Hello everyone! December was an exceptionally busy one for Dreaming on a Star with 11 Christmas Markets!
But I managed to find some time to create an Advent doodle a day and here is the result. I challenged myself by using a limited palette and my influences were modern Scandi. I hope you like it!
I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas full of love and joy and the best of well wishes for a fantastic New Year!
Let’s bring more smiles and happiness into 2017. May all your dreams come true…♡

Hi everyone! I made a Family Tree for my Dad for Father’s Day.
Instead of including his children & grandchildren, I made it of his parents, his siblings and their children.
Dad is the youngest of 7 (a typical Irish Catholic family of the time!). He lost his Dad when he was 24. His sister died a few years ago and his other sister isn’t very well at the moment.
Unfortunately some of the cousins & in-laws are also no longer with us.
But this isn’t meant to be a sad post!
He was really happy with it. He spent hours looking at it!
I couldn’t believe it really!
I think as you get older, you comprehend what family actually means. The siblings that you climbed trees & shared rooms with are grown up and have families of their own.
You can see the endless cycle of life reaching back behind you and stretching out in front of you.
And you cherish the memories of those people that are no longer there but are all still a part of your family.
It was really lovely to give Dad a gift that meant so much to him. ♡
