Lost in an Enchanted Forest

Christine Curavo

All of a sudden, adult coloring books are all the rage. Every time I pick one of them up, I want to grab my coloring pencils and fill in the lines. It's a childhood thing.  I had actually forgotten all about how much I loved them until recently when I went to the SF Gift Show.  I tried to find coloring books for CAREBOX, but come to find out, everything I looked at was backordered for months.

Christine Curavo

I was noticing last night that there are so many holiday movies that just get a little too close to the heart.  And because they are movies that come around and around, they remind me of my parents in some way—well that’s good, and a little bad, because I am not shopping for them this year.
