My granddaughter, Lennon, is 9. She is the oldest and the only girl out of five grandkids. This photo is a couple years old, but it’s so like her, always smiling and happy.
Last time I was home in Mississippi, Lennon gave me an early Christmas present – a tray to use on my desk in my studio.
It’s one of those styrofoam meat trays, covered in cut up pieces of a map. She explained that since I work for the Postal Service, the map made her think of me.
As soon as I get back to Alabama after Christmas, I’ll be Mod Podge-ing her sweet note to the back of the tray, rag-tags and all, so I can have the tray and the note together.
Then I will make good use of my little tray in my studio and I will smile every time I see it. These are the very BEST gifts, don’t you think?
Wishing all my friends and family a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and all the best for the coming new year.
