Magical Monday: Cocoa Bear


Happy Monday! It’s time for this week’s all-art-no-chatter video…enjoy! If you can’t see the video below, click HERE to watch directly on YouTube.

And yes, for you perceptive folks: the first stamped sentiment was crooked. When I work at an angle to not bump the camera, I don’t always notice that stuff right away! lol. So that’s why I added a sentiment…and a heart. Colored in the same reds as his little hat.
