edit: I know I spelt “remember” wrong in my painting. I’ve fixed it now.
The day after Thankgiving is traditionally a boring day at my house. After we all band together to transport boxes from the attic to downstairs, we do nothing while my mom begins the Christmas decorating process.
We decided that would change today.
Firstly, my mom decided that she would clean out the attic after getting all of the boxes down. During that, she found me a few new toys.

Secondly, my sister and I created a new holiday. The day after Thanksgiving is now Literary Art Day.
I was worried about the blending of the black and red at first, but I think it worked. It looks better in the finished product. I promise I am not a Coyote!! 🙂
Kacie fretted for an hour over how to write her words. She couldn’t decide what to do in cursive and what to capitalize. In the end, she wrote it all in lowercase except for a few words.
|She chose a quote from John Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars”|
|I chose a quote from Erin Morgenstern’s “The Night Circus.” I messed up on the “e” and had to paint over it.|
|My finished project|
|All three of the quote painting things I’ve done.|
One hour after finishing and taking all of the photos, I was uploading the picture to Tumblr. I realized I spelt a word wrong.
|I rushed into the kitchen and painted over the egregious error.|
|I think aesthetically, it looked better before I fixed it. I had to though. I couldn’t leave an error like that.|
Thirdly, after we painted, we succumbed to the Christmas spirit and decorated our trees.
|Kacie’s belongs in a Dr. Seuss book.|
|Here’s my little Christmas display!|
Happy Literary Art Day!!
