But that's not all. Sunday, November 24, 12 noon - 4pm is the annual Christmas Art Show at The Center, 12700 Southwest Hwy, Palos Park, IL 60464. If you visit, you will find Marilyn's display in a new place. No longer in the back room looking over the woods, instead turn left when you enter the front door. You'll find art to enrich your soul and gifts for the holidays. Be there or be square.

Rich has beautiful ceramic pieces, some prints, and even a tissue paper painting. My display of handmade papers includes cards, jewelry, pulp paintings, and botanical pieces suitable for framing.
What a great opportunity to see what's going on in town.

|"Twenty-one Ground Hog Salute" MV|
In one of those post-midnight conversations famous to college dorm rooms, I announced that I was going to adopt Groundhog Day as my personal holiday to celebrate. I didn't even know when it was, so I had to look it up on a calendar. Since then, I have made editions of prints for Ground Hog Day cards, sent Ground Hog Day presents when Christmas got too busy, and even did a pencil drawing of "Twenty-one Ground Hog Salute." This was not my original vision of the picture, but my 1970s upstairs neighbor NellaJean inspired me with the military accoutrement. It's fun to know that old friends around the country are thinking of me today, and I am thinking good thoughts of them too.
I've not yet found the orginial short story that inspired Harold Ramis to make Groundhog Day with Bill Murray, but it's time to start searching again. Of course I've watched the movie on my CD, updated from my former VCR tape. We've had hopes of visiting Woodstock, IL, for the occasion, but weather has not been favorable in February. But we have made several pilgrimages to Woodstock at other times of the year.
So have a happy Groundhog Day. I'm having a snowed-in celebration day today.

Most of the jewelry I had in stock has sold, so it's time to make more. Not a time to make the donuts kind of chore, but a fun, creative challenge. This is what I accomplished this weekend.
