Christmas in July: Family Time

Isn't the best part of the holidays getting together with family and friends for old and new traditions? 

I'm a Christmas nut and we are quite the crafty family so the tree each year is more of an art project than decoration! 

This is a sketch from a dummy book, of course I had to write a Christmas story!  I did mention I'm a Christmas nut, didn't I?


  1. This is just like my memories of Christmas morning except- now I'm a squirrel. The feeling you have as a kid on Christmas morning is kinda indescribable - yelling Santa came!He came! And the reindeer ate the carrots! And Santa ate a lot of cookies!-except when I got coal in my stocking - I wasn't yelling that morning

  2. I would LOVE to see your place at Christmas, Heather!! I bet it would bring the most wonderful feeling ever. Making Christmas as special as it should be. Your squirrel family sketch here is just so sweet and really captures the spirit if the time.

  3. I was thinking the same thing, Joy! I bet you guys go nuts at Christmas! I'm training my son to get into the crafty spirit during the holiday, now to train the husband! ;)

    I really like the little details you have in this scene-foreground and background!
