Brrr and the family are busy getting ready for the upcoming winter
festivities. Today seemed the perfect day to get some decorating done.
Brrrnice decided to take some snapshots of the occasion and send them
to me. We have become quite the email pals.
out with Brrr getting ready to brave the cold and do some work outside.
He is wearing the scarf that Brrrnice crocheted for him last Christmas
and the earmuffs that baby Brrr gave to him. He looks rather dashing in
them doesn't he?
and the family take things rather serious at Christmas time and this
year they decided to put a great big piece of subway art out in the yard
for all passing by to see. The way their home is set up, they were
easily able to affix it to a post out front. This should remind
everyone passing by to pause and reflect for a moment, on the awe of the
Brrr also put some holly bows up all over the place, just to give the yard a bit more of a festive look.
Brrr was busy getting his own yard ready for the holidays, his
neighbour across the street was busy getting his truck loaded with lots
of presents and a tree for the children's ward of the local Hospital.
Brrr and the family live in a town where giving to those in need or
those experiencing unfortunate circumstances, is very important.
Children having to be in the hospital over the holidays is rather sad
and the community wanted to help them feel a little bit better. The
collection they gathered was pretty impressive and Brrr's neighbour was
charged with getting it all over to the hospital later today. Brrrnice
thought that I'd like to see how much was collected and so she took a
picture just before their neighbour took off on his delivery.
up it was time for Brrr to head back indoors and put up the Christmas
lights. After removing his outdoor gear, he decided to don his Santa
hat to help him get into the spirit even more. Now contrary to popular
belief, penguins aren't all that great with electrical equipment. Even
though Brrr now has a degree in Refrigeration and Cooling, that hasn't
helped him with the lighting situation. Brrr seems to have gotten
himself into rather the tangle and of course Brrrnice couldn't resist
taking a snapshot of him this way.
finally did manage to get himself untangled and get those Christmas
lights up. He provided lots of laughter for the entire family much to
his own chagrin.
It was a long day for Brrr and he had
to have the patience of an angel to get through it all. In fact, with
just the right lighting, and if you squint a certain way, you can
actually glimpse a set of wings and a halo!
again, Brrnice offered up the images to her good friend Sandy to turn
into digital designs, just so that all of you can have a
chance to own one of these sweet pics yourself. If
you click on each of the images above, they will take you to their
locations in the store, except of course for the holly bow which is
currently still a freebie that you can grab HERE. However, you better grab it soon because it may not remain a freebie forever.
So many digitals, so many possibilities!
Even though time is drawing close, this gives you some more ideas for all those last minute holiday cards that
I still need to create you might need to create.
Psst...interested in a new freebie? Well, go and check out the new challenge over on the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog. Our theme this month is, Shades of White,
and you can find the sweetest little acorn up for grabs. If you do take the freebie, know
that we'd love to see what you do with it by entering our latest
