Lots of Holiday Cheer in the land of QDAD lately. My daily routine of designing in the morning over a cup of coffee before heading out to work was interrupted a couple of weeks ago and I've struggled to get back in the rhythm.

The member provided Sparker images were too great to skip so I played catch up. Seems like shades of Marsala are sneaking into the palette lately. My friend referred to the Pantone color of the year as "light raisin" which feels acurrate. 

Marsala Head to Toe 

Taking a selfie that includes your shoes is kinda nuts but they are Marsala and match!
It isn't often that I wear heels or a dress but my inlaws were in town and took us to Cafe Sparrow for a delicious dinner for hubbies birthday.  Housed the heart of Aptos Village in the town's original grocery store/post office.  They celebrated 25 years in business this year which is tough to do for small restaurants and is great to see.

Merry Christmas

We are spreading out our Christmas celebration beyond today and started a little early with Mateya opening her Hanna Andersson long johns.  The graphics are yoda in a Santa hat and Darth Vadar with antlers adorned with candy cane light sabers.  

She insisted on dressing herself and let me straighten up.  I'm not usually a trademark kind of gal but these were too fabulous to resist and the organic cotton so soft.   Plus, now she matched the ornament collection on the tree!
