Wow. What a crazy year. Seems like every morning I check the news feed and I learn about a natural disaster happening, a crazy person driving into a street of people, or some fundamental right taken away from me. It’s easy to be down and discouraged. The one thing that helps me feel hopeful and back on my feet is to remember about the Magical: the awe, the serendipity, the divine and imaginative. Here’s a big dose for you this holiday season of the Magic that is out there folks all over that are designing up the Magical.
The Holiday Windows in New York City bring to life magical desinations. Check them out here.

I wish the mall was a real mall I would be making lots of money! Ha ha ha, sigh. But in the meantime until that becomes a magical reality, for 2018 my goal will be to put the Idea Emporium Activity Book into form, now that it’s complete thanks to all of you who have cheered me on and interacted with the posts and prompts, etc. May your holidays be bright, love-filled, and of course, Magical.
