TODAY: Begins A Winter Slowdown

Winter Slowdown #24daysofpresence

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling the strain and stress of ‘the holiday hustle’. A recent move from my home of four years added to chronic pain management and family troubles has ensured nothing goes as smoothly as it should. With all the packing, unpacking, doctors, and the effects of the winter blues, it’s been hard to feel the magic and joy this holiday season. (All I want is to stay in bed and hide from the world!)

Well this week I realized that I need to make a conscious change and allow myself time for the things I need most: rest, healing, spending time with friends, and working on self-nourishing projects that I haven’t made time for (like working in my art journal, drawing, and crafting with friends). No more pushing through stress and pain to keep up with the busy-ness of the season. It’s time to join the Winter Slowdown hosted by Oh My! Handmade Goodness.

So we’re going to slow. things. down. for a couple of weeks…

Instead of our regular posts and social media-ing, we’ll be posting just once or twice a week now through December 31st. But don’t worry we’ll still be posting the results of our December DIY Challenge on the 29th and we’ll be back in January to show you all the things we’ve been up to.

We’d love for you to join us in spending time on the things that are really important. More time with family and friends, appreciating the things we have, and having fun.
