(Sunday Sketches) Countdown to Christmas: Day 3


Here's day 3 of my Countdown to Christmas illo_advent. This adorable winter (cat) scene came to life when reflecting upon our family Christmas tree hunting adventures awhile back. It was such a magical day - especially when huge snowflakes began to tumble down the moment we stepped out into the field to select our tree.

Well, I'm already 1 day behind. Day 4 will appear tomorrow, with day 5. We've been busy shopping for the holidays and celebrating our anniversary. Stay tuned for more advent illos!

  1. So charming! While our cat does not venture out for such adventures, I like to imagine he might dress this way to do so. As it is, he truly makes the annual tree, and all the low hanging ornaments, into fast friends once we get it home and decorated! :)

  3. A delightful drawing, the first snows of the year were always magical for my family when they were young.

  6. Love the Advent drawings! And your memory is wonderful too. Some of the best memories and stories are about picking out a Christmas tree.

  8. It has been years since we have cut our own tree ... in fact we went artificial a while back and now we have scaled down the size of the tree. As my children and grandchildren are all grown, a small tree is enough for my FH and me. But I will enjoy the experience of a real Christmas through you ... thank you for this.

  10. Such a sweet illustration....nice memory too. Growing up, we always had artificial trees which I loved. Using real trees for Christmas isn't a big thing here in Australia and this is the first year that I will only be putting up a table-top tree. :)
