On Finding The Time...
I'm thoroughly bored with just how much time organising Christmas takes, especially when you seem to be doing it single-handedly. There are things I would much rather be doing - like painting this wolf for instance. I started this acrylic last week and it is still very much in the early stages. It is proving to be complicated as the fur is a mixture of white, brown and black hairs, but that's the kind of challenge I like. Taking time out to shut myself off and paint for a couple of hours keeps away the Christmas madness!
I bought this gingerbread house kit for Stacie and I to make together as we have done in years gone by. However, she told me she didn't want to do it (grr...mumble...) so I thought I would knock it up by myself. Yeah....this is the last year I shall be doing a gingerbread house. I thought it might be easier if I decorated the walls and roof first before assembling it as my piping skills leave a lot to be desired at the best of times. Turns out I'm not much good at piping on the flat either, it's all a bit shaky and without the fun of having Stacie help me, it just became a chore. I think we'll just eat the thing...
On the needles: a Niffler - yeah, I haven't got a clue either, I'm winging it.
