Winter 2016

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!  

I’m early for a winter post, but we saw our first snow flakes today, so I was inspired.  I also just put up my Christmas tree for the Concord museum,  inspired by Jerry Pinkney’s book the Grasshopper & the Ants..that puts me in the holiday way is a photo

I have a few new items to report.  First, I’m selling cat toys at Verrill Farm and Firefly in West Concord.  My original plan was to stimulate more card sales by drawing a cat (my buddy Karen’s cat, Louie) with the toy, I thought it would be a nice pairing.  Well didn’t sell many cards, the cat toys are a hit!! HA!  I designed “Redro” with input from my cat Juju.  It’s big, red, has a long tail and is stuffed with organic catnip.  Cats love it!!

 New Cards

There are new Thanksgiving, Sympathy, Flower and soon a new Christmas card on the racks.  I also have many things on the drawing board with little time to finish but I will get to it!


This year my annual Christmas show is the same day as my folk music show, Dec 17th at the Java Room in Chelmsford.  Come anytime between 5-10, there will be lost of music seasonal and home grown!!  Tag, Trude,Kathleen, John and Jon will all be performing.  It’s always a fun night.

Thank You!

My very best wishes to you and your familes for this holiday season and into the new year.   And my sincere gratitude for all the support I receive throughout the year, I couldn’t do what I do without you!

All the best, Betsi
