Day three just blended right into day four of my tour of nothingness before Christmas. Here's what I'm liking best - I have time to craft for ME! I have time to try new things - like these flowers I've been eyeing. Love the vintage look of them and now that I practiced making a few - everyone on my Christmas list will be getting one as a hair pin or a corsage. Ok, not everyone. Like, I'm sure my husband wouldn't care for one although he did help me figure out the process for making these beauties. I know my sister reads and yes...I have one for you too! Can't wait to give it to you!
And thus day three...
- I went to work at my big university job. It's finals week and I've seen some mighty stressed out students this week. One even cried after sitting down after just a minute...lack of sleep and the pending reality of the "real world" will do that to ya. Remember those days?
- I had to stop at the grocery for a few staples before going home.
- And then hugs and kisses to all as the peas were all headed to bed.
And then I was able to start crafting these precious blooms
Day four isn't even done yet but I can tell you this...work, work, work.
Tomorrow, a meeting with Suann and laundry on the to do list.
Might actually need to do some Christmas shopping for the kids too.
I have some cash finally from my craft shows so I can get them a few things. This year, things are quite tight. Will do my best to make it special for them. They are easy to please and I'm a pretty thrifty shopper. I do have one big surprise up my sleeve. Maybe two. Lots of handmade goodies will be under the tree. Maybe a few thrifted items but things they will love. The greatest gift has already been given to us.
Snow fell beautifully outside my office window today. I think we shall have a white Christmas. Yippee!
Listening to the "MercyMe Christmas" station on Pandora - very good. I love Steven Curtis Chapman's version of Away In a Manger. What miracles came to us that day - and continue to swirl around us each day.
Day five...I'm beginning to like doing nothing. (but I do have a deadline still for submitting pattern text for the magazine feature...that's hardly a chore)
Wishing you a wonderful nothing kind of day. What do you have planned for this weekend? What are you crafting up for the holidays for gifts? (I did just get a few blooms listed to my etsy shop - I have MANY more, I just get tired of listing them!)
