Artisans Hand, and packing up the scarves sold on etsy...whew! Thankfully the roads remain clear and we are not called into shoveling mode just yet. I hosted Art Group in my studio this week and showed them the cards I've been making. We passed them around then it was requested that we lay them all out. My artist friends were enthusiastic about them, so I said they could each select their favorite...hard decision but they all picked. A new member chose the one above asking me again if I really meant to let her have her choice. Personally it was a favorite, but I made them to let them be seasonal cards...to move on. This way I didn't have to know their addresses and put stamps on them, but I am getting some in the mail.
It's my son Ezra's birthday today. He's in CA now, turned 35! and will celebrate here with us in a few days. He's bringing his 2 cats to live in VT for a while, one with us here, and one with his brother while he goes off to Edinborough, then Cameroon to work and then back to Edinborough to live. Changes all the time. I hope I figure out how to get to Edinborough while he's there.....Meanwhile I'll be seeing Nutcracker tomorrow night with my son Jonah performing in it, can't believe I've never seen it.
Hope you are all finding some sparkle in your days, wrapping those special gifts, and being with loved ones in this next week. These dark days need love and laughter to brighten them. Soon it will be Solstice and light will expand with each day once again.
