Sielograms – I love your peace-joy-hope! The smooth curvy letters give it a nice feeling. It could make a nice Christmas card. I hope you join us and post again.
Adulez – to start a new thread, go to the calligraphy page where all the threads are listed. At the top left of the page there is a blue “button” labelled “new thread”. Click on it and it will give you the box in which to start a new thread.
clairgriffin – It did work! That’s beautiful!!!! I also like the letter Os forming the snowflakes and well done with getting so many Os into the script. Poetry, art and calligraphy combined. It’s wonderful.
You Americans definitely have it busier than us Aussies at this time of year – Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas all on top of eachother! Although the school year here ends in December so it tends to be very busy for families with school kids – with exams and report cards and graduation/presentation nights.
Robin – I like your idea of getting together in September to prepare for Christmas. Or maybe January, lol?
I also haven’t done anything for this Challenge! It has been difficult to get things done leading up to Christmas due to not feeling well – but I am starting to feel better now.
I tried to get some Christmas cooking done. I made “pink peppermint pie” from the Betty Crocker Cookbook. (It was a wedding present form my American grandmother and it’s my favourite cookbook.) Do any of you have that book? Often at Christmas I give all the Australian relatives something uniquely American from it.
This year while making the pies - on Christmas eve - I accidentally whipped one batch of cream to butter and didn’t have enough cream to finish all the pies!
Oh, well. We enjoyed our Christmas day anyway and had a lovely time relaxing with family.
That’s the important thing.
Maybe I will still get some Christmas artwork/calligraphy done in these last three days of December . .
