Welcome to the Christmas Fair. I thought my sketchbook would be the perfect place to show you one of the things I made for the fair...
A Santa Hanger for Christmas. After designing Santa and printing him on soft canvas, I added a bit of Vintage glass glitter, ribbon, bells and a cute mini hanger. The scalloped edged hand-painted chipboard measures 4 x 5 1/2 inches.
Both styles of my Christmas creations have been added to my Etsy shop . You can use the Santa Hanger for a Christmas ornament, Merry Christmas decoration, the perfect hostess gift or add him to your favorite garland.
On the back I have put a small envelope with a gift card tucked inside. I thought this would make a lovely little card if you are giving it as a gift, or a cute bit of eye candy for the back.
The Santa hangers are designed with Santa wearing either a pink coat or a red one.

My new love in art is digital art enhancing my sketches and paintngs
This time of year is so inspiring, with pumpkins, fall leaves and Halloween on the horizon.
When my girls were little I adored taking them trick or treating, later on my husband would take them out, as I manned the fort handing out candy. Over the years I have tucked away all the memories to sketch and paint whenever the mood fancies.

The Precious Cornerstone
So this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
"See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who trusts will never be dismayed.
Bible Verse of The Week group.
I posted a piece on The Living Stone, our chief Cornerstone on my devotional.
- Karen's Sketchbook
- I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
