Home for the Holidays (and an off-topic interview)

First, we want to wish you and yours good cheer and positive vibes for the Holidays.  It's been an exciting year for us at Common Craft and it couldn't have happened without you.  Your links, your blog entries, your emails to friends all put a spotlight on our work that wouldn't have happened otherwise.  Maybe there is something to this social media thing after all.

Between now and the New Year, we'll be with families on separate coasts and generally unavailable. 

If you're looking for an off-topic diversion, we were interviewed for a podcast by Vann Black recently about our trip last year.  It focuses on travel planning and making lifestyle changes to support extended travel.
