Happy Holidays

It’s been more than a few weeks since I’ve been in this space and that’s not because I stopped crafting. Since we last connected I had surgery and needed some time to balance recuperation and work. I’m fine for the most part now, but you know how things get when dealing with life stuff. I’ve missed you all greatly and am looking forward to getting back to regular posting after the holidays. Just to show proof of crafting, below is a picture of a wreath I made after taking an online class recently. LOL! I’ve always wanted to learn this skill and this year, I said why not?!! I signed up for the class which was conducted by Zoom, the greenery and wreath form were mailed to me and arrived well before the class. I have to say, the level of accessibility for any kind of learning has really skyrocketed during the pandemic. If you’re looking for a plus to celebrate during these tough times, this level of accessibility to learning new skills/crafts is certainly one of them.

This is my first wreath and I have plans for making many more wreaths in the future (all being well). What I can say about this one, flaws and all, is that it’s hanging proudly over my kitchen entryway and I love looking at it daily.

More importantly though, as this week begins the lead up to Christmas, I want to wish you and your loved ones an amazing holiday (if you celebrate). The world still feels as if we’re on fire (literally — why is it so hot in December?!!!) but there is still good if we actively seek it out daily. As my Grandmom use to say, part of capturing the best of life’s essence is to seek peace and do good. My wish for each of you is that your holidays and the year beyond bring you both peace and good.

Whatever you do, however you spend it, whether solo or with others, cheers to you and yours (near and far). Happy Holidays!!! ❤

P.S. Don’t judge me … LOLOL! I love how the white pumpkins look with my holiday decor and don’t have the heart to toss them yet. 😀
