Unique Christmas Card Idea | Beverly Gurganus Fine Art

illustrated family | Beverly Gurganus Fine Art
Can you believe it is that time already to start thinking about Christmas cards?  Whaat!  I hear ya.  I’m just settling into all things Fall and not ready to let it go so I know how easy it is to put off planning for the next thing.  Christmas, however, will not wait for us to be mentally and physically ready (it’s coming ready or not) and I’m here to help you make the start of the season more personal and beautiful.
Sending Christmas cards is a classic tradition that is one of my favorites, and I like to make a whole special event out of it.  A warm drink (preferably coffee), my favorite pen, Hallmark movie, and fireplace going if it is cold enough.  taking time to send a personal greeting to all my friends and family is important to me especially for those who I can’t see often, and let’s be honest, receiving Christmas greetings is just as exciting.

Sparking Creativity With a Studio Refresh | Beverly Gurganus Fine Art

I decided the studio could use a little refresh, and my creative space is feeling brighter and more inspiring.

My older two girls shared the large bedroom over the garage, and when they flew the coop (one married and moved away, and the other moved in with a friend) I claimed that space for my new studio.  The plan was to turn half the room into a workspace, and the other half would sleep guests.  I sectioned the room into 3 zones…desk area, painting area, and sleeping area.  I was so excited to get my own space that I didn’t even care that it had purple-ish gray walls (Eww!).

A New Beginning Eco Fashion Presentation and Benefit Gala Update

Beverly Gurganus A New Beginning

Last month I was invited to attend A New Beginning Eco Fashion Presentation and Benefit Gala and bring along some of my Children of the King paintings.

It seems like January was a long time ago, but I keep reminding myself that it was just last month.  Isn't it crazy how time works?  My granddaughter's birth seems like it was just a few days ago, and not 5 months ago.  On the contrary, it has felt like much time has past since Christmas. Anywho, I promised to share more about January's event A New Beginning.
