Supporting small businesses is so important, and I know you know, as many of you are friends with these artists or you are an artist as well (so skip to the snow and dogs below. You live this speech). Many people rely on this income to support themselves in some way in this economy. It also brings great joy for each artist to be able to create and pass on a bit of themselves to you! A legacy of sorts. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity the participate in the Purely Primitive Doll Challenge. I learned sooooooo much through Barb's book, which I highly recommend. And, I have met many talented artists and new friends. So, please, take a look. And, this Christmas, consider buying something handmade as a gift for someone to pass along a legacy of love that has been poured into the creation by the hands that made it!
I am now leaving my soapbox (hopefully without tripping. It's me, though. It is quite probable... Ow! Yup. There it is.). I return you to your cup of coffee and regular blog reading. Thank you for your time!

"Why is Jack the Sniffer being walked by his person at this hour? I don't like it. "
"What'd I tell you???" "I was sayin hey to Jack"
That's not Jack... (Cue dramatic music)
Have a wonderful weekend!
Love and Hugs!
