Abandoned Sled watercolor
I was inspired to paint this when I remembered sledding down the hill in the winter with my brother and sister. We had an old-fashioned sled like this one which could be steered with the bar across the front. It was fun sliding down the hill and then climbing up to slide down again. I think this kind of sled was wonderful! I hope you feel nostalgic when you look at it.

RECTANGLE AND TRIANGLE CHRISTMAS CARDS
When I use to do paper cutting lessons with children in elementary school, I would use give them shapes like the triangle or rectangle to have them use their imagination and make them into Santa Claus or Christmas Tree designs, using cut paper. They came up with some very interesting "many faces of Santa Claus," and the Christmas trees had some very unique symmetrical objects cut out on the branches within the tree shape. The paper was always folded in half in order to teach the children symmetrical design.

Jack-o-Lanterns Carved with Hot Knife
I buy the plastic pumpkins and draw my design in pencil. I cut the hole on the bottom so that I can save the stem. Then you can get little blinking battery-operated lights. I cut out the negative spaces with a hot knife that you get with woodburning tools. It is quite hot, so you have to be very careful not to burn yourself. These jack-o-lanterns last forever and can be used year after year.

PISANKI AND WOODBURNED CROSSES
I decided to decorate wooden crosses with similar designs as pisanki eggs. I drew on the bare wood with pencil first and then proceeded to burn the lines into the crosses using a woodburning tool. It has different types of points that become heated to a very high temperature and actually burn the lines in the wood. I colored one of the cross designs with permanent marker and then varnished the crosses to make them permanent.
