Welcome to my Holiday Post Extravaganza
with a bit of poetry mixed in too!
Holidays afoot come view my
fine artful fashions,
The images I’ve drawn are sure
to pique your passions.
They’ll sparkle, and they’ll delight you
from morning till night,
Bring those sugary plum fairies
right into your sight.
Melt away your woeful worries
leave you in sweet bliss,
With fine fanciful images
you won’t want to miss.
Settle back in that grand chair, that
one oh so cozy,
Drift away to your dreamland with
thoughts only rosy,
If you care to take a peak, my
wares may amaze you,
I’m poised and properly ready
to fulfill your queue.

Your art is lovely, with such a broad range from whimsical to realistic. Thanks for giving us a peek! You’ve found a poetic way to spread a sales pitch for your passion – very clever. Have fun with your holiday adventures! Oh, and I loved listening to Makali sing.

Wishing you joyful holidays, and lots of Etsy “cha-chings” on your phone, Michelle – ;0) I hope your galleries all have a sparkling season, too.
Thanks Robyn, and sending those wishes for Etsy “cha-chings” right back to you, Cheers!
Michelle — You know I’ve had my eye on that Hanukkah menorah all year. It’s such a gorgeous image. Love the poem you made for your shop!
Hi Laura, thanks. I often hunt around for older historical images to create art from. The sage menorah is a biblical plant that grows in Israel, and was my inspiration. Here’s more info on it https://forward.com/food/356711/the-secret-sage-scented-history-of-the-menorah/ Happy Thanks Giving and approaching Holidays! BTW I’m offering a small cyber sale at my Etsy Shop through December 2nd, 2018.
