I normally colour reindeer in shades of brown.  It was fun to change it up a bit this time!  I've still used traditional colours of gold, red and silver though.

Poinsettia

The sun is shining again today!  Yay!  It is really hard to believe that it is summer with the recent weather we have had!  My job involves teaching and coaching at outdoor swimming pools and some days have been really unpleasant - of course the sun comes out now that I am on break until late January!!!
