"Tis the Season - Do We Really Take the Time to Enjoy Each Other?

Michele Melcher


Here is an illustration that I just did for the December issue of Main Line Today. The article describes how the stress of the holidays - deadlines, shopping, forced-fun holiday work functions, family events etc. can actually make you question whether or not you are really enjoying your time spent together. 

I thought a fun take on the story would be to show the "The Family Holiday Dinner", with many of the different personalities that might be in attendance. There are the misbehaving children, disengaged surly teenagers, the wine snob relative who knows everything, the relative who always starts a political rant, the annoyed relative who doesn't want to be there in the first place, the host who is just trying to make everyone happy and good old grandma, just smiling and taking it all in.

Personally, I really do enjoy the holidays. I love seeing friends and getting together with family who live far away. I like the decorations, the parties, the food, giving and (of course!) receiving gifts! I know that there will always be snafus with the whirlwind of activity that can get annoying and understand that some people really do not enjoy the season because of any list of reasons. Anyway, I hope that you all have a good holiday. Or at least fake having a good one. Or maybe just fly off to Anguilla and avoid the whole thing! :)

PS - I was definitely the disengaged surly teenager. Happy Holidays!

Holiday 2015 Unselfie Orders Are Here!

Michele Melcher

Hello all!
I know that it's not even Halloween yet (the most wonderful time of the year in my house) BUT I wanted to put this announcement up for the 2nd most wonderful time of the year, Christmas! Yup, the winter holidays will be here before we know it and definitely before we are ready for them! In order to give myself a bit more breathing room this year, I will only be taking Holiday orders for Unselfies until Monday, December 7th. This will ensure that you receive your order by December 25th. So if you would like to purchase a great gift for someone special this year go right ahead, the shop is open!

Thanks again for your support!
