I am finding a lot of happiness making these for my family members for Christmas. I have listed prints of them in my Etsy shop too! There is a limited number of letters available for now, but as I make them, other letters will become available! If you want, you can order one with your own letter! I have an explanation in my Etsy listings about what motivated and influenced me to make these. I am thinking about all the nice things that people know how to make and how great it would be if we all just gave each other gifts of things we made instead of store bought. The gifts would mean so much more..in giving and receiving them. I have asked my mother for jars of pepper jelly that she makes for Christmas. I would be perfectly content with that! It is the MOST delicious. You can buy it in the store, but it's not like hers. You put a bar of softened cream cheese on a serving tray, pour the pepper jelly over the top and serve with good crackers. She put one out at a recent family get together and it was gone in a few minutes.

I was going through some pictures from vacation last year in search of something interesting to paint. I found these beautiful images of Tahoe. I love the place. The air is so clean and clear. You just smell forest and it looks incredible!
