A Little Scandinavian Woodland Christmas


Christmas is coming and there's no better way to celebrate than with a Scandinavian Santa and his woodland family. Uh huh. This week's Scribble Picnic theme was more fun than I could have ever imagined! Everyone is dressed in their favorite Scandinavian sweater, to boot!

Now that the candles are lit, we're off to Michael's wintry picnic. It may be getting a bit chilly out but there's plenty of my famous hot chocolate for everyone. Oh, and I also have a basket of warm, chocolate chip muffins. If you close your eyes, you'll capture the waft of that delicious smell coming up over the horizon. Mmmmmm

  10. What more can I say other than "you're the best" Alexandra when it comes to endearing characters/creatures cavorting in Nature! Santa is precious too here - I've always loved the Scandinavian versions - you just know they don't have glued-on beards and plastic boots, only the real deal here!
    Fabulous - you and Michael have both done amazing art for this week's challenge XX

  11. Well, I think Mary, above, pretty much captured everything I was gogin to say. I love adore St. Nick here and those hedgehogs conversing off to the side, the tree, those amazing sweaters, etc. It not only draws one in right away but then warms one up too. I LOVE it. Thank you. Perfect for the theme. Thank you so much. I know this too ages but it shows your love of this season so well too. Oh, and btw, I think I've already had plenty of those muffins. Hee. In fact, I'm rather thinking of microwaving another and smelling those choc wafts my way again let alone that melt-in-your-mouth divine goodness. :)
