a quote for the new year

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.  You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever."

-Neil Gaiman

making the most out of christmas

I think holiday shopping can be arduous.  Overwhelmed by the list of presents to be purchased, I rush and rush to get everything done.  Whether it's clicking on "buy now" buttons or whipping through crowded stores, I'm not enjoying myself.

Today, I'm doing things differently.  I'm going to get my hands dirty and turn on some music and make presents with my six month old son.  Stay tuned to see our holiday ornaments made with love for family and friends.
