ice storm || watercolor

Monday, December 28, 2015

It was a splendid Christmas. We watched the Nativity Story, ate many snacks (CHOCOLATE!), played games, opened gifts, spent time together, painted with my new watercolor kit, hung out—oh, and beat my Grandpa at chess. Oh yeah! I just love the watching the Nativity Story..it's such an amazing movie. It's the real reason we celebrate Christmas, for Christ's birth! <3 <3

(Can you people tell I love kraft paper, and artisty stuff??) Watercolor is AMAZING, people. My sisters and I made out own planners..it's that time of year again. 2016 is right around the corner. (doesn't 2016 looks nice, I despise writing 5's, a 6 looks so much cleaner...ahem!) Oh, and why is it that the dollar general does not have calender's yet?! Seriously?! Oh, and my dad hung my wall art up, so I'll hopefully be able to do a room tour soon. :)
This happens every year.
*no snow for Christmas*
*two days after, starts dumping snow*
Yeahhh, we're in for a ice storm. If you could pray, that'd be super. It's very likely we will lose power—if we do *uses weatherly voice* "it will be for a long duration". The roads are going to be really bad..from 1/4 to 1/2 inch of ice on the roads..sleet, rain, snow...gusts of wind from 50-60 MPH. Please pray we don't lose power. :P

doesn't 2016 looks so lovely?
how is the weather faring for you?

  4. Oh wow, your water color set looks awesome! Are you going to post pictures of some of the things you paint? =)
    I will be praying!
    2016 does look nice. Though it will probably be June before I get used to writing it. XD
    The weather was all balmy here, we had a beautiful 80 degree Christmas, then it froze last night! I was so disapointed. But, its not nearly as bad as ice storms. =P
    Stay safe!

  6. I just love Christmas! But not the bad weather! I will be praying for you guys. It was 70 degrees on Christmas Eve and 65 and humid on Christmas Day. Yeah, the fans were on and the windows were open. 2016 does look a lot better...especially with that being the year I graduate;)

  8. Ooh! A room tour would be neat! You lucky thing... lovely arty things! :) :P
    We're having quite warm weather... one of the days two weeks ago hit 36 degrees Celsius (that's almost 97 Fahrenheit) and today feels pretty hot too! I've never had a white Christmas in my life, with it being summer over here! Haha. :)

    1. lol! I have yet to watch your art videos you posted on your blog..but I can't wait to! Arty things are lovely...and such fun. Have you tried watercolor?
      Goodness! It would be strange for me to have summer weather in Christmas time, how is the summer for you? It's rather cold here. ;)

  9. I will be praying. We just got snow yesterday. On Christmas Eve it was really warm. Christmas Day was the same I'm pretty sure. We had an icestorm about 2 years ago. We lost power for around 16 hours. But to be honest, I love it when we lose power. You have to walk around the house with flashlights, and no electricity so you get to read books. (I love reading books.)

    1. Thanks, Victoria! <3 Thankfully, we didn't lose power. :D We've never lost power in the winter that I can remember, just for a couple days in scorching heat in summer. lol. Yes, books!!! Walking around in the dark can be a bit precarious, flashlights and much appreciated. ;)

    1. I'm actually organizing my room today. (I love organizing. ;) ) Same here, chunks of icy sleet..now it's sunny—but the sleet is melting into slush which is not good for the roads. :P

  11. Yes, I LOVE The Nativity Story. It shows Jesus' birth in such an inspirational way!

    Ice storms are the worst, except that everything looks beautiful afterwards.

    P.s. I love your blog- it's really amazing!
