Christmas is almost here.  Kids of all ages are waiting for the big night when Santa Claus makes their wishes and dreams come true.  We plan for it, we shop for it and before you know it . . .  it’s over.  Little do these angels know that wishes and dreams go far beyond toys, but we keep them young and innocent as long as we can.

I really look forward to the time between now and January 6th when the next Designers Circle will be published. Getting a few weeks off from my regular tasks and looking forward to spending time with my family is my best present.  As many of you know, my wish came true a few weeks ago, so I can spend the holidays with Jimmie and my family.  Prayers are the gifts that keep on giving, so thank you all for the our miracle. 

The holidays are all about being with family and friends, taking a break from our normal schedule and relaxing with a glass of wine and some chocolate. Doesn’t get better than that.

I want to take this opportunity to thank those who support Designers Circle. These past 11 years have been fun and one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had.  I’ve met hundreds of wonderful people, developed many new friendships and have been able to donate, with your help, to many, many charities. 

Wishing you a very Happy Holiday and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

See you all in 2020.
