The Colors of Your Favorite Christmas Movies


Ah the holidays. A time for friends, family, and traditions. In my family, we watch westerns on Christmas. Don't ask me why. I know friends that look forward to their annual A Christmas Story marathon on TBS. And then there are others that prefer to have John McClane over for a little mayhem around the holidays.

Holiday Flowers

Holiday Flowers


With the holidays upon us, we see many lovely decorations and flowers pretty much everywhere we go. It's impossible to walk into a store of any kind without seeing an infiltration of the traditional red, green, and white. Some of my most favorite types of decorations come in the form of flowers.

The most traditional plant we see this time of year is the poinsettia.

Adding some holiday poinsettia's to your digital designs is a must this time of year.
