Many of you know my grandmother passed away this year. This "Foxy Lady" was a piece I painted for her when I was much younger.

This is why we do this.
These are the gifts they keep forever.

My Nana kept my hand painted gift for over 80 years.

Merry Christmas everyone!

PSA:

Please be nice to retail workers (and really, just everyone).

We get the last few years have been hard. We get it's a hectic time of year, but there is never a good reason to scream, yell, threaten or belittle someone who is trying to help you.
Be kind this holiday season (and always)!
