Happy Holidays!

Happy Thanksgiving (US) to those of you celebrating today.

If you are curious about this annual tradition, check out Wikipedia for some interesting tidbits.

We are Thankful that this team exists and that people decide to spend time here with us so that we are able to get to know each other through chats, by seeing each others work, and by helping to promote each other. Getting to know each person through seeing their art is such a special glimpse.

Without having an Etsy shop and without having joined and participate in events on this team, we would not have this opportunity to know each other.

So Thank You to all of our team members for their participation.

Have a wonderful holiday season!
