Creative output in a busy day


This is my post nr. 50 of this blog! ^0^ yaay! 
Finally, finished with math tests for the year, 
and only one and a half week left of school before christmas^^

It has been -10 degrees celius or more every day, so I have only worn big wollen clothes in several layers >.< reeeeally boring, but I would rather stay warm and comfortable than dead-frozen and stylish! Winter has always been like that, and it will probably continue to be onwards, but I will try to dress interesting in the weekends ;-) 


Today, my mom and I visited my godmother and did something we do every year around christmas: 
we made confectionery! ^^

^^^My main responsibility was making these ^^^

They are dates, in marzipan, with a white chocolate coating and dark chocolate drizzled on top! *V* 
My absolute favourites! sooo good :D
We also made roasted almonds, cognac-currant-marizpan-chococolate balls and something called "chocolate dream" which is basically a big mash of crackers, nuts, coconut and chocolate in a pan :3

We usually make other things also, but this year we didn´t bother :P 
It still took around 4 hours to make everything though ^^"



Otherwise, through this week, I have been a bit artistic also!
I managed to finish my Adventure Time fanart with Fionna and Cake,
 and since I became so happy with it, I decided to put it up here:

The hair is my favourite part! I like the shadowing and the gradient colour ^^

I spendt around 4 hours colouring this, and tried to make sure to pay extra attention on getting the shadowing and highlights right :3 I like the sword also, 
even though the shiny spots on it turned out a little too small, and hard to see :P


Next week we have two oral presentations and three submissions at school, so it is YET another busy week... *sigh* My teachers just HAVE to stuff in something for us to do until the very last second before our holiday (we got a new project this week, only twoo weeks before vacation!), so I can hardly do something for myself a single second of the day! >.< 

I want to update my blog a lot, but with this schedule, I am happy to even get sleep! 
Other than school, the time approaching now is so lovely >w< the traditions, the songs, the presents, the meals, the familiy time <3 



Are you busy with christmas traditions also?


nothing more to say but
