Sunday Sketches - Let's Work Together

We have been busy around my house working on decorating the Christmas tree, writing our Christmas cards and preparing cookies for holiday parties and cookie exchanges...it's a lot of fun, but it's more fun having my 2 girls along side of me to help! Thanks girls!

They inspired this sketch here that I am sharing with my friends over at Sunday Sketches today!
See you there!

Sounds busy and fun! I have my shopping done and that is about it. No tree yet! Figure I must go on an illustration hiatus to get ready for the big day! Love your image as usual, cute with great movement. I love the socks and tiny little feet.

I would like to be part of a cookie exchange... of course I make rubbish cookies and would have to resort to pretending bought ones are mine... but to get all those wonderful cookies in return would be great...fantastic illustration by the way... but now I think I want cookies for breakfast...xx

Very sweet! I love those energetic poses!

Wanda said...

This is a darling sketch..and having three daughters I certainly understand how much help they can be at Christmas time...

Next week I'll be making my English Toffee...but all the daughters are married and busy with their own families, so I'll be alone in my kitchen with my Christmas Music...that's nice too.

I always love the expressions in your work..

Tammie said...

Heather,
your art is so charming and this one is wonderful! wishing you a sweet week.

Tammie said...

oh, and those little curling feet are cute as can be. I bought a stocking ornament for the tree the other night and the boot/stocking curled up like that, more like an elf shoe... love it.

Betsy said...

haha...I love this! Those candy cane socks and elf shoes are just too cute!

Tracey Potter said...

Oh this is cute Heather. Sounds like lots of yummy things are happening around your home. "A job worth doing is worth doing together" is something kids really believe in especially when it comes to tidying up :)

Marlene said...

Hi Heather, Great sketch. I have missed you but guess I just got too busy going place with my DH to try and keep up. I hope to be back to blogging after the holiday. I have finally received the deck of cards created by ACEO artists if you are still interested in a deck. You can email me at lazyhawk@juno.com and let me know. Have a wonderful Christmas.

Sophia said...

How cute!! Although I'm not sure there would have been any gingerbread dough left for a gingerbread man to dance with me!! hahaha :)

Elizabeth Rose Stanton said...

Such a happy couple! Cute, cute drawing! Have a great Christmas!

michele said...

Hi Heather, I'm a little late to your cookie exchange here, but I hope it was as fun as these holiday friends suggest- And also just a wee bit envious that you have two girls to help out with the baking! Hope your Christmas season is filled with joyful celebration! :o)
