Last Minute Gifts {From the Shops of Uxbridge}

The clock is ticking and you still have a couple gifts to get. Maybe it's because you have an unexpected guest for dinner this year or you just haven't found the perfect thing for that special person in your life. Have no fear! We have a wide-range of gifts featured today from a gigantic gummy bear (the largest in the world!) to luxurious woven scarves made locally by Nancy Newman. Hope you feel inspired to make that last trek out there to finish off your list!

Stocking Stuffers {From the Shops of Uxbridge}

Even though Santa takes care of the kids stockings, mom and dad need to stuff the big socks for each other (at least that's how it works in our house!) so we've brought together a collection of things for the last minute shopper. (These also make great 'Secret Santa' gifts!)

We've Moved!

It's been a little while since the last blog post, but many exciting things are happening here at Take Root Creative. Firstly, we have re-located to Uxbridge, ON and are so excited to be settled in time for the holidays. Secondly, my home office is now a gorgeous serene place to work thanks to my amazing husband who spent his days off to install laminate, paint the walls and replace light fixtures. We are just doing the finishing touches and then I'll post photos of the before-and-after.

In the meantime, check out our moving announcements - inspired by a blog post from Oh So Beautiful Paper by the ladies from Antiquaria.
