Christmas Pillows and Matching Mugs

Volume 16 Issue 12, December 2019

What's New in December?

Blue Morning Expressions is on the last week of the annual countdown to Christmas featuring all handmade gift ideas, and what a year it has been! We have been delighted to share some fantastic knitwear from Andrea Designs, some fun and funky jewelry from both Shadow Dog Design and Pretty Gonzo. The Singing Beader has delighted us with her music themed jewelry and RSS Designs in Fiber has showcased some of her fantastic crochet work.

In addition to our countdowns, we have been getting ready to head into winter as best we can do down here in Florida. That means spending time with the windows open and enjoying fairly cool and dry weather. It also means ordering the annual basket of oranges to send home to family and friends.

The yard has been covered with what we call Florida snow, which is really a ground cover weed more commonly known as Mexican clover. The benefit of the clover is that the bees love it, so we leave it alone and mourn the loss of grass.
Taking stock and getting ready to head into 2020. Here is to many happy days ahead and may the wind be at our back.

What’s New

Mugs: It isn’t Christmas without a Christmas mug or two.

Pillows: It’s Christmas time in the design studio Many Christmas pillows have been created.

Things to Look Forward To:

New Products:

Leggings: My supplier has added a great legging line, so I have been experimenting with design and element placement.
