Thanksgiving is not even here yet and I can already see the stores are getting geared up and ready, and one even having Black Friday sales .Whats up with that ? The Rockefeller Christmas Tree is even being lit a week earlier this year . What ?
I love Thanksgiving and we all have so much to be thankful for, so for one I am slowing down and trying to Be Still for a time each day and reflect on the meaning of both Thanksgiving and Christmas before doing all the day to day things that need to be done before our celebrations .
I do want to share some encouragement for those of you who have artwork and want to make gifts for Christmas this year , you still have plenty of time . Here is what you need good photos of your artwork . You need a minimum of 13 pics for a calendar but of course the more you can choose from the more fun it is . You can make your own calendars , cards and so much more today with sites like Moo.com , Shutterfly , Cafe Press and Zazzle. Here are a few pics to get some ideas.
Here is my traditional desk calendar that I also make from Shutterfly ( no Shutterfly has no idea I am recommending them . I am just passing along products I love.
I do hope you will go through your own art work and make some of your own gifts this year . You still have plenty of time and if you don't have art work ready for this year start in January and by next Fall you will be ready to go .
I have spent my morning with The Lord and now I am headed to my easel . You have a wonderful day and I will talk with you again soon. Of course if I can help you in any way please don't hesitate to contact me.
