‘Tis the Season

 Made this in a monotype class last spring. A number of the leaves were from a bleeding heart, so I brought in the colors from the base plant. (Ferns, a japanese maple, and violet leaves sneaked in there too.) Didn’t turn out quite how I planned. Much more seasonal now than they were in the spring!

 A few favorites:

A while back the Guardian had an article with various authors telling tales of old Christmases. I loved the writing styles, and saved the link to savor over time. (And to be able to further investigate the authors I was unfamiliar with…) It’s always nice to get a sampling of multiple authors in a single piece. They all share a theme of the holidays, and are all a bit dark and quite funny. Enjoy!

Speaking of dark and funny, a snippet of the best adaptation of A Christmas Carol. The Muppet’s version, of course! Though of course, if you take your seasonal guilty pleasures with a quirkier twist, there’s always the Doctor Who episode with Dickens

Blues of December

Had fun playing with the pretty colors of etsy and collected a treasury in honor of the multiple birthstones attributed to December. Blue zircon, turquoise, and tanzanite have all been dedicated to the month. Gorgeous colors all, and they look so good together.

Happy Chanukah, to those who celebrate it 🙂 Eat lots of well fried latkes. Actually, that instruction goes to those who don’t as well…never pass up on the chance for latkes!
