I’m beginning my YouTube sabbatical today, which, frankly, isn’t a 100% sabbatical, but I’m going with it anyhow….I’m still posting my Bible journaling videos weekly (see the end of this post), and I have a couple things scheduled along with some guest videos. BUT – I’m going to do something new here and call it the 25 Creations of Christmas! The first 12 days will be Copic-colored tags, and the rest of the month will be my crazy Copic cards…and giveaways all month! (Read on for details!)

Today’s tag

Ellen Hutson’s doing something really fun this year – she has a yearly tag series, but this year, they’re MUSIC themed! I challenged myself to make a tag for each day…and I’m a huge Christmas music buff, so I’ll be sharing a video of the song too in case you need some holiday cheer to spur on your own Christmas spirit!

Today’s chosen song is a good old favorite – Rudolph! The Gene Autry version, IMHO, is the absolute best. Contrarians, you’re just wrong, LOL! I wish YouTube had video of him singing it, but enjoy the music at least:

For my tag, I used the Holiday Characters set, which actually has only the head – so I drew in a realllllllly long neck, and added on some spots, and of course (ha) snow, and then added a Red Droplet for the nose! The tag is manually trimmed to fit the image.


Just a quick reminder -all my adult classes are still on sale through Monday night for 15% off (5% of your class fee will go to World Central Kitchen too!), just use the coupon code posted at the top of the site – and on Tuesday, you get 5% off and World Central Kitchen gets the 15%. THANK YOU to all who have left comments that you’re waiting til Tuesday to shop – it warms my heart!


On some of my 25 posts on this blog all month, there will be GIVEAWAYS! I have 6 packs of stamps and dies to send out to make your Christmas more merry – be sure to answer the question posed to qualify to win!

PLUS!!!! Watch my social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) during December as well, because only on those, I’m going to announce a few “flash” sales on particular classes. Huge discounts that’ll only last a few hours. Don’t miss them!
