Happy Holidays

As promised, I said I would share my holiday card this week and I figured Christmas Eve was as good a day as ever. Cards have been hitting mailboxes…packages on the hand have not, but I’m being patient and knowing they will get there eventually. I also have a Dana’s Edit up on the MDK site too for your reading pleasure.

Holiday 2020

You saw my sweater and Kendell and Jellybean’s sweaters the other day, but here we all are together. I like to coordinate but not completely match, it helps to add a little interest in pictures. added bonus, the dark teal on our kitchen walls compliments the color palette I chose too.

I also used the Kwanzaa stamps from the US Postal Service because they were designed by my friend Andrea Pippins and I thought this might be the coolest thing ever.

Holiday 2020

2020 has definitely been a year, so I am going to take my down time to really try to fill my tank back up before the semester begins. I’ll be back to posting in a week or so because I definitely plan on just knitting. If you celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas to you. If you don’t, I wish you peace and love over this holiday season.

Stay safe, wash your hands and wear a mask! See you in the new year!
