The Holiday Season

Oh the Holiday Season is nearly at an end. As for us here in the mid-west we were hit with a blizzard on Christmas Eve which killed all hopes of Christmas Eve dinner with friends. Nothing to fear at least we were home safe. I know some people weren't as lucky, lots of accidents, abandoned cars and stranded people. We ended up with 14 inches of snow total although with the MAJOR wind some of the snow was 4 ft high. As 2009 comes to an end I can't help but just want to hurry up and tell it good-bye. It hasn't been the best year for the economy, family or friends. I think we all have high hopes for 2010 and what it offers, a fresh start. So to everyone I wish you a happy and safe New Years Eve, I look forward to talking to you again in 2010.
Let me leave you with these adorable pictures of Roscoe :)
Christmas Morning

He can't wait to get the actual packaging off the toys before he takes off playing with them.

And now he and his new Rabbit toy are best friends :)

It's The Holiday Season

OK wow its been quite sometime since I posted anything. After two weeks in CA for Thanksgiving, four of which were travel days, I'm glad to be home for Christmas. I've been sewing a lot lately and discovered I really like embroidery. Of course I always forget to take pictures before I wrap presents I've made. I hope to get photo's of the gift recievers with their handmade gifts to post here the week after Christmas.
For me the Holiday Season isn't just about the Holiday's, because it also happens to be about ME! OK well my birthday. December 23 I will celebrate another year of living, breathing and of course creating. I intend to spend this year thinking about all of the great opprotunities I have had in the past and all that the future holds. I hope that my new year of living, breathing and creating, brings with it some organization and goals. Being a Manic Crafter is fun, but its not very organized or well thought out.
I hope to go back to writing for a local art paper, Art Beat. I wrote for them a couple of times over this last year and enjoyed it, I just dropped the ball on keeping up with what was going on and doing it. I don't know exactly what my new year of life holds, but I certainly hope I take the time and effort to make the most of it.
