So I usually send out Christmas cards and presents weeks before Christmas.... not this year! I sent them out a week before and was sweating it that they would not make it. I need to put a timeline on my 2020 calendar so I am not caught off guard next year. I had planned to make Advent Calendars for my sisters and daughters and fill them with jewelry goodies like last year but it did not happen because I remembered it December 12 and had not made a damn thing yet. Ugh!
Santa was good to me. Patrick came home for the third year in a row. Love that boy! I know the girls could not- Meagan just started a new job and had to work day before and day after. Michelle has a hard schedule to match up also. We did talk and it was wonderful. I also talked with my sisters on Christmas. I think the last Christmas we were all together was before our Dad died so that would have been 1978. I can not remember if they came home before Mom sold the house in 1985. Time has taken those memories. I do have great memories of childhood Christmases and photos and slides to look at.
2020 for Art Happens on Tarboro and Kim S Joy Stained Glass is looking good. The store will be offering more stained glass supplies and lots more stained glass based classes. Last year I was all over the road trying to figure out what people might want. I did not make excellent choices so I have decided to step back and offer the classes and workshops that are close to my heart in hopes that others will fall in love with stained glass also.
We only have 3 full days left to the year. Let's make them three amazing days!
Remember to keep art in your heART!
