January 19th Touchstones: What’s Your Word?

Many of us choose a word which serves as a guide as we embark upon the journey into the New Year. Even if you have never done this before, this event offers a colorful approach to this practice. We’ll create a beautiful background for your chosen word or words, then preserve them under glass, creating keepsake touchstones to cherish for years to come.
