Hi Blog Friends,
Sorry it’s been awhile. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't over stuff yourselves. I’ve been busy trying to pull out some of my Christmas decorations and cleaning house so I could decorate. What a job it is, but when its done it always gets me in the Christmas spirit.
My sister and niece came down from PA an spent a few days with us. My niece – Meagan is 8 and is really getting into the crafting world. She draws pictures for me and they are really very good.
My wall of fame!
Here’s the card she made me for Thanksgiving. When you open the card the turkeys beak opens and closes!!
Here’s a turkey puppet she made all by herself. All hand stitched and glued. It’s just adorable.
Here Meagan is helping me bake sugar cookies. She had fun decorating them with colored sugar and sprinkles. After they were baked I told her to try one, but she said she didn’t like cookies!! This kid only eats healthy things. I don’t know any 8 yr olds that only eat healthy.
We had fun making a few crafts and visiting, but I’ll tell you I was glad to get a break when they left. Shoooo…..
Saturday, I decorated the front of the house. I just kept it simple this year. I purchased this tall 5’ Santa a few years ago and put him in front of the front door with some boxes I wrapped and stacked. We never use the front door so it’s a great place for Mr. HoHo to stand. It’s on a covered porch so he will be fine.
Here’s a picture of the wreaths I made for the doors this year. The wreath is from Wal-Mart I purchased at the end of last year on clearance, then I put a pick of berries and snowflakes on it and used an old slat from an old shutter to put the Seasons Greetings sign on it. Very simple to do and I really like how it turned out.
I spent Monday getting my Christmas decoration for the inside of the house together and am going to finish up decorating today so I’ll have more pictures to share later this week.
Last Friday I received my winnings from Cindy at A Touch of Sunshine!!
This perfectly prim hand stitched Snowman. My picture doesn’t do him justice, but he melted my heart when I opened the box and seen him.
Thank you so much Cindy for this great gift. I will cherish him always.
If you’ve never been to Cindy’s blogs, yes she has two and they are both great places to visit. Cindy’s A Touch of Sunshine blog is her everyday blog (which has some freebies) and her selling blog Cindy Primitive Heart has some really nice items for sale. Click on the links to visit her. If you go to Cindy Primitive Heart blog, check out her prairie dolls under her header Primitive Folk art dolls. They are oh so prim.
Well I gotta get busy finishing my decorating and then get back to crafting. My selling booths are almost empty!!! WooHoo things are selling!!
Have a GREAT week everyone,
