Hey y’all, it’s the Year of the Pig! AND, it’s nearly Groundhog Day—also known as Whistlepig Day. I know everyone is probably busy decorating, baking gingerbread marmots, stringing lights around the groundhog holes in the backyard, and counting down the shadow-viewing advent calendar. Such a festive time of year, celebrating all the groundhogs, whistlepig, marmot-like and pig-like creatures in our world.
But let’s not lose track of the REAL meaning behind all the hoopla, which is this: shadow or not, we each have the ability to decide whether we are ready to welcome the Spring, on our own terms!
I, myself, have been celebrating this year by rustling up some new creative ideas.
In the Year of the (Whistle)Pig, with the intention of keeping a fresh flow of ideas and being able to share my artistic process, I have decided to offer up something brand new: a garden art CSA! We’re talking picnics, produce, preserves, panoramic pictures, plant-and-animal puns. All the P’s. Are you interested in adding a bit of Pizzaz to your world this year? A subscription to Whistlepig Garden Art and Picnic Supply CSArt will include a shipment of fresh, seasonal, original artwork delivered to your doorstep with each solstice and equinox. See my shoppe for more information and all the specifics. I’ll be opening with a limited number of shares, with half-year and full-year subscriptions available.
