Hello and hello!

There are so many things to be thankful for, family, friends near and far. I'm especially grateful to everyone that bought my new paper toy book last month. The Toymaker's Workshop made it all the way up to number 585 on the bestseller list. Pretty exciting stuff. Thank you so much!

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Where ever you are in the world, I hope that this message finds you warm, health and surrounded by all good things.

Best thoughts,
