This is the very first Holiday season in 14 years where I’m not rushing to finish a catalog last minute! The Talisman Designs catalog is done, I’m working on research and new designs concepts for 2018. I feel like I have time to take a deep breath, exhale and focus on my family! So, when I have time, I love to create magical dreamscapes for my family to experience. During the Holiday season I love to bring the magical wintery wonderland inside.
