YAY for the holidays! it's my favorite time of year :) i just got out of school and have had some time to relax. i didn't get to do as many holiday crafts as i would have liked, but i did get some stuff done.
this is really the only craft i have done this year. i have been wanting to make a snow globe for years but have been wary to because it could leak. for some reason i never thought of making one without any liquid. i really like how it turned out and was pleasantly surprised how the snow flakes stuck around the glass to make it look like it was snowing. i thought the hardest task would be painting the tree, but in fact it was removing the adhesive mess on the jar. also, the reindeer was my great grandmothers, "gewy."
even though i made this nutcracker two years ago, i thought i would show it. it is modeled after the possessed nutcracker at disneyland's haunted mansion, the seance room.
now for a song. i thought i would pick something that makes me think of winter. like i have said before, bon iver music is the kind you listen to when you are in the middle of the woods and it's snowing. my favorite song of his is 'the wolves (act I & II). it is just a simple and pretty song. enjoy.
