Mail, Illustration Friday

If you don't already have too much on your plate this week, then let me "send" you over to They Draw and Cook, where Nate and Salli, along with the FN Dish are hosting an illustrated holiday recipe exchange.

For a tropical twist on a cookie classic, I submitted my recipe for "Coconut Snowballs." Bite sized, buttery coconut shortbread dusted with powdered sugar might be the next best thing to being wrapped, stamped and mailed to the tropics for Christmas!

Hope you have time to bake a batch- Enjoy!

Phenomenon, Illustration Friday

At this time of the year, it would be difficult to ignore the phenomenon of the Star of Bethlehem, a bright star in the eastern sky which led the wise men to the birthplace of the baby Jesus. The miracle of His birth inspired the celebration of Christmas and generations of faithful followers who practice Christianity.

Tonight, a different type of celestial phenomenon will be occurring. The Geminid meteor shower should be visible under clear skies, sending long streaks and flashes of light among the stars throughout the late night and on through the early morning. Bundle up and take a peek, and enjoy a heavenly gift from above!

Prehistoric, Illustration Friday

Just starting to feel the crunch of the holiday season starting to bear down like a rock this week. If this happens to look familiar, the image was previously posted for "Subterranean," back in March. Still, I wanted to offer a submission for this week's prompt! Here's a little holiday repurposing...And hey, it's the thought that counts, right?
*Speaking of thoughts, as much fun as we have with the holiday season, there are those who might be facing challenging situations. Please remember them in your thoughts and prayers!
