On Monday, Teri Anderson shared her latest textiles with us.

Then, we tuned in to a special interview with New York-based pop artist PETRA, who debuted her official merch store earlier this week.

Afterward, Dani DiPirro (@positvelypresent) presented us with some holiday positivity.

On Wednesday, Two Classy Chics taught us how to paint a snowman in a snowy landscape on a seashell.

Then, we discussed the live Christmas tree trend among millennials.

On Friday, The Black Princess Diaries touched upon the struggles of working through the holidays with a few tips for overcoming a Scrooge-y vibe in the workplace.

After shining our artist spotlight on Natalie Lundeen, Sodexo gave us five tips for avoiding a gingerbread disaster.

On Saturday, The Savy Age taught us how to make snowman gift bags.

Last, but most certainly not least, we directed our artist spotlight towards Zeynep (@zeiince).

Going Forward

Going forward, we’ve got plenty of cheer still left to share, my dear… Oh, and “The Burgundy Zine #12: It’s Beginning to Look A Lot like Craftmas” is just five days away from release. Nbd, nbd.

Furthermore, exciting adventures await us in 2020, which you can read more about here.
