Happy Holidays!

It’s not quite the 25th, but it’ll be here before we know it. And, even though I’m writing this post early, if I know me (and by now, I’m familiar with my work) I’ll still be frantically making all the presents when this post goes live.

But, it’s been a rough year–full of fear, disgust, horror, loss, and so much more. But it’s also been a year of resilience, ferocity, strength, and love.  So, this holiday season, and this coming year, I’m wishing for so many things for all of you and those you care about. I’m wishing you all the love your hearts can hold, peace and contentment that settles around you like a warm blanket, so much laughter and smiling that your cheeks and stomach ache a little, good health, excellent healthcare coverage, safety, security, and acceptance.

I hope that no matter which holidays you celebrate, or even if you celebrate none, that your hearts are full and and happy and that all of your dreams come true.

Happy Holidays!

By the time this post goes live I will have attended four holiday parties.

It’s three days before the first party, and I am literally ready for none of them.

None.

Of.

Them.

*sigh*

Anyway, this is supposed to be a Happy Holidays post – not a Bron Whines About Not Having Her Shit Done post.

However, an honest holiday greeting from me would actually be:

MERRYCHRISTMASMUSTSEWANDKNITFASTERHAPPYNEWYEAR!

But, here’s another honest greeting:

No matter what you celebrate – even if you don’t celebrate – I wish you joy and peace. I wish you acceptance and love. I wish you understanding and kindness. I wish you compassion and abundance. I wish you laughter and comfort. I wish you a warm place to lay your head and good food in your belly. May this coming year see your goals being realized and your wishes come true. In fact, May this be your very best year, yet! 

And now, I’m heading back to my to be sewn pile. This is what it currently looks like. I think as I finish projects, I’ll add them to the post.

Be sure to check out the other bloggers’ greetings, too!

Boho Barbie’s Dream Yurt for yet another niece. Husband made the giant wooden frame and the cute little table, and I made the rugs, the pillow and the tent itself. I picked up the crystal ball on eBay.

All the nieces are very, very pleased. And the oldest niece (the one who got Boho Barbie’s Dream Yurt) announced that, “Aunt Bron won Christmas. Again.”

 

Check out the greetings from the other bloggers.
