Well, I've been really busy the last few weeks finishing up details before the holidays, but I spent some time on a project that I wasn't really expecting a week ago and thought I'd share it with you. For the past 17 years there has been a craft bazaar at Wawasee Middle School at the beginning of the holiday season. This year it takes place this coming Saturday, December 1st from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Syracuse/North Webster Habitat for Humanity Initiative is going to be there with an opportunity for you to contribute to their effort to raise money for Habitat homes to be located in Syracuse and North Webster. They have put together a cookbook with a ton of great recipes. It also features some artwork from local artists, including yours truly. So, my time? Well, I worked on some of the art pages for the book which feature images of antique postcards from my mother's collection.
As I worked on the project I was really struck with how important these images and their stories are. And how important images of our families and our moments together will be for future generations. Family portraiture is an heirloom to treasure.
Here are a few of the images from the book that I created as well as the cover which features one of my photographs. Look for the Habitat folks and pick up one of the cookbooks for your kitchen for $12.50. There will be a limited quantity on hand, so do that as soon as you arrive! Of course, if you sleep in, you'll still be able to order them. And if you miss out completely on Saturday, but think this would make a perfect Christmas gift for your favorite cook...contact Jennifer and she can hook you up!
