Whatever happened to 2015?

Wow, this year has just flown by. It's been a great year of learning for me, and I can't wait to see what 2016 brings. I'm working fervently on my resolutions list. I hope you all have a fabulous holiday and find lots of time for creativity and fun in the new year! Love, me.

12 days of Christmas...kinda

I had planned on doing twelve days of journal paintings leading up to Christmas, but things don't always go as I plan, alas. So this is day 5 and I do have a few more I'm hoping to get to. Relaxing and goofing off is fun, too, though! This one is an homage to those sweet old Christmas cards from days of yore.

Better late than never

Hooray! I finally got my greeting cards in the shop, though I grant you, they're a tad late for anyone but the most last-minute card sender. (That would be me!) Nevertheless, it's nice to accomplish one's goals at last. Check it off the list. Be sure to check back — I'm planning to do a 12 days of Christmas sketchbook challenge beginning on Monday (I think!)

Cut and sew holiday gift bag

Yep, still at it with the Spoonflower weekly design challenges! This is actually from last week but there's still time to vote for your favorites. This was tough for me since I really haven't sewn anything since I was 14 years old. So, take my instructions with a grain of salt. They're more like "here's how I would go about it if I was to unpack my sewing machine from its shipping box, which is currently serving quite nicely as a barricade to keep my cat, Stache, from pushing out the screen in the screen door..."

Holiday gift tags and free shipping all month

At last, I've added my gift tag set to my Etsy shop. Also, everything ships free all month. Just use the coupon code SHIPIT at checkout. Don't forget! That's just for domestic. But if you're an international customer, hit the custom order button on the item and ask me for 40% off on your shipping charges. Also new, my 2016 Neighbors calendar, available as an 11 x 17 inch print. I even took out the extra day I had in November!

Deck the halls

Here's an illustration I did for a piece in Baltimore magazine on decorating for the holidays.


These are my sketches. The idea they didn't use was recycled into a halloween sketchbook painting.
No wasted ideas around here!
