Tourmaline .’s 2020 Countdown to Christmas

I’m hosting my first ever Christmas challenge this year!

Each day in December, up til Christmas, there will be a new prompt. Share a picture, write a poem, write a blog about your day, anything along the lines of the theme will do!

Post as often or as little as you’d like. Share your links with me on my daily post and I’ll keep a running list of all participants both here and on the daily posts, whether by blog, social media, however you contribute.

If you’re posting on instagram tag #tschristmascountdown, and tag me @tourmalinenow so that myself and others can find your post.

Hope you have a jolly good time!

Here are all the new images I made for this challenge this month, and a collage below of my favorites.
