Merry Christmas!

Whew! 2017 sure did go by fast!  Here we are....with four more shopping days to go!  My kids will both be home for Christmas!  Lots going on over here :)  We still have a few pieces of furniture for sale, so check out my sale page if you are looking for anything in particular!  We also do custom orders, so if you are looking for a change, lets talk!  

Christmas time is my favorite! (In my best Buddy the Elf voice!)  The music, the food, the decorations.  Its hard to pick just one, but if I had to, it would be the gifts.  Not receiving them, but giving them.  And not material things.  Things like time.  Helping a neighbor out.  Carrying someones groceries into their house for them.  Shoveling a sidewalk that you aren't required to shovel.  Volunteering at the local food bank.  Donating mittens and coats to the homeless in your area.  Inviting someone into your home, when they have no one to spend the holidays with. There are so many things that you can do to reach out and help someone.  The memory that someone will have after being helped, cared for or smiled at, far outweighs any material items you can buy.  

Thank you for your continued support of my business.  It means the world to me that I have been so well received into the Duluth community of makers!  Look for a few exciting changes to happen in 2018!  I can't wait to see what the new year holds, can you? 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Hopping Wren!
