sunday sketches :: merry christmas


We got a little snow last night so it has really put me in the Christmas spirit.

I wrapped presents.

I may even do some baking today. I’ve been putting it off as long as I can. I tend to bake too early. Taste what I’ve baked…until they are nearly gone. Then have to start all over again! I have zero willpower.

At our house, we don’t put up a large Christmas tree. It wouldn’t last…much like this drawing! I do have 3 small trees that I keep on the hall table. They have homemade ornaments on them that I don’t care if they get destroyed. The day before yesterday, I picked up one of the trees three times … somebody (Lily, I’m sure) kept knocking it off the table.

I’m sure it was an accident. She always looks so innocent!


This might be my last post for the year. It’s going to be busy around here for the next few weeks. So I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2017. See you after the new year.


Sharing with Sunday Sketches. Stop by and take a look at Alexandra’s Advent illustrations. They are adorable!

  1. Not quite sure how I found you today but glad I did and now I'm a follower :)
    Love your artwork - that's really lovely.
    Smiled about your 3 trees and having to pick up one tree many times... glad we have no animals as we have 5 trees up.. 2 large (1 traditional and 1 Steampunk themed) plus 3 mini ones :)
    Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year... Gill :)

  8. I love your Christmas illustration, Sue! This is the first year that we have only put up a small tabletop tree but I love it. I had to smile at that fact that one of your trees keeps getting knocked down. hehe

  9. My daughter's tree looks a lot like yours, but in her case it's the kids taking the ornaments off! :D
