R2C Day4: 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist – AI Watercolor
Every year, Ellen Hutson gathers together some crafters to create tags – with a feminine twist! It’s my turn today, along with the talented Laurel Beard…go see her tag over on the Ellen Hutson blog, because she’s got some Art Impressions going, too! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
The vellum tag can be torn from this tag so the watercolored tag can be saved and used for an ornament – or regifted on another package by writing on the back!
The coziness of the cottage on this tag has me thinking about how *not* cozy our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico are this Christmas. They still have sporadic power and potable water. So many homes are still a shell with a tarp tied on top. They’d love to be at a cottage like this one….and though I can’t build them a house, I can do my part and donate.
One of my wonderful readers named María is from Puerto Rico – she is currently in Florida – gave me an update on my previous fundraiser. She let me know that some of the charities have been more effective than others, and she has family on the ground giving her the true scoop. Probably kinda like the government agencies that have been on the sporadic side too. But I was gratified when she told me that The Hispanic Federation/Unidos is doing excellent work, because I’ve been making monthly donations there, at the recommendation of Lin Manuel Miranda (of Hamilton fame) whose recommendation I trusted. It was great to hear the same from a reader who agreed! So….go give. Be generous. Let’s help Puerto Rico have a little bit merrier of a Christmas.
