Bonjour!

Welcome to le Lapin dans la Lune. My name is Delphine, I'm a French artist living in California, welcome!

This is the season!

It's the season, it's back! As you probably know, I usually post here tons of ideas for the holiday season, DIY, paper toys, etc. I do this since 2007, I think,and enjoy very much sharing with you!

The top picture is of an illustration I'll share with you tomorrow.

You can find my ideas of past years here :
The holidays with Delphine

 I have new, fun ideas this year, but before anything, I'd like to lay some ground rules.
I'm sorry I have to do that, so let's get it out of the way and make room for fun!

1.It's OK to link but not to repost my art.
2.It's ok to make gift from my art and ideas, for personal use only. This is my holiday gift to friends and family, that I share with you. It's not OK to sale my art, no, not even at the school fair. 
Contact me if you have any questions.
3.Yes it's free...but it's not yours. Don't sell it to a publisher (I'm flabbergasted I have to say it).  My art is copyrighted, and yes, often stolen. Please don't. I'll find out.
4. And last : don't send me an email for MORE because you find I'm lazy, or to ask me to make personalized art for free. To ask for more free stuff when I already give away so much is downright rude. It happens every year, and it f I get to many of these emails, I just stop posting, it's too depressing.  

5. Do contact me if you're a publisher interested in my art. Or have any question, really. I'm always happy to chat.

Voilà, it's out of the way : let's have fun!
If you're looking for an advent calendar, I didn't make one this year but you'll find several here:

And last but not least, that crazy time in 2008 when I decided to make a calendar with a tiny 3D house per day.  I think I was one of the first with the idea, 11 years ago, and yes did it take. Click on the picture, and then on the side arrows to go through the posts on December 08

See you tomorrow for more fun and a little card to print for your friends!
