Congratulations on surviving Black Friday!!

Small Business Saturday is today and Monday is Cyber Monday.

I don’t like to do a lot of shopping but I so appreciate people who support small businesses (like mine!).

Artists and privately owned businesses LOVE to receive your business. It makes us feel appreciated.

Because I care about you, I want you to make sure you treat yourself with more conscientious tenderness during this holiday season.

I encourage you to give yourself a gift and take a moment to really b r e a t h e.

Take a break, often.
Take a bath, get a massage, do some yoga.

Even though you feel like rushing around like a chicken with its head cut off: s t o p.

Be present.

And thank you for making small business owners smile today.
We really appreciate it more than we can express.
