Salt and Pepper Shakers Again

I hadn't done this style salt shakers yet. They weren't exciting  -  just a little different than any in my "collection".

We went to the book store before dinner, and I found a book for my husband for Christmas.  When I told the girl at the counter that this was my first Christmas gift purchase, she acted shocked.  Come on - I was really pleased to be getting at it. Don't judge me.

Our Christmas tree is up!  The lights are on.  The cat has climbed it a couple of times. We are officially into the season.  This week we have a Christmas event with my husband's library board members, and two grade school concerts - among everyday things that at times can seem overwhelming. It's okay  -  'tis the season to be jolly  -  and we are!

How are your Christmas plans coming?  Are you taking a few minutes to sketch some of your activities, ingredients, illustrate your gift list?

Cathrine I love your your salt and pepper shakers and bowl of salad! I like the light reflective look to your salt and pepper shakers the thin black sketch lines really make your images pop.
I just started my Christmas shopping around the same time you did so don't feel bad. Some how it all gets done and comes together. I had to laugh about your cat climbing your tree, when we had our cat I couldn't keep her out of our Christmas tree, it was crazy.
