The temperature took a dive in Chicago this week, and my holiday spirit kicked into high gear. This meant more snuggling by the fire, more gift-brainstorming, and more cookie-scarfing than I’m used to. It also means that I’ve been glued to my computer screen dreaming up sweet little paper products for the holidays.

And now, a small gift for you…

Since many of us want to make our dollars stretch a little farther this holiday season, making our own holiday cards at home seems like a pretty good place to start. Here are two wintery designs that you can print out at home. Just click on the image to download the printer-ready pdf!

Also, a super quick note about my upcoming holiday deadlines.

I’ve finally nailed down the last days I can take various orders to ensure everything is at your house by December 25. Here’s how it shakes out:
11/29 – Last day to order paintings or portraits until 2012
12/2 – Last day to order pillows until 2012
12/6 – Last day to order fine art prints until 2012 (coming soon)
12/10 – Last day to order mailed (instead of print-at-home) gift certificates

Stay toasty this week!

Thanks for your interest in my paintings! I'll be on maternity leave during the spring of 2016. If you're interesting in knowing when I'm back to accepting commissions, just shoot me a note, and I'll add you to my list!
