Goodness gracious! Where is the time going?! We've really been enjoying the coming of winter and the holiday season......spending time with family, shopping, our first snow (that's melted now!) and redecorating the house for christmas! Not to mention the beginning of basketball season for a couple of my boys, making life extra full, but wonderful.
Even still, I've been able to do some new artwork for the shop! Yay! Artwork is an interesting thing. Finding the time, inspiration and motivation can be tricky at times. Some illustrations have been drawn out on paper for months before coloring starts taking place and then it slowly transforms to a finished product. Other times it will come together very quickly, from paper to a finished product in just a couple days. It just depends and varies from one illustration to another.
Here's Winter Pixie.....she was practically ready a few weeks ago and then just getting the last details finished took time. Well, more like finding the time to really pay attention to it. I think she's a cutie!
Here's the postcard pack (with or without the text):
Miss Lolly, she's just plain sweet:
and how could I resist drawing a Mushroom Fairy.
I have really enjoyed getting these finished lately and I hope you all like 'em too! :)
And just for fun, some pictures I've taken of the kids lately.....
Ava in the snow...
A day trip to Seattle with cousins! (My kids and my brother's kids)
Seattle from the car...
Ava on the peir.....(seriously, I want her sweater! Why don't they make that in my size? why!?)
The tiny white scarf around her neck was made by her brother for her before she was born.
We had a full house for Thanksgiving and we couldn't have been happier! Here's a few pic's from the weekend:
