The craft fair to remember after a tragic week

Today was the Christmas craft fair at church.  It turns out there are some incredibly talented people at our church, who've created pottery, jewelry, and one artist in particular painted some really skilled and detailed portraits of some of the ladies who are very active in the congregation.  They were very well done, but I'm not sure that when those ladies posed topless for the artist they knew the paintings would be on display at this week's holiday event.  They all made a point of staying far away from that table.

This has been a challenging week for us here.  My 2 youngest daughters were distraught to learn on Friday that their beloved Brownie Troop leader died on Thursday afternoon. She was only in her forties and leaves behind two young daughters and a devastated husband.  My heart goes out to them.

Some good news though, our first printed comic of "The People That Melt in The Rain" has received an incredible 5 star review from Jazma Online (apparently an amazing accomplishment as they never give out this many stars!).  Click here to see for yourself!

Blessings to you all as the days grow darker.

To be clear, I think it was just this reviewer who's stingy with the 5star reviews, but that's still something :)

Thank you Claire, the sun is almost always shining in San Diego. :)

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
