HWNSNBP has become quite the outdoor floral arranger. He put together these barrels and basket using greens and decorative items gleaned from previous years and newly from the $Tree. The larger ones have solar lights in them that glow after dusk.

So I was able to complete 20 of the 25 doors of Christmas - 21 if you count the door on the gingerbread bird house we made.

Back in April I found a free tutorial that took book page circles and made a 3-D creation. I used pages from a discarded dictionary and with some circle punches punched out 16 circles of each size.

I've missed a couple of door days here and there, but I still have some to share.
There's a little magic going on in the oven here. The gnome is checking on those gingerbread cookies that were on the counter the last time. They are coming alive in the oven and dancing away.
So I posted this for the door of the day but it was actually something that I had done in the past. I meant to put it on paper to share it, but didn't get the chance. It was designed and hand painted by me. It's meant to be our house. We have a few less trees in the yard now since this was painted.

I painted the wood white and found an eye screw from another cast off, glued the pompoms on and added the bow.

Some time ago, I participated in a weekly challenge called Scribble Picnic facilitated by Michael McVean. He and his wife Alexandra moved on to use Instagram as their platform of choice and last year around this time I tried to keep up with their 25 Doors of Christmas challenge for the month of December. I didn't get very far with it then, but hope to do more of it this year. Here you will see the first 5 days of doors. I haven't put pencil to paper for a few months - the desire was there and it wasn't. I think I've been in the art doldrums. Hopefully, this will help get me out of them and back into using up these art supplies that I've been accumulating all these years. I am continuing doing them in an off brand 5 x 7 sketch book with Prismacolor pencils. Most of them have been inspired by doors/scenes I've seen on Pinterest with changes in details, colors, etc. The last one with the cardinal is an original design.
