Off to Washington for a white Christmas!

We are all packed and ready to go. All we need now is an airplane. David is so excited about seeing snow, and if it weren't for his three finals in less than two days he might have already left without us for Washington. We have big big family plans for this little girls first awake Christmas and Hannukah. Also I can't wait to touch base with all my friends <3 We will definitely post pictures and stories when we get back. I can't wait to hear everyone's Christmas stories too!

As far as the crafty night I was talking about a few posts early, it is looking like Friday night will be our night. I'm thinking about starting with just twice a month. Hopefully we can have our first craft-together The second Friday in January im thinking 7pm. Even if it will just be Jenny and Me. But of course everyone is welcome. Just bring any portable craft project you are working on, knit, crochet, needle felt, hand sew, embroidery, jewelry... whatever! If you haven't got a project to work on but still want to come bring yourself and maybe we can help you find a new project. Let me know if you are interested.

Merry Christmas!

2 weeks... really?

So it has been two weeks since i've last posted anything, and really, it has just flew by! After a rocky morning, im sitting sipping a very strong cup of coffee hoping to "start over" after nap time. Im trying to slow things down and really enjoy all the wonderful things going on around me. Also, being more mindful of my everyday interactions is top on my list. Deep breath.

Handmade Christmas is proving to be more work than I orginally planned for. I still get excited about coming home from work and finishing up a project or two at night. It makes me feel like one of santas elfs. If only I had some elf friends to work with.

Im thinking about starting up a craft club here in the Meyerland area. I miss my crafty friends in Washington and comparing and sharing projects. This will be top priority after Christmas break. Also I plan to start doing more embroidery. I love seeing pictures of peoples homes with their work hanging in embroidery hoops all over their walls. (If anyone is interested in join, and possibly meeting Thursday or Saturday nights please comment here or get in touch with me. Basicly we will get together to work on our own projects, compare notes, chat, and show off our handmade goodness.)
