Sampler Saturday: Dashing Through The Snow…

…In a one-Dialga open sleigh…

Elizabeth contributed the artwork for this year’s Christmas card:

I can only mail this one out to the people who will understand the funny; the rest will have to get regular store-bought cards this year.

I might frame my copy. It’s distilled essence of 12-year-old Elizabeth, a snapshot of her inner world right now, decked in Christmas cheer.

Happy Winter Holiday of Choice, Internet! May it be merry and bright!

    It’s too special! How cool and wonderfully childlike confident! I miss the fearless days of just drawing w/o obsessing over!

      I know, me too!

      Lately I’ve come to appreciate personal handmade gifts from loved ones even more than store-bought stuff, so I’m trying to get over my own self-critiquing and find meaningful gifts that I can make and give, to maybe help revive that old-fashioned custom.

      I think this means I’m officially old, though.


  3. The kid is some kind of genius, obviously.

    This is truly impressive. I am still figuring out how to put all the letters in “Elizabeth” in the right order.

      Hah, too funny! I know better though — you have mad writing talent!

      And thanks. :^) I think my girl is destined for greatness, but it’s possible that I am somewhat biased.
