meet little alpine fairy....

and her cute little arctic bunny alabaster! together they love to enjoy the wonders of winter....such as sweet little frozen fairy kisses! i mean why settle for butterfly kisses when you can nuzzle noses with such a cute little bunny....

one of two little winter fairies in the works. check back for alpine's twin sister siberia and her adorable little polar bear companion, snowball.

because i'm just a bit obsessed with winter...;)

welcome to peppermint bark park...

where the trees are made of candy canes and peppermint sticks and the mountains made of huge mounds of peppermint ice cream....topped with a sweet, swirly StarBright mint. speaking of StarBright, meet the park ranger himself, Mr. StarBright Snowman and his peppermint loving pals. together they make sure that Peppermint Bark Park stays sweet and frosty all year long. please be sure to watch your step when visiting, as one is sure to stumble upon a piece of bark or two. and then, just may be time for a yummy snack ;)
well, for all who do not know, i am crazy about candy canes, all things peppermint and of course, super cute snowmen. so here is my latest little creation inspired by all of those things. i actually wound up sketching it the night right before thanksgiving and have been painting it over the last couple of weeks, in between working on Christmas gifts.
below are some pictures of the painting in progress. hoping to finish it up (finally) tomorrow. then it will be FOR SALE as an ORIGINAL in my etsy shop. NO PRINTS will be sold.

love Pippa and Peppermint, the candy cane striped zebra :)

my holiday 2012 card featuring my alter ego (Pippa) and her adorable little Christmas companion, Peppermint.

since i have such a LOVE of candy canes and all things peppermint, i just couldn't resist coming up with this cute and festive little zebra.

proof that you don't have to be an elf....or a reindeer to deliver some good ole' fashioned holiday cheer!
