Hot chocolate is a pretty big deal in our house in the winter months. Nothing quite says winter or December to me like a lovely mug filled with warm chocolate and on the luckier days - whipped cream with mini marshmallows (or as my children know them - Snowman Poo!)
So for my Christmas cards this year I figured I would pass on my warm wishes with some whimisical hot chocolate cheer!
Listening to unlimited Christmas carols while I draw and paint is bringing back memories of Decembers past with family and friends. Some brightly painted cutie cups to negate the darkness of our sunless northern sky. Stars are shining almost twenty-four hours a day now; hence making their way onto every hot chocolate cup.
Have a cup and let warm wishes surround
Hot chocolate dribbles
and marsmallow whispers
Melting memories of all Winters
together as one
Topped with fluffy clouds of cream
making any Snowman smile
Had a absolute blast at the GNAF Christmas Fair this year! Met a lot of wonderful people and got to see (and buy of course) some amazing work from all over the north! The talent which is spread throughout the north is phenomenol - from mukluks to carvings and paintings - with so so so much in between. The north truly is a special and spectacular place!! And the smiles this weekend!!! So much happiness in one place, whether you were a vendor, artisan, customer, or just there to look at and eat all the amazing things. Oh the food - cannot foget to mention the food - in Inuvik we are so lucky as so many cultures meet here and this really shows in the food available. Samosas, curries, chili, macarons, bread, baked goods, and so much more; this weekend was truly a feast for the soul and I can't wait to do it all again next year!!!
A huge thank you and mahsi cho to everyone who bought my work in Inuvik and also in Fort Simpson. I am super lucky to have such a great sister who set up a table for me in Fort Simpson this year! Huge hugs and a million thanks Cait!!
So my kids and some of their friends decided that they would like to earn some money at the craft fair so that they could get Christmas presents. I had quite the little work bee at the house as they unleashed their creativity on the perler beads and shrinking plastic. Boy did they create some neat stuff; and they were so proud of themselves when their ornaments sold.
I am super impressed with the work and creativity they all put into their ornaments, no two are alike!
