the first Christmas party. day one-hundred-thirty-eight.

ok so I am a little chilly in this photo but can I tell you how excited I was for this sweater?!?!?! I saw it on my dad's co-worker when seeing a Central Park Players show and begged her to let me take it off her hands. My dad got it for me as an early xmas present!  I love penguins and I love Christmas theme sweaters. I actually don't even think this is 'ugly sweater' material because it is so awesome (who am I kidding of course it is, I'm in denial about it because I am in love). I had the joys to wear it to a Christmas party and really had a blast. It was super comfy for lots of party-prep help and chatting around the table. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday with friends and family. I am so grateful to spend it with my family I cherish times when we can get together and do things. 
I pained these Santa Claus on my nails. I thought it was fun :) I also did them on my sister! We are calling them Santy-Paws

I wrapped all my presents in recycled brown paper this year and spent some time turning them into 'cards'. Since I didn't buy many presents this year this was really fun :) I have painted and stamped them before but this felt more personal and fun to do some doodles :) 

Happy Holidays!
