Merry to Happy


May this final holiday stretch of the year be filled with all that is truly joyful!


Deck the Walls!


And so it starts. The last few years I would have been busy prepping for the December open studios. Now, in the world of the internet I am spending time on the phone with tech support trying to get things all set up for holiday shopping! Not been a techie it is much tougher for me! Anyhow, now that I have spent 2 evenings on uploads and such, I have my selections up and the first of the holiday specials ready to go. I might be a bit early, but given that Thanksgiving is just around the corner I am betting I will blink and it will be mid December. And that is without any unexpected snowstorms!!

Merry to everyone


I love to wish people Merry Christmas, and yes I know not everyone celebrates the holiday. It is more the chance to say “merry” than anything else, it is a word that is really used only at one time of year which makes all the more special. To me it feels as if we must seize the very merriness that is here and gone. Happy is used all year long, happy birthday, Halloween, anniversary, etc, but merry on the other hand has a glitter to it that never gets dull through use. When I say Merry Christmas it feels like I am wishing  the person the chance to be merry, be light, be filled with good feelings. To make merry, be filled with merriment and to delight in the lights, sights, scents and joy of the season. And so I say to all of you Merry Christmas! May your holiday of celebration contain much merriness.
