Snow Day

I woke up to snow today; which is an amazing thing when you live in Georgia. Because of this I completely lost track of my day. I’ve been playing in the snow with my daughter and our dog Cassidy, photographing our winter wonderland and sipping on hot cocoa. In lieu of the usual Get Inspired post, I’ve decided to share winter art a la EBSQ.

Martha, a Black Cat Cookie Angel Art Doll Ornie - Lisa Monica Nelson

As much as I love the holidays, I love making a few pieces of holiday art each year. Be it Halloween or Christmas or even Fourth of July, it’s a fun endeavor that adds to the richness of the season. Now that I have grandchildren, it’s wonderful to see the older two (ages 4 and 2) making glitter stars and cotton ball snowmen. I’m a member of two juried holiday art groups — both of which sell on Etsy — American Holiday Artists (AHA) and Magical Holiday Artists (MHA).   Please come visit us, or perhaps consider joining us, if you too enjoy holiday art. Happy Holidays! – Lisa Monica Nelson

Twelve Days Of Christmas - Juli Ryan

Winter is by far my favorite season because of the holidays.  Holidays have always been a very important part of my life.  I grew up in a troubled family, but somehow Christmases were always perfect!  We lived in the country and we would walk in the snow from house to house caroling.  Our neighbors would then supply us with plenty of Christmas sweets and hot chocolate.  Pure joy!  Our house was always brightly decorated, we would eat wonderful meals together and of course there was Santa!  I would many times be the first child up (I am one of eight) and wait by the tree searching through the presents!

To this day Christmas is a big deal in our house.  I try to pass on this love of the season to my kids.  We bake cookies, make gifts together, and decorate our home. The spirit of giving and love is in the air!  The only thing that is missing is the caroling…I’m still working on that! – Juli Ryan

Pink Poinsettia - Ulrike (Ricky) Martin

Growing up in Germany, we would usually have snow during the holidays, and snow meant building snowmen! To me it also meant being home by a warm fire and drawing pictures of snowmen and children sledding – to my heart’s content. Christmas was greatly anticipated , since I knew that I would receive more Art supplies and books. (My mother never repeated her mistake of giving me a doll one Christmas – I never gave it a second glance – I was only interested in the colored pencils and drawing paper!)

Now I live in SW Florida , and the temperatures often reach the eighties in December. None the less , when the end of November rolls around, I get the urge to paint snowmen, Santas and my beloved Poinsettias. The warm and fuzzy feelings of nostalgia and memories of wonderful family Christmas days  are with me – as I paint and paint and paint! – Ulrike (Ricky) Martin
