I’ve saved the file of the winter barn before I add Christmas things to it. Late to be working on anything for Christmas now. But, it took awhile to make everything balance (a lot of counting lines and spaces) and then fix everything else once I had it balanced. I could have left it wonky, but out of respect to the early barn builders, I wanted to get it as right as I could.… Read the rest
ASCII art spikes in popularity around holidays, especially Christmas and Halloween. I’m an ASCII artist and I display my art and the work of others. I had the idea to group them by niche. Not a really new idea but it has given me some extra insight into how ASCII art is used and when people look for it online.… Read the rest
This year has been a white Christmas for sure. It started snowing on Christmas Eve and has kept on snowing fairly steadily. Today is Boxing Day. First day of the next lockdown. It’s the year for wearing masks, staying sheltered indoors, and believing everything the media tells you.
Typewriter art as a Christmas tree, as a stamp. They have others which look like postmark stamps too. I feel I should try to make my own but I haven’t had a typewriter for years. Source: Stamping All Day – clear Christmas Tree stamp made with typewriter font
Merry Season’s Greetings!
These are some of my Christmas ASCII art. I began making my own ASCII art in 1998.
One thing I have learned from making ASCII art is not to compare everything I do to everything everyone else has done. There will always be someone who does it better. But, if you don’t get discouraged you can create some nice work of your own.… Read the rest
O ASCII Tree…
I love the Christmas tree. It’s my favourite Christmas holiday tradition. I like making ornaments and then sitting back with a hot chocolate to see the tree all decorated, light up, glittering and shining.
An ASCII art tree can be very simple to make. Just some slanty lines and a little something at the top of the tree and you can create a picture representing a Christmas tree.… Read the rest
Making the Christmas wreath is fun, there is so much you can do with them. I don’t just mean ASCII art wreaths. This year we made a wreath with gingerbread men created in felt, beads, embroidery and then stuffed and mounted on a big wire wreath. I have it lit up and sitting in the back window now.… Read the rest
Decorating the Christmas tree is different every year, even if you have the same ornaments. They never go on in the same order or the same way each year.
It’s been awhile since people decorated the Christmas tree with candles. They turned out to be a pretty bad idea when it came to fire hazards. But they did look pretty.… Read the rest
When I smell molasses I think gingerbread and ginger snap cookies. I have gone down the aisle of the grocery store, in the baking section and picked up a container of molasses just to smell it. Usually, I have one around the house. I don’t know if they ever expire, they don’t last long enough for me to find out.… Read the rest
