Yes! I said it! Thanksgiving has come and gone, and now we can let our inner elves out of the boxes, bags and off the shelves!
As much as I love Thanksgiving, designing for Christmas is so much fun. So while others were scouring the shelves for black-Friday finds, I was siting at my desk, lying in my bed and stretched out at the table sketching up new freebies.
I did go out mostly to keep company, and bought myself a hoodie for under $5 (I love hoodies, but I go through them so fast- anyone else?! I’m rough at life, so I regularly rip them, destroy the zippers, stain the heck out of them etc. It’s not because I don’t appreciate or care about my stuff, it’s just that I go at everything in beast mode). Other than that I bought my son the usual pajama sets (he’s 9, and a big fan of PJs), a bag of truffles (not on sale) and that might be it. I don’t need a new TV, I don’t play video games and I have all the creative firepower I can handle for the time being.
At home I talked my partner into ordering Hulu for a year at $ 0.99/mo and bought a couple of long-sleeved character tees for my son from Target.com. No lines FTW!
All in all I think I came out well. I didn’t haul home a ton of full bags, but I also kept my budget 100% intact.
Today’s freebie is from one of those sketches I put together on Friday. I hope you guys like it. It’s 100% hand lettered and drawn by me. Don’t be a stranger- we have so many new designs on the way!
