This week's theme was "disaster relief." For a good share of this week, I wasn't certain I'd be able to come up with a suitable illustration. It's a very heavy subject, and I didn't know what would do it justice. I came up with a relatively light take on the topic: a gift basket of sorts. Monkey and I have donated through the Red Cross, but in case you're looking for other options, here's a good list of other worthy organizations accepting donations.
The gift basket angle of this illo (admittedly, pretty light fare and couldn't really hold a candle to the heaviness of the horrible situation of the tsunamis) came from the thank you gift baskets I put together for my super neighbors.
I think the Thank You baskets went over well. (I hope so, anyway). I went for a straight-to-the-tummy-because-that-takes-you-then-to-the-heart tack...kolacky (I bought them from the bakery--no time to bake now that I'm back in the cube farm!), my instamocha mix, a box of Turtles, and a caramelized pecans candle by Meltables.
(shhh, timesaver tip: I cheated and popped the bakery cookies into cute little takeaway containers...the cookies do taste really homemade!).
And by gum, I think this is a gnome-gets-good-lovin week, because this evening I found the most delightful package from Mrs. Rubber-Sol. I am feeling a bit spoiled:
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, Leslie & Hank!
Happy weekend, all! Take good care and stay warm and safe!
