A very Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Getting out for a hike on New Year's Day is one of my favorite ways to celebrate a new start in January. This year my husband and I explored the banks of a nearby river; the island in the distance is a nesting place for blue herons in warmer months. Sometimes I get a little down about the short days and bare winter landscape but then I feel more challenged to pull out my camera and look for beauty where it seems like there isn't any. It makes the discovery all the sweeter. Where's one place…

Today's project - continuing progress on this custom order. Can't wait to start on the pine boughs! What are you working on today?

The weekend is almost here! If you've been longing to take a break and refuel there are still some DIY embroidery kits left in my shop. The one featured here is great for a beginner. Plus my website features a number of how-to videos demonstrating everything from how to split embroidery floss to how to do each of the stitches featured in my kits. Visit www.bethcolletti.com to explore ways to slow down and savor more of life. --- Also I wanted to give you all a big thank you for your support…

So humbled about the positive feedback I'm getting on these new stitch kits. I've been so excited to create these for you and am already working through ideas for the new year! This cardinal has been a favorite for the season and would be a beautiful gift for someone who needs a reminder that God sprinkles simple joys and messages of hope all around us when we need it most. Visit bethcolletti.etsy.com or click the link in my profile to get one of the last two of these.

After you've said your holiday goodbyes and have headed back home to life-after-Christmas I'm curious what are the simple joys you embrace in the winter? Winter where I live is often cold and windy but without the snow to make things sparkly and beautiful. It's mostly just gray and bleak. To combat this dreariness I love to seek out simple joys. One of mine is enjoying the amazing combination of peanut butter and chocolate! Also sipping hot tea and watching the birds at my feeders. I'm…

"We cant hear the way life sings with purpose and beauty when busyness is the repetitive song we are choosing." @shellymillerwriter --- This week I've tried to deliberately slow down and be present with my family as we've taken time off for the holidays. What a challenge! Always I feel the pull to do more and be "productive" (even if it's just organizing my closet for the new year!!) I find it so hard to give myself over to rest instead of "catching up" on all my "shoulds". The word I'm…

It's only Tuesday but already the work week is feeling crazy busy over here. I'm trying to practice kindness and grace to myself when I feel busiest because it's all too easy to do just the opposite. This week kindness looks like NOT eating lunch in front of my computer and taking a quick walk on my break while the sun shines. What's one small way you are going to show kindness to yourself this week?
