Christmas brings so much joy to my life. There’s special time with family and friends. And all of our special traditions! I love taking time to reflect on memories of Christmases past while making new memories. And of course, there is the true reason for the season. In the midst of all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I do my best to find quiet moments to prepare my heart for Jesus’ coming. 

Christmas is also FULL of inspiration for my art. I love painting Christmas scenes and creating Christmas crafts. And I truly love sharing them with you. It’s my hope that you’ll take some time to paint during this busy season!
