A Colourful Christmas, paint party Friday!


Here is the tutorial for this last minute bow I made!
So exciting to be able to scribble on a piece of paper and come
up with a last minute bow on a host  gift for my Brother who
hosted Christmas dinner on the 23rd!
My Brother and Niece
My niece helped her dad  cook  a spectacular dinner, 
we brought baking and  the raspberry dessert!
I snitched one of Cupcakes photos off instagram!
Dinner at my Brothers
My Niece and her beau together six years today!

Cupcake and Beardo at his parents home Christmas eve! They draw names!
We are  such colourful people that it's no surprise
we brought a  colourful   mango salad and raspberry
 desert  to Beardos parents house on  Christmas Day!
Cupcakes sister-in-law  had a friend bring these 
cookies all the way from New York and they were
AMAZING!! Also colourful!!
Even though we don't exchange gifts Cupcake saw this awesome 
 book 
before Christmas and thought it would be perfect for me! 
It was twenty two dollars and she wanted to see
if the price would drop after Christmas!

Browsing in a completely different  store 
  she  saw the book  laying alone on a table 
waiting to be picked up! Only $7.99!
I LOVE it, there are so many tips and ideas of 
things to draw! We were very excited!!

Christmas night taking  ussies!
I'll be back to wish you all a Happy New Year!
For now enjoy the holiday, be safe and don't drink and drive! 
I can't wait to dig into my new book!! 

Was there anything colourful about your holiday?
