It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year~

  Christmas is my most favourite time of the year. ^-^

  I love the warmth of the festivity (and no, I'm not talking about Singapore's humid weather...) I love the good food, the presents, the fact that people have an excuse to be extra nice to other people without seeming creepy...

  I had a wonderful Christmas with my friends and family. We went to the Mona Lisa Exhibition, and then headed to my place to have a Christmas feast. We opened our presents. Good cheer was had. And then we ended the night with eating a wonderful log cake.

I received a parcel in the mail from Under the Ivy.
Look how pretty it's packaged.

They're actually a pair of earrings. It was a nice surprise to have received it earlier than I expected it to. They're so pretty~ The shop is run by just one lady, and she definitely deserves all the support she can get. ^-^ 

The Christmas favours I made for my colleagues.
These are just three of the dozen that I made.
I love chocolates~~~

Pretty birdies in Christmas outfits. 

Christmas present from a friend!
I decided to get the Inktense blocks instead of the pencils.
Also, Art Friend has started stocking Derwent Graphik pens. Read my review of the pens here.

#005 of my Illustrated Poem Series.
"By plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of the flower."
I'm still not too sure whether this will be the final poem for this drawing, but I'm very happy with how the drawing turned out. I wanted to portray that death is beautiful in the sense that we should celebrate what each person accomplishes during their life.

  I know the drawing isn't conventionally festive... But I think it's a good symbolism to the end of a new year.

  I'm thankful for the good company I had. For the good food and delicious log cake that my mum prepared. For the lovely gifts I gave and received (giving gifts is fun too!). And I've come to another year of my artistic career... Another year of blogging... Another year of drawing, sketching, and painting. There've been lots of twists and turns this year, and I'm really looking forward to what 2015 holds.
