Scribble Picnic: Forest

I'm sure this sweet illustration isn't a surprise! For those of you who know me, I LIVE to draw the forest with darling woodland animals living life, celebrating every tiny joy along the way. I've drawn quite a few bears in the past but never a poppa and his sweet cub. He's a keeper for sure!

The snow is gently falling for the first time this winter here in Kentucky. It's quite beautiful experiencing snow in a different state for the first time in about 10 years. I love it. It's magical and I feel sweet little stories rising up in my creative soul on this cold, wintry Thursday morning. I love the beauty and wonder that comes with the snowflakes tumbling down. Although I'm not a fan of the cold temperatures, it's perfect for snuzzling up with hot water bottles and sipping tea.

This week, I'm bringing some of my yummy warm, hand-made raisin scones with strawberry jam to Michael's Scribble Picnic. I do hope you enjoy them!

Mr. Muffles' Journey

Mr. muffles fast asleep on this chilly Autumnal evening. He will soon rise in the early morning hours and make his way to Waddlingham (A village on the edge of Hollowbrook) to pick and store berries before the winter months arrive...

Just a sweet little peek at an illustration I've been working on for awhile now. I'm (sadly) not producing as much work right now recovering from my fractured spine. Some days it hurts to breathe! I'm 5 weeks in and although some things have improved, there's still alot of pain in my upper back where the fracture is. I've got several months to go for a full healing. It's challenging as I don't enjoy sitting around and resting but I'm learning every time I get up just how important it is to stay in bed in order to recover. Oh dear.

Wishing a lovely weekend and upcoming week to each of you. I promise to visit everyone when I'm strong enough to sit and write for awhile. x
