Hope I’m not wearin’ out my welcome, but I had to let you know about these cool gifts available from TSHA.  Click on their banner to check out their Holiday Gift Guide for some great specials on books & limited edition fine art prints.  Or how about a Gift Membership for the history lover in your life?  A great gift supporting a great effort to preserve and promote Texas History.  They are sayin’, “Order by December 17 for delivery by Christmas”, so I wanted to let you know in plenty of time to take advantage.

I also wanted to introduce my new and improved Zazzle store at  I updated the layout as well as added some new gift items.   Let me know what you think of it.

Thanks for all of your support!  So far, is off to a great start and I have big plans for the future.  Thanks to all y’all for sharing my efforts with your friends and social networks.  It really works! Now I ask you all for some feedback.  Let me know how you like the site, if it is easy for you to navigate or if I could make some improvements that would make it easier to find your way around.

Texas SnowflakesSince it’s 80 degrees outside, I thought I’d offer a Totally Texas virtual White Christmas for my readers.  Turn the A/C down real low and imagine the snowflakes landing on your eyelashes;)Snowflakes

I am so excited to share this Totally Texas Featured Artisan, Cindi Hendrickson of  Cindi is an extremely talented Jewelry Artisan of the highest caliber.  I have been following Creative Habits on Facebook for a couple of months now as she has been upgrading her garage studio and creating new pieces.  I was so impressed by her skills and dedication to her craft, it almost superseded my awe of her creative talent.  See some of Cindi’s works on her website or better yet, see her in person at the Cherrywood Art Fair this weekend.

The Cherrywood Art Fair is an East Austin tradition in its 11th year hosted by the Chula League.  Along with Cindi and her Creative Habits Artisan Jewelry collection, the Cherrywood Art fair will feature a wide variety of Texas art and artisans from woodworking to ‘iPhonography’, they all look very intriguing.  There will also be food trailers, music and fun stuff for the kiddos while you shop. The event is held at Maplewood Elementary in Austin (map).  Click on their poster to find a schedule of activities and link to a booth map.

From my own collection this week I’m introducing the Yellow Rose Series of designs available on gifts and souvenirs from TotallyTexasGifts on Zazzle.  There are coordinating fleece jackets, messenger bags, IPad Mini Cases, IPad portfolios, phone cases and more, all with the Yellow Rose theme.

‘Til next time, enjoy this Totally Texas Holiday season, 80 degree weather and all.
