Happy Holidays! Thanks so much to everyone who has stopped by this space over the year to leave a comment or just wandered by to browse. And thank you to everyone who has supported my shop over this past year. I really appreciate it.

Best wishes for a happy 2012 and I will see you back here in the New Year!

What a whirlwind few weeks it has been! Now I'm done with the holiday shows and have (almost) completed my Christmas shopping. I still have yet to bake any Christmas cookies. Got to remedy that somehow this weekend.

We have our tree up and decorated. I've always thought the Christmas tree began as a pagan tradition of leaving a tree filled with food for the birds and animals during the darkest, coldest days of winter, but after looking it up the other night, I discovered there is another explanation as well. Apparently, December 24th is the feast day of Adam and Eve, and the tree represents the Paradise tree in the Garden of Eden, while the ornaments represent the apple of knowledge.

Hope you have a nice weekend whether it is filled with holiday plans or not!

What a busy time of year! This poor blog has been so neglected this season, something I plan to remedy in the new year. My studio is filled with red and blue today as I clean it up after a whirlwind week of making and weekend of selling. Now it's time to start thinking about the holidays for my own family.

I've got a few new things to post in my shop this week if I can get some good photos. Otherwise, I'm afraid it's looking a bit sparse after a busy weekend of sales at Michelle Willey! Thank you to everyone who stopped by our trunk show there...it was SO great to meet and chat with all you lovely people.

These are the last of the grainsack pillows for the year, so if you are interested in them as holiday gifts, please be in touch. If they ship early this week (US, not international, sorry!), they should make it in time for Christmas.

We are getting our Christmas tree tonight...I can't wait. It's my favorite part of Christmas.

The last sale of the year. This weekend Angela and I will be at Michelle Willey both Saturday and Sunday in the South End. I've been working all week getting some brand new things ready. Got a few more things in the works to get done by the end of today!

Thank you to all my lovely friends and family who came to the sale last Sunday. It was fabulous to see you all. Thanks so much as always for the wonderful support.

Getting my house ready for the Holiday Sale this Sunday! At the eleventh hour I start to get nervous and for me that means I try to do way too much at the last minute...like start baking a bunch of cookies the morning of the show or dusting all the window moldings and stressing everyone in my house out (well, mostly just myself, I guess). This afternoon my nervous energy got channelled into making an impromptu inspiration wall in my dining room.

Anyway, if you are in the Cambridge area this Sunday, please stop by the Holiday Sale!

Sunday, December 4th
1 to 5 pm
36 Shea Road
Cambridge, MA

Angela, Aileen and I will have lots of lovely holiday gifts for sale and some nice things to eat too.
