December 1st Greetings + New Friends

Simple Christmas Tree Craftivity for Children at RainbowsWithinReach

We have arrived at the crowning glory! 
Behold, December. 

What emotions and feelings surface immediately at the thought? 
Panic or Peace?

My article today at PreK+K Sharing is an offering: finding balance in the beauty.
I have gathered up oodles of craft, music and kindness articles from our annals there for your inspiration.
I hope you have the time to hop over.

Now. Look who I met yesterday!

That's me being a little start struck in the presence of THE Deanna Jump, 
Deanna is the genuine queen of Teachers Pay Teachers and is the first to have surpassed the milestone of making a MILLION dollars of profit from her delightful products sold there.

She arrived in Orlando, fresh as a spring chick from a whirlwind of national TV appearances. 
[The woman is teeny-tiny petite. At my 5'5" I felt like a towering giant.] 
Deanna is all heart and a complete delight and I treasure every minute of our time together. 
Thank you Deanna. 

It was a whirlwind day of delight. Look who else was in the spotlight. 

SDE throws quite a party! 
I also was fortunate to meet THE Heidi of "Heidi's Songs" and we were able to plant the first seed toward collaboration and cross promotion for the future. 

AMAZING creative women. 
LUV LUV LUV getting to spend time in their presence. 

We continue our nomadic lifestyle and today is moving day. 
We are prepared to spend the next four months at Vero BEACH! 

I'm ready to have sand between my toes on a VERY regular basis. 
Happy December, friends.
