It's been awhile since my last blog post! I've been a busy gal--I decided the only way I had any hope of catching up this year and getting things done was to just concentrate on my Christmas list for awhile. My ornaments are almost all painted. Here's a picture of some of them- I'll finally be able to start mailing next week.
I also make ornaments for my Mom and my siblings with pictures of my nieces and nephews on them. Here is one- I've blurred the face a bit since this is my niece and I did not ask permission to use her face on the internet. I have 6 nieces and nephews- so I paint 12 of these :) I love painting these ornaments so much- something about their little faces on the ornament just makes me smile.
I've been working on some homemade gifts for family and friends- I can't really show any of them because I don't want to spoil the surprise, but my hands have been flying!!! I've been buying a few gifts on etsy this year too because I won't have enough time for everything I want to do. Every single shop has been great service, great product and prompt shipping. I can't show you my purchases just in case people I am gifting to are reading the blog- but if you are looking for wonderful, unique handcrafted gifts don't forget to visit Etsy- there are some terrific shops there!!
I'll leave you with some pictures of some of the snow we have recieved lately. It covers the garden, so that makes me happy. The flowers have a nice cozy blanket for the winter now. Miko the Pomeranian LOVES the snow. He would stay out there all day if I let him, but I make him come inside after a little bit so his tiny feet don't freeze. I thought he would hate the snow and I would have to drag him outside to go to the bathroom all winter- but he sure fooled me! He dives into the banks with his little snout and comes out just covered. What a crazy dog! Hope you are all enjoying the holiday season and if you are in the winter season where you live I hope you are staying warm and cozy :)
