Pattern-A-Day #25 


A festive pattern for the holiday.

I thought I'd mention that early this morning we awoke to the sound of the 11' douglas fir falling over onto the hardwood floor, shattering ornaments and flooding some gifts with water. I was already headachy with a cold and little sleep... but it will make a good story, right?

Here's how I created this design. I drew freehand circles in pencil in a grid on 1/2 of the page of 9x12" Fabriano watercolor paper without measuring. I added pink petals, turquoise circles {which I later regretted}, then circles inside the turquoise circles and 4 lines around each flower in Payne's Grey. It's part of the December Pattern-a-Day Challenge with A is for Anika

I had to comment just to tell you that you are not alone: We have survived The Great Christmas Tree Crash of 2012, parts one AND two. Probably a dozen broken ornaments over the two crashes, lots of water, lots of consulting on the way to try to make it sure it doesn't happen again (particularly strong discussion this morning after part two). Yes, it will make a great story over the years, especially if it does not become "the first annual Christmas Tree crash." Glad you can keep the perspective. I thoroughly enjoy your posts. Merry Christmas.

The 'disasters' make the best stories!
I am reminded of the saying 'Attitude changes everything' - you embody that in spades. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year.
