"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness.  I hope you read some good books, and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't
forget to make some art---or write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can.
And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."
 Neil Gaiman

What a beautiful creative environment you have created. The paper balls are wabi sabi; the hanging ornaments are unique and the vignettes pull me right in to look at each detail. Merry Christmas Donna!
