Now that we're turning the corner on November and Thanksgiving, it's time to look forward towards Christmas. Our Scribble Picnic theme for this week is GENEROUS and very apropos for this time of year. While we did take advantage of good sales this weekend with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, we really do like to cap it off with Giving Tuesday. We choose a cause or two that we LOVE, give GENEROUSLY, and feel a sense of GOODNESS.
I found this quote by Thomas S. Monson that incorporates all of that. I'm a bit out of practice with my hand lettering skills, but I'm pretty happy with it. And I loosely used what I remembered from a tutorial at The Postman's Knock for my watercolor decorations.
We (I) picked a class at Donor's Choose that needed help funding a project and we helped out the birds at The Raptor Trust with our donations this Tuesday as a start to spreading the Spirit of Christmas. I really do enjoy the giving much more than the receiving.
So now I'll head over to the Picnic and be GENEROUS with my comments. Won't you join me by clicking here. And should you like to join in next week, the theme is FINLAND/SCANDINAVIA. Won't that be fun!
