HOLIDAY 2016 RELEASE: Santa's Reindeer and Holiday Houses with Kelly

Hello, and welcome back! Are you excited? Our Holiday 2016 Collection will be available for purchase tomorrow, October 5, 2016. If you are just joining us, be sure to check out Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.

Are you in love with what you've seen so far? I know I sure am. I'm pretty sure when I saw the adorable little images in Holiday Houses my neighbor's two streets away heard my shrieks of joy!

I really loved the idea of the reindeer from Santa's Reindeer flying over a village of tiny houses in the middle of the night. So with the magic or watercolor and Copic markers I was able to make it happen.

You can watch it come to life in the video below.

Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube

There is something that is just so cool about backlighting don't you think?

I already know I'm going to be using these little houses a ton so prepare yourself for cuteness overload!

Be sure to come back tomorrow. We still have a lot of new stuff to show you and Dawn will be here with the whole shebang!
