with thanks…

Hello again, dear friends,

    I’m going to let the pictures tell the story of the past few weeks for the most part…a time of beauty and busy-ness…and rest, for Jasper at least. These are sweet but full days, filling orders, capturing November’s gifts. Sometimes that looks like tiny films to make into a longer film for my youtube channel, sometimes it looks like eight, jewel-like jars of green tomato chutney.

My days are about to get even more full as our Santa Fe family is coming to stay for a special week. We will honor Thanksgiving together and celebrate my dear father-in-law’s ninetieth birthday. I’ll still be working, in between all of the family together times and I wanted to encourage the ordering of Daybook things sooner rather than later, so I’ve created a special sale.

I almost never have sales because it is tricky enough to make a sort-of living with my quiet offerings and find my people (my women, really : ) who are likely also living quietly (or trying to)…out of the glare of the mainstream. But I thought of a way to do so that will be gentle on me and lovely for you. So…

From now until Wednesday at midnight (the 24th) if you buy something papery at my shop, I will give you a coupon code for 50% off any and all of my digital offerings. As well, you may use it for a 50% discount for the first month of a Wisteria & Sunshine membership. So it would be only $5 to join us as we continue our smoothing the way for the holidays and then step into the very comforting December I have planned.

The digital creations include the homeschooling and kitchen printable sets, e-card sets, the digital version of my homemaking journal-The Bower- some garlands and another delight or two. I hope the sale will bring you pleasure and something to look forward to. The other reason I wanted to offer this was to express my gratefulness for welcoming me into your inbox, your visits to my blog and the support and interest you’ve shown me and my work over the years.





P.S. If you’ve recently ordered from my shop and would like to receive the coupon, just drop me a line (replying to this missive is the simplest way) and I will gladly send it to you.

P.P.S. Please share this note with anyone you think would enjoy this offering. You may forward the email or use the handy share button at the end of this post if you are reading at my web-home.


a november note…

…with all that is new in my world. Well, in my shop to be exact. Tho’ I’ve also just published another film at youtube, with all the beauty that was late October here. It is my favorite film yet, with a bit more of me, slow-falling leaves and all the gorgeous color of October. I hope you will go and see it and enjoy ten minutes or so of peace…

After months of designing, my shop is now filled with all of the Daybook ingredients for 2022 (with the Winter booklets beginning on Dec. 1st.) There is also the Jan-Dec 2022 calendar, and a new undated booklet. I am calling this the “wild” undated weeks because it has more variety with the weekly layouts and is decorated with wildflowers. A design like this was calling to me because variety truly is the spice of life, my quiet life anyway. And there are blank pages between each weekly spread to keep everything for the week together and tidy. I am loving using it.

All of the other Diaries and Days and sets of each are there now, as well. All ready to companion you peacefully through your days. There will be some printable calendars coming soon, and I hope, a digital version of the Daybook (sort of!) …

I am thinking about creating a December email offering with simple loveliness…a quotation…a passage…a pretty picture or photo. Do let me know if you would be interested. Otherwise, I am trying to keep work and life as pared down…yet rich…as possible. All the better to keep watching and cherishing the turning of the year, tending home and hearth, reading and sipping cups of tea, watching the Great British Baking Show and loving our dear ones.

Much love,
