will to be spending a few days with us.
I think of this page as my Christmas card page for each of you.
The background was some paper marbling I did this summer, and light colors spoke to me to keep it light. I stenciled the poinsettias with some pink paint.
I kept my stamped imaged in black (and white) as I just love how delicate the background is.
As I once again never got Christmas cards made, this is my Christmas card to you.
FYI. I used to get brutally criticized for my penmanship on my Christmas cards every year by a cousin, my mother and a couple of other relatives. I know I have bad penmanship, but it wasn't funny even if they thought they ( my dear relatives) were just joking around. I swear I am scarred when it comes to Christmas cards. I just see a box, never mind making them, and get the cold sweats. Not joking either. I keep saying I am going to make them, and then just can't do it. Sorry to go on about one of my phobias. I wonder if there is a word for Christmas card writing fear. Smile.
I am my journal page linking up to Tracey's, the meaning of challenge at Art Journal Journey.
For T this week I am sharing a new tea I ordered off of Amazon while doing some holiday shopping.
Has anyone else watched the Mandalorian? My daughter is totally taken by the child (Grogu), and this tea came up when I was searching for some little fun "toy" for her. It is green tea with a slightly "floral" scent. Very nice.
Don't forget to visit with your T day drink at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog.
I've also done a bit more baking, so please, enjoy a non-calorie, no fat taste. I made some sugar cookies and also some gingersnaps or the Swedish word pepparkakor as we have always called them.
I just sprinkled some colored sugars on my sugar cookies instead of frosting them, and I like my gingersnaps plain. I'm not a big frosted cookie person.
It was a fun afternoon rolling and cutting my cookies. Something good to do on a snowy afternoon.
I also made a few other cookies as well as some holiday sourdough bread. You should have seen the mess my kitchen was in after a day of baking.
The kitchen is now clean; baking pans are all put away, and good thing I have extra freezer space.
I will be posting tomorrow and Thursday, but I know some of you are only by on T Day.
Sending you all the happiest wishes for the holiday.
