Making mince pies for Christmas was the subject of this illo I did for this month's issue of Ideal Home magazine. Mince pies are a tradition in most British homes. Coming from a Danish family I've never made them, but I love the idea of topping the mini pies with a star shaped crust!

This illustration can be seen in this month's issue of M Magazine, on newsstands now! It's for their monthly LOL Stories feature. A reader wrote in to tell of her humiliation when she went to the mall and her mom forced her to sit on Santa's lap – and her crush happened to walk by at the same time!

Today you can see my new illustrated recipe on TheyDraw&Cook.com! It's for REAL cranberry sauce, not from a can. I usually don't like REAL cranberry sauce but I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving and it is so good!

I started wrapping gifts last night. I don't think I would have started so early (to me December 3rd is early!) if the tree wasn't standing there looking so beautiful and sparkly just begging for gifts to be under it's boughs! One of the papers I used is black with silver snowflakes. It looked so pretty in the store, but truth be told, now that it's under the tree I don't think I'd choose a black paper again. Not festive!
The above illustration is featured in this month's issue of Ideal Home magazine. Now they are festive! I also submitted it for this week's Illustration Friday topic of "Stretch" because she's stretching out the ribbon. But I don't know, that may be a stretch. :)
