Season’s Greetings 2019!

SMH Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Merry Christmas 2019

To all our clients, our homeowners, scouts, producers, photographers, suppliers and all the new customers and clients we have yet to meet – we wish you the greatest Festive season. Our wish for you is that you are surrounded by Love and Kindness and that regardless of what you believe in, you remember that this is a time of year when we need to celebrate our similarities rather than our differences.

We are so grateful for your ongoing support and for the friends we have made along the way. Thank you.

Be safe but also a little silly this season.

All our Love

Red, Sharleen, Liz and Yolanda
