Last night, when DH said he has two more weeks of work then he's off for the year, I suddenly thought when am I making all these cookies and buying presents and making stockings for the mantle and making another quilt for the stairway???
Today I join my friends at T is for Tuesday to talk about our week, share what we're drinking (hint it's not enough water)
|rose wine mixed with grape juice|
(the little coaster is hand pieced hexies and I've used it all year after making it last year)
and what we're making
|Christmas fabric masks|
|origami stars made of fabric|
|yum, I like helping mama prewash the dishes|
I'm taking a 5 day drawing class online with Joanna Basford, whom I just just adore! It's free, just join her newsletter to get it.
I am also enjoying the Jacquie Lawson advent calendar full of beautiful graphics, games, design fun. A new video opens each day, I can design Christmas trees, cookies, play new games, find the gnome... listen to lovely music. It's $5 for a month's worth of fun to look forward to.
Now I really must get dressed. It is warm here this week, in the 60's, and we have lots of snow left on rooftops and ground still from the last storm. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
I LOVE this song sung by two favorites, John Legend and Carrie Underwood. Beautifully filmed and heart healing wordshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KiFSKLTj0U
Some people don't seem to care that animals have feelings... or is it they don't want to be reminded to love one another?
