Holiday Crafting

In addition to my wreath, I made many gifts this year. I think my pièce de résistance was the 2008 calendar I designed and printed using my own photographs. I hope to sell a few of those and hopefully I will get some more images of it up soon.

If you would like to purchase an authentic hand-bound calendar, I am asking $10 plus shipping (U.S. only). I can customize it to include a few of your favorite photos from my Flickr! account, or I have a general flower template set up. Just email me and let me know what you'd like.

I also put together some hearty soup recipes for my girlfriends who celebrated Yule this year. I know that gifts aren't a part of Yule necessarily, but since it was our preparation for the holidays and coming new year, I felt it was appropriate. For anyone who isn't familiar with Yule, it is another name for the Winter Solstice celebration; the longest night of the year, the rebirth of the sun, and a time for cleansing, renewal and creative energy. It is a natural new year celebration.

P.S. Pictures to come... the connection is sloooow tonight!
