Practicing What I Preach

You know the thing - Buy Handmade for the Holidays!  I have bought a lot of beautiful fibre art this year from local artists.  (SO HAPPY!)  This is my latest purchase - a commission from a local illustrator.  I tell you, this was the best thing I've ever done!  I met Leanne Franson on Facebook through some mutual friends.  She is a professional illustrator who has work on children's books and posters & pamphlets from Quebec.  I had this crazy notion for her to put my family on a toboggan, flyin' down a hill to be used as our 2013 family holiday card.  WOW - did she deliver!  Check it out!!

Seasons's Greetings from us!  The Kinner-Whalen Family 2013

Arwen, Liam, Me, my husband Michael, and Corbin.  !  Isn't that the best!??  : )   Her site is here:  www.leannefranson.com   Thank you so much Leanne.  We couldn't be happier!

I tried to respond to your comment on my blog and it wouldn't go to your email. I don't want you to think I ignored it. Happy holidays!
