As we sit here, thinking about the holidays, we bring you a yearbook of sorts.
Here are the people who have made the things we’re offering in the MDK Holiday Shop this year. You can’t believe how talented these people are—creative, fast thinking, helpful when we screw something up, quick to send us more when we need it.
Here’s our wish for you all: May all your holiday naps be just right, and we hope you all get to put your feet up for a while and rest on your laurels. Thanks for a wonderful year!
