‘Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly Merry Christmas’ – Peg Bracken

I absolutely love the Holidays. Shortly after Halloween the Christmas music is on, I’m putting up our outdoor lights and planning our Holiday feast. I love the magic, creating lovely décor and gifts, but mostly it's the gathering together of family and friends to celebrate is what I look forward to the most. We have many family traditions, one of which is creating and making things together. Whether it’s handmade gifts, baked goodies, a wreath or items to be sold at the school craft fair, we love gathering together to make something special to give to others and share in the spirit of the Holidays. We hope that you are just as excited about the Holidays as we are, but if you’re not, we’ve got more than a few events & workshops to get you inspired to create. We continue to expand our offering of workshops and pop-up shops and have so much more in store. We are truly inspired by the many creative people we are surrounded by and have the pleasure of collaborating with.
