Reindeer ornaments and Christmas tree greeting cards

I made some ornaments with my kid. Granted I did most of the work since he's only 3 years old. He did paint the wood sticks and picked the pom-poms for the noses. The gluing I had to do myself.

For the greeeting cards I tried finger painting with him but he still doesn't like having dirty hands, so I improvised after the first two cards.
I made a Christmas tree cut out and gave him a painting brush to paint the trees. We used a sponge for the tree trunk because as you can see, he was pretty agressive with the paint brush and the paint got under the cut-out. But it's ok, it makes the tree more festive. I used his finger for the ornaments though and he was really impatient to wash the paint off.

How is your festive season going?

Elves

This is last years Round Robin that MissM started with elf's legs, I finished his body and Linda4atc did the rest. I didn't get it back until February, so I couldn't show it last year.

How's your December going so far? It's been unusually warm at the beginning of this week for this time of year. It didn't even go below 0°C at night. On Tuesday we had 14°C. It felt like spring and I had to take off my winter jacket. Yesterday, of course, we had snow in the morning.

green & black big hair girls


Tomorrow is December and that means advent calendar for the kid. It's his first one. Last year I made a similar version where I put ideas of what to do every day on paper, cut it up and put it in a bowl for him to take out every day.

This year I bought little bags with numbers and threw in toys and candy bars with some crafty stuff to do. I feel like I'm spoiling him too much with toys. And I know it's my problem because I enjoy seeing a smile on his face when he gets new toys. It's not like he needs them but we're all like that with gifts, aren't we. 

We celebrate three different "present-bringing-holiday-men" in our household. First one is St. Nicholas on Dec. 6th. Then Santa Clause on Christmas day and last one is Father Frost on New Year's day. He already chose his presents and wrote to the first two "present-bringers". I haven't told him about the last one yet. But he has a present chosen for that one as well.

How's your Christmas shopping going?

Bathing Ladies Round Robin

Round Robin is a set of 3 cards which one artist starts, sends to another to add something to the set and then sends to the third artist to finish everything. Each artist keeps a card that's why there are 3 in a set.

MissM started this one with the bathtub, Linda4atc added the ladies and I finished with the background.

Happy Black Friday everyone! :))) Hope you get good deals today.

All about the ladies

I was reading a story to my kid and when I went to turn the page, I tapped it. It wasn't a Kindle, it was an actual physical book that I tapped. I felt silly for a moment. 

He got Alice in Wonderland from my aunt about a month ago and it's currently his favorite bedtime story. It's not the original story though, it's adapted and shortened.

What's your favorite story or book at the moment?
