Countdown Interruption

I interrupt our Advent Calendar flow to let everyone know that my little Charlie Brown Christmas tree is up! It was lopped down a few nights ago and yesterday I rigged it up so it wouldn’t fall over, and today I took some time to untangle my lights (see December 12!) and pulled out the lightest weight decorations I have :-) A few presents to make the space looked lived in. It’s feeling pretty cozy in here, and about a million years away from what I thought my life was going to look like in December of 2017.

THANK YOU to everyone who has clicked on the Support Button and to those who have taken the time to let me know how much they enjoy the daily art :-) I’ll try and keep up with it into the New Year, and am having thoughts of calendars and a book and, well, who knows what else!

Take good care, everyone!

December 20th... and I don't have a tree yet... But here's T is for Tinsel!

I’m not even sure what tinsel is made of? All I know is that it is a form of glitter. It gets everywhere. It sticks to everything. And when I try to play nice and use one strand at a time I inevitably get bored and end up just throwing handfuls of it at the tree…

And speaking of trees… I don’t have one yet! Yikes. Maybe this weekend. And it will be a New Years tree. And that’s just fine. Hope all is well with you folks out there!

Good Morning!

Happy December 13th, and even though it’s M for Mistletoe Day, how about making it a “why not?” in general sort of day? Why not eat the last cookie? Why not take an extra 5 minutes at lunch time? Why not give your honey a smooch when they least expect it? Why not say Yes to your friend inviting you over this evening? Or why not stay in and cozy if that’s what you want to do! Enjoy the day!

Something nice and something to consider...

Dear Person, I could read your last name on the envelope, and I looked to see if there was anyone who had placed an order I had missed… I didn’t see anything, so I can only thank you for your kind support...

This was timely, as I had been considering a support button, or something along those lines, if people were enjoying my third Advent calendar and wanted to send a little something to me. I have mixed feelings about it, because I do enjoy making these drawings and simply sharing them… but I also have given to artists whose blogs I follow, because I know how much time and thought goes into their creations… and I know how much they appreciate it…

So… if you’ve read this far… you’ll see in the right sidebar a button that says “support” (edited: or depending on the device you are using it could also be at the bottom of the page, or even in the left sidebar… I give up…) This link will take you to PayPal, if you should feel like contributing to the art that will always be available here on the blog :-) You can also find my mailing address in the “Contact” section of my website.

As always, I’m wishing you all a wonderful day, and take good care…

Happy December 10th!

On Sunday I drove 35 minutes to my storage unit to dig out my Big Box of Christmas Stuff. I actually did hear something jingling in the box when I put it in my car, I am going to assume that it’s bells and not broken ornaments…

My cold seems to be be easing up, I also went for a good woodswalk with the porcupine, helped load some firewood, and found the perfect little Christmas tree for my apartment… on the furthest corner of his property. He says there are similar trees closer to his house but I have my doubts.
