Happy Holidays 2014!

It came without ribbons!
It came without tags! 
It came without packages, boxes or bags!...
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought,'doesn't come from a store. 
"Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more!"
- Dr. Seuss

There is a saying that goes, "Cold hands, warm heart." The holiday season has a certain magic that though the days get colder and the nights darker we are in our hearts the warmest and brightest at this time of the year. So from the bottom of our hearts, we wish you the merriest of holiday seasons this year.

Perchance you are looking for something to warm your heart (or another's) this winter, check out some of our tutorials, recipes, etc. below:

Trendy Travels: Shanghai

People call it the "Paris of the East" with its bright lights and unparalleled sophistication.
