This week, while B has been home sick and we have been crafting and art-ing. She is making a house out of a box and paper with Santa on top and his reindeer. The fact that it uses a glue/food coloring concoction and unwrapped candy canes makes me think it prolly won't last until next Christmas.

I have been working on teacher gifts and doing a little painting. It feel so good to be back at my art table! I cleaned it up the night before last and now I have a place to work.
These are my winter paintings...(sorry about the backgrounds, that is my very old/well used drafting board and all the stuff I used this week)

"Birdy, it's cold outside."
Large and small. Small painting is my Christmas Giveaway...details at the end of this post.
