Now that Thanksgiving is over and I'm well past my turkey coma, I don't mind the endless Christmas music on the radio anymore-- I'm actually enjoying it! But what I'm not enjoying is the battle for a parking space at my local mall. Ahh, this the season.
Thank heaven for blogger extraordinaire, Attila The Mom, and her crew of very talented folks who make the gorgeous fabric ornaments shown above. Those beauties are all hand made and so beautiful that I own several of them already-- And I never had to leave the comfort of home to get them. Isn't online shopping great?
Some of you may recall that Attila provided one of these gems as a giveaway for me last year, and now I'm totally in the Christmas spirit because she's offering another one this year!
What makes these ornaments so special and why I'm happy to participate in this giveaway is because of the significance of how these ornaments and the company, Highland Roses Design, came to be. It all started with Attila's family...
Highland Roses Design Collaborative Craft Studio is a privately-funded project that provides individuals who live with disabilities and/or mental illnesses as well as their family caregivers an opportunity to step towards independence through the sale of our own arts and crafts creations. They accept no grants or government funding, and are working to become self-sustaining through our own endeavors.
Every step of this undertaking is a collaborative effort---from design to creation. Each distinctive ornament is produced by several sets of hands---all working together to create something special! For more info or to place an order CLICK HERE.
I can't tell you how blown away I was when I received my first ornament from this hardworking group of crafters. They are beautiful-- Not just the ornaments, but the hands and hearts that made them. Here's YOUR chance to own one too.
