Available for purchase at my etsy shop:

The ghostly tree, the flickering candle flames, and the owl with the piercing gaze emerge from a snow-struck landscape chased by roiling storm clouds. What message have they for you on this darkening winter's night?

EDIT 10/05/12: OMG A DD and soooo many faves!!! Thank you all so much!

Just a little something for the winter hols. Someone pointed out to me that I have a lot of stuff that's fall-ish and springy, but not a whole lot that has the mood of winter.

This is now available as a notecard/greeting card! Head on over to my etsy shop and check it out!
