There are Pros and Cons to being an artist. We each have our own lists of how the pros and cons play out in our lives. When it comes to gift giving, the pros outweigh the cons.
In spite of not being affiliated with any organized religion, I am the Godmother of two extraordinary children whom I love dearly. When it comes to giving them gifts, anything I might buy in a store would be lost among the treasures given to them by their loving parents and grandparents. What I can do, is create something unique using my ability to draw. Baer loves Super Heroes. He also loves to draw and paint. A triflexigon of Captain America, Batman and Spiderman will (I hope) delight him. Along with the illustrated, Super Hero Triflexagon, I am giving him a blank one to create his own transforming designs. Generally, I wait until a few days after a birthday or Christmas to present my gift so that it doesn’t get lost in the excitement of the special day and so that I can spend some one on one time revealing the magic of creating. I’ll let you know on Wednesday if he likes his present.
