Merry Christmas, Canada!

We all know that the holiday season isn’t about getting presents. It’s about family, friends, hope and generosity. But the presents are pretty great!

This year some of our team members participated in a fun, cross-country Secret Santa exchange. Artists were paired up to trade small gifts from their shops in the spirit of giving. Here are some of the wonderful things that made their way around Canada:

From Blue Jeans Jewelry, to Karen's Rope Work, a wonderful handmade necklace.

From The Backyard Bear, to Wave Song, handpainted wildlife art.

From Frog Princess Designs, to Dark Ride, gorgeous handmade jewelry.

From Dark Ride to Butler Pottery,
a gorgeous handmade necklace.

From lepetitreve to Christine Sherriffs,
an adorable owl door tassel.

From Joanniel Creations to Little Bear’s Mom,
a delightful pair of handmade earrings.

From Batty’s Bath to Annabelle’s Art,
a delicious smelling handmade skin care set.

And last, but not least, the host of our Secret Santa exchange, The Backyard Bear,
received a wonderful selection of handmade body bars from soapstar.

From all of Oh Canada, to all of you - Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year!
