Winter is here: as I write, the first flakes of snow are blowing through the air over green lawns - a rare treat in Oregon!
Winter used to be the season I dreaded: my beloved sun seems far away, and my productive hours are forcibly whittled down. This year I am more aware of what the animals are doing, and I'm allowing myself to give in a little bit to the pull towards hibernation/slowing down. What would happen if we could all allow ourselves more time to recoup in the winter months? I myself could use a bit of distance to let things sink in. I'll let you know how it goes!

And now my gift: a holiday card that you can print out and send or share via email. Please enjoy! Links to the files are at the bottom - hit the "instructions" button if you have any further questions.
In case you are super on top of things and have already sent out your Christmas cards, you can also print this on heavy card stock, poke a hole on top, and hang it in your tree/on your Festivus Pole!

My "newsletter" is an avenue for gifting my art on a regular basis, in an effort to enhance every day lives by making hand-made art a more integral part of them. The point is to enjoy the art, learn about appreciating art, and use the art to brighten others people's days. Thank you for being a part of it!
