IMHO the best part of having holidays here on the coast is that we’re not inundated with commercial pressures for celebrating…we still feel like part of the main stream when we make our cards and gifts at home. Our Christmas parties revolve around music, local food and show and tell, with a fair amount of wine, beer or mead.
The during the last couple of weeks, the wind has been whipping around and we’ve been kept indoors with ice storms which is just fine with me…no superfluous driving! We’re making lots of crock pot dinners that simmer all day long freeing us to play more and still come in for a warm meal. While Steve’s been working with his guys on the new hiking trails in between storms, Alice and I have been spending a majority of our time in the studio weaving on the looms and printing holiday cards.
If you haven’t treated yourself to a sheet of linoleum and a couple of pots of paint…you haven’t been having enough fun!
Would you like to receive one of our hand printed cards? Leave a comment below before December 19th and we’ll send you a greeting from Maine…with all our love and ink smudges!
