We are getting ready for the holidays this week! We got a little off track cos I came down with a terrible cold all weekend and I am still trying to get better. I hope everyone has a good holiday season! Happy Holidays!

Here is one of my favorite wintery outfits to wear lately! This outfit is a honey-colored sweater that I think I got at Anthropologie a while ago. I love it cos it is so warm and wooly! And I love the ruffle and the color, too. I paired it with some cute copper brown knickers, angora knee high socks, and my white Familevog shoes!
I made this illustration for the Illustration Friday I missed when the word was "sneaky." I thought this was a good word to draw, but I missed the date to enter my link! That's okay. I am back on track now, and was so busy for the last few weeks. I hope you enjoy this drawing of me and Nilla being very sneaky! I imagine this to be us sneaking around peeking at our Christmas pressies that await!

I made some ornaments using my Christmas card drawings and some iron on transfers.
I printed them out and ironed them on to some soft white felt.
Here I cut out the back of the ornament from plain red felt. I left a margin around the image so I can stitch it together.
I just top stitched the two felt pieces together. There is a ribbon sewn into the top, too. I made sure to go slowly around the curves of the snowman!
Right before I got to the end, I stuffed the ornament with polyfill, then stitched it the rest of the way!
Here it is stuffed and sewn up!
Easy as that - they are ready to hang on the tree!

Today was so very cold and windy here in Athens. We went out to run some errands and I almost blew away! Raoul had to catch me! This windy day reminded me of this comic I drew a long time ago. I was going to do a "sweater" theme zine, but I never finished. This is one of my comics that shows sweaters for every season. Do you have a favorite sweater?
