Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours.

We are delighted to be joining the lovely Gina of willowday + 24 spectacular creatives for the 5th annual Swedish Christmas Countdown Calendar. You might remember the pinecone angel ornament we made last year for the ‘Kids MAKE’ portion of the countdown. If you are on Instagram pop over to Gina’s account and give her a follow so that you don’t miss any of the shares! If you aren’t on Instagram you can catch up on all of the posts here. While you are on Gina’s site, definitely take a peek at her new children’s book, ABC Flower Safari! It is a GORGEOUS romp through the alphabet via the most exquisite animal-botanical illustrations.
When I was brainstorming ideas for my calendar contribution my mind kept wandering back to nature and our foraged wreaths of holidays past. I really wanted to make another one…but I also wanted to turn it up a notch. What if we could keep the same minimal, undone, organic feel BUT hang it from the ceiling like a chandelier?!
