A few weeks ago I was invited to journal for a week as a friend of Gudrun Sjoden, the Swedish designer whose art, home and clothing lines epitomize everything I love about design. Her art is infused with color, pattern, whimsy, beauty, ethnicity and a nod toward history and place.
Last week was a great week to journal. We were preparing for Christmas, I had a full and busy week at work, and it ended with our Wild Apple holiday party at Lake Champlain Chocolate in Burlington, Vermont. So a good week to write about! I’m a little sad to have a snowless Christmas here in Vermont, but we’re keeping the home fires burning, and good cheer nonetheless.
Wishing you some calm as you prepare for holidays and some light in your life on this shortest day of the year.
