“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”
I am really not quite sure how it has become that time of year again, but oh boy has the tail of the end of the year come up fast.
Many, many changes this year for me, with even more coming as we enter the new year — however, one tradition is staying the same:
The SamSketches 4th Annual Holiday card is finished and on order.
And as the tradition holds, this limited edition card print (signed and numbered) is free to anyone who trusts me with their address, allowing me to mail it to them. It is a token of my sincerest thanks to followers and patrons for supporting me once again throughout the year.
I am delighted to have been able to already have added new addresses my constantly growing card list. But, not to worry there are still a few slots left!
To any interested, you may email me, firstname.lastname@example.org, with your request for one. Or, reach me via any other form of communication at your disposal.
For the third year running, there will be a SamSketches calendar.
It is my hope for this third year that it will be gracing even more homes than its predecessors. The pieces selected, for the most part (not going to lie and say every single one), were done so with a special meaning behind each month assignment.
- July includes an illustration of Gader because it his birth month — his birthday will also be noted on each calendar as well, you’re welcome.
- August’s image and words refer to music, a reference selected for the birth month of the man responsible for my eclectic taste in and knowledge of music.
- October’s words come from the artist I share a birthday with in that month — Picasso.
And the rest — have fun trying to figure out and guess … or don’t and just enjoy the imagery. :)
I am currently awaiting my draft copy of the calendar to make sure it all comes out exactly as I would like it to. After I have held it and am okay with it, it will formally go on sale — $15 (w/ free shipping to your home).
For now, I am keeping a list of those interested in securing a copy from my first shipment of calendars, which has been impressively growing each day. (thanks!)
If you have not yet contacted me about making a calendar yours please do so to be part of the first shipment to go out! — simply email, text, FB comment/message, tweet, stop me in person
