When it comes to my own art work, I’ve done a VERY poor job of planning. After all, here we are in mid-November and I’m still painting lilacs, roses and daisies! I think some of it comes from living alone. Well, BESIDES Skip! No one reminded me as Valentines Day came and went. I completely neglected Memorial Day. Forgot the 4th of July. If it weren’t for few hundred Facebook friends, I’d have missed my birthday!. I would have forgotten about Thanksgiving except my neighbor asked the other day, “What are you doing for the holiday?”
In hindsight, what I should have been doing this summer (besides running back and forth to doctors and such), was I should have been working and creating for the winter months. Several of my clients and friends have asked, if I had any designs planned for the Christmas season. I DID have a couple in the works, but with the right-arm handicap, I know they won’t be done.
As you know, I am a huge advocate of the personal, hand-written letter. And, even though they’re loosing money every day that passes, I’m a big fan of the US Mail. I DO promote keeping in touch with one another!
Sooooo… For my “fans” who are otherwise occupied with their jobs, their families, cooking supper and the normal hustle and bustle of life – I’ve done some holiday “shopping” for you! I’ve chosen vintage designs, modern designs, whimsical designs. There are horses, snowflakes, cats, deer, barns, bears, trees, lakes, lights, stars. There are old Santas, new Santas, candy canes and misletoe. There are even a couple of Mickey Mouse holiday stamps from Disney! My choices are in no particular order, so you’ll have to scroll through them. I HOPE out of the 50 or so Holiday Postage Stamps I found, there are one or two that you like! As in the past, all you have to do, is “click” on your favorite and you’ll be taken directly to that particular stamp.
And so there you have it my friends! Make it a point this year, to blow the dust off of that address book. Drop a note to that long-lost-cousin, the air-conditioner repair man, a former teacher or classmate, the folks at your local grocery, your insurance agent, your childs teacher and yes, perhaps even that new friend you met on Facebook! Isn’t is exciting, just how many people you have the ability to provide a smile to, today? Have fun and pass along a hearty “Hello” to your friends and family, from Skip and I!!
PS If you message me your address, I GUARANTEE you’ll receive a holiday note from Skip and I!!!
