Yesterday I took the long way, with an iced green tea and Helplessness Blues by Fleet Foxes (best music for a drive, ever) and took the winding roads along the beach to attend an open house for my friend's gorgeous etsy shop, Heart Box Studio.
Chrissy's book The Gift was in ArtPrize this year --it was so awesome that we got to see her in Grand Rapids last month.
We met a few years ago through our old church. She was known as the Grayson-whisperer. She taught his class and he'd crawl into her arms and stay there. She is ridiculously talented, and I happen to like her very, very much.
Today her home was filled with cookies and cupcakes and beautiful people and art.

So, I did a little Christmas shopping while I was at the open house, and also bought a couple more copies of The Gift. She graciously signed one for my niece & nephew for Christmas and I bought an extra one to give away to one of you.
I also purchased several of her beautiful cards and will certainly toss one or two in there with the book, as well as some other fun things. How about it?
Would be lovely if you'd...
