Happy new year to you! Happy 2013! Two-thousand and twelve was a great (one of the best really!) year -marked by some big transitions for my family -one finishing school and one starting school. Both of these events allowed me to make some creative magic at Benzie. My customers have been nothing less than fabulous -and truly creative beings. I thank you!!! But there is one last Instagram flashback. The month of December. The month of Jesus's birthday...
2. Mermaid for my daughter and my niece! Pattern from Bit of Whimsy.
3. Giraffe for my son -pattern also from Bit of Whimsy. They have patterns great for the beginner -I feel a bit more confident to move up to the more complex!
4. Christmas card season!!!
5. Christmas tags -thanks to my 6 year old. Handwriting is just so sweet at this age!
6. And off to visit family -the best part of the holidays. This is the little town in Iowa I grew up in. Full of frosted, snowy trees. I wish you all a beautiful 2013!
