How has Stephanie Distler's studio space changed over the years? She takes us on a visual tour of her studio in Johnsonburg in the PA Wilds, starting in 2016 until nowadays. It certainly looks a lot different now!
Despite the cold temperatures and long nights, winter gives us so many reasons to celebrate in the Pennsylvania Wilds. However you may be celebrating this season, we wish you and yours a very happy, healthy, joyous time!
The New Year is a time to feel hopeful about the upcoming 12 months. It’s a time to think about changes you might want to make or things you want to do. A New Year’s Resolution is an optimistic goal that helps you set the stage for the next year. Whatever you’re trying to accomplish in 2023, let the entrepreneurs in the PA Wilds help you accomplish those goals!
Abbi was born and raised in New Jersey, where most of her family still resides. Holiday traditions have been established in NJ, which puts Abbi on the road two days before Christmas Eve and has her returning back to the PA Wilds on Christmas Day in time for dinner. As much as she loves spending time with family and friends, it can be a little hectic to celebrate the peak of the season while on the road, so it helps to plan ahead and plan for surprises.
Freshly baked pie, handmade ornaments, twinkling lights, decorating the tree, wrapping the perfect gift for a loved one, and family- that’s what the holiday season means to me. The holiday season invokes many feelings: excitement for time spent with loved ones, and sadness for those who are no longer with me. As I navigate the season, I try not to sweat the small stuff and truly enjoy special holiday meals, mugs of hot chocolate, and snuggling up under my cozy handmade blanket (an amazing gift from a friend last year).

The mornings are foggy and the air is crisp. Leaves are changing color and covering the ground. The holiday season is upon us. Soon you’ll hear clattering and jingling along with the sound of hooves… Santa?! No silly, it’s not Christmas time yet. It’s the Headless Horseman, it’s Halloween Season!
