As the sun begins to set, we grab our hot water bottles and tuck ourselves in on our comfy sofa. We're finally getting back into a normal groove, including being on somewhat of a regular sleeping schedule. Sadly, it's been a little more challenging getting a hold of my creative mojo after being away from the studio for almost two weeks.  However, I did manage to create this beautiful tribute piece for the recent Paris tragedy while also completing the darling holiday penguin in which I started last year! Oh dear me. :)

With the fourth children's book wrapped up and launching next week, there's now some time to relax and enjoy the rest of this year with my husband and our family. In fact, Mr. Toast and I will be celebrating our wedding anniversary next month and a few days later, we'll be off to the mountains for our annual Christmas in the Cabin with the children.

Stay tuned over the next several weeks as I'll be making some special announcements of the new projects I'll be diving into next year, including a children's book Mr. Toast and I will be collaborating on together! Eek!
