OK, so I admit I’ve been hogging the watercolors during craft time with my daughter.

I never used to care for the medium, always thinking it too watered-down (ha, get it?). But lately I’ve been more open to it, especially since I’ve downloaded so many digital watercolor brushes and textures that are fun to play with in Photoshop.

I was having such a great time creating digitally that I’ve been giving it a go in the analog world.

Stuff I'm working on …

Guys, it’s so much fun — AND SO RELAXING. If you have kids, commandeer the watercolors immediately. If you do not have kids, invest a few bucks in your own set.

As far as stress, it might be better than coloring, and I do love to color.

Today I’m sharing 12 free Christmas watercolor printables. Two I made myself, and the other 10 I’ve come across on the Internet.

I’ll kick it off with my new free printable:

12 Free Christmas Chalkboard Printables

I keep waiting for chalkboard printables to go out of style. It’s not that I don’t like them. It’s just that I’ve seen them in rotation every holiday season for the past several years. This year, I thought, I will not see any Christmas chalkboard printables.

But they kept sneaking up on me. In my Pinterest feed. On Facebook. In my blog feed. And the newer ones are still looking so stylish framed above a decorated fireplace.

So I’m going to go ahead and call it: Christmas chalkboard printables are classic.

Now it’s up to you to make my prediction come true. I’m counting on you to keep these things going strong so I won’t look like a fool.

Here, I’ll kick it off with my new free printable:

A little back story. Alexa has been singing “Deck the Halls” repeatedly. To preserve my ever-so-slight grasp on sanity, I forced my hand and played some other, better Christmas songs, including “Little Saint Nick” by The Beach Boys.

This song has been in my head for the better part of a week. You might even say repeatedly. Now it might be in your head. You’re welcome.

There you go!

Print them out and put them all together. Then give one to your beloved on every day leading up to Christmas Eve. If you’re into that kind of thing. And if you are, you should start on Dec. 13 (timing is everything). Or, if you are going the traditional route, start on Christmas Day through Jan. 5.

Ultimate Wall Art Gift Guide

Ultimate Wall Art Gift Guide • Little Gold Pixel

This may be the time of year to deck the halls with boughs of holly, but it’s also the time of year to give wall decor as gifts so your loved ones can deck their halls with art the rest of the year.

Just think about it: Wall decor is one of those luxuries that tends to be put off. You just don’t think about it, or you can’t justify spending money on artwork for yourself.

Heck, my hallway gallery wall was bare for years before I got around to it! (Psst, check out my free printables for temporary wall decor solutions.)

Your gift might just be the thing that helps your friend/family members dust off their frames and switch things up.

I’ve rounded up 50+ items in this ultimate wall art gift guide — something for everyone on your list. I came up with a target giftee for each item. Some of these are based on real people, so if you recognize yourself there’s a good chance it was on purpose!
