Merry Christmas!

I've not been my usual organized self this year.  
I hung Santa on the door and got my tree up, the cookies are baked and the candy is made.   So now I'll rest my mind and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.
Wishing you and your family a blessed and safe Christmas.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;  and the government shall be upon his shoulder,  and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Isaiah 9:6

Caroling in Winterberry Christmas Painting

Hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas season with all the smells of baking and the joy of decorating your homes.  
Today I will finally get started because I've been busy finishing up my new painting:

"Caroling in Winterberry"

As cozy as Winterberry appears in the summer with all the sailboats on the water and children laughing and swimming at the beach, there is no better time to visit than during the Christmas season.
Blazing bonfires, carolers, and shops decked out with their festive finery make you feel like you've stepped back in time.  While staying at the Sugar Plum Inn you can cozy up to the fire after stepping out for a hot meal at Maisie's Cafe or make a quick run to the Unwind Yarns store for some knitting needles and a new skein of hand dyed yarn.  By the way,  all the beautiful quilts adorning the beds at the inn are from the lovely quilt shop just down the street and Betty is giving a 20% discount through the holidays.

Cupcake Snack Jars

I promise that this is the end of my cupcake ceramic posts.  Yes, these are based on my cupcake paintings and I wish I had some to sell.  I simply don't have time to order and ship in time for Christmas.  You can check for them on Amazon and I've seen some on eBay.  

How cute would this be with some of your fresh baked Christmas treats!

….and for those lovers of the color pink!

Hopefully I will be finishing up my new Christmas folk art painting next week.  I do wish I had more time for decorating.  I'm planning ahead next year!

Cupcake Salt and Pepper Samples

Below are the salt and pepper samples based on my cupcake paintings:

I would love to put a link on my blog for where you can purchase them, but I haven't been able to find one.  They are sold by retailers around the world so if you see them somewhere, please let me know.  It would be fun to find out who is selling them and where.

Cupcake Snow Globe Ornaments

Just thought I'd share the snowglobe ornaments that are based on my cupcake designs and licensed by Westland Giftware:

This little gingerbread house ornament is my favorite!

A cute little Christmas tree snow globe ornament...

This little gingerbread man is cute, but I'm not crazy about the wording.  I'll be changing mine by painting it out and repainting something else.  I could repaint the white area and just use some scrapbook Christmas lettering on top.

A cute snowman to cheer up your day!

I'm doing a little decorating today!  Is your home ready for Christmas yet?
