I searched bookstore after bookstore trying to find a great Christmas craft book. Last year I finally found one worth talking/writing about.
Gooseberry Patch creators, Jo Anne and Vickie were neighbors back in 1984. Two moms just trying to find a way to do what they love while being able to stay home with their kids. After many conversations over the backyard fence Gooseberry Patch was born.
