My work space

Yikes! Must remove plastic bags and slightly used paper towels! It didn't look that bad until I started drawing it! It looks like an intervention is needed, haha!
Note: The big red dot is a stress ball.

New toy!

A fun gift I received! They will never replace my watercolors, but they bring new energy which helps my creative side.

My Christmas card

Think I will use this image for my cards this year. A bit monochromatic though.
"Carol of the Bells"
Ding, dong, ding, dong
That is their song
With joyful ring
All caroling
One seems to hear
Words of good cheer
From ev'rywhere
Filling the air
Carol of the Bells was first performed in December 1916 by students at Kiev University. The original Ukrainian song is based on an old Slavic legend that every bell in the world rang in honour of Jesus on the night of his birth.)

A few of my favorite things - 1

Eek, it's way past time to print my Christmas cards using one of my sketches! Here is one of my ornaments, I think I will do a few more and see if one of them will work.

My Garage

We had snow today- big, fluffy flakes! When I pulled in my garage, the tools reminded me of summer. Also, they reminded me of all the work I didn't do when it was warm out!
