More details to Making a list

I spent most of the afternoon trying to decide if this was finished yet. I am toying with continuing the Christmas lights around the border but don't know if it will make the whole thing too busy.

I also am thinking of wallpaper patterns and patterns on the bed spread. What do you guys think?

Wow, your sketch is looking lovely and full of details! I like the lights around the window, but -- and this is a personal thing -- because I like simple backgrounds, I might leave them out and keep just the Christmas view: the snow covered tree, without the need for lights. As far as the wallpaper and the bedspread, I like using patterns, though again sometimes just suggested so as not to conflict with each other.
It's a delightful composition, Lyon!

I think there is already a lot of detail here and patterns might make it too busy. I think they would be fine if they were subtle and more like texture than defined patterns. I really like the point of view and the thoughfulness of the composition.

You've got so many great details everywhere! I agree with the others (and it seems like you're leaning that way as well) that a border and too much in the wall paper just might be . . . too much. She's got such a great expression. Good work!
