Not peanut M&M's, but they have pretty colors, and taste good.

A Gift That Works

18 x 11,5 cm
Roland came home with a small gift.  When he handed it to me he said something to the effect that I could eat it after I painted it.  I could take that a couple of different ways, but I know Roland, and there were no strings attached.

Speaking of Spaghetti

There was a discussion on Facebook about who makes the best spaghetti in town.

The Goldenish Egg

11,5 x 9,5 cm
I don't have the hen that laid this egg.  But the egg wouldn't bring much money anyway.  It's not a golden egg, it's a goldenish egg.  And it's wax.

My daughter's nickname is Tang, but she probably doesn't know it.  My other daughter and I were texting one day, and predictive texting wrote "tang" instead of the sister's name.   I didn't notice before I sent it off, and the texting daughter wrote back laughing, so we dubbed the sister Tang.
To texting, and people we love.

I painted this awhile ago for the rectangle challenge on DailyPaintworks, but wasn't sure it met the requirements after all.
There are two pieces in the bucket that we actually call Küchenfreunde, and they will probably be a painting themselves one day.

My Little Red Car

The background is more yellow in the painting.  But this red is better than the ones that show the best background.

Sugar and Spice and Dice

12 x 9 cm
I was looking for antique dice with a lot of character, but I found these round dice in an art museum gift shop and found them irresistible.

"Something's Gotta Give"

20 x 20 cm
Now I know from the DailyPaintworks challenge that there's a Pantone Color of the Year.  This year it's Tangerine Tango.

What's For Breakfast

18 x 24 cm
I have memories of opening my eyes very in the morning to see a face right next to mine, and the voice of my young daughter bringing me out of my sleep by asking, "What's for breakfast?"

The Queen Is In

18 x 24 cm
Amy loves to roam the neighborhood, but also takes care of responsibility at home.  If I'm sewing and have fabric laying on the floor, she comes to inspect it, then lays down right in the middle to take a nap.  If I have a bunch of newly gessoed boards laying out to dry, she walks across one or two, leaving paw prints.  The board this is painted on, was autographed by Amy.

Finding the magic of Christmas in the busy month of December is not always easy, even though it may be simple. As simple as taking a piece of chocolate from the Advent Calendar each day, looking at the paper mache figures that represent some Christmas traditions, and choosing one to replace the chocolate.

The magic of Christmas simply comes from the heart.
