round about: kindness elves & snowflake runners

by mari

This week's top links include contemporary christmas trees, DIY snowflake table runner, Natural present wrapping, kindness elves, DIY upcycled dollhouse, and Holiday cookie roundup.

This week, I have but one goal: get all the important things done so that I can take a vacation. As a freelance designer and blogger, it hit me the other day that I never take one, ever! So that’s it, my master plan this Christmas is to give myself a gift that only I can: the gift of time. If all goes well, I should have all major work done or off my plate for the entire second half of December. I plan to knit, read books, meditate, play the piano, and just focus on the small stuff. Oh, and I suppose I’ll celebrate Christmas with my family! But just looking forward to a time without commitments has me in a much cheerier mood already. So I have to ask, what can you stop until the New Year? Can you put some of the noise of life on pause and slow down for the Holidays? I really think it will do wonders for all of us!
