Warm and Cozy Christmas

I am happy to say that the tree is up and the living room is fully furnished! 
We ordered the fireplace online because it was difficult to find one to match the house style, 
I finally have a big christmas tree instead of the 3 feet tall kind we had in the townhome!
Xen was a good girl at "helping" putting the ornaments on ..and off! 

Most ornaments were old and ones i made ( see prev post )
One ornament that i had to actually buy from a store was the pinkie pie, pretty on model!
I am starting work on a new storyboard tommorow on My Little Pony, so i will be busy and not blogging much this month. As far as my toys are going i only have a little left in my etsy and my cartel store is still well stocked. 

The other ornaments i bought were from a Cheri Wheeler on etsy who makes 
these cross stitch ornaments, they are all super pretty and very high quality, i can't love these more!!

To complete the comfy home i tried a new bread recipe for Challah Bread. It was a tad under done so i now know to keep it in a bit longer, it is hard when i have to now worry about the fire alarm is so close to the kitchen, i am paranoid of burning anything.. 

Finally the cozy comfy christmas living room is complete!
I took this picture from my "christmas stairs" ( see prev post) 
Now all i have to do is have a big mug of hot chocolate and curl up by the fire.

Hope you all have a Happy Holiday!

Christmas Stairs

When we had our house warming this past summer, a friend of ours said "you have christmas stairs".

I asked what he meant by that and he said the stairs are perfectly placed so when you get up on christmas morning and run downstairs you have the perfect movie like setting infront of you! Well ever since then i had to deliver!

My old tree was like 3 feet high with tiny ornaments,
so i had to make some christmas decorations for our brand new large tree!

I know it is nothing out of the box , by any means, however i really wanted that canadian cabin look..I mean i do live in canada.. with a twist of the scandinavian christmas that i love the reds and whites of. This is mainly due to a obsession of scandinavian style cross stitch i had recently..

Anyways i hope to post the final looks of the living room, it really is coming together !
I just have been a busy post office bee as the orders are coming in for christmas!

Everypony Song!

This is the latest episode that aired this morning and i storyboarded a short song sequence in it!

It is more of a modern style song than the epic musical style songs and i really liked doing it.

A definate reference was the fashion videos you see with the latest line of fashions, i used that look of the split screen to make it look like a fashion magazine. I LOVE style versus hating fashion and i think rarity definately has style!!

This is the only song i boarded for season two but i did some other stuff coming up :D
