Christmas is what you make it

Christmas is where you find it--and what
you make it
 Trina Schart Hyman was a single  mom who had her share of lean times as she persued her illustration career. One of my favorite books of all time is Trina Schart Hyman's How Six Found Christmas.  I love the concept of finding Christmas in an abandoned wine bottle and of making Christmas out of almost nothing.

I suspect there will be many people this year who are wondering how to make Christmas happen with empty pockets.

I promised some interviews with artists who will be on the Vashon Island studio Tour. I haven't forgotten. I just haven't had time to put my thoughts together!

Next post will be about Brian Fisher, print artist and oil painter.
