Time Flies and then its Christmas Again
I have been so busy getting ready for Christmas. I really think at some point its going to seem like a week and a half between Christmases (How in the world do you spell the plural of Christmas). I am getting to where I do not even want to put a tree up because I feel like I just took it down. That and the fact that all my kids are too old to care about helping me decorate the tree. I miss the days when they would fight over hanging up an ornament.
I am trying something that I think will be fun this year. I am having my own little "holiday market" with a couple of friends. We are selling our art and also having a pampered chef lady, Arbonne, Noonday, and who knows what else. I have been making angels among other things. (Above). I think I am going to put my Etsy shop on vacation that day and just take everything I have to the show. I have to say I have decided this week that there are so many very nice, hard working people on Etsy and I have been blessed to "meet" them there. It has given me hope that there are some decent people out there. I think one day I am going to see if some of them will let me post some of my favorite items on here.
I will post how the open house goes. It is just one more step in this "artist" adventure that I am on. It may be something others may want to try.
My sons are home from college and I am so thrilled. Young moms out there - take a deep breath with those little ones and relax just a bit and enjoy them. Enjoy their messes and their runny noses. Enjoy being a bus driver and seeing their little faces for those brief car rides and turn the music down and listen to them. It won't be long and they will be gone.
