Merry Christmas!

I'm sorry I've been such a bad blogger lately... but my heart has been elsewhere. I love this time of year and have been busy busy, as I'm sure the rest of you are. The thing is... I love this kind of busy! I love the merry making, the gift creating, the art group parties, cookie parties and everything else December brings! I don't mind any of it. And I especially love it with the rain we've had lately, which we desperately need.
So here's my last month in photos...  though I don't have pics of everything. That's one of the reasons I don't blog as much as I use to; I found that instead of fully enjoying what I was doing, in the past I spent a lot of time trying to capture pics to share on my blog. While I have committed to keeping my blog, (and improving it in the New Year) those days are gone. I am more focused on enjoying life, and sharing what I can with all of you. So here goes...

A few weeks ago, Nancy and I hosted a workshop with the very talented Cindy Gonzales at Gilding the Lily. Everyone loves Cindy's classes, and we all made the cutest Christmas ornaments!
Ethyn and I also made ornaments for the family, that he took on his travels over Thanksgiving. I found them online here; they are darling, and easy to make! 

I belong to an art group that meets once a month, and last week was our Christmas lunch. I've heard others rave about it, and I have to agree; everything was just spectacular! We had a fabulous lunch at the Cedar Creek Inn, and everyone created and shared the most amazing exchanges for each other. Just look at our table, loaded with about 240 gifts! We opened our gifts, had to really, just so we could clear the table to have lunch. I was one of the first to leave and that was after 3 hours! I have to say this was The BeSt Christmas Party, such a festive fun group! Thanks to everyone for a wonderful time.
So there you have it, just a little of what I've been up to. I'll be sure and share more soon, and more regularly. Now I'm off to create a couple of sock monkeys... happy Sunday!
