Happy December!

Well I can't believe that its already December. I've been so busy since moving to my hometown in November that I haven't gotten much blogging or arting done until recently due to the actual move and renovations to our new space. Since December hit however, I've been digging my fingers back into my paints, coloring pencils, papers, jewellery making, and even photography! Got this cute picture of cedar waxwings eating the dogwood berries off the trees in my folks front yard. I love winter birdies, they are so puffed up and adorable, I have been inspired with some painting in the last few weeks, can't post them on here yet, but here is the photo I took.

This is such a time of year for creativity, which is why its one of my favorite times of the year. Not only art gets my fancy, but baking too of course! Nothing inspires me more to paint winter scenes than the smell of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. Yum yum! Will have some pictures of gingerbread cookies that I will decorate soon too! :-)

Speaking of cookies, my hubby Dane, and I attended this years Christmas craft fair in neighboring Lourdes-de-Blanc-Sablon in late November. Along with our He Sells, She Sells merchandise, we sold 6 kinds of delicious (and HUGE) cookies that everyone loved (and devoured!) We had a wonderful time, and it was for a great cause. Usually craft fairs charge per table, but this fair asks for donations to go towards a huge gift basket full of homemade goodies, in which all proceeds go towards a local cancer foundation. Here is a picture of our booth that Dane and I had, (thanks again for the pic Roxanne!) and the baby belly in front of me. Hehehe! Which brings me to the NEXT paragraph!

WE'RE HAVING A BOY! YAYYY!! We found out last week that we are indeed having a little boy, and we couldn't be happier. (Of course Dane thought it was a girl, I thought it was a boy.... I win. ;-D) So the owl baby room theme we are going with works well. He will be brought up with lots of color in his life. I can't wait to make little doodles of him.

Wow, how weird that I have all my paragraphs leading into one another.... cause here is my Christmas doodle for this years card! Dane and I thought to do a "year in review" this year, with so much happening and all. So this is the doodle on the page. It's Dane and I with our biggest present ever.
Hope you all have a GREAT and safe holiday season! :-)
