This was a bit of a Catch 22 for me. I have never been inclined to plan ahead for Christmas. I'm the 'guy' that is still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve, still waiting to find 'just the right gift', still wondering where summer went? And even feeling mildly annoyed at myself for not buying those ' Christmas Crackers' (the ones with the 'good' toys inside) when they were on sale last January. I can't stand Boxing Day. I am perhaps too 'present-minded'...or 'absent minded'.
So, working on a set of images in October that were heading in the direction of December 25, when I was just getting used to the thought of black and orange...well, it was a challenge. But an enjoyable one and I confess, I even had a big 'inner' laugh realizing at one point I was humming Christmas carols while putting together these digital collages. There are also, as you can see below, several beautiful images and wintery backgrounds that don't point directly to Christmas!
So, for those of you that have already begun your holiday shopping and moving the boxes up from the storage room, then you'll be delighted at the beautiful collection of images from Holliewood Studios now available .here....it's called CHRISTMAS MORNING. And for those of you that just enjoy the magic of winter - you'll find lots to play with too!
For me, well, I'll sit back for another month and a bit....:0)
