Winter birds

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.)

Tiny & Traditional-

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.)

Fir real (holiday pun)

The Christmas season is here... time for joy & cheer!
Hopefully that's what it brings you. 
I have mixed feelings but I like the sparkly lights so I focus on that.

Fall Medley

Here's a fall pattern patchwork.  Complete with a leaf from paper that I marbled.
I'm not sure where this month is going?  It's been busy!  Seems like I just looked up & noticed Thanksgiving is next week.

Coffee & flowers-

two of my favorites!

*A spread from my mini sketchbook.  I really like working on a smaller scale. (which surprised me as I tend to work large)  I can flush ideas out quickly without investing a ton of time.

Beauty in the dark?

The extra hours of dark get to me every winter.  This year I'm taking a different approach & trying to find the beauty in the extra hours of night.  I got a new book about the stars and some lovely smelling mineral baths.  The pantry has been stocked with special teas. The fire place is flickering nightly & an orange blossom candle sits on my night stand to remind me that things will bloom again!

Feeling Grateful

Feeling fallish & grateful.
The sun came out to shine today!
(breaking a full week of gray)

Woof, Woof... it's wallpaper!

This is some wallpaper I designed for BN International (in the Netherlands)
I love how it turned out!  I'm definitely on team dog. (really allergic to cats)

Dressed Up Digits

Did you have a good Halloween?  Hope so!
I think I have a candy hangover. (ugghhh-sugar)

I made these felt finger puppets while watching the second season of Stranger Things with my son.
(Think I still prefer season 1)
