So much to do in so little time.
I have started saving all the crafty things I didn't get around to this season.
What do you think?
Isn't he cute?
And these can be made for Valentine Day too.

I think these will be a hit at grandson #2 class next year.
So I will be adding these and many more to the
saved file.
Look for them next year....

Hail Hail the gangs all gone.....
Thank goodness all the hussle and bussle
of the season is over,
now it is time to relax.
So grab you sweetheart and curl up
on the sofa and watch a movie.
And don't forget to be thankful for what we have.

As today being Christmas Eves Eve,
I have to come to the realization that
I will not be completing everything before Christmas.Like a quilt I was working on for my daughter.

And do we really need cake AND pies.
We should be tired of all the sweets.
I am gearing up for the all day cooking tomorrow,
endless wrapping, household chores, and endless questions
like....when will Santa be here
are we going to get to open one gift tonight.
Merry Christmas!

As Christmas gets closer and closer,
I am going to try and get all the photo on the blog,
but there is just so much time in a day.
Barbara and I saw this tree on another blog,
and had to re create it.
I love this Bronze color.

Happy Birthday Jesus!

To my sweet loving husband,

Each year when Christmas rolls around, I make you a list. And you go out on Christmas eve eve and purchase just what is on the list. There is part of me that wants you to be creative and actually listen to me and know what I want without a list. But there again, I really do want these items. I try to make it MALE PROOF. ( not too complicated) These are items I want but will not buy them for myself. I have wives that come into the shop and puts back items and then Hubby came by and picks it up. At least you look for the items. I know some wives that don't get anything. This will never be a option. So enjoy your shopping, do the best you can, I will love em no matter what. And if you need more suggestions .......Cash is good.

There is a local park in our area, that lets people decorate
" In Memory" displays.
Or local business will decorate.
It has become a Christmas Tradition to take the boys to see the lights.
This snowman was made from metal. Cool!
Grandson #2 wanted to walk alittle, even thought it is designed to drive thur.
He had to stand all the decorations that had fallin from the wind.

So we took this opportunity to snap a few pictures.

Once wasn't enough, so we let the top down and went again.
Once more around the park, my good man!

Some of the decorations are outstanding!

This was our favorite.
Some more work went into this one.
I think it was hand painted.

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Just a few more photo from the decorating at the shop.
This week is really busy and next week I will finish up the
Christmas shopping.
Just a few more gift to get.
And then it will be Christmas!
Grandson #2 is so excited.
We went and saw the decorated park near our home last night.
He wanted to get out and walk, it was really cold and so I talked him into getting back in the car and we let the top down, cranked up the heat and bundled up.
He was happy and pawpaw wasn't freezing.

Next week will be the last week in a 10 week bible
study with this women.
Beth Moore
Beloved Disciples
If you get a chance to study with her,
I would suggest you run, not walk,
but run at the chance. I have learned so
much and am alittle sad it going to end.
Through her teaching my eyes have been opened to
many aspects that I have ignored for many years.
Her sense of humor and southern voice comforts me.
This had been a public service announcement.

quite day yesterday
don't you just love them.
set off a bug boom
in my bedroom
trying to get rid of the lady bugs.
oh my goodness.
if they are for good luck,
i am so lucky.
filled up the vacuum.
just in the bedroom, no where else.
I would like to get my hands on the crazy
person that set all them loose in
They were to help the crops.
But they are in my closets.
I have to vacuum everyday.
I hope the boom will help.
I don't like em......
Merry Christmas!

Hubby met me and we had dinner.
Tis the season.

Have you had the time to "NEST" this
Christmas Season?
I had a few hours yesterday,
in between church and play practice.
And I really enjoy it.
I watched a movie on Hallmark channel, covered a few branches with
sheet music, and I rearranged the buffet for Christmas.
A lovely day.

Had a great time at Jenni Bowlin
Vintage Christmas Sale.
Went on to the Gaylord for a
few photos.
June had never been on the inside.
It was really pretty.
Wish we had been able to see it at night.
Maybe next year.

If you have a old fan you won't be using for awhile,
just wire a wreath to it.
Makes it look festive.
Christmas parade tonight!
Bundle up and go enjoy it.
Cost nothing and it will
put you in the Christmas Spirit.

Over at Chris's blog she ask this question.

Dinner party for 10
You can invite anyone that has ever existed.
So God would have to be there, he wouldn't have to speak.
Just being in his presence would make me speechless.
Abraham Lincoln, and Malik.( my grandson)
He reads all he can on dear oh Abe, so he would enjoy meeting him.
My paw paw, Matt Wells. cause I miss him, so much.
My mother, she is still alive but I am sure she would love to see her
after 30 years.
My husband, is my rock. So I would like for him to be there to keep me
from making a
fool of myself.
And since Terry will be there for me. I would have to invite his dad.
He died 18 years ago.
And Jessica, my daughter loved her paw paw, so she would have
to be there to get a hug.
So that is 8...I have 2 more...
This is really hard.
And I am going to ask that Michael, a class mate
join us.
I do miss him.
Sorry I lost touch, when I should have been there.
And I would invite
Jesus to answer all my questions.
And it wouldn't really matter what we had to eat,
cause I am sure no one would be eating.

Oh Christmas Tree

Sales and got alot of stuff.
Told Barbara and she kelp her eyes open and

This morning the light came through my bed room window and woke me up! The coffee was ready, hubby was laying next to me, the dishes were still in the sink, the creamer was in the refrigerator, my favorite coffee cup was in the cabinet, there is slippers by my bed, clean clothes in the closet, food in the pantry, sea shell from my beach trips in bowls all over the house, there is books on the night stand, Televisions to watch, a computer to surf my many blogs, and Christmas gift wrapped and ready to go under the tree. Many of these things are here everyday. Many of these things I take for granted. But I am so grateful for each and every person that is in my house, for each coffee cup in my cabinet, food to eat, clothes to wear, trips we take, everything we have. I hope you take a few minutes this week to thank God for everything you have. Because without him, we would have nothing.

Just use the green bottle brush trees and but them in bleach and water. for just a few minutes...rinse and dry. Wha la ....white trees. Now just a lot of hot glue to get them into a star you like.....A lot of glue. And fan fold a few strips of paper and add a old Christmas ball or bead. and Yes. the hat is made from a Oatmeal box. So start eating...Oatmeal cookies, or add a little into the meatloaf... you will have a empty box in no time. Happy Monday!

It's a bottle tree! I have told you in a resent post that I bought 4 truck loads of bottles. Well I had to do something for Christmas with em. So here it is, it really looks better in person. Christmas is just around the corner and I am no where ready. I have bought a few gift, they are still in the trunk of my car and need to get em wrapped before Ky finds his race track. The Jubilee is over. Went easy this year, but I had 3 no shows. Questioning if it is really worth it any more. I will get you picture of what we made in a day or two. Have a good Monday.

They look like they are having alot of fun! This weekend is Silver Bella it is a Paper Arts & Mixed Media Event Omaha Nebraska . I dream to attend each year. I know they are having fun as I type. But I am home preparing for Jerri's Jingling Jubilee, which is my version of Silver Bella, kinda sorta, no not really.

We will complete 10 items for a whopping $30.00. Where else can you craft, fellowship and eat for $30.00. We will have so much fun. I believe this is our 4th year.

Any way it is Sunday and I only have 2 places left, so give me a call and I will set you a place at the table. Sunday at 2.

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

I have a whole file of things I want to do one day, items I want to create, or things that inspire me. Where this came from, I don't know. But it was in that file. And although I might put this on my car one day. I believe I could find my car in a parking lot filled with Christmas shoppers.

Today is the last Under Glass post.
These came out of Linda booth and I love em. Just the right amount of fluff to make them interesting. We have sold so many of these and I hope I have interested you into using that glass cake plate all year long. Drag it out, and put your grandmother change purse and glasses in it. Maybe a card she sent you or her favorite passage. It is all about remembering.
I am frantically planning for this weekend. It is time for Jerri's Jingling Jubilee. It is a annual crafting event I plan each year. You will create 10 different items for $30.00. It is alot of fun and great fellowship. Seems I have picked a bad weekend and still have places left. So if you are interested in joining me, just email.
Tomorrow or once day this week I will be starting Christmas in Dry Creek Post.
So stay Turned.

Grouping by color is today's post.
The items have nothing in common except color. But don't they look nice together.

I pronounce you man and wife, be good to each other.
These are hurricane globes, and I filled them with what I thought a bride and groom needed on that day...and what I had in the shop at the time. I hope everyone had a nice, safe Halloween. I know we did.
