I didn't take a lot of pictures. I just wanted to enjoy the day with the kiddos. We had a really nice day. Despite an awful sinus headache, and the strangeness of not celebrating our holiday with any of our extended family, I managed to make it through the day! I made us a yummy super low fat/low carb/sugar free dinner and dessert.
The kids loved their new toys! Although, I think opening the gifts was way more exciting for them than anything else. Santa was good to us! The only regret is that the day goes by too darn fast. So now, we enjoy our new goodies and our time together and look forward to ending this year and moving on to a whole new year full of fun and excitement!

I hope everyone out there has a lovely holiday season. I feel so lucky just to have my little family with me to celebrate this year. We've had quite a year and I am ready to see it out with a quiet and peaceful week of just enjoying my time with Mark and the kiddos. I send big hugs and kisses to all of you and a gooey candy covered gingerbread house too!

I finished up my last craft show of the year! The "Not Too Late Craft Fair "was an awesome experience and I hope I will be able to do it again next year. It was very inspiring to be among such incredible artists all day. I met a lot of wonderful people and let in some holiday cheer too. Now I look forward to a future of last minute Christmas shopping and custom order finishing. Hopefully, with a sip of eggnog here and there:)

It's been beautiful here during the last couple of weeks. Sunshine and blue sky with super chilly nights, and a little fog here and there. The trouble is, that when it is sunny here, I feel it is my duty to be outside with my kids, not stuck inside the house sewing and carryin' on and such. We should be out PLAYIN' IN THE SUN!!!! Fortunately/Unfortunately I am pretty busy right now with lots o' different things. I am preparing for my next fair and trying to work on some custom orders in between. I miss the rain for that reason. Work. I need to get a lot done and the rain is all I need to keep me from daydreaming about frothy coffee drinks and playing in the park. I just work, then play a little bit, then work again. I need that right now. Plus, there is nothing like hangin' out in the big chair drinking hot coffee with a little splash of eggnog while the kiddos and I cuddle and watch the rain fall outside. That is what the rainy season here is all about to me. Oh well, hopefully we'll see some soon, right now, I'll just be happy with an overcast day or two and some fog.

I cannot believe how messy this place gets when I am distracted by work! I now get to spend the day organizing and cleaning up so I can make it just as messy for our next show. These are the days that I dream of my own studio space where there is room for everything I need. I would have snapped a picture or two to share with you but it might make you cry, it made me cry and I live here!
