Sunday Somethings: A Happy Holiday

Happy holidays everyone! I hope you had a Merry Christmas, and if you celebrate something else I hope that too was wonderful! My holidays are always super busy - I actually still have one last holiday dinner with more extended family tonight, wooee. It's been a really wonderful time of year, filled with lots of family and love and hugs and gratefulness. I for one got teary-eyed a few times because I felt so fortunate and thankful to be surrounded by such loving and generous people.

A few somethings from this Christmas:
1. Christmas morning with my dad, siblings, sister's boyfriend, and step mum's family. Santa brought us all funny socks in our stockings!

2. My mum got me a beautiful tapestry from a fair trade store, it's made in Bangladesh and I'm so in love with it!

3. A few weeks ago I had to get a new phone (bad timing - most expensive time of year, ahh!) and I ended up getting the Samsung Galaxy Note, which comes with a stylus and pressure sensitivity and so I've been drawing and drawing and drawing on it, it's the perfect phone for an illustrator! This (slightly drunk-looking) Santa is one of the doodles I did.

4. On the way home from a concert downtown, we passed by this street of giant blow-up Santas in a cab. We vowed to go back and take a walk down Santa Claus Lane. A date on Santa Claus Lane! We were disappointed by this year's lack of snow, but I am so glad we went anyway before they took them all down. It was so bizarre and eerie, but also really fun!

How were your holidays? Any little holiday somethings you'd like to share?



  1. Merry Christmas! :) I love your socks, your tapestry, your drunken Santa, and Santa Claus Lane - what a lovely post. Sending you lots of hugs. My holidays were great! It was just the four of us, and now my mom and I are in Pittsburgh with my grandmother to see her side of the family. I hope you are still enjoying your new phone :)

    1. Thank you Jenna! That sounds lovely, sometimes the intimate family gatherings are the best :)
