Let's peel back these layers!

juliannlaw Here is a closeup of the endpapers in my debut picture book, THE WORKD’S LONGEST SOCK. I work digitally in Adobe Photoshop but the program doesn’t do it all for me! I knit all the pixels by hand! Haha! I do have things I do to help me work quickly and efficiently, though, like using layers. Here you get to see me take off those layers one by one till we are back at nothing but a background. The World's Longest Sock is now available on  Amazon ,  Barnes and Noble ,  Target , or wherever you  buy books !

a race against time

For the most part, we're ready.

The Christmas tree is up.

Lucy helped with some of the ornaments.
Little gingerbread village has survived the snackers.

Stockings are hung by the fireplace with care. (This was a project three years in the making! I've had the fabric forever.)
Christmas cards are in the mail. (Photography by Katherine Wallin, design from minted.com, love their skinny labels!)

Neighbor gifts have been delivered. (Recipe for peppermint bark from allrecipes.com)

Teacher gifts have been given. (Marble magnets "how-to" on not martha.)
The one thing left on my list is to finish Emmie's quilt.

This is how it looked in October.

This is how it looked in November.

This is how it looked yesterday.

It is not a hard quilt. It has just taken the back burner, but no longer! I intend to give it to my baby daughter on Christmas and it SHALL be finished. That will be my greatest accomplishment this month.

Merry Christmas to all, especially to all you out there pulling all-nighters on those last few projects!
