Hi everyone,

I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are enjoying the lull between Christmas and New Years! It can be a challenging time—navigating family dynamics, missing those we have lost, feeling caught somewhere between the old year and the new. But it can also be full of warmth, coziness, togetherness, and twinkling lights. It's a much-needed break from routines and responsibilities, allowing a wider view of our lives and work in the world to come into focus.

At Klum House, we are embracing this time of rest and reflection, trusting that important work happens in these moments of stillness, not just in the rat race of daily to-do lists. As highly-motivated makers, movers, and shakers, stillness doesn't always come easy. But we all need to step back, recharge, and recalibrate our inner compass every once in a while.

Next week, the Klum House crew is taking a little retreat. We'll be looking back at the past year, celebrating what we've accomplished as individuals, as a team, and as a business. We'll also spend time dreaming about the future—new projects, new workshops, new products, and exciting new endeavors for the Klum House brand. If you have a few moments, we'd love to hear from you, our maker community, about what you'd like to see more of in the coming year. We'd really appreciate it if you'd complete this short survey. (There's a 10% off discount code at the end!)

What about you? How are you spending the final days of 2018? What do you hope to take with you into 2019 and what would you rather leave behind? In the words of the amazing writer and activist Rachel Cargle, I hope this "is a year where the courage and the creativity and the power and the possibility that's been resting in your bones shakes loose and emerges as your new skin. I hope you wear it well, all year long."
