holiday time

So I have begun making holiday things. I must say it feels very weird. I am savoring all the bits of fall that I love, and then painting images of snowflakes and Christmas trees... it just feels wrong. But, each year when I wait until the holiday spirit prompts me to make holiday goods it is too late to sell them. So even though it would have been practical to start this endeavor in the summer I am quite proud of myself for not waiting until Thanksgiving. I went out to do my errands the day after Halloween and was inundated with all the stores busting out the holiday stuff already. Maybe it is just me, but I find it disconcerting. So on that note, I am sharing an image I created to make ornaments from. One of the not-so-Christmasy ones. I am sure I will show you them all at some point, but not yet. I am still enjoying the Halloween-y-ness around here...

Thank you for creating beautiful art to express the season. I wish I could be with you to play Nanci and patty and cover the floor with materials to illustrate the soul. So good to hug you and that belly of yours this weekend. Xo jb
