‘Happy Holidays’ (song written by me)

hhguinHere’s a holiday song I wrote circa 2000. It was inspired by my animation that I made of a Penguin skiing on a candy-cane. It’s possible I got that backwards. It’s been over a decade and a half ago and my memory may have reversed which came first, the song or the animation. I only know that one inspired the other.

I hope you enjoy them!
Wishing you all a Very Safe & Happy Holiday Season!

~~~Happy Holidays~~~
~*~

Gliding through the snow,
On a stripe-ed candy cane,
My heart is all aglow,
As I’m singing this refrain,
~
Life would be so great,
We could really celebrate,
If we treated each and everyday,
Like a Happy Holiday!
~
Oh…
Holidays,
Holidays,
Bringing us good cheer.
I sure wish, the happiness,
Would last throughout the year.
~
Holidays,
Holidays,
Bringing us good cheer.
Lets all wish, for the happiness,
To last throughout the year…
~
There’s magic in the air,
Goodies being cooked,
There’s glitter, bells and bows,
Everywhere we look,
~
Oh wouldn’t it be great,
If we all would celebrate,
And treat each and everyday,
Like a Happy Holiday!
~
Oh…
Holidays,
Holidays,
Bringing us good cheer.
I sure wish, the happiness,
Would last throughout the year.
~
Holidays,
Holidays,
Bringing us good cheer.
Lets all wish, for the happiness,
To last throughout the year…
.
So…
Lets all wish, for the happiness,
To last throughout the year…

Christmas 3 Trees Tealight

I designed and created a Christmas 3 Trees Tealight.
The 3 trees are made melting pony beads and a metal cookie cutter.
I left the trees sort of rough edged like they might be in the wild.
I hot glued the trees together to make them like a tent to set over a battery operated tealght candle.
I made a small red ball out of polymer clay for the top of the trees and painted it with clear glittery paint.
I made a base for the trees/tealight using the same method I made the trees.
I set a battery operated tealight on the base and set the tree tripod over it.0-all-tetrelghtI like the design pretty well. It’s different because depending on where you’re sitting determines which tree you see… unless you put it on a rotating base.tetrelght

Wishing you crafting fun this holiday season!

*just an extra note:
I fashioned a temporary rotating base out of an old music box to make the short video to show you each tree of the tealight lit and flickering.
