Year end gratitude and news

by Gina

We will be taking some time off over the coming weeks.  We will be closed Sunday, December 23rd through Wednesday, December 26th, as well as Tuesday, January 1st and Wednesday, January 2nd.  We wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday time and a joyful start to the new year.  We have some really fun things planned for 2013, including some Flickr pool contests.  Stay tuned for more details, but in the meantime, be sure to start snapping photos of your projects and uploading them to the Bolt Neighborhood Flickr pool!

One of the little things we get to do on the side, that we all take a lot of joy and pride in, is donations.  We are only able to do so because of the support we get from each of you and we are so grateful for that.  Thank you for keeping us going, and letting us in on your creative endeavors.

Here’s a list of all of the wonderful organizations we were able to make donations to with your help!
