Yeah, I’m one of those irritating people who rants about stores putting Christmas stuff out before Halloween.
But there’s one time I don’t mind thinking about Christmas early. And it has to do with art, crafts, and dogs.
You Needed 3 Months To Find That?
How long does it really take to pick up some cheap tchotchke at Walmart? Do we really need to have Christmas displays in late September so we can find just the right Wii game or Nylabone?
I’m getting steamed just thinking about it.
But my favorite gifts are unique and hand-made. And it’s those unusual and hand crafted items that take a little time.
I sold nearly everything I owned before we moved onto the boat.
But a few of my favorite things made the cut. And many of them are hand-made.
Beautiful Things Take Time
Allison Gray perfectly captures your loved pet from a photograph you provide and turns it into a colorful watercolor portrait.
Your modest investment of $45 (plus shipping) gives you a unique and colorful portrait you can enjoy forever.
How cool is that?
I have a picture of Honey I think would make a lovely portrait. But sadly, Mike and I have agreed not to risk damaging original works of paper art by having them on our sure-to-be damp boat.
But you don’t live on a boat.
And a custom pet portrait could be a special gift. For yourself. Or someone you love who loves their pet.
Custom pet portraits take from 2-4 weeks so now is the time to think about Christmas. Because beauty takes time. I promise I won’t rant at you for getting ready for Christmas (or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or whatever) too early.
