As the holiday season rapidly approaches don’t forget to not only give to those you love but give gifts you purchased by local artists. Minnesota has a wonderful assortment of all types of artists. Have a friend that likes unique paintings and or charcoal drawings? Look up Danielle Pebbles. Love to read or know someone who does? Local authors include Dana Baird and myself and former McGregor, Minnesota resident Cheryl Strayed. Know someone who likes theater, especially the small local troops? Look up local up and coming actor Maryanne Dorfler. And there are so many, many more crafters and artisans. Anything that one could want that is unique, one of a kind, special can be found.
So, this year don’t just give, but give locally and you won’t just be gifting to the ones you love but your gift will be two-fold. You will have given a wonderful gift to your artisan of choice.
Blessings this holiday season
