Already the New Year

Even though tonight is New Years, I already feel like it has happened.

Why? I ate a real breakfast not consisting of just chocolate and cookies and listed a new item in my shop, which is open again!

The Winterwoods

I have plans for these two. The Winterwoods may return in other prints or items. They already have a back story in my head.

And I have a few pictures from my Christmas visit to my home town, Capreol. (In Ontario, Canada) Prepare to be cold.

Capreol, Ontario
Isn't it flat and that special kind of bright cold? Eep.
Cold light
My parents house all tucked into snow. We had just arrived and I wanted to take pics before getting my Christmas on.
Top of the snowbank
Had to climb it!
After the snowbank
I got a bit snowy. Good thing I had just bought boots when I got to town. Go kids boots!

Most of my pictures of actual Christmas are blurred with the excitement of opening gifts and lauging and family. Plus no one wants to be in their pjs on the internet. :-) Let me sum up my Christmas for you...

Eat, visit, eat, Christmas eve, gifts, snow, photos, garage doors, stuck cars, kitty litter, Finnish exchange students, wii battles, gift exchange games, cookies, sweaters, lost cell phones, chasing cats, Levack, thickest fog ever, gravy, shovelling, and cheesecake.

I have big plans for the New Year. Most of which include bat wings. :-)


  1. Are the Winterwoods northern pine trees from up north that decided to become enchanted into pretty human socialites with fancy clothes? They are so tall!

  2. Maybe its my yearning to be tall coming out in art...

    Happy New Year, Tara!

    Your drawing is awesome, it reminds me of Jack & Sally from TNBC :P The backdrop is a nice touch.

    Awesome that you climbed that snow pile, I would have wanted to do the same thing.

    Yay 2009!

  5. Im so glad I'm not the only one who eats chocolate and cookies for breakfast! Oh my gosh that's alot of snow, I would faint if we got that much here.

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year m'dear!!

  7. Also, I love the skirt. This world needs more skirts and less low rise jeans. I imagine she would look 553% classier with a long skirt, but I guess technically that is a long skirt. Probably the longest skirt Ms. Winterwood could find.

  8. That's a cool photo. The snow really brings out the red in your hair!
