Here's what I've been up to!

A little bit o' this... a little bit o' that.... ornaments, necklaces, cupcakes... what's new?! ;)
I have been creating like crazy this weekend! I will definitely have to take some pictures to show and tell today!
I also received the most beautiful packages in the mail this week... Suzette and Melissa really spoiled me rotten with a gorgeous bracelet, and ornament! Thank you so much and I will get some snapshots up soon!
I am really feeling the Christmas spirit now (I'd better be, it's right around the corner!) and trying to stick to my handmade gift giving plan! It's a wonderful sense of the true spirit of the season~ give from the heart... and hand! :)

What do you think of these Christmas lights????

Wait, those are not Christmas lights... but, the glowing eyes of another one of our CATS!!! Surprise, surprise.... whatever will I do? Nothing is sacred in this house, our pets obviously, just LOVE getting into mischief way too often!!!! The tree was shaking and about to fall over, thank goodness it wasn't decorated yet, huh? It's like a playground in here...tinsel vomit, breakage, you name it!! UGH!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

HEY!!!!!!! Who put THAT decoration there?

Nacho is not part of our Christmas decor... she just thinks that she is! She wants to nibble on my icicle garland soooo bad, I can see it in her eyes! Oh, and she's not supposed to be on the table!

The colour of a dear friend...

My sweet Lorraine, I am truly blessed. Thank you for being you!

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas...

Oh, and another cupcake! :) I've been putting out Christmas, little by little this week. Yes, I know that it seems as though I am totally bypassing Thanksgiving ... I'm just adding holiday touches here and there. Okay, you want the truth? This weekend... look out! I have made the command decision to start celebrating early this year. I want the spirit of the season to last~~ Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye and nothing sounds more festive right now than sitting around a Thanksgiving table with carols softly playing in the background and our trees aglow. I hope to get most of the decorating done on Sunday... even though my tree "collection" has become quite large. :) When I'm finished making this place look like a winter wonderland, I'll be ready to focus more on creating. I would like to give some handmade Christmas gifts this year and I really should get a head~start on that because it's right around the corner...
Happy weekend!

Been busy... and cupcake crazy!

Magnets, ornaments, etc. I've been trying to get a few things done this morning. Soon, I'll be taking a break to have an early dinner out with Cory and Mom and Dad...
Awww, I was on a roll!!! :)
I'll get back to the studio later!

I've been feeling queasy for most of the day today. YUCK! Tried to sleep it off... didn't work. Ate a bagel, didn't help. Hanging in there but I'm just not feeling myself, pretty sure that it is stress. Maybe Cory and I need a vacation... HA! :)

I've been busy! That's a good thing!

I've been trying to stock the shelves at Cottage of the Seasons, but not fast enough! Poor Melissa and Karen are waiting VERY patiently for me provide some new Christmas inventory. Tonight was the Holiday Open House ( I should have already had a truckload of new goodies in the shop for this...) and we stopped by for a bit to visit...everything looked just beautiful! Trees, tasty treats and talk.... mmmm. Nice. The shop looked so festive and it was a real joy to see everyone! Thank you! And to Joey, thanks so much for my "faces" :)
I've been making paper flowers like a madwoman and have been trying to use them in some of my art. They look very sweet randomly stuck here and there. Sometimes, that's all a piece needs in that special spot! Yet another craze that I can chalk up as an addiction! HA!
I cannot get Christmas out of my head.... this is crazy. I am ready to decorate my house RIGHT NOW! Last Sunday, I took down all of the Halloween and wanted to leave the look of Fall around the porch...well, that didn't last long. I'm getting ready to create a winter wonderland around here! Hopefully, by this weekend it should look very different, fo~sho! I'm even going to try and get all of our trees up inside. Colette??? Where are you??? I NEED you!!! LOL Hugs!
I'll keep you posted!
