Out with the old & in with the new as they say.
Just who is ‘they’ anyway? They is always changing.
Anyway, random thoughts aside, let’s frolic along toward the wonder that is The Holiday Collection now moving over to CardCastles. This is the first entry to move over there today. It’s going to serve as part of the greeting cards section of this collection.
The Holiday Collection was a hit when I first opened the Snapping Turtle gallery. Now that it’s all moving here to my main site, you can reach every new addition here as it’s added. We add festive pieces this time of year, but we add all sorts of holidays all year long, and even take requests for custom messages.
If you’re feeling nostalgic and want to visit the (filled) old Holiday Collection at the old gallery, give it one last look here before it closes.
Are you already getting ready for the holiday season? What holidays do you celebrate?
This weekend while I made a new folder for a project that’s closing and another for upcoming holiday greetings and other things. We had a little November night wind storm. Shortly after it began to rain. With the quiet in the house and the pitter-patter outside, it was the perfect conditions to work in, and some of it inspired this new addition.
Are you in planning mode yet for the new year? Do tell. You know I love a good coffee chat. 🙂
The northeast region got blasted this weekend with some icy winds making it seem like the dead of winter when it’s really still fall. We’ve got a bunch of important milestones coming up for our son in his schooling. There are some changes going on in just about every aspect of my life. They are achy changes, but changes I am willing to accept. Some of this overdose of new I’m even starting to like.
This character concept that almost didn’t happen due to a busy schedule and some technical issues, was inspired by a busted mouse. No not an actual little furry guy, don’t worry. Nope, it was a busted mouse that I very much need in order to create any illustration at all. We had to replace it in order for me to be able to keep working, even in the midst of other family obligations.
I’m going to let my son name him. I think this little mouse would be cute for holiday greetings as well. He may make more appearances.
Has anything broken on you lately? Did you make the best of it?
There hasn’t been many photo snaps here in the clouds lately. This weekend I aimed to change that. The perfect moment somehow drifted my way while my son and I were chatting about the noticeable chill in the air that came with November rolling its way in.
With last month being so unseasonably warm for October, we embraced this little bit of crisp with open arms. The changeover signals some events and adventures that will be happening for us as the year closes out.
