Bigsby's Department Store
It is very late in the night here at Creative Breathing, the most magical time of all in my craft room. It is the time when my characters reveal themselves to me in their completion and come forth with the story they wish to tell.
THE SCENE: BIGSBY'S DEPARTMENT STORE, the night before the Thanksgiving Parade. The store elves excitedly await their assignments for the big day.
The most coveted role of all is leading the parade. Interviews are held.
Uncertainties arise. "I think I'm too new."
"Overhead balloons? We're used to holding our arms outstretched. Not a problem at all."
"Tree Lot AGAIN?"
"Where are our Union representatives? At the potluck!"
"Did you try some of the Cheesy Potatoes?"
"Union Rep here!"
Last minute discussions.
"I've made up my mind!"
"Attention, Please! The leader of this year's Bigsby's Department Store Parade is ....."
What a successful day!
Magical. These characters are all so sweet, I just couldn't wait until the snow flies to share them with you. (They will all be in my Etsy shop the first Friday in December.) A thank you to Laurie, Magpie Ethel for all that she inspires!
