If Only In My Dreams

Michigan Postcard Collection

We’ve been listening to Christmas songs at work for about a month now. I think I have heard every possible variation of every classical Christmas song ever produced for radio. One that has been sticking in my head lately is “I’ll be Home for Christmas” by Bing Crosby, perhaps because this is the first Christmas that I WON’T be going “home” to Michigan. I was so fortunate to be able to go home three times this past year but, unfortunately, I do not have any additional paid-time-off to use.

While I will not be traveling to Michigan this holiday season, I will certainly be thinking of the Great Lakes State. I put together a collection of my Michigan postcards and hung it up today. “I’ll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams!”

Getting Ready for Halloween

Halloween is my favorite time of year!

I really like all parts of the Holiday…from the costumes to the candy, the haunted houses to the changing leaves. As you know, I like cats too, so this little drawing really makes me smile. This grinning cat is ready to celebrate Halloween with you. I sketched the ideas for the drawing with pen and ink, then made this version digitally.

I can’t wait to turn this in to a screen print. I think it would make an awesome print or tote bag. Stay tuned for more Halloweeney fun!!!
