Etsy Excitement

Announcement: Here is a new venue for me, an Etsy site. The banner needs some work. The banner is fine, just my technical skills are a little lacking. So here is my Esty name: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jancalligrapher and expect to see a website in 2010! Exciting stuff. Retirement was overrated! HA.

More Christmas Wishes

As we get closer to Christmas, doesn't it sometimes feel crazy busy? I need to just stop and breathe and be peaceful, loving the sweetness of friends and the love I feel for family. Wishing that peace for you.

Christmas in Our Hearts

I just heard a song on the radio called "It's Christmas in Honolulu." It was a new song to me but one of the lyrics was especially meaningful. The song said, we might not have the snow and pictures of Christmas cards in Hawaii but "It is Christmas in Our Hearts." Coming from the Pacific Northwest, it feels so warm here and so unlike the Christmases of my past but it's Christmas in our hearts for sure.

Time has a way of escaping me. Last week I worked on this special WELCOME order for a customer and then I had to stop and address Christmas cards. Time to get back to my blog!!! I have to admit that some of this is hand lettered and some is computer fonts. For instance, I decided to not try to tackle the greek!
