Happy Friday + Holidays!

Dear Friends of Poppytalk,

It's that time of year to slow down, hug our loved ones and mingle in the joy of the holiday season.  We are so thankful to you our readers and send peace and good tidings.  We hope you'll drop by after the holidays - we'll be here throughout the season, posts might be fewer, but we'll most definitely be popping in to say hi with things that inspire between now and New Years.  And if you're off-line until 2013 - we wish you a safe and memorable time.  Enjoy our free gift tags  designed by the lovely Emily McDowell.

We also wanted to give a shout out to all of our super-talented contributors at Poppytalk.  They have been so amazing this year, I just wanted to take a moment to thank them and to link to all of their lovely blogs. Check them out (links below)!
