I love to paint.  There's something super relaxing about sitting down and zoning out and just painting.  Unfortunately, I don't have much time at school to paint.  (And frankly, I don't bring paints to school so I don't get distracted and paint instead of study!)

I sat down this week to paint a few Christmas-y things from around the house.


This is sort of what our front door looks like!


We love old fashioned Christmas lights!!!  I think this strand is super festive.  I'm thinking of getting these printed next year on cards.  


Lopsided Christmas tree.

  4. These are really good. They look like something you'd find on the Kate Spade website.

  5. I love to paint too. I did a lot of it yesterday :) Have you ever used watercolor pencils? They're really fun and sometimes more useful than regular watercolors. I use a water brush instead of a paint brush and it's really great! I use the Koi water brush and the Staedtler aquarell pencils. I also love my Pitt pens because they are waterproof so I can paint right over them! Your paintings look so great and festive!

  9. These are so totally great. These should absolutely be on the front of a Christmas card. I am telling you. I am 52, I would totally buy these cards.

    Merry Christmas,

  10. Carly, these are beautiful! I saw the lights painting on pinterest earlier tonight and thought it was beautiful -- I had no idea you painted it! You are so talented! I think that would be wonderful to have them printed on cards! Great job!
