Happy New Year!

As a new year approaches us all,
I thought I would share this little snippet of this centre piece I created for our table.
This simple arrangement has stolen my heart
and brought me so much pleasure.
It combines my love for vintage with simple white candles
which has helped brighten the early darkness that arrives during this season.
It somehow added a certain calmness to such a busy time
and I find it so incredible how such a simple thing can make such a big difference.
Of course, I could not help but add a little, sweet illustration that sits
on a piece of birch log that I collected years ago from our family cottage.

I love that the penguin is in flight.
Happy and Joyful!

Very much how I feel at this moment as I anticipate this coming year!

I want to take this moment to thank all of you for
taking time visit my work here and for being part of my journey.
I hope you have found that my illustrations bring a little joy to your day
and a smile to your heart!
Your kindness and support is what keeps me creating
and I certainly never quiet feel that I express this well enough.

I am extremely grateful.

I am looking forward to 2018 and
I have such hopes for my art and to create some new
things that have been seedlings in my heart for sometime.

I hope I find a bit of calmness each and everyday.

But, most of all I hope that 2018 brings
joy, love, kindness and peace to you and your families
and to everyone around the world.

Happy New Year!

i feel much like this bunny at the moment...
it is beginning to feel like Christmas with one
son arriving home and the other arriving tomorrow.
it makes this mother's heart so happy!

wishing you all a safe, healthy and happy holiday season!
