Wrapping Up, Celebrating the Year & Making Snow Angels

Every weekday morning I invite you Behind the Scenes at my studio.

Today: I can’t believe how centreal Behind the Scenes has become in the studio! It makes me beam to know that creative hearts around the world are sitting down with me over tea, after dinner, first thing in the morning, right before bed. I love that we get this studio time together. And that’s why it’s been so hard to decide it’s time for the holidays, to wrap up for 2014 with lots of love and celebrations and the intention to meet you all again in the New Year!

May you close 2014 with celebration, may you be filled with a sense of wonder and joy.
May the new year bless you in ways you haven’t even imagined.
May the holidays wrap you in peace, love and joy.
