How did the 2 soul sisters get so creative? (I think our parents had something to do with that)


Meet our parents... Bobo and GA
better known as Mr. Bob and Miss Elaine
Yep, you can tell by those matching sweatshirts that our Dad doesn't think like most! He thinks outside of the box and that is pretty much how our Mama raised us...to be our own unique creations of God!
 
 This is how our Dad would wrap our Christmas gifts. Each year it is different, but this one was my favorite. The grandkids loved it. If it had your photo on it well, then it was your gift.
 We grew up as printers daughters. We called the printing company "The Shop".
It was a great place to grow up. We learned to appreciate many things working out there in the summers. To this day, I love the smell of dark room chemicals and I do believe this is where we all got our love of photography! The above photo was taken from a t-shirt design that our Dad had made.
 This t-shirt design was from a video store in town that we owned. Our parents taught us the love of a good ole' movie! Keep in mind that we grew up in a small town in Georgia. Reynolds had no red lights but we all learned to drive a car by the age of 10! Our house did not get HBO / Cable TV  until I was a junior in high school...just think about that!
 1969's parents and her daughter!
Growing up, we always noticed that our parents appreciated and encouraged the arts with us. From piano and dance lessons to taking art classes with Miss Mavis! If dad knew someone with an art talent, he would barter with them for us to have "arty" things. This watercolor was an original painting of the printing company. Wow, brings back many memories.
1969 and 1965 decided to exchange art this Christmas! I love my new folk art airplanes! 
Merry Christmas from the 2 Soul Sisters!
Enjoy your family and savor every moment...it is good for the soul!
