Chocolate Peppermint Santa : Daily Art Practice
It is hard to believe that it is Christmas time again. I am finally ready to decorate as we just bought our fresh Christmas tree this past weekend. The past few years I have purged most of my Christmas decorations as I was tired of unpacking and packing up decorations that I didn’t really like. I kept them because they were given to me. Now if I don’t like it, I pass it on. I prefer to keep the season fun and stress-free by limiting the amount of clutter. Hopefully by the end of the week, our home will be fully decorated.
What is your favorite Christmas decoration?
I have two. A Belsnickle Santa given to me by my MIL. I am not into the primitive style of decor but I really love those old world santa’s. My second favorite is the Willow Tree Nativity.
Shop Front Challenge
Last week a few of you asked if I was done with the Singapore shopfronts. No, I am not, but I did take a short break to try some other things. I have learned SO much from the Singapore Shopfront challenge on Instagram, hosted by Alice Lim aka @Eurekawanders. I started, very timid when drawing a line and intently sticking to the tutorials. Since then I have branched out to creating these shop fronts on my own and trying my hand at buildings that interest me and are not a part of the challenge.
The Chin Woo Athletic Association in Singapore and is dedicated to many different athletic forms including cultural dance. I enjoyed reading about the Lion dance troupe. I love seeing the pictures of the beautiful costumes. Reference Photo HERE.
The Dopa Dopa Creamery in Singapore makes artisan ice cream and gelato. They have some yummy sounding flavor combinations. The Lychee Oolong Ice cream is one I would love to try. Reference photo HERE.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is The Republic of Tea Peppermint Cuppa Chocolate Tea, Dessert Blend. I love this tea and thought it would be the perfect tea to share for this time of year, mostly because of the peppermint. I am not a huge peppermint fan but the combination in this tea is delicious!
Happy Tea Day,
