For all of those from the United States, I hope you had a wonderful, family fun-filled Thanksgiving and have recovered from our typical over indulgence. We had 26 family members at our dinner and it was quite lively (3 great-granddaughters under 6 years of age). I am blessed to have a wonderful family and we are each other’s best friends. I sincerely hope all of you are equally blessed in your own way.

I have completed the ATC’s for my sister’s two children. My niece is a kindred spirit – independent, adventurous and horse-loving. I wanted to give her something soft and beautiful to enjoy during her busy days working in advertising. I found this beautiful image of two geisha in a National Geographic Expeditions catalog, The red and white “rainbow” is actually the rim of a plate from a painting of food. I liked the vintage feel. The burgundy strip is brocade fabric from a clothing catalog and the background is from a painting of a nude surrounded by roses.

My nephew recently completed his masters degree, took his first full time job (as an agronomist working in the farmlands east of Indianapolis) and married. I wanted to present the start of his life’s voyage as an adult, something indicating opportunity and smacking of adventure. The images came from my usual sources. I particularly loved the curve of the horns of the alpine sheep along side the billowing sails and the round pumpkin.
