Halloween will be different this year with the pandemic going strong. The holiday has evolved since I was young and we can keep evolving with the times.
We may not be able to gather at parties or go trick or treating, but we can continue to celebrate the day when people can show off their creativity and be someone else.
HOW CAN WE CELEBRATE THIS YEAR?
Zoom has become a form of communication where we can interact with each other real time on video. Those who love to dress up in costume can still do so and have a gathering on Zoom or another platform.
We love to decorate our homes this time of year, and that is something we can still do. And while others can not visit us in our homes this year, we can share photos on social media.
If we can not be with our friends and family, we can still connect with them by sending cards and gifts and let them know how. Much we miss them.
For an array of Halloween cards and gifts visit Wendy B’s Studio on Zazzle. We want to help you keep the holidays vibrant during the pandemic. Have a safe one!
About a month ago a neighbor contacted me saying she had rescued a dog from a shelter who was about to be put down. She was looking for someone to adopt her and thought of me. I was reluctant at first, but finally agreed. Now my adopted pet is truly my best friend and makes me smile every day.
My dog Lainey is a great companion, but having been abused by a previous owner, she does come with some baggage. The trick is to learn how to work around her little quirks and to build trust. She is a slave to routine and keeps me on track. Bed time is around 9 PM and every morning at 7 AM we go on our walk to Starbucks or I hear about it.
Now that I have adopted her it is hard to believe a shelter was going to put her down. I would have missed out on so much and it makes me sad to think of other pets during the Covid crisis that are being put down because the shelters are not open during the virus.
Pet adoption can have its difficulties, but the rewards are so great that you forget about the struggles. If you are thinking about getting a pet, please consider adopting from a shelter or rescue facility, you may just find your best friend.
The power of positive thinking is the best gift you can give someone. It can change lives. Today in a world where nothing is the same as it was just a short time ago, and the uncertainty of the future, receiving some encouragement can go a long way.
At Wendy B’s Studio we want to be able to give you that power. We have a collection of items that will brighten the day of your favorite person. Be sure to visit the shop on Etsy and take a look.
I have always loved the different shapes and textures of the Cactus plant. There are many varieties that come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Here in Southern California the cactus plants can grow quite large. I love to document and photograph the different cacti I see here in the Venice area. Wendy B’s Studio is now on Dreams Time with our photography where you can download some of our favorite photographs.
I know I do! These fun pin-back buttons are great for decorating backpacks, hats and jackets. You can find this set and others at wendybsstudio90264 on Etsy. We are adding new items all the time so be sure to have a look!
One of my favorite things to create in the studio are greeting cards, especially funny greeting cards. I like to make people smile. This week we have added several items to our shop on Etsy at wendybsstudio90264. Many of the new items are greeting cards and watch for more to come.
I hope you will find something you like. Reach out to someone who could use a smile with a greeting card from Wendy B’s Studio.
This week we at Wendy B’s Studio are excited to offer watercolor print greeting cards from some of my recent watercolor paintings. Each card is printed on Moab Entrada Rag 190g, 100% cotton acid free paper and comes with a matching envelope. Each card is printed in the studio, ensuring excellent quality.
The wonderful thing about these cards is the inside is left blank allowing personalization of each card. The prints can be matted and framed to make great gifts or home decor.
