Merry Christmas

I am almost finished with all of my Christmas projects- how are you doing?  I can't remember a year I have been so far behind- I think planning a bit earlier next year would be a very good idea.  I have my tree up and my house has been cleaned.  Most all of the presents are wrapped and I only have one more trip for the post office (I'm guessing those packages will be late).  Here's our tree this year, and a picture of some awesome ornaments sent to me from Nikki at Witch And Wizard Miniatures.  I love that little owl so much!!

I also decorated the flower shop and bakery dollhouse-here's a picture of the front window in the flower shop.  The santa and reindeer in the front window are Hallmark ornaments- I think they are the perfect size for a Christmas window display.

This was the only miniature work I have done all month long.  I sure do miss it.  I can't wait to get back to work on the candy house in the New Year.  Hope you have a good week and that your lists are almost finished too.  Merry Christmas to my blogging friends :)

Beatiful Christmas to you, Kim!
Your tree is so pretty. :)
You are lucky to be done with your seasonal preparations, althought a little late, as you write.
I´m just somewhere in the first half of my list...
But we have a tree decorated !!! - and that´s the basic thing!

Claudia said...

So good to hear from you! Your tree is beautiful and I love the way you've decorated your minis. I hope you are managing some time to enjoy the season! How are you feeling?


Jill said...

Happy happy Christmas, sweet Kim! Your home is looking so festive~ I looooove your Christmas tree! So pretty! I also love how you decorated your minis!

I have felt a little behind this year too. Don't worry, it will all come together by Christmas, right?! Just be sure to take care during this busy time. It's easy to over-do. Best wishes for a happy Christmas!

The tree is so beautiful Kim..This is the first year in my entire life that I am this far behind. I don't have one gift wrapped...I JUST started getting gifts this week. They are all piled in the corner in my old daycare room now becoming something that I won't share until I have it completed,, the corner still in the bags..I do have crafts done..miracle upon miracle...I need to do tons of baking..and ummmmm...when is Christmas Eve? LOL..oh well, I will NOT stress....

Life is busy! No doubt about it. :)

Your tree and the mini's look great!!
Miss you....... :(


Kim said...

Zlatica- Merry Christmas to you also! I figure that the season doesn't really have to end on the Christmas day, right?? It's all about the love anyhow, not the lists. Hope you catch up to your list and get a chance to relax and enjoy the season ♥

Claudia- Thank you!!! I have actually just decided this week to not stress anymore and enjoy this week with no deadlines or lists- just me time :) I am feeling good!!! I hope you are the same and hope you have a love and laughter filled Christmas ♥

Kim said...

Jill- Thank you for your sweet words ♥ I am actually taking care of myself this season- much to hubby's amazement- lol!!! I am enjoying a hot cup of tea and relaxing this week- I hope you can do the same and that your holiday is fabulous!!!!!!

Glenda- thank you- a very Merry Christmas to you too!!!!

Julia- Thank you- Merry Christmas to you also. I hope that 2011 brings you good health, love and the laughter of friends and family surrounding you. Thank you for your kindness this year ♥

Kim said...

Angela- don't stress- what is meant to get done will be finished and the rest will not matter when it comes down to spending your time with family and friends. This is my new philosophy :) I wish you a blessed Christmas my friend- I hope 2011 is your year for good things ♥

Laura- Girl- I miss you too. I promise I'm getting my act together soon after the holidays. I hope your Christmas is fabulous and that you get to relax the entire time ♥

"Late" & "behind" are the buzzwords this season :) but Kim, you have done a great job. And anyway,Mother Nature is on the side of the laters and the behinders. Mail will be late thanks to the terrible weather and the closing of airports.

Cup of tea is exactly what I will take time to enjoy :).

Let it all go and just enjoy. That's what I'm doing. It's very freeing. Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas season, Kim. I've so enjoyed getting to know you a bit this year.
