Tis the Season

Once Again I seem to have fallen behind on this whole posting thing haven't I?!

In my defense, December is always a rather busy month! Birthdays and Christmas Parties and all that jazz. Sadly being exceptionally busy every weekend, and having been sick for the last week with a cold, my creativity has taken a small vacation. I did however, manage to make the following piece which I am quite proud of since it took some imagination to get it to all work and stay together.

Other than that, I would just like to say I love the Christmas Season. Here are a few things I love about it...

- Crisp fresh mornings with the sunrise peaking over the buildings on my drive to work
- Getting letters and Cards in the mail (I love snail mail don't you?)
- Writing letters and adding little gifts 
- Dressing up and going to Christmas Parties
- Eggnog
- Mandarin Oranges
- Chocolate
- Snuggling inside where its warm with a cup of tea or hot chocolate 
- Curling up on the couch with my husband and nerding it out watching episode after episode of Stargate SG-1 (I love him for putting up with me and my silly loves)
- Freshly fallen snow

Those are just a few things! Sometimes I think I hate winter because I dislike the cold. But then I remember how beautiful snow is, and how nice it is to snuggle up inside and just spend time with loved ones. 

And on that note, since its only 10 days until Christmas. 

I wish you all a very happy holiday!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

I've felt rather spoiled lately. First a trip to Hawaii and then my husband's work had an overnight Christmas Party at Emerald Lake Lodge which was utterly GORGEOUS! It was so crisp and beautiful out there. A far cry from hot and sunny Hawaii but just as amazing and enjoyable (yes this is me admitting to maybe liking the cold for once).

If there is anything that makes me sure there is a Creator, is nature. Nothing as beautiful as our world could have happened by chance.

I also got a lovely tripod for my camera from my husband for my 25th birthday this week. December is such a full month. My birthday, my sister's birthday, Christmas, my wedding anniversary (6 years already!) and New Years. Tonight I shall set up my Christmas tree I think.

And after that, actually pay attention to my shop which has sadly been neglected with how busy I have been. I solemnly swear right now to do better! And make things!
