Countdown to Christmas Day 8 (Grandmas House)

This little wintry scene developed from reminiscing about the last house my grandma lived in before she passed away in 2005. I loved spending time there. We had some of the most wonderful moments and every year at Christmas, I'm reminded at just how much she played such an important role in my life growing up. I spent a good portion of my childhood days with her, crocheting and baking cookies. Some days, it's still hard to believe she's gone. To me, she was invincible. Her love for me and others was/is something to always keep close to heart - a great reminder for this holiday season. Enjoy my Countdown to Christmas, Day 8.

Countdown to Christmas Day 7 (Holly & Berries)

It's hard to believe we've been home from England for just 3 weeks! Michael and I were chatting the other day at how it feels like it's already been several months. Crazy! So, how fitting to reflect back upon our stay this holiday season than illustrating one of the many, many English robins I saw, twittering around in the garden outside my studio in Scarborough. Happy 7!
