It's time for a new contest!
The days are getting colder and slowly we are all getting into the christmas spirit - so I thought it's time to announce a new contest!
This time the theme is:

"Santa's home":

Where does Santa live?
Does he live alone, or is he married and lives with his wife?
Maybe with his reindeers or christmas elves?
Does he live in a cozy cottage or in a modern villa?
How does he prepare for christmas eve?
How does he like to spend his free time?
Maybe he isn't the friendly old man we think he is?

Show me how YOU imagine the place where Santa lives!

It's been fun seeing Father and Mother Yule at home.
This is my final entry for your contest, Father and Mother Claus in the Barn.

They're getting ready to visit all those who celebrate Christmas and Yuletide in the New Year.
The fairy folk are helping. They always make Father and Mother laugh, playing their music and dancing.

I have a second entry here: opinionatedb.deviantart.com/ar… Thank  you so much! That was fun! :D Merry Christmas to you - now I am off to start baking and cooking for everyone's Christmas Baskets!
Malleni-Stock's avatar
That sounds fun :lol: Merry christmas to you too ! :hug:
12PeaceArt's avatar
lol.. it is! But I love to cook. I am doing cheesecake fudge, maple walnut fudge, mini cakes filled with a pineapple mousse w/ a brown sugar frosting, chocolate chip cookies dipped in white chocolate, pecan crescent cookies, decorated sugar cookies, rocky road mini cakes, gingerbread cakes and pumpkin breads for the baskets this year..

but... I just got off the phone with my son (I swear he has a 6th sense about when I am cooking.. lol) and he wants biscuits (regular ones.. lol) in his basket too so I guess the special orders start now! :giggle:

:faint: You could open a store !

This was inspired by your contest. Although, the Yule Father and Mother are best known during the Yuletide. Spring does come to their Home, above the Arctic Circle, during their "off season".
Imbolc (Yule Father and Mother at Home, in Spring).
Thank you.
Malleni-Stock's avatar
Is it just inspired by my contest or do you want to enter with this work ? =)
Can-Cat's avatar
Yes, if it's OK with you, I'd like to enter 2 pieces in your "Santa's Home" Contest.
[1] "Wassail", fav.me/d9k3niw, and [2] "Imbolc (Spring)", fav.me/d9krht8

As immortals who embody Beneficence and Fecundity, Father and Mother Yule might age and renew with the seasons. It's great to think that they still dance, even after all these years.

But, if you think "Imbolc (Spring)" is too mature (Those chemise look more sheer, than they did before uploading.)
Or, if it's not Christmassy enough, then please, just enter "Wassail", fav.me/d9k3niw, in your contest.

Thank you, again.

I just asked because the topic is "santa's home" and I don't see the topic in the second picture :)
