[Happy Anniversary to my Folks!]

Hi friends! Happy Holidays. Hope you've been able to relax and make shapes in the snow.

I have to say, I was very lucky this holiday. Among the incredibly generous gifts that my husband gave me is a letterpress course that I'll be taking at Snap and Tumble this month. I can't wait! What should I make?
I took a little break from making things for a few days, but that break will need to end soon. Here are some little kitchen linens I made as a gift for friends, hand embroidered with xx's and oo's.

I may make a few of these and sell them in my shop soon.

Oh, and I almost forgot! I've got a few items featured in the latest issue of Wedding Bells. Our wedding is featured in the issue as well. A special thanks to Roseanne Dela Rosa for her creativity and support!

Happy almost new years, everyone!

It's nice to be part of something.

I'm pretty chuffed to have my little holiday cards included in Fieldguided's Shop Local Gift Guide. Thank you to Erica, who took the beautiful photo and made the suggestion.

If you like them, you can pick some up at the wonderful Coriander Girl in Parkdale.

Holiday shopping today. And then I'm going to make these. Mmmmm.

Poor Diana.

I've been spending a bit of time with the photos I took during our honeymoon. I didn't realize it, but I guess my trusty Diana suffered some sort of a severe bumping and so all of my photos basically stank. It's no fun getting a bunch of stinky photos back from your honeymoon, trust me. Anyway, these are the best of the bunch.

We've been gearing up for the holidays here. We had some lovely guests stay with us last weekend, which always makes for a great opportunity to eat well. We visited Torito and finally had the courage to try their Tongue & Cheek dish. While I didn't love the tongue, the braised cheek was delicious. Have you been there? You should totally go.

Many exciting things happening lately, I'll post about them soon...
