A festive painted pattern & some Christmas hand lettering should do the trick.

I like to think that even though the world is a big place filled with different people, we all come together to celebrate with the ones we love.
This concept inspired my Wander the World ornaments available through Oopsy Daisy.
Hop on over & take a closer look. Bon Voyage!

Winter birds on a blush colored ground. This is a print I worked on digitally inspired
by the arrival of December. I seem to count the winter months down until we arrive at spring. That said I still try to keep my eyes open to the beauty of the cold. Like... brightly colored winter birds, warm teas & fresh snow. (Just to name a few.)

or at least as traditional as my hand will go.
Hope you're enjoying the start of the holiday season!
For me this is the fun part... The imagining phase.
Once Christmas day gets closer I get a little more frantic.
(I'm sure I'm not the only one.)

Check it out! I got a 4 x 6" Stillman & Birn softcover sketchbook.
I tend to work in stectchbooks that are much BIGGER.
Time to just play around is something I look forward to & do in the evening at least three or four
times a week.
With the next couple months being jammed packed I was looking to maintain my
sketchbook play but not make myself mental.
The solution is this mini sketchbook. We'll see!

I was inspired to reinterpret this Josef Frank textile from the early 1900s.
Thought the harvest like theme was very appropriate for this time of year.
Textiles have always held a special place in my heart.
It's what I got my degree in at R.I.S.D.

I don't do a shout out for every month but October I'm fond of you.
You're still warm, the sky swirls with falling leaves, & there's a playfulness to you. A time when kids & adults can play dress up with the reward of candy. Things can get a little scary but hopefully, not too frightening. (you never know anymore)
October, I'm ready for your dark delights!

Here's a piece that I've been working on in a program called Painter.
Years ago I used it on a regular basis. As my projects required more layers & a more universal software I eventually found my way to Photoshop. I've missed all the textures & brush that Painter has to offer & I recently got the updated program. (So crashing is less of an issue now- which is always a huge YAY!)

Labor day weekend is always a little bittersweet.
Summer is my favorite season but all good things come to an end.
Most of my summer check list has been completed:
- -eat lots of watermelon
- -add sprinkles to most things
- -play in the sun
- -keep the flowers alive
- -swim like a fish
- -gracefully let go of the season... (still working on this one)
*Now I'll start shopping for sweaters!
