Holiday Cheer!!!

Don’t you love making gifts for the holidays? We made a family decision a few years back that we wouldn’t spend money, we would each just make something for one another and it was such a great experience we continued the tradition 🙂
One of my favorite things was the hand written letters from my husbands father, George… He wrote beautiful words about each of us and how proud he was of our lives…
Pure treasure 🙂
Wishing you and yours a lovely new tradition and a very happy holiday season.
With much love,
Lynn

Quite simply, we all have so very much to smile over. Dear pals, beautiful sky’s, fur people, painting, color, laughter, fresh air, singing out loud, swings, water, dancing, chocolate, cooking, harmonizing, playing outdoors, learning, funny stuff….and that is just the tip of the iceberg that is a list of great things to be thankful for!
oh, and I love you!!
make stuff and enjoy as much as possible!!
XOXOOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOOXXOX
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU AND YOURS!!

Don’t you love singing, especially with friends? I do!!

ditty of the day

I hope you all had amazing and joyous holidays that were filled with OH so much giving and laughter and delicious food, and sugar and fun and “Oh Be Joyful” (the family nog) and tender moments and music and twinkly lights and EVERYTHING your heart desires with just a teeny sprinkle of family nuttiness and a dollop of home made whipped cream (extra vanilla) to top it all off.

And now it’s time to begin a fresh NEW year! YAY!

Here is a goofy idea to kick off the good times. My brilliant, talented and beautiful pal Margo and I wanted to begin a little give and take, find and share, LOOK,SEE,DO spot where we can celebrate yummy visual goodness and delicious creative acts that inspire us and make us want to move our hands and engage our curious minds. Just two dopey friends, who live across the country, who want to chit chat and share things that we find exciting.

I say we start with a little somethin-somethin I am going to call “The Ditty of the Day” Margo said her new years resolution was to play the guitar 300 out of 365 days this year. I love that! Don’t you love that?? So this is a starting place to keep us in the game. Now, I am not saying which days this will happen, haaaaa, but at least lets let the dialogue begin!!

Also look for our new blog called lookseedoo.tumblr.com. Follow the fun 🙂
