Seasonal Creations

It's been a while since I updated here- but I am hoping to be back on track soon :) Meantime, here are some recent works ;)

I love these seasonal oranges- back in England they were a little easier to get than they are over here- I remember having them in my packed lunch for school as a child :)

These are some of the presents from the advent bags I drew below.
My simple, but effective travel kit- pens, moleskine and watercolour pencils. I just added a water brush to the set :)

Everyday Matters (I heard a J.C. Penny's advert say that BTW)- in this case, things from the bathroom ;) drawn in situ, so there is an odd angle to them.
Some of our ornaments- I knitted the gingerbread man :)

DD and I went to see the Nutcracker ballet this year. Here is the ticket and a nutcracker :)
At the last minute, we decided on handmade cards. Here are the three designs I painted and scanned. I printed them and glued each to a card. I kept the originals for this spread :)


  1. What a beautiful collection of holiday pages...very delightful and joyous! :)

  2. Merry Christmas and happy new year! I've enjoyed looking at your blog this year!

  3. Rachel -these are awesome! You've been busy! Love the nutcracker sketch, that's fabulous! Marva

  4. LOVE the Christmas drawings! Also, we have clementines in the stores here. We all love them and I have to watch Joseph or he'll eat them all up.
