Winter Solace

While the kids were sleding I captured a shot of what was around me. It is the time of year to look at what is right in front of us and not to take anything for granted.

ATC trade

I received this trade from Annica Lindsten of Sweden the day before Christmas. What a wonderful gift. Check out Annica's blog for all her wonderful work.
Even the packaging was festive.

Buy Handmade

As part of the second annual Salem Open Studios, Feed Your Head will be hosting a Boston Handmade Trunk Show on Saturday, December 8, from 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday, December 9, from 10 am to 5 pm.

The Etsy Boston group, Boston Handmade, is a gathering of artists and designers who support one another in the pursuit of creativity made by hand. All members of Boston Handmade are registered sellers on, an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade, and are locally based in Massachusetts.

The Boston Handmade Trunk Show will offer a unique experience for shoppers to support local artists, designers, and business while getting a leg up on holiday shopping and enjoying light refreshments. Instead of an impersonal shopping trip to the mall to buy mass-produced goods, shoppers will be able to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience discovering unique handmade goods from art to jewelry to paper goods to accessories while getting the opportunity to meet and talk with the artists behind the creations.

Participating artisans are as follows:

Dawn Wilson

Amy Olson

Jaye Frisina

Allison Fraske

Jessica Burko

PAYING IT FORWARD.... is a great concept that has been around for a while. So fasinated by the concept I rented the movie . It brings me back to Sprinkles (the zine) days and makes me want to revisit the concept and way of life. I found this pledge and wanted to try it. How fun hope you join the movement.

Paying it forward, a la Dale Ann.

I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 Bloggers who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange.
I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week… LOL… but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise!
The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
