Calm + Bright

 
I just ate a sugar cookie for breakfast and the lights on the tree are going full blast, which can mean only one thing: it's time for me to head on out and do some fa la la'ing.

Hope you're having lovely holiday seasons! It's been busy here, wrapping up a book cover and starting sketches for something new and exciting (more on that in the new year). I also volunteered for this year's Candlelight Stroll at Strawbery Banke. I had the best time playing a WWII Air Raid Warden (that hat sure does make you feel like you mean business).

But right now, I'm off to spend the next few days with my family. I have pies to bake and tunes to listen to and general seasonal frivolity to partake in.

So Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Peace and Joy to you and yours. I'll pop back in sometime before the end of the year, but in the meantime, here's wishing you the very happiest of holiday seasons.

Hey Soph,

Have you tried making homemade notebooks? There's some great tutorials for that on Pinterest. And an IOU for a drawing of the recipient's choosing is fun. There's always making coupons (i.e, one free home cooked meal, gardening help, etc.) is creative and doesn't break the bank. Hope this helps and Merry Christmas to you, too!
