For the last couple of years, it has been a tradition that we spend an afternoon getting messy in the craft room, creating ourselves some Christmas canvases. This year Bear & Boy2 picked mini square canvases, which gave us two each. I did two individual canvases, Beetle threw some paint around and had a whole lot of fun, and both Bear & Boy2 created diptychs (boy2 at the top, Bear at the bottom)
Normally we do mixed media style canvases but this year the big boys mainly stuck with paint – I think it was just too hot in the craft room to get their thinking brains on 😂
I love walking down the hall and seeing our canvases from each year – 2017 on the right, 2016 on the left, 2015 on the nib wall straight ahead. Slowly slowly our hallway is becoming a Tunnel Of Christmas Awesomeness!
Today, thankfully, is cooler, so we’ve just had a very chilled out kind of morning with movies and audio books and a quick dip in the pool. My table runner is trimmed and I’m about to start binding. Napkins are next on my hit list, and a wreath. The cleaning is coming along nicely (as nicely as these things do, anyway!). Six sleeps to go…
