Happy Winter Solstice everyone!
I have a special affinity for December 21 not only because it's my birthday :-)
but more importantly I love taking time on the Solstice to reflect on the quiet and stillness of winter, and the promise of things to come.
The evergreens laden with snow.
Buds appearing on deciduous trees, ready to burst forth in the Spring.
Quiet walks on crisp mornings.
Like no other time of the year, that feeling that I'm a part of nature. And that it's a part of me.
For me this is joy.
So I wanted to capture this in some custom word art that I could print and hang in our home to keep me in tune with this feeling.
And because you're awesome, you can click here to download a free PDF copy. It's 8.5" x 11" with approximately 1/4" margin all the way around so if you plan to frame it, a thin frame works best.
Enjoy this very special Winter Solstice day.

|[add fresh greens to an old wreath, embellish and hang from the chandelier].|
So I have this old wreath that I drag out every year and this year I looked at it and thought "oh boy this thing's about on it's last leg..."
But it has a great frame so I figured it was worth keeping around a little longer. But how to give it a new life?
Hmmm I said. Hmmm again. Staring, staring, getting nowhere.
Ah! Cup of coffee will help. Brief intermission...
Got it! Let's start with some fresh cedar branches.
