Recently I read this:  “Here’s an idea:  Let’s buy Christmas presents from small local businesses and self-employed people.  For example, from your neighbor who sells online, a local craftsperson who makes jewelry, the stunning local florist shop, the local bakers that bake homemade cakes, buns and chocolates.  The guys that run a cafe or a salon, let’s make sure our money goes to individual people, and not huge corporations.  This way more local people will have a better Christmas.  Support REAL PEOPLE.”



Once again, I can’t remember when I met Laura, but it was through my friend Maris I think.  Actually like many friends I’ve never met Laura in real life, but just followed her story and journey from afar via her blog.  I was drawn to her art immediately and have grown to love every single things she creates.  If you get a chance to go and check out her blog I highly recommend.  Not only will you find 146 other things you wish you could buy for yourself and Christmas gifts (which I highly recommend you doing), but you will see her amazing story and how she lives her life.  I don’t know this woman personally, but she inspires me to give more.  Not of my money, although I’m sure she does plenty of that, but of my time and my life . She is a GIVER and is always doing something to bless someone else and that’s something I could grow about 110% in my life.

Laura from Pitter Patter Art has agreed to give a beautiful piece to one of my lucky readers.  I can’t say enough how much I love her work and I know you will too! Here’s what she’s giving away to one of you guys!  This would make a fabulous Christmas gift for someone on on your list!
