Handmade & Heartfelt: Holiday Recap

“You have no idea how hard I've looked for a gift to bring You. 
Nothing seemed right. 
What's the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, 
or water to the ocean. 
Everything I came up with 
was like taking spices to the Orient. 
It's no good giving my heart and my soul because 
you already have these. 
So I've brought you a mirror. 
Look at yourself and remember me.” ― Rumi

This year Satch wrote, illustrated and published a book as a Christmas gift for his cousin about her adorable dog, Frannie.

He worked on it during our Spring break road trip to visit family...a very long drive.

December brings with it a furry of creative endeavors.   There's our seasonal greetings and... 

our annual gratitude cards handed to everyone from the postman to barista making tea before the holiday parade and...

our family calendar project filled with snapshots from our favorite moments throughout the year.  (Below: a screen shot whilst working on the project.  September is Satch and the Wood Trush)

There's paper snowflakes, solstice parties, and holiday magic of every variety.

Farewell December, you creative crescendo of the year! 

Welcome 2014 and the blessings you bring.
