Winter Cheer

Snowman kid

Here's a cute something I drew today.  Now that the holiday madness is beginning to wind down, I'm turning some of my attention to working on some new pieces to add to my portfolio.  And I'm focusing on creating some work that is more ethnically diverse now too.  

It's hard for me to believe that Christmas is on Saturday!  I'm currently patting myself on the back for being much more prepared and organized this holiday season, so my stress was a minimum, at least as far as my little shop.  Everything ran incredibly smoothly and there were almost no meltdowns--unlike last year when my husband came home from work one day to find me sitting in my studio crying.  Yeah.  

Business is up and craziness is down, that's how I like it.  And I think a lot of it has to do with my 2010 mission to Work Smarter, Not Harder.  But I'll talk more about that next week.  

For now, I just want to wish everyone a lovely and safe holiday.  I'll be taking a small break from business-related stuff, although I now I'll still be up here in my studio working on new things--I just can't be expected to stop that, I love it too much.  Hopefully at some point I'll be baking some cookies and other sweets.  I'll certainly catch up on a bit of reading--I've just realized that I'm in the middle-ish of about 5 books right now!

Wishing you all the best,

Steph :)
