Well, I finally finished the Christmas trees I’ve been working on for what feels like FOREVER!
They’ve been sitting on my table waiting for their stars, and I have just NOT been able to find what I want. Today I decided I was tired of waiting for perfect, and opted to make do until I can find what I REALLY want.
I am sorta crazy about them. Well, maybe more than sorta. I tend to get kinda full of myself when I do something I really like, and I really like these! Here they are in their place with the tattered ‘n worn angels!
I may have to watch for spectacular sales on lace and doodads and bases through the year and put some in my Etsy store next year…
This morning I got the girls dolled up in their Christmas dresses and we went in search of Santa…Bea volunteered that she wasn’t afraid of him this year, so that was good! She was very animated as she described the “Prince Daddy” doll that she wanted to go with her Cinderella doll, showing him with her hands how tall he needed to be. I’m sure he had no idea what she was talking about. I mean, how many girls call Prince Charming “Prince Daddy?” (All men are “daddys” to her!) Hannah, unfortunately, got the word about Santa from her school mates last Christmas, but she played along, asking for her American Girl doll. It was quite sweet.
For those who follow my craziness, doing the cookie trays for the neighbors won out, so tomorrow I’ll be up to my arm pits in flour, sugar, butter, chocolate, chopped nuts, coconut, marshmallow whip and who knows what else! The pressure is on, but truly, that’s when I do my best and most productive work!
Tomorrow is also the day the girls will be working on their gifts for Mommy and Daddy (yikes! I almost wrote what they are, but Mommy is a lurker around here…I’m glad I remembered! Whew!) I hope I’m not spending the same time 2 or 3 times…I do that on occasion!
Oh, and one more thing…I found the cutest birdie ornament! It reminds me both of my fly tribe, and to be brave.
Hope all your holiday preparations are coming along as you’d hoped, and that you are taking time to ENJOY the season of good will.
