The most magical part of living huge chunks of life online in the past year has been getting connected to the artists, makers, creatives, dreamers, and doers in far away lands.
My lovely friend, Gina of willowday, is all of the above and she lives in a far away dream land between the city and the sea in Sweden. Gina's feed swept me off my feet last December when it transformed into a winter wonderland of 'just right' Scandinavian splendor for her annual 24 Day Creative Collective holiday series. Snippets of Swedish countryside, rustic slices of panaforte and gingerbread, swaths of pine draped just so. Flickering candles and white against wood, against pine needle green, against deep, chalky black, all bathed in a moody nordic glow. It's a world that whispers magic and rich tradition that simply must be experienced.
So it was not even a question when she asked if I would like to contribute to the kids MAKE portion of this year's collective. It was an honor.
