A Note from the Illustrator
Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year! Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved every part of it: the sweet smells of cinnamon and pine needles, hot apple cider boiling on the stove, helping my mom unwrap all the ornaments and decorate our tree, drinking hot cocoa and watching lights twinkle while singing Christmas carolsand the list could go on!
One of my favorite family traditions was creating art together during Christmas. Whether it was making ornaments with homemade play dough, painting wooden rocking horses, or cutting snowflakes out of paper, it was always a special time with family as we celebrated the joy of the season.
It's my hope as you spend time in these pages that you will experience that same joy of Christmasthat you will relax, have fun, and be renewed as you create; and most importantly, that you will be reminded of the true reason we celebrate this special dayour Savior and True Hope coming into the world to save us! Thank you for letting me share my art with you, and may you have a blessed and merry Christmas!
