Hello . . . I know I've been absent but things have been, well, BUSY. I know you all are feeling the same way. So I've decided to stop kidding myself that I'm going to be able to post anything worth reading over the next few weeks and CALL IT A YEAR.
But before I go I thought to share some of my ornaments and decorations with you:
This was my friend Dita's idea and I love it! What's really making me laugh is the inch of dust on top of my hutch! Once I saw this picture I got up this with the duster LOL. Keepin' it real over here!
We made some really cute little shadow box ornaments this year but of course I forgot to photograph most of them before I sent them out. Made from paper scraps, printed Victorian images and sayings, ribbon and jewelry box lids. Easy!
And yes, and this is the banner that I made! Congrats to Diane for guessing correctly first! Want to see what I sent her? Go here.
A sweet fairy Santa my Mom brought me from St. Michaels, Maryland. I love his little trumpet and pointy nose!
And now I'm off to finish the 80 million things I need to do before Christmas. I'll be back in the New Year better than ever! I have ideas for some swaps and tutorials and patterns that I hope you'll enjoy. And now my message to you:
*from an embroidered stocking I made for a swap . . will share more about that in 2009!
Enjoy your holidays however you celebrate!
