The holiday season brings with it a sense of anticipation. In keeping with that spirit, our gift guide will be released a little bit at a time. Each day additional pages will be posted until we get to the end. My goal is to inspire you and slow things down just a little. Inside are all kinds of gifts and all kinds of price points. Some ideas will be just what you need. Other ideas will be just that...ideas that get you thinking outside the box. Believing in the magic of the holidays is about understanding the true meaning of the season. Let the inspiration begin with the cover. Original artwork by Carolyn Hofstad (the sea in sea and jae).
