Another Christmas, another linocut. This year we were rocked in November with a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes for my 6yo son. So life has been a whirlwind of carb counting, finger pokes, and insulin injections. It felt right to note this in our theme this year, and let everyone know that it’s tough, but we have hope. We donated to JDRF and they’re doing some really great research, with a cure on the distant horizon.
So the theme this year was hope, incorporating a blue circle, an international symbol for type 1 diabetes. And snow and Christmas lights of course.
