Truthfully, all I ever wished for Xmas aside from love, health, comfort and world peace for all, is
A R T S U P P L I E S ...yes, true I can buy these anytime for myself and I do, but
truth be told, I have always made it easy for loved ones to know this is the easiest and best
choice of gift for me. Do they take this advise? ha, almost never. Also funny, I have thought about past relationships and the man always stresses over what to get
his woman (this woman) for the holidays...skip the diamonds, I want art supplies! I'm not kidding!
diamonds are wonderful, gorgeous, but not practical and a new easel,
paints, shelving, canvas, cubbies, paint brushes...are always practical for the Artist.
ART SUPPLIES rule and ARE diamonds to me!
all in truth and all in fun~and BOOKS also make that list...:)or build me a dream 'studio' and you'll never have to get me another gift, ever! :)
and not so practical but definitely necessary to my happiness is my Old World Santa Collection ~
