the 12 Toys of Christmas

Hello Friends and Readers,

I am so excited to present to you, my personal passion project with which I will wrap up 2019!

A couple of weeks ago, it occurred to me to explore the Christmas story, find objects that would pass for Christmas tree decorations and explore them deeper.

Christmas Toys?

Yes! I know you probably haven’t thought twice about the toys and ornaments you mount on your Christmas tree.

In the days leading to Christmas, I will share my list of the 12 toys I came up with. To add an interesting twist, I will present them as the icons on a deck of playing cards.

I wish that you will follow my journey and as you enjoy my writing and illustrations, my hope is that, somewhere along this playful but meaningful exploration of mine, you will find meaning and hope in what they represent.

I invite you to explore with me, the 12 Toys of Christmas.
