Holiday Wishes



















I confess that up until a few days ago I found it difficult to get into the "Christmas spirit". Between work and trying to navigate family challenges, I didn't have a lot of energy left over to do shopping and decorating, especially on a tighter budget.


However, there is something magical about this time of year that seems to lighten one’s spirit and watching our home transform with Christmas lights, gifts under the tree and a cheerful fire in the woodstove helped to create the mood.



































With these cards I designed I hope to capture those same feelings.

















The best thing to giving is the giving of ourselves and I wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and all the best in the coming year.

Really enjoyed your Christmas cards... especially the mice chorus singing around the candle (the conductor - what a cutie!). Your paintings and appreciation of your natural surroundings are inspiring. Thanks for sharing!

You also have some wonderful scenery in your area.
