I then decided to make a special card to thank First Federal Savings that I would hand deliver right after work. I actually had a good time...just showing gratitude! When I walked in the door and handed the banker a thank you...well it would have been great to have taken a photo because he did not know what to say. Hmmmm?
I have a big Christmas party coming up where we will paint and decorate wooden ornaments with between 40 and 70 kids participating. I think I need to ask Maya Rose and a couple others for some special assistance. Michelle Channel is taking Santa photos and another corner set up for decorating Christmas cookies! I think this should be real FUN if I can stay organized. I have found some wonderful ornaments at Michaels...on sale! So I have about 100 now and I am ready to peel off price stickers and then get my trusty Dremel tool out and make tiny holes for the ribbons!!! I have learned the hard way that it is better to buy supplies early early early ....so each child will have their choice to make just the perfect 2012 ornaments!
I met another new artist this morning Saundy Brown...she just returned from Hondurus where she performed missionary works in a hospital. Ends up she is related to a good friend Taylor Sears and has been trying to get down here to my studio for quite awhile. I recommended the LCA membership to her and as a place to sell her paintings and her own handmade cards. I gave her the address and a postcard with info...so I hope she joins and begins a new friendship. She did ask me how I found my wonderful space? I quickly changed the subject and we talked about the Aminah Robinson exhibit at The Works!
I have a request for some funny froggy birthday cards!
Christmas is just around the next corner!
