Some Christmas Inspiration

If you're anything like me, then you are probably still trying to finish up some last minute crafting and/or shopping. I wanted to take a minute to share some pictures of Christmas projects that have inspired me. They are definitely on my "To Do" list for next year.

This project can be found here at

I absolutely *adore* this vintage ornament wreath created by Whitney Smith. Isn't it lovely?

I think that I will make some table decorations similar to these for my shop next year. You can find these at Felt-o-rama.

I might even try these yummy little gingerbread houses by Not Martha. Maybe. ;)

May your dreams be filled with sugar plums and your home be filled with joy.

*holiday hugs*

Look at that face...

...And, yes, he is mischievous. These are some pics that we took in mid-November. Gotta love the blue raspberry ring pop! Whatever works, right? ;)

Somebody pinch me!

I must be dreaming. But, if I am, please don't wake me up!

It has been an absolutely incredible few days! First, I received an e-mail regarding a few of my layouts that I have in my Flickr account. (I'll post more about that a little later. It's so exciting!) Then, I had a wonderful time at my knitting class with Rhonda at Ewe-Nique Knit. She was so patient, walking me through each stitch step-by-step. The class was supposed to be from 5:30-6:30. We were chatting away and completely lost track of time. It wasn't until Tobi called the store looking for me that we realized it was 7:30! Thanks again, Rhonda, for patiently sharing your knowledge with me! =) After class, I met Tob & Jer at Chili's for dinner. (We missed you, Keish!) Our original plan was to go out to dinner and then go to see New Moon again. Linway's shows were at 6 & 7:30. Definitely missed those. Elkhart had a show at 9:30, so we decided to catch that one. We ate our dinner and chatted for a while. We checked the time as we were getting ready to leave, and it was already 9:45! (Are you starting to see a theme?) Needless to say, we missed that show, too. The best laid plans, right? So, we got some coffee and went back to Tob's. She recently bought a tool that you can use to make custom brads/buttons. We played with that for a while. Jer decided to call it a night and headed home. Tob and I checked out some really cool imported Japanese fabric on Etsy for a while. Again, then next thing we knew, it was 2:00! Holy crow!! Today, I got some more news regarding my Flickr layouts. I am just bursting at the seams with excitement and can't wait to share it with you! (Once I get the okay, I'll make another post about that. I promise.) As if all of that wasn't enough, I had 2 more Etsy sales tonight!

I can't wait to see what else the weekend has in store! =)
