A Magic Little Elixir


Sipping coffee..

in the morning (and anytime if I am honest) unbridles that childlike wonder in me. The irony that children aren’t allowed to drink coffee never bothers me much. Why? When I was 4 years old, I snuck a tiny sip of my dad’s coffee when he left it, rather precariously, on the armchair of the couch.

As an incredibly boisterous child, you can imagine my parents never would have let this happen if they knew about. I kept that secret little rebellious taste of coffee for years until I was 12. At this age, I insisted on having coffee. I was stubborn as a mule and energetic as a young pony, so my poor parents had no choice. They had to yield or I would have found my own way in rebellion.

So, here we are, over a decade later, and I still feel childlike wonder and rebellion whenever I take a sip. What will the magic little elixir help me create today?

Christmas Time!

This cold and delicious season can bring out the stress and creative sides of anyone. It’s a magical thing, Christmas. It lights up our lives with lights and bright packages, joyful songs and memories of that year you received exactly what you hoped for.

For anyone who is looking for giving a gift of those memories, I would love to make that memory into artwork for you or someone you care about. Whether it is a portrait of your grandchild or pet, or perhaps a favorite phrase or song verse put into calligraphy, send me a request and we can get it ready for Christmas.
