DAY 1: 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE

Good morning and happy Friday everyone!  Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving [for our American customers]! We are so happy to welcome you to the 6th annual 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE!   Welcome to DAY #1 If this is your first time with us, thanks so much for joining us. There is a lot of "fine print" info at the bottom of this post that you might want to read to understand how this all works…but beware that your item might sell out while you are reading LOL!! Over the last couple of years, what we have learned is that during this sale no one… and I mean no one… is interested in anything I have to say here that is cute or whimsical! In the past I have written poems and shared funny store… but let's be honest, you…

Classic Yuletide BOM Updates…

We are well under way on our latest Block-of-the-Month program and have just sent out Month 4 last week so hopefully all of you have received it by now. We are really enjoying the various combinations of red, green and cream that we are getting to play with and hope that you are too! We are tracking many of you via your emails and photos and your Instagram posts and it looks like many of you are keeping on track and current! I am so proud of you! This program is only two 16" blocks each month so it is totally "keepupable". I think that should be word, don't you? Here are some photos of the each month's blocks so far…      … this photo shamelessly borrowed from Greg at greydogwoodstudio on Instagram because our second block for…

Just a Few Updates

Hello Everyone! Wishing you the most merry of Christmas holidays! I really hope that as the holiday stress rises and you feel more and more like you are not ready, or the presents are not ready, or your house is not ready, that you are just able to take a minute and breathe…. And then breathe again… and then make yourself a cup of tea and sit down next to the Christmas tree or the mantel or any other place that makes you feel "in the spirit" and take a moment to take it all in. Whatever "it" might be. Even for those of us who might be experiencing difficult situations, mourning, loss… there is still usually something that we can "take in". Something that can make us smile regardless of what is happening around us. I just wish and pray…
