Sunday Sketches: Happy Christmas to Everyone!

It was so lovely and appropriate to end this weekend with sharing one of my recently illustrated children's books, Mia's Magical Christmas Eve at one of our local downtown bookstores. The children were wonderful and had fun helping me sketch the red bags and pressies around Mia's Christmas tree. Hayden, pictured above, was such a doll and eager to help me draw!

As you can see above, I've added yet another piece to my ongoing polar bear series. I've been in love with these little guys from the very beginning. If you've yet to see them all, you can visit my website for the special page I've set up for these fellas. If you're really loving them, you can visit my shop for originals and/or printed cards. :)

With that said, I must part for now as our oven is still in need of a full scrub so we can begin baking and making all of the delicious English goodies for our annual Christmas party at our home tomorrow evening. Michael and I will be sure to post photos, so you can feel like you've been a part of our wonderful, holiday festivities. From homemade mulled wine to authentic English scones and shortbread, everyone is sure to have a good time.

Until then, HAPPY CHRISTMAS! Enjoy the holidays and we'll resume on Sunday, January 3rd to not only ring in the new year but to celebrate 6 years of Sunday Sketches!
