Hi all! So sorry, this post was meant to be made yesterday and I have totally been caught up in last minute Christmas things! I completely lost track of what day it was!! Before I get to my picks, I want to take a moment to let you all know that this will be our last post for 2022. We will be taking a short break through the first week in January so that our amazing team can spend time with family and friends for the holidays. I also want to thank you for all your support throughout this past year. This is a most amazing space, where creativity, inspiration, and love shine so bright! And finally, I want to thank the incredible ladies who make up the GSO team. We are all volunteers who simply have a love for this community and a desire to bring some added joy to it. Most of us have careers and families outside of this blog and it takes very special people to keep showing up with enthusiasm and taking the time to bring some added light and love in to our corner of the world. I hope you will join me in thanking them for their time and passion for this craft! Wishing you all happy holidays and a wonderful new year!
And now on to my picks! I hope you enjoy them!
