Happy Holidays everyone!

Pony project: Winter contest winner "Alba Luna" received a final base coat yesterday. She is made from a Rainbow Dash.

I'm painting the moon and clouds right now. They are quite challenging, but lots of fun, to say the least! The designer also wants little silver highlights on the clouds. I plan on giving her silver lashes too, so they can be visible on a black background.

Here's another holiday project - candy sushi. I made a bunch of these as presents this year. They were a huge hit! People liked them so much they didn't want to eat them!

From left to right: dried mango slice with fake wasbi (melted green jelly lime slice mashed with a fork), swedish fish with fruit roll wrap on rice krispy treat, sour candy on rice krispy treat, ebi (marshmallow peep snowman cut into shape of shrimp, then decorated with orange icing with a tinge of red, on rice krispy treat), rice krispy and marshmallow rolls with mini M&Ms and sour straws.

Here's our table decoration: a crystal grow-your-own-tree, some mini figurines, and our new pet fish. Hope your holidays are bright!

Thanks! It took a lot of experimenting to figure it out. I still have a whole bag of leftover candy!

The candy is awesome as is the pony!

I hope you'll take this in the spirit it's meant and not consider me a pain, but bettas shouldn't be in bowls. They're tropical fish and need a heater to thrive and need a covered container, because they're often jumpers and can jump right out of the bowl.

Thanks for the comment, including the ones about betta welfare! ^_^

That fish actually belongs to the girl that I'm staying with. She keeps the house at a very toasty temperature...the fish is probably warm enough because he's swimming actively. There is a mesh cover that usually goes over the bowl. She's aware that they jump. The bowl is pretty large relative to the fish's size and she is good about changing the water frequently.
