night before christmas......


The night before Christmas...all is calm and all is bright.  Honey and I are finally settling down.  I have been enjoying some wonderful old fashion hard candy, yummy.  Honey is having a ball with his camera.  I think he just went out doors to snap the neighbors lights.:o)  We both are kids at heart when it comes to Christmas!  I am also finishing up an earring and necklace set for my sister.  The only thing left to do is to fill my little goodie bags which I will finish early morning.  Don't you just love Christmas, a beautiful time of the year.  Merry Christmas dear friends!!

the faithful one......


Hello all!  Hope each of you enjoyed a most lovely weekend.  Just a few days till Christmas.:o)   For me, the busy is starting to slow just a bit.  Honey and I took a little break yesterday in the way of a long drive along the coast.  Oh my goodness what a lovely drive it was.  It was a pretty warm day yesterday, but once the sun tucked behind the horizon the evening breezes were amazing.

A few days ago I received the most beautiful Christmas card from a dear cousin, and what a lovely card it is.  The words so captured my heart and wanted to share them with you.   Happy week to you dear friends.

Jesus The Faithful One

The confidence we have...
The trust we hold...
The hope we carry...
Rest in His Faithfulness.

Every promise He has made
He purposes to fulfill.
He has the Authority to 
Accomplish all He has spoken.

His power is limitless...
His character changeless...
His love Endless!

really.....


Hello all!  Is it really only days till Christmas.:o)   I've been twisting, wrapping, tying bows, cutting and folding...a busy week in my little studio for sure.   I also made the prettiest handmade gift tags using lovely vintage Christmas images.   They were quite easy to make.  I simply copied the images onto card stock.  Once copied I cut the images out, punched a hole at the top and added ribbon.  Oh my goodness what a difference these tags make to your gifts, the perfect touch.   If you want to be extra fancy you can even add glitter to your tags.   Vintage Holiday Crafts offers some of the most beautiful free clip art for the holidays.  Give them a visit, I just know you will be delighted.  Even if you don't make your own gift tags, adding a little glitter to store bought tags dresses them up just beautifully!:o)

I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can get in a few handmade Christmas cards this year.   For me, it is something wonderful about giving handmade at Christmas.  You don't have to be a crafty queen,  a handmade gift is a heart gift no matter how small.  Wishing each and everyone of you a most beautiful week.

just a little.....


Beautiful but busy, those are the holidays for sure.:o)   In the mist of the busy,  I thought I would settling down for just a moment with a good book.  Leaves of Gold a lovely choice and gives me a chance to use the sweet little brass bookmarks I have been creating by the dozens.:o)

Mornings have been cool, the evenings even cooler.  A special time of the year for sure.  Think I will make this day a resting day...a warm throw, Leaves of Gold, my knitting needles and maybe even a movie.  The holidays can be so busy, but don't forget to carve out a little respite for you too.:o)  Take care.
