the secrecy of holiday gifts

Because Christmas presents are often times a surprise, I will avoid posting with photos of gifts we are making and giving this year. That being said, the only spoiler is that my first painting will be a product of the palette below. I'm trying out my oils again!

Also, I really love Christmas trees. We can't have a real one this year because of the fire code in our apartment complex. This 3' artificial tree will have to do, accompanied by a pine scented candle. Just like the real thing. Thanks Mom!
