Time for a Holiday Vaca

Happy holidays everyone! Now I'm hoping, hoping, that you're all relaxing under a snuggley blanket with a loved one/fluffy pet, hot chocolate, with your favorite TV show/book/movie/music/whatever makes you happy, and taking that sigh of relief to realize that life is good. I'm getting ready to do that soon! Betsy is already in Virginia celebrating her Aunt-ness, Will and Amory will be heading to the east coast soon as well, and Gingham.. well.. you know her: Always on a vacation.


We've been having the most exciting & busy holiday season and we have YOU to thank for that. We can't thank you enough for your love and support and we can't wait to see you all in the new year. In the mean time, the b&i blog will be taking a short break  for Christmas and New years! Like I said, we all need to do some relaxing too. Hands and fingers get tired after making too much jewelry and writing so many blog posts! But don't worry sweet friends, we will be back on January 2nd! Also, be sure to keep an eye out, you might find some surprise pop-up posts from Betsy over the next couple weeks. Maybe about her new niece? Maybe. We shall see. ;)

And of course, Gingham will miss you all and wanted to say goodbye:

Hope you all have a marvelous holiday break. May you spend time with the ones you cherish, get lots of lovely presents, and be thankful for our time on this earth--which, if I'm not mistaken did not end today! Woot woot!! (Sorry Mayans)

Ta-ta for now, everyone. Merry Christmas, happy New Year, and see you soon!


Barrie and the entire betsy & iya team
