The Master Key

"Love is the master key 
 that opens the gates of happiness."
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes


"Holiday gift suggestions:  
To your enemy, forgiveness.  
To an opponent, tolerance.  
To a friend, your heart.  
To a customer, service.  
To all, charity.  
To every child, 
a good example. 
To yourself, respect." 
~ Oren Arnold

Love,

Gifts That Keep Giving

"Everyone has a gift for something,
even if it is the gift of just
being a good friend."
~ Marian Anderson


It is getting down to the wire for holiday gift shopping!
There is less than a week before Christmas and Hanukkah is now in full swing. 

Many people are now scrambling to find that elusive, perfect gift.
The gift that keeps giving isn't usually readily available at a store, however.
The perpetual gift is the present that will outlast the present and it often requires
more thought and insight as to how the recipient may benefit.

I have issued quite a few personalized gift certificates
so far this holiday season and suspect that the rush isn't over just yet.


And there are still a couple of spots available for my
Pre-Pay January Studio Classes.


“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
– Wiliam Butler Yeats

for art, calendars, supplies and instruction, in any amount here.

Thanks So Much for Stopping By
And Happy Holidays!
