The Verriest of Merriest to all of you! My wish is for the best to you in 2011. Thanks for coming here, chatting up my art and a special Thanks! for supporting Ripple. I can't imagine being where I am today if I hadn't started this blog and connected with so many wonderful people. Next year I'll try to find new ways to shake things up. - In the mean time, pass the cocoa and cookies and turn on the Nat King Cole Christmas album. -Cheers!-Kelly

Mags turns 11 today. We're celebrating at the Harry Potter Park in FL. Today- we stay on the kid side of half way and drink tons of butter beer!

I decided to share with you some sketchy characters for the holidays. Have you ever re-gifted?
Been the re-giftee?
I have re-gifted wine. (Un-opened (yes-un-opened!))
There is a crock pot from 1974 that resurfaces in my family some years. It has a red brick motif... I am always afraid it's my year when a big box comes from the UPS man!
Go to The Sketchables- find the link and download high res art!
I was 10 and at tap class getting ready for the Holiday Show, When Margie, my dance teacher came in crying- and said John Lennon had been shot. I don't know how many girls knew- or cared, but my brother and I had been buying Beatles albums with our allowance since I was in kindergarten and we saw Yellow Submarine on TV. By the time I was in college- my walls were covered with his face and his music was always on. I danced to him at my wedding. His picture hangs above my studio door. - It's just never made sense that a man who asked for Peace died the way he did, but He wouldn't want the world to dwell on that- He'd want you to go out and ask for Peace too.

However- perception was "creepy" "unappealing"
Little girl was supposed to look angry- nasty - in a foul mood - "Naughty"
Perception- "cold" "afraid Santa is going to do something inappropriate to her"
So- hmmmmmm. Scrap that. Back to the drawing board!
I love his feet tho.
