Happy Sketching

Scavenger Hunt 613 posted by Ai, in Thailand, had "make you smile, happy" on the list.
When we put up the Christmas tree, I put a little llama on the tree near a nativity scene from Bolivia.  I think we got the llama at Walmart or HEB.  It is so cute.    I was thinking how happy it made me with such good memories.  For decoration we have a new one from Jennie this year, a nutcracker from the lottery.

Number 2, make you smile/happy - the stuffed llama and reed nativity remembering good thoughts of Bolivia.  Sketched with Prismacolor pens and colored pencils.  I will sketch the llama again with pastels, would be nice.

Number 3, decoration - the ornament from the lottery for this year.  Very cute, too.  Thanks, Jennie ....and Brandon.

And the photos:

Love the cute and colorful llama...and glad it brings back nice memories. I love all the ornaments on our tree. So many of them bring back special memories of people or places.

Joan, thank you. Our ornaments all tell stories, too. I've seen some of yours that you have sketched. So interesting and much fun! Have fun this year.
