Well, the next bird houses are on the table waiting for paint - they look good without - so I'm confident they will sell quickly as Chicken lover Christmas Gifts! Tom has done quite well with who he has donated $$$ to to date! Bravo. I'm happy to help.
I’ve been busy creating Christmas gifts & making Christmas cards - I made one card that had me buckled over in laughter (long story - for another day) & had me thinking about a surprise ‘Hero’ of 2020 - more later. So, making cards makes me feel good.. when I’m reading about a woman who was legally assisted to die (in Canada) -because she did not want to endure another lock down alone. Let alone Christmas.. Tis the season.
I’m painting gifts - that keeps me thinking about the recipient(s) - whom I must care for or I would not be panting gifts, I can’t ‘fake it’ - not even painting. It’s always a joy… so I’ll keep busy painting gifts for a few I enjoy thinking about this Christmas. I am thinking about SO MANY this Christmas in particular - all around the world I have friends- how blessed is that - and not just one’s I’ve made on social media - real humans - I’ve been blessed with meeting - when we could meet and hug, snuggle, smooch.. laugh with, wink at… when we could. With out feeling guilty about it.
I’m confident some will feel it - across the miles… My love for them.
I hope everyone is focusing on themselves and what keeps us smiling.. if only on the inside for now - mask free. Alcohol is a depressant - please remember this - me too.
Shop local!!! Your neighbour needs it more than Jeff Bezos - holy cow.. don’t get me started. There is a song on Canoe Fm 100.9 (love it) - “Don’t get me started…” a song I know many are singing this year. Speaking of- Canoe- they really promote Indigenous MUSIC & it’s a terrific idea to introduce someone to Canadian artists - buy a CD - support a Canadian band - not preforming due to the pandemic.
I bought Canadian & locally and artisan including the terrific paddles from the Halliburton Forest! Time to get back painting those paddles! Time to get back painting and watch some Christmas movie to stimulate painting ideas- even if, not in the 'jolliest' mood.
