Sleigh all day!


No pressure. 

It doesn't feel like late December.  We're having a strange string of warm weather days- with today at 65 degrees.

So, no sledding here today. (or tomorrow)

Tis the season


A patchwork of woodland wishes.
I'd rather be in a forest than on the beach.
(I sun burn easily!)

Home (forever)


Home today, home tomorrow, & home for the holidays!
I must admit I've never been so grateful to work from home.
I just ordered a gingerbread house kit that I hope arrives before Christmas.
My son & I put one together every year.
This little candy kissed village might provide some inspiration.

Emotional check in


I did this holiday lettering several years ago.  I like the idea of an emotional check in- especially around the holidays.  It was originally licensed to The Land of Nod for Christmas ornaments. (which sadly didn't turn out well with messy production issues- these things happen)  Once that contract was over I was able to sell the art outright to another company.  Giving this art a second life.  Making me feel happy!

Hope you're doing okay, processing your feelings & taking it day by day.  

Here's a peek at those ornaments.

Merry and Bright


                                                   Cozy sweater sketchbook vibes-


with a little cut out creativity. 

Trying to create some merry moments against the backdrop of such a heavy year.

With every 2020 holiday/ celebration thus far an understandable shell of what 

we traditionally recognized.  On the up side, it's been an opportunity to rethink & reinvent

traditions. (And space to understand what's truly important to each of us.)

One more drop of eye candy.  These brush bottle trees I shot a photo of last holiday season.
(when I used to leave the house)
Made me think.....
a festive shelf forest + bright burst of color = a happy Friday!
Very best wishes & a BIG virtual hug.
