Creating

Creating a new course called December EnLIGHTenment, which is free as a holiday gift to students and friends. I am teaching what I need to learn and that is feeling the joy and magic of the season every single day. It’s going to be a sweet and delightful 24 day journey!!

And of course there’s the quilting

Vision and Joy!

I worked a bit in my Vision book this week

ImageImage

Making art and writing are my two loves at the moment

i was thinking about the holidays, and sorting out stocking gifts

And I decided for certain to create a new online course for December, and it will be free ! It’s my gift to students and friends and it will ultimately be a gift to myself.  Like with the December scrapbook I wrote about last week, I look forward to enjoying the light of the season even though it’s a very busy time. Twenty four days of magic, inspiration, and connection that will increase our joy and bring a true sense of peace during the holiday season. Leave a comment if you are interested in learning more,  i’m writing up the description today!

Projects!

There’s a lot going on here. Well, Christmas is approaching, but the vision book is growing too.

Beginning with a glass of wine and a snack, I worked a bit on the vision book. Will this be the hub and I in a few years? 🙂

Gathering photos, pictures and such. Some to be used now, some later.

This weekend at the beach house has been designated for basting the quilt for Christmas. Starting-

And finished! Now for the hand quilting.

I have a new project: a December scrapbook. Every year I try hard to enjoy the days leading up to Christmas, but there are always so many things going on that I know I miss things. This year I am planning to make a scrapbook with a page for each day. I’ll take a photo and jot something down about the day-total experience! I’m prepping the book now so there’s no excuse when Dec 1 rolls around.

This is going to be good!

Going to bed early so I can see the eclipse at sunrise.
