That’s right, Xmas, snow, jingle bells, and all that glitters, that is my world the last few days as I start to prepare for the making of holiday cards for seniors and shut ins . My sister is a long time contributor to various charities and organizations, this year she was able to get my attention, for the cause, and I accepted. Yes, it is not till later in the year, but as all of you who are card artists and crafters will know, to be done, with access to supplies etc. we start now.
With shops busy with current events, such as weddings, graduations, vacations, winter is far away, and many have their Xmas/winter embellishments and card/paper stock on sale.
In some ways it is easier for me to be creative about a season that is on its way, in months to come, because I get to work in a sun filled studio with the temperature a nice seasonal 60 – 70 something degrees.
With no pressure to get something done, now….. because someone else needs it to do their part. ie. know what inventory they have so they can know how best to serve their clients. I can create and play just “chilling”
The picture of the “tree” was taken a few years back when my other sister was up from California, and we toured a “green” area not far from where we were at t he time.
These are the other hikers we met along the trail.
This is a beautiful time of the year, so much is happening in the woodlands and gardens that are waking after a long winter’s sleep. We are so fortunate for our abundance. Today’s lesson on the calendar #23 is Applaud the Makoto of others (Makoto=sincerity) When you encounter good faith or kindness in others, make sure that you acknowledge it fully.
Brinde aplausos al Makoto de las personas. Cuando recibe cordialidad y amabilidad de los otros, admirelos sin escatimar.
Namaste – Oyashikiri
PL Principle #1 I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto into all I say and do
Life is good
Happy, sunshine and joyful day to you all
