Holiday Card and Timelapse Drawing

Christmas Card Colored Happy holidays and almost Solstice!  I am so looking forward to the days beginning to lengthen again after Monday, aren't you? I love a cozy evening full of cuddling and hot tea as much as the next knitter, but when the sun is beginning its descent around 2pm, things have gotten a bit out of hand.  And let's be real, there's a minimal amount of cuddling and a large amount of chasing a toddler around the house, trying to prevent her from undoing the small amount of cleaning I can accomplish at 36 weeks pregnant.  I'm tired.

If I were a smart woman, I would have napped today while my toddler slept. Instead, I drew this Christmas card and recorded the process in my first "timelapse" video!  I've learned a few things by trial and error and hope that the next time I give this a try the quality will be a bit better.  Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy this little card and video I put together.

Remember to take some time for yourself and your family this holiday season.  December has a way of finding its way away from even the most careful planners.  If you need an excuse to sit down and take it easy, I can't recommend coloring enough. I've got two free coloring pages for download on Gumroad for the next month. Go take a look, print a page or two, and sit down for some serious relaxation.

Happy making!
