Happy Holidays! With the holidays comes worries and fretting as we run here, there, and everywhere, but now is a time for celebrations. Celebrating our homes, our hopes, and our heritage.
What better way to get into the holiday spirit than to share with others the gifts of memories? You can sign your friends or family up for classes including Yoga, Violin Lessons, Art Lessons, and more. You can join a friend and encourage them on their journey to make beautiful art by attending the art or photography guild. You could help someone discover links to their past with history or genealogy. You could write a memoir or a novel with the writers guild. You could create an heirloom for your family with the quilt guild or learn how to take of yourself better with the homestead guild.
