Hads is back with how to draw a Christmas tree! She was feeling a little bad that I left her out of the last couple videos, what a mean dad! So, I had to do this next one with her. She did an awesome job too.

      Hey Viv!

      I’m so glad the videos are helpful. I know what you mean though, my little Hads gets frustrated often and I need to reassure her a lot. Feel free to send me her drawings, and I’ll put it up in our gallery. You can then show her that we thought she did such a good job we posted it :)

    I came across your site by sheer accident and immediately fell in love with it! I have two girls; the oldest one (5) loves drawing and found the step-by-step instructions so easy to follow and she was very proud of her creations. I have to admit, I love to draw too and use your instructions to create masterpieces ;) Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with us.
