(Concord, Ma): Millbrook Farms was preparing to shut down—road construction on their road made business plunge by 90%. Community members hit social media last weekend and in 6 days they’ve made more than they regularly make a whole season! They had 25 cars lined down the street; people intentionally overpaying for their trees. Merry Christmas to the Giurleo family of Millbrook Farms! 📸: Suzanne Kreiter

Yesterday I went to the local women’s Christmas craft fair to support the local crafters. Dressed in the mittens I bought last year I was thinking of the maker, would I ever see her again? And there she was! My favorite lady was still alive knitting, now aged 97. This year I bought mittens to my daughters from her. This pair is one of them. #supportlocal#supportcrafters#knitted#stickat#neulottu#käsityö#handmade

So I realised around 4pm that it’s 3 years since I launched The Wholeness Hub! My blog turned 3 today 🎉
I’ve been a bit absent on there this year, my focus has more been here on this platform. It’s crazy what can happen in 12 months, what a bloody year! It’s been a massive year of growth, change and discovery - a lot of which has been done offline and I haven’t been ready to share or know what to say if I’m honest. I have learnt so much since I launched, including that not everyone is going to like what you do and that’s okay. No matter how you say or write something - someone will always interpret it in a way that wasn’t intended. And that the wholeness hub is not just a creative outlet for me anymore, it’s more than that! It’s a community of pretty epic women and I couldn’t be prouder - I’m pretty happy with the direction we are heading in!
This year we also had a refresh to respark my creativity from the absolutely wonderful and talented @madelinetiarnedesign which is extremely cool if you haven’t seen it yet! I also started a mailing list (took me a while) and I did my first paid blog post 🙉 (pinch me moment). 3 years, I can’t quite get my head around it! If you’d told 18 year old me what this would be 3 years later I wouldn’t have believed her! I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has been here for the last 3 years. To the companies and brands that have trusted me with their products to try and review and for the opportunities to collaborate. To my family and friends for supporting this sometimes a bit out there and different platform, for proofreading and always being honest if something I’ve said doesn’t quite sit right.
And to YOU! Thank for you being here, for supporting me, for reading the blog! For answering polls, for your messages and love! It’s still scary every now and again, but I am so grateful for you!
I couldn’t be more excited to be going into this new year and new decade, I have a feeling it’s going to be the best yet! We are only just getting started!
P.S if you haven’t signed up to my mailing list, you’re going to want to because I have an exciting offer in there tomorrow night 🙊

THE CRAVE CRUNCH! 🍫
We often get asked what exactly the Crave Crunch is and here it is... It’s our classic brioche doughnut pumped with a vanilla bean pastry cream (made with real vanilla bean of course) + our decadent chocolate glaze + crispy cereal pearls! It’s our take on a Boston Cream... but better 😏
Have you had one?! Treat yourself!
We LOVE to support fellow locals, that’s why we got our real tree from the lovely @quick_turnover_xmas_trees on Southampton Road. They knew exactly which one would be perfect for Lady Caboose to perch upon and watch the festivities unfold over the next few weeks!

Here's the thinking behind my Santa and R👀dolf Christmas card.
I loved the Christmas nursery rhyme 'Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer' and the relationship between he and Father Christmas. I wanted to amusingly depict the blanket nature of snow in a 2-dimensional illustration and link the two characters by their eyes and noses and have them looking straight at you from their static position...caught in the moment...and we know they'll shake off the snow and get on with their busy work. 😊
Keeping the graphic simple was my plan so to emphasise the clean snow separation between the ground and the sky there had to be a horizontal line. I love ❤️ the horizontal line. The black, white and red theme has run through my Christmas card designs for a decades. It's a classic.
I am based in Ipswich and happy to post packs of 5 or 10 to you within the UK at no extra cost. They are not wrapped in plastic. 💚 #handdesigned #buylocal #freelancedesigner #handdrawn #santaandrudolph #spreadsomejoyatchristmas #supportlocal #agiftinitself
