Hi all! My Mom bought this Santa with a blackboard and brought it home and wrote Happy Holidays on it in chalk. She thought it looked sloppy and asked if I could paint the words on it instead. After I did it I thought it looked kind of plain so I added some snowflakes and some holly. The berries are buttons and the leaves were done with a stamp. I was a little nervous for her to see it since she had only asked me to write a verse on it but fortunately she loved it.
