*this post was supposed to be here on 1st of December but…I fell asleep 😀
The long-awaited month and my most favorite one has finally arrived! It’s here and it came together with the snow! It couldn’t be more perfect and more beautiful than this!
December caught me painting.
I’m not a professional painter or anything like that, just a simple amateur. And I’ve decided to paint a winter cardinal to be in tune with the weather. Plus I want to give it as a Christmas present to my beloved grandmother because she will adore it and will always cherish it. She loves birds and nature and this will make the perfect Christmas present for her! I must say that handmade presents are the best! Although Christmas is about enjoying each other and being grateful that we have reached another wonderful celebration, I always give presents to everyone as a sign of gratitude because I want to make people happy plus I’m a generous person. So yeah, that moment when your make-up table becomes an art workspace 😀
I only need to find a frame for the little canvas, I’m gonna wrap it nicely and send it to Santa 😉
The weather, the Christmas music in the background, the fairylights and the smell of vanilla coming out of the oven make such a great atmosphere! Are you wondering what am I baking? Well, I made a sponge cake. I haven’t made one for more than a year and it was about time. And in case you want a little personal update, I’m trying to cut out sweets and I’m doing quite well by now but today I had cravings for something sweet so baking was the solution. Easy to bake, simple and nourishing.
Have a wonderful December and hopefully I’ll be more active on my blog these days!
