December is Here…

And so begins my second annual Photo-A-Day till Christmas!

I don’t need to tell you any longer all about making handmade gifts, giving from the heart, not spending yourself broke…. you’ve either heard and heeded or you are shopping like a mad fool…

Between now and then, (23 more shopping days, according to the little ticker) I am simply going to try to place in your world a simple reminder of what ELSE Christmas is about, other than the acquisition and disbursement of huge chunks of STUFF….

So, sometime around now, every day, a photo, and maybe even a quote….

Last year I received so many viewer’s memories as I shared photos….I would love to hear your stories again this year!

The gift of art…

(What do you mean you haven’t STARTED your Christmas shopping yet??)

You do realize that this time next week, the stores will be crawling with holiday shoppers, that you are NO LONGER AHEAD of the game, that you can’t say, “Ah, yes, well, I’m finished already,” with that superior little smile of yours…

Its getting close now… the little ticker says 34 days.

You realize that you don’t have to spend lots of money to give personal gifts to friends and family alike. You know that special is better than expensive. Carefully thought out is better than load the shopping cart, one in every size for every name on you list.

What will you do with that knowledge? Are you making intelligent decisions, or will you find yourself trolling the hallways of the mall last minute, like last year?

I have a solution! And a reward for your sensible shopping! (It’s still BEFORE  Black Friday, and you can keep crossing off those names!!)

A FREE GIVEAWAY! The TENTH (10th) person to order photographic prints from my website after this post is posted will receive a free 11×14 print from my site. Any image that you want; you can gift it or give it to yourself as a reward for finishing up that Christmas list!!

By the way, this IS a win/win situation, because whether you are #10 or not, you will have made some Christmas purchases!

Rules will be:

  • Go to The View From the Passenger Window.
  • Order something. Anything. (Everything, lol)
  • I receive an email confirmation of your order.
  • Based on the date/time stamp of the message, I will identify lucky #10!!!

Pass this message on!

Happy Shopping!
