18 Days of Christmas - Day 9

Hi, Tina here! Only 16 days until Christmas! Are you ready? I'm not. I never am. Hahaha

I am always so excited for the Christmas season. Every year during this time we try to do more service as a family. We often volunteer at The May-Su Special Santa Program here in the Valley. What I love most about this program is that it is for the families right here where we live. Last year they were able to help 3500 kids. That’s amazing! On Saturday my two younger girls and I volunteered for four hours. It’s actually a lot of fun. It’s like shopping but you don’t have to spend any money. You pick out gifts for a child and then they are put aside until the family can come to pick them up. 

We also volunteer every year on Christmas Day at the community Friendship Dinner. We usually help clear tables, poor coffee, and water and just talk to people. Serving Christ’s children on His day is so good for the soul. 

On to today’s card!! Today is my day to post on the La-La Land Crafts Blog. I decided to go with an image that we colored at the October 2019 Copic Boot Camp. I love the scenery! Winter Molli looks like she is in Alaska. 


Notice the white sun. The sun often looks white here, during the winter as it peeks through the fog and the clouds. 

To give the effect of falling snow, I used the Snowy Hills Layering Stencil art. The one with the dots looks like snow. I placed the stencil over Marci and used a chalk crayon for the snow. 

What are some of your favorite Holiday traditions? I am interested in how other families celebrate this time of year.
