and the holiday prep begins

Got the first nine hand stamped holiday cards written, addressed and ready to go.

Made three tiny gifts the other night just after organizing my craft room.

I’m trying to be realistic about the holidays with a baby and all. I’m planning to send out fewer cards (through it’s hard; there are so many people I want to connect with and wish well). I have some mass produced (by hand at home) gifts that shouldn’t take too long to make and can be given out to all. Then there are the few people for whom I will hand select gifts. Oh yeah, and then there’s stockings.

This year I also want to celebrate the solstice in a meaningful way with other people. It feels really important to me. The Earth and it’s natural cycles are what I want to tie my celebrations to.  ***  This year I think this manifestation may be made a reality. I hope so.
