Okay so this is not a sketch, however I did actually frost and decorate all of these today…so that should totally count for Sketch Thursday. I spent the entire day today baking cookies and it was the best day ever. There is nothing more relaxing to me than baking. I could do it all day long (obviously). I have been working on final sketches the last few weeks for When Blue Met Egg, which has been going really well (mainly due to the fact that I have an amazing team I get to work with at Penguin), but it was so nice to take a break today and bake up a storm. I probably ate my weight’s worth in cookies and batter today, but it was totally worth the sugar headache. I highly recommend this form of relaxation.

This week’s Sketch Thursday is more of a project than a sketch. A lot of my friends have been talking about how expensive it’s going to be to buy a tree this holiday season. Personally, I think you just can’t beat a real live, full of pine scent tree, so the cost is worth it. However, I understand that in this economy shelling out $50-60 for something that is going to be thrown out in a month seems silly. So I decided I would try my hand at making my own tree out of cut paper, chalk, twine, and stamps. Although my tree isn’t nearly as large nor does it smell as nice as a real tree, it is very festive, and a great project to do with your family. I spent the first snowy afternoon of December watching Christmas movies and cutting out paper. Sometimes, you just can’t beat that.
