On this first day of December, I celebrate the woman who always makes this month merry through her artwork.
I recently posted about a visit I had with my mom, Carol Dyer. Well, during that trip, we visited McBride Gallery in Annapolis where my mom’s artwork is shown and sold. Every year, Mom creates a Christmas-themed painting of the ever-so-charming capitol of Maryland. This year's painting has sold and it's captured on the cover of the 2021 Annapolis Christmas card, available exclusively at the gallery. This year’s painting features the historic Chancery Lane (one of many narrow pathways that criss cross Annapolis).
Here’s the story behind Chancery Lane:
After General George Washington voluntarily resigned his military commission to the Confederation Congress in Annapolis in December of 1783, he cut through an alley from the State House to his hotel. That alley is Chancery Lane which provides a direct route from the Capitol Building to the bustling Main Street, the home to shops and the wonderful McBride Gallery. And with all that red brick and the dome peaking out at the top of the steps, it’s become a popular spot for selfies and photo shoots. So of course, Mom and I had to take a photo.. and when the people taking our picture realized my mom is the artist who captures Annapolis lore so perfectly… they wanted a photo with her! Not bad for 88 years old!! I am so proud of my mother.. and grateful to witness all the joy she brings to others with her art, especially at this time of year!

Spent 2 hours with 2 of my favorite people today & dug a bit deeper into a Denver story I love to share💕
With JSA Video Productions by my side, we visited the studio of Joy Benenson, the GivingArtist.
Joy is an exceptionally creative multi-media artist who captures cultural icons with colored acrylic, articles from newspapers, illustrations.. & every piece is a one-of-a-kind….AND practically every cent raised through the sales price for each original goes to support a non-profit organization.
I’ve known Joy since college & to see her emerge as this vibrant artist is amazing… but…. it’s even more awesome to witness her pro-active love for community & helping others.
Check out her work!! Pieces are hanging at Aviano Coffee in Cherry Creek North.That’s where a Dec 17th art sale/fundraiser will take place to support HAVEN, a non profit that supports BIWOC (Black, Indigenous & Women of Color) & non-binary identifying individuals through art & storytelling.

… I will share more of Joy’s techniques closer to the 12/17 show.. thanks to my creative partner Julie Andrews who captured such fabulous video today of the technique and energy of the #givingartist

Sharing the happiest photo I saw online this past weekend... along with the last photo I took during a visit with my Mom.. and the story behind them.
Saturday was the Feast Day of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini and at Mother Cabrini Shrine in Golden, there was a special celebration, Mass and blessing of the fabulous new gift shop there. You can see the great Fr. John Lager sprinkling the shop and visitors with the Holy Water from the Shrine. I left a small bottle of that Shrine water with my Mom as I was heading back to Colorado. That water is so special.
In September 1912, when what we know as the Shrine was a summer camp for orphaned girls, the Sisters complained to #mothercabrini that there was no water to be had on that dry hillside. She pointed to a rock and encouraged everyone to start digging.. and they miraculously discovered a spring that has never stopped running.
Mother Cabrini was filled with confidence, empathy for others and the dedication to advocate for others and for what was right. Mother Cabrini is one of my role models... as is my wonderful Mom.

Kyle, that is one of my favorite places to go...ever since I went through RCIA and became a Catholic. Our home parish is St. Frances Cabrini in Littleton, so we are so devoted to our patroness!

Kyle thank you so much for sharing this with us.

Wonderful pictures and story. Thank you!

Wonderful story! ❤️🙏

So sweet!

She must be a lovely lady to have raised a wonderful woman like you 🌹

Your mom looks so sweet as you are Kyle! Cherish every moment. God bless ❤️ you both!!!

This great photo will become a reminder of the memories you make this weekend. Tell Carol I said hi.

Enjoy! I cherish the memory of taking a trip with my Mom before she passed away..

I have so many wonderful memories of our summers in Bethany Beach from birth through high school. Thanks for giving me the chance to reminisce this morning.

It is gorgeous. I have a friend there and went to help her out after her breast cancer surgery and was shocked that Delaware was so beautiful.

Love Bethany Beach! Enjoy your family time 😊

I love that house…and both of you!! ♥️♥️

Such a blessing! As a mother I treasure each second I have with my "kids"! Life is so busy for all of them, and how wonderful to have them help with " sorting". It is a monumental task for one.....

Have a great time with your mother.

Two lovely ladies and I love the word blustery.

I love this !! I grew up with summers in Bethany beach ! Love BB - miss Wallace’s Crab shack that burned down CO is home now ❣️

Two beautiful ladies! Enjoy your time. Great to see you!

Two beautiful ladies. Have a terrific time!!!

Enjoy your time with your mom!❤️

Cherish every moment & enjoy your time together, God has given you both big blessings.💕💕💕

What a blessed time together! 😇

Enjoy your special time together. 🥰

I see where your beauty comes from. She has the same smile.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

You both look great!

Give her a kiss for me.

Beautiful

Enjoy, enjoy.

Now that November is here, construction will soon be starting on the future home of Women's Bean Project... look at this massive space!!! Life changing work will be happening here!
This coming Spring of 2022, Women's Bean Project will make the move from it's 2,500 square foot building in Curtis Park (a former firehouse)... to this 20,000 square foot spot at 1300 W. West Alameda (formerly a used car dealership). "We will serve more women.. and we'll serve them better," CEO Tamra Ryan tells me. "We'll be able to operate based on the women's needs rather than space limitations."

Women's Bean Project grew 40% during the 2020 pandemic! And with the larger space, it will be able to hire more women... up to 100 women a year, women who have faced chronic unemployment. And, the new Women's Bean Project location will be accessible to public transit and adjacent to future supportive housing. Aside from the larger production and shipping area you see here, there will be private meeting spaces for counseling and mentoring, classroom space for life skills training, a computer lab... and yes, right through the front door will be the wonderful food products and mixes on display, ready for customers to pick up.

The food is delicious.. but beyond that, the women who make the mixes for us all to enjoy are discovering a new path in life for themselves and their families, thanks to this transitional employment program where they are supported and given responsibility as well as guidance as they sharpen their skills and focus on the future. Upon graduation from the program, the women are job ready and confident. In FY20, 100% of women were employed over a year after graduating from Women's Bean Project.
I'm very excited for the next chapter for Women's Bean Project!... but first, I'm ready to head to the firehouse location on Curtis for holiday shopping (thinking of the Firehouse Chili on this cold day today)!

I enjoy there soups, such a great program to support

SUCH a wonderful organization! So excited to hear this happy news!! (Ten Bean Soup is my favorite. 😊)

I am so excited to see this happening in my neighborhood!! Congrats !!

I love the seasonal Open House. Maybe the new location will be easier to find, but it will be farther from my house. I loved the old firehouse, though. Best wishes!

Wow, thank you for sharing this, so we can support them! Brynn Conroy their food is plant-based ❤️
