This has been a challenging year for so many, and for the world. For me craftster and swapping has been a constant that has brought me much joy. In this tiny way we are weaving threads of connection, support and love around the world. This helps me hold fast to the idea of a better future for all.

So this evening, at dusk, i made a drink, lit my Christmas Eve candle ( a tradition in Ireland, a candle in the window to welcome in the holy family-I'm not religious so for me, it's to welcome in all friends) I'm sitting quietly thinking of all you, my far flung friends, and raising a glass to bonds of friendship.

Won't you join me, raise your glass, your cup, your bottle. Let's celebrate our friendships here.


I would love a personal swap with yo
May the Ghost Squid be with you.

It's boxing day morning, and I just got in after working last night.  Sounds like there was some family drama so it may be a good thing I worked last night... but regardless, thank you, and I raise my coffee cup in return and wish you and all my other Craftster friends a healthy, happy new year, and comfort in our friendships here, and to continue in our ability to find comfort and inspiration in our and each other's creativity.
