Always Tomorrow

In the well-sung words of Clarice the doe, "There's always tomorrow/ For dreams to come true/ Believe in your dreams/ Come what may...Tomorrow is not far away!" Here's to an uplifting, creative 2017! Happy New Year!

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." 
--Isaiah 9: 6
Merry Christmas! Hallelujah!

Tiddleybokken Toy Shop

Tiddleybokken, the mischievous Christmas elf, being oh so industrious in Santa's workshop. (I suppose he may have been inspired by the Leggy wallcovering to put his toes up for a bit!)

Christmas '48

My great-grandmother wrote this on the back of her desk. Note her teacherly penmanship! I absolutely adore finding little scribbles like this--it's insight into past lives, and past Christmases!

The Sugar Plum Fairy's Adventure

This is my children's book cover illustration in response to a contest prompt from Lilla Rogers Studio. You may have noticed the little Make Art That Sells image on the side of my blog. I'm thrilled to say that I am taking MATS A & B, Assignment Bootcamp, and Creating Collections for Home D├ęcor, which will bring me into fall 2017 with creative goodness! I'll probably be sharing some of my projects here and there along the way, so stay tuned! Here goes a long-awaited artistic adventure!

Frosted Frolic

My Frosted Frolic design is up for voting in Spoonflower's Snow Day challenge! The way hedges and topiaries look in the snow fills my heart with joy, so it was satisfying to capture that in this design.
