Redrew an oldie. So, at least I wasn’t completely lazy – and by lazy I mean, holiday overwhelmingness.

Looks like we have a few masochists joining HoHoDooDa this year. Below are the names and links of said participants (at least any who have left their name and link to where they are posting their doodles, in the comments here.) If I’ve missed anyone or your link is not working or any other proof of my heinous lack of organizational skills, please let me know and I’ll do my best to fix it.

Let’s get doodling!

advent calendar – day 1

December 1, 2009

Welcome to my Advent Calendar, everyone!

Although there are many different, wonderful Winter Festivals to celebrate, explore and embrace, my family celebrates Christmas.

A tradition that has always captured my imagination as a child and still does to this day, is the Advent Calendar.  Originally more of a religious article, the Advent Calendar has, in recent years, evolved into a countdown to Christmas Eve for children… of all ages… including me, hee heeee!!!

Sooooo, in keeping with the holiday spirit and in an effort to push myself to draw every day, I’ve decided to post one calendar entry every day until Christmas. That would be 24 posts… count ’em… 24…!

Can she do it? Stop by daily and see… and be sure to click the image to “open” the flap and see what’s inside.

Anywho, my bunny friend here is entangled in Christmas lights in order to squeeze this image into an Illustration Friday post as well. Eh? Eh? Always thinking, right?

So, have a wonderful holiday season, y’all!

have yourself a…

…Merry Little Chrismahannakwanza!

Whatever holiday you celebrate or choose not to celebrate this winter, I hope it’s the happiest ever!!

Christmas is the holiday Tom and I both grew up with and still enjoy with gusto, although I’d never turn down an invitation or opportunity to participate in a Hannukah, Kwanza or any other holiday celebration. The more opportunities to hang out with friends, eat (food you would never dream of eating the rest of the year due to sheer terror of heart failure,) or light candles, the better!

For us Christmassy types, many towns in the U.S. have what they call Candy Cane Lane, or a Candy Cane Lane-like street, where every blade of grass on every lawn of every house is blinking, strobing or sparkling with copious amounts of holiday lights and decorations. However, in Valencia, CA the entire town is pretty much a Candy Cane Lane.

Yes folks, Christmas threw up on our town.

What we lack in the beauty and wonder of snowfall, we more than make up with a king’s ransom of an and electric bill and Home Depot receipt.

Tom and I bring up the rear with a token strand of red lights tacked lovingly across the front of our house. We tell ourselves we’re trying to be green, but really, we’re just too lazy busy. Why, we’ve got “Daily Show” reruns to watch.

But you know, as excessive as all the lights, giant blow up snowglobes, and creepy animated santas are, there’s nothing Tom and I like better than taking a detour on the way home from work to gawk at the handiwork of our zealous neighbors.

It’s the closest thing to tradition we have in our suburban town, and we’ve grown to love it.
