handmade holidays

I am loving this class format to share my creative world with you.  I am so excited to be announcing my next class......handmade holidays!!!!  As I had mentioned before, I plan on sharing a ton with my terrific readers over this holiday season.  All this time I thought I liked fall best, but you know......I think my favorite season is actually winter!  I absolutely adore snow.  Ice is actually fun.  Scary at times, but fun.  I love the coziness of the season.  The icy cold air makes you feel so alive and then you can come in and grab a hot cocoa and put on warm jammies.  Baking is a winter staple.  Warm food soothes the soul.  And the magic.  Oh the magic.  It is such a comforting thing, winter.  And there's no bugs.  
Of course I will keep posting daily in November for my Thanks A Lot class.  Coming up with all these prompts is really fun......I hope I can find time to journal them all!  And listing the things I am thankful for each day has helped me tremendously in staying positive.  It is such a great practice.  I think it might just inspire me to keep a simple notebook in my bedside table for this daily thanks only.  No art journaling.  Nothing fancy.  Just words.  Something I can read through when I have a rough day.  In Handmade Holidays I won't post as much journal prompts (though I will share my Christmas journal) ... because I want to focus more on food and gifts.  Oooh, I can't wait!!!!!
.....Homemade Holiday buttons will go up in my sidebar soon.  Please grab one for your blog so you can tell all your readers what you're up to!!  How excited are you all for the holidays??!
