Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there.

Do you like to create at Christmas? I do! I love to create everything from large Christmas art to the cheesiest of ornaments. (You can see some of them on my Instagram) This year I've been painting Santas. 

Without realizing it, this is a tradition carried on from my mom, who also painted Santas. She painted them on wooden plates, on cypress knees, and on specially cut pieces by my dad. I treasure them all and display them in my house every Christmas.

When I think of Christmas, I think of tradition. And I love the sense of belonging and connection traditions bring. The Santas in our family have become a legacy. They are works of art to be handed down through generations and branches of our family.

This is what our work can become. 

Take a peek into our Santa Collection and see if you can think of ways your art can impact your family legacy.
