Christmas Cardinals Eat Berries: Daily Art Practice
The other day I was in my room folding laundry when I looked up and saw this beautiful, bright cardinal perched on the branch, surrounded by red berries. Despite there being no snow on the ground, this scene sings of winter. Although I love snow, the only thing I truly love about winter is the holidays. Getting together with family eating, celebrating and playing games is the best! I have married into an AMAZING family, and we all have so much fun together.
To kick off our Christmas season, tonight we are putting out our shoes to celebrate St. Nickolas Day. I made sure to buy candies with wrappers since they will be inside shoes that are worn. I have teenage boys so you can imagine their shoes are anything but sweet smelling.
If anyone has suggestions for St. Nickolas day or your country’s Christmas traditions, I would love to hear them!
Daily Art Practice
I painted a few more pages in my book, Watercolor With Me In The Forest. The exercises are very relaxing when I don’t feel like doing much but still want to paint.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is the Yogi Tea Advent Calendar. My SIL lives in Germany and she sent this to me for Christmas. I am enjoying a different flavor every day and thankfully, each tea is in English as well as German.
Please don’t forget to tell me about your Country’s special Holiday Traditions.
Happy Tea Day,
