Some very good friends are on an airplane right now headed to Italy for Christmas. Before departing on
their holiday adventure they treated us to homemade pizelles, raspberry linzer cookies and hazelnut linzer cookies. Kadee and I will happily be munching away on these as we knit all day long....
brisk wintery walks in the evenings
cookies baked...and eaten
packages arriving at my doorstep
a swedish gingerbread house was built
ornaments unpacked and put upon the tree
sleeping in has been relished
cozy socks fill the laundry
layers of colorful scarves piled up to wear
lists written and checked off
cards still to address
...and the week begins
Each year a new poster is chosen for this frame, a fresh mantra thanks to The Poster List!
My hard work and late nights were greatly rewarded on Saturday and Sunday at Unique LA.
As you can see I sought out Jambas, pies, green tea and cookies for sustenance. Thank you to everyone who helped me (I owe you!) and everyone who visited my table and purchased items from me. It warms my heart when someone asks if I am the artist, is excited about seeing my work for the first time or tells me they come each year just to seek out my creations. There is something extra special about the Holiday Unique LA, although I'm getting more sleep this week I kinda miss all the late night preparations.
