Happy Holidays and lots of Happiness for Year 2019!

Happy Holidays to all,
from all of us here in DiD!

We have had a cold freezing
days and snow is coming more and more
and more.... and will be coming the
next 4 months I believe.

So made a few ATCoins for the theme.

Using images from Gecko Galz Snow Queens Collage Set.

And we also wish you

Hope you'll find the time to play with us all year long, :)
(and still time to enter our December challenge HERE)

"Devious" December

It is that time of year that Santa is getting
his red coat dusted, making his elves busy and his
reindeers well in shape.

And also time to look back and think,
have you been naughty or nice ...
because Santa is coming ....


The USA seems to dive headlong into one (commercial) extravaganza after another, starting with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and all the Christmas pressure.  This year NZ has adopted Black Friday as well.  It's enough to make anyone stay hidden under the blankets until about 15 January!  And sometimes one wants to remain hidden forever.
This journal page started as an exercise in interference paints over black gesso quite some time ago.  As I delve through the webs of incomplete memories of long ago darkness it has found its destiny and been worked on:

And another bit to kick off the Holidays (behind) but it is cute grr...

Welcome welcome back to the soon to be cold and dark days of December for the North and welcome to the soon to be toasty days of the Southern half of the World! Personally I wish for the mild and crisp days of Spring and Fall, but they seem to have disappeared many years ago in my neck of the woods!

We'd love to see your spin on the Holidays, won't you share?
Link up below and I'm pretty sure our December Winner will get a lil bit o' happy mail, so link away you new projects!
