Using acrylic paints and a small piece of wood that is approximately 3"x 3.5", I painted my first ornament of the 2017 season. Inspired by the sun-moon theme, the composition introduces two culturally diverse figures. With contrasting colors, the figures interact in such a way that it is difficult to appreciate both of them at the same time. The ornaments that I will create, will have ribbon attached and be available for $10 plus the cost the shipping. No two will be alike.
I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. It goes by too quickly and seems like there is too little time and money to get that perfect gift for everyone. I have been exploring money-saving possibilities. I may be decorating some plain mens t-shirts. Tie-dye and iron on offer lots of design possibilities.
Maybe I'll design an ugly sweater t-shirt. The ugly sweater tradition has really grown. Many people are looking for that perfect ugly sweater.
Of course there is always baking brownies or cookies. It's fairly in expensive to pickup holiday containers deigned specifically for gifting baked goods.
I was also thinking about sewing some oven mittens or painting some picture frames. There are lots of possibilities. How about a painted rock, critter paper weight?
