Merry Christmas! (With a Coupon, Recommendations, and GeneralWell-Wishing)

Joy to the world - the Savior reigns! 

I painted this little sign to hang specifically for a Christmas party we're having, but my mom seems to want to keep it permanently. No problem with me! 
I may start painting little illustrations like this regularly. I love how it turned out! 

Also, because it's Christmas (and in case you want to spend any Etsy giftcards or extra $ you may have received), everything in my shop is 20% off from today until Wednesday, December 31st! Use coupon code holiday20 and treat yourself (or a friend) to something special!
To finish up this post of goodwill, I wanted to link out to a few new fellow creatives I've discovered. 
1. Jaycie Hull. Love love love her illustrations and her Instagram. Go check out her blog and follow her @jaycieali! She makes and posts beautiful things, though not often enough!
2. Madison Steward. A girl after my own heart - old-fashioned, sweet, creative, and apparently a future librarian! Her Etsy shop is on vacation, but you can find her on Instagram @madisonsteward. 
3. Emily McDowell. She's running her own business and is an extremely talented illustrator and designer. Visit her website at
