WOW! 11 YEARS of Christmas Photo A Day!
I know (think? hope?) that you are all enjoying my tiny glimpse into Christmas…
Eleven years ago, the first year I did this, it was via EMAIL. I sent out email! To friends and family Who READ THEM, and responded! Such a quaint, old-fashioned thought!
Back then, “in the olden days” when people didn’t carry phones with more megapixels than the first dSLR I owned, before the GIF, or MEME, before everyone was a graphic artist…
It was a different time, a quieter time…. (goodness, this sounds like great-grandpa talking about walking two miles, uphill both ways through the snow, to school!)
But you know what? It was for ME as much as it was for you. I am a RETAIL Christmas person. I need to find the JOY in Christmas, “the peace on earth” under all it’s commercial nonsense. I NEED to know there is “goodwill toward men” out there! And so, here we are. This is the 10th year I have been posting images on the blog. *(search for old posts over to the right– CPAD or Christmas Photo a Day should lead you down the proper rabbit hole) I hope that the time and effort I put into this yearly endeavor is something that you have found value in, that you have looked forward to, and that you will SHARE these posts, encourage people to visit,
I am making it a bit commercial myself this year. I want to travel next spring–to Scotland, Ireland and Wales with a few of my friends. And the Lottery Fairy has yet to leave me the winning ticket under my pillow. I don’t see Santa being any more accommodating, (although I will hang my stocking like a good girl 🙂 )
Consider this a go-FUNd-me type of thing… but with the added bonus of ART! You get to buy something from my website,(CHRISTMAS GIFTS!! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU) I get $$ to travel, take more photos to post on my website….rinse and repeat. (Obviously, I receive only a portion of the price you pay because of production costs, and none of the shipping— but I want to make my art affordable as well…)
TOMORROW IS SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY. I am a small business! (so are your LOCAL art galleries, who are ready and waiting with unique gifts of art… (tariff-free!)
Christmas Photo A Day starts back up next Saturday, December 1st. Don’t miss a single day–sign up for the blog, or on Facebook like The View From the Passenger Window.
