Holiday


It's been a gritty, grinding, soul-searching, eye-opening kind of year. I wouldn't have it any other way, it feels like the proper texture of life, but it has been exhausting. I'm taking a break to stare at the sky for a bit. I'm going to fix my house, make clothes, and read other people's blogs.

Thank you for all the comments you've left here over the past year; each and every one gives me a little thrill, and makes me feel that I'm perhaps contributing something useful to our favourite communial how-to guide. Thank you as well to everyone who bought something from my shop this year. You've helped me put food on the table, but more importantly, it's heart-warming to know that the things I've made have found their way to other people's houses all over the world.

I'll probably see you again in the new year. Happy holidays!

Have fun ... I'm only a few days behind you but I am definitely running on empty and now I have a cold. :( :( (not good timing at all!)

I guess, if our lives were plain sailing all the way, we would start to wonder why, or wonder when something really bad might happen.
I've been reading your blog only for a while, but have enjoyed every visit - thanks for each view of your wonderful creations.
Enjoy the break, and the festive season. May you have a nice long stretch of plain sailing!

Your packet has just arrived. In time for my gift. Thanks.
Have a break, enjoy the sun and come back in 2010 full of energy and list of things to do. Merry Christmas.

Have a wonderful rest and break leading into the new year Jesse. My "potato a day" print is hanging in my kitchen and brings smile to my face every time I see it :)
All the best,
Andrea
