  • Jessica Chism, 32, always has been involved in artistic and creative endeavors, but didn’t put brush to canvas until about five years ago.
    Now, inspired by nature and movies, she uses painting to relieve stress and express herself, which is hard for the self-professed introvert.

    She has sketched since she was a little girl but learned she could paint after helping with a SpongeBob SquarePants mural in her son’s room. After discovering painting, within six months she completed about 30 portraits, she said.

  • Gingerbread houses are a staple in Christmas baking and decorating.

    The house does not always have to be made out of gingerbread though. They also can be built with graham crackers, a trick I learned in a home economics food class, back in the day.

    First thing you need in making the house is construction materials. Graham crackers should be first on your list and next is a variety of candies to decorate the house. The candy part can be whatever you like. Finding colorful candies in different shapes makes a pretty house. Christmas colors can work, too.
