Day 6 St. Nikolaus – 24 Days of Christmas

Welcome to day 6, December 6th and St. Nikolaus Day, on the 24 Days of Christmas! St. Nikolaus is another German Christmas tradition that happens each year on December 6th. Kids (and grown up) spend the evening of the 5th scrubbing and cleaning their boots to be filled with gifts by St. Nikolaus during his nightly visit. Or with coals, if they had been bad children and St. Nikolaus’ buddy …

Day 5 – 24 Days of Christmas

Welcome to the 5th day of Christmas! Today is all about snowflakes and to be more precise about Art Deco snowflakes. I felt like the usual kind of snowflake would be a little lame for a special illustration, so I did some research and created some Art Deco inspired snowflakes with straight geometric lines, varying fills and all kinds of shapes. Since snowflakes come in all shapes and forms it may …
