None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Warm Holiday Wishes

Very gay they were with snow and sleigh-bells, holly-boughs, and garlands, below, and Christmas sunshine in the winter sky above. All faces shone, all voices had a cheery ring, and everybody stepped briskly on errands of good-will. ~Louisa May Alcott, "Seamstress," Work: A Story of Experience, 1873

For some interesting reason which I have been unable to figure out I have a strange fascination with penguins ... or as I call them "pen-goo-ins" lol
This image is from a stamp that my husband actually found for me.

Merry Christmas to One and All!

Oh Louisa May Alcott! I do love reading many of her wonderful novels, Little Women especially. And I do say your hubby has great taste in stamps! This penguin is adorable! Love the sweet facial expression and those long eyelashes. BTW, you got to put a video tutorial on how to color this cutie up along with the cardinal you did a while back. I could use a lesson. I find coloring any birds, even one that can't fly (haha) rather difficult.

Happy Holidays to you and your hubby sweet friend.

Hugs,
Christina
