Christmas week is finally here, and last night, we finally got a bit of snow that stuck around til morning. Of course it has all melted now by the afternoon, but it's something, right? Today's theme in the CNTCWC is Christmas Food, which has already been on my mind as we get preparations done for Christmas day. I toyed with several ideas for what constituted Christmas food, but the one that *always* makes me think Christmas and nothing else is gingerbread houses, so that was the inspiration for today's manicure.
I knew I'd never be able to get the detail on such a small space using my available tools to create a full gingerbread house on a nail, so I wanted to grab aspects thereof and tried to work those in.

And now for something completely different:
As I come to the end of this post, I feel like I want to say something, and ask for a bit of support from my readers. Last night I got a bit of bad news that I'm still a bit shaken about; my mom's dog (formerly my dog but my mom fell in love with him and pleaded to be able to keep him) was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, so he's starting medication to hopefully alleviate his symptoms and extend his life. He's already a little old man at 11 years old, but I always figured he would live to see at least 15 or so, and the idea that his heart is failing him just breaks mine. He's always been a very sweet, very playful, very friendly little dog, if a bit annoying and face-licky (it's just how he shows his love).
