The best advise my sister ever gave me, is immortalized below. I took the photo and added the words. Enjoy
Here are a couple of new prints.
Two photos from my “Cotton” series will also be available now (I couldn’t wait to February)
The following calandar is printable, right from my Etsy shop. No shipping & handling.
I love down time. I have been able to catch up with so many projects. For example, this weekend I have tackled my Etsy site. I have updated the existing photos, text, even added new prints and calendars to my Etsy site.
The following are just a few of the things available. Click here to see everything. E N J O Y ……
Today I am featuring two artists I met last Friday at the Hatch Art House Grand Opening.
Maria’s work is shown above. Her Etsy’s shop livelovemaria displays her paperwork to a really cool advantage….. and thank you for taking my photo at the opening.
Above Fen’s work whose Etsy beadflora shop is divine. I appreciate the patience she must have to complete her gorgeous beadwork projects. The first and last photos.
Thanks to both. Enjoy
Today’s featured writer is again my sister Kelli McCray. Her first article received such a good response and this article will not disappoint. I am going to convince her to contribute at least monthly.
Mommy always announced to everyone, “It’s not her fault she was born the week after Christmas”. “Christmas and her birthday will not be combined into one gift”. A Christmas celebration and then my birthday, which happens to fall on New Year’s Eve…Oooooo Joy-Joy!!!
Even at a young age, music has always been one of my passions. At 13, for Christmas I received a really cool, red stereo system with lights that danced to the music! For my birthday, I received a Stevie Wonder album, an Earth, Wind and Fire album and an Ojay’s album!
You couldn’t tell me NOTHING!
Now that I’m all grown up, or for most days anyway, what I wish to receive is sometimes not as tangible as a cool, red stereo system with dancing lights and the latest albums.
Most everyone now is caught up in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
Lights – Camera – Action – GO!
In the busyness of going, are you aware of what you’re doing? Is the Holiday Spirit with you? Along with Good Cheer, the Holiday Spirit is Love, Peace, Joy and Giving. These are the seeds. Sowing these seeds of the Holiday Spirit creates more of these gifts for you to receive. Awareness is a key to unlock the flow. The form in which it returns to you is sometimes unknown, but that’s really not important, only that it does.
Never leave home without it – the Holiday Spirit that is. What you give out comes back, as long as you remain open to receive. Your cup will run over and you will be as elated as I was when I received my cool, red stereo system with dancing lights and the latest albums.
Peace, Love and Many Unexpected Blessings, Kelli
The Hatch Grand Opening went very well I would even say it was fantastic. I think there was a good turn-out and the cash register (a figure of speech) seemed to be constantly ringing, a number of my friends dropped by and of course the highlight of my evening was when one of my pictures was purchased. NOTE: Do not were new boots when you are going to be standing for a few hours.
The first photo is me next to my artwork. (I know. I said that I would rarely post my photo. Alas…) The next photo is of the gallery owner, Tammy, taking my picture off the wall to sell and the last are crowd photos.
What a good feeling it is to know that at this moment someone is enjoying my art work. If you enjoy making other people happy (and want to avoid the malls this season) don’t fight the feeling just click on my Etsy link and spread the joy.
