Sometimes I feel like I’ve gone mental trying to come up with new Christmas designs. The struggle is real but in the end I decided not to fuss and just get down to business. Some simple fretwork, a marbled tree or two, a few sweet Santas and Christmas is in the house.
The main jolly old elf and his helpers made an appearance at this celebration. The helper elves were called out by name as they brought sweet treats to good girls (and boys). Ornaments added to the festive setting. Loosen those belts and let the season begin!
The periodic table has enjoyed a rejuvenated coolness ever since Breaking Bad. Personally, I always thought there were loads of interesting stories associated with the elements (ie: Copper and clean air/water systems and the 1976 outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease OR Iodine and Mahatma Gandhi and the British salt tax. Apparently the British have an inspirational way with taxes and revolutions.). So I’m “breaking” out the elements again- this time to celebrate that jolly, old elf. How does he know if we’ve been bad or good? NSA?
