This is my favorite time of year.....everything is so beautiful and everyone is in such a wonderful spirit.....I took some time away from the Studio to head to one of my favorite places in December...New York City.....If you ever need inspiration you will find it here.....so much hustle and bustle and so much beauty all around...and talk about art.....no wonder it is the hub for all things creative....you can't help but draw energy from everything around you here.....

Everything was decorated and we shared some great laughs and we must have walked till we could barely walk no more....pure fun and pure inspiration.....

I enjoy NY too, but I am always glad to go back to a quieter pace of life... and less trash everywhere too! Looks like you guys saw a lot of pretty stuff! I love the decorations and the fiber art pieces (it takes a lot to impress me when I see fiber art too!)
