ahhh, it’s over. We had a such wonderful Christmas! Chicago pulled out a White Christmas at the last minute. Woke up 6:30 Christmas morning to snow falling. Awesome! Oscar had such a great time. I thought he was going to wear his voice out from making the car noise for 3 days straight. He got so many great presents. And actually a manageable amount of toys. Thank you family for showing restraint!

Now that it’s all over I don’t know where to begin. I got so much great crafty stuff for Christmas – craft books, pattern & design books, fabric, japanese quilting magazines, a needle felting kit, and so much more. I’m trying to get organized. I have a hundred projects I want to start right now. And I’ve got big plans for my craft room and for this site. Actually big plans for everything. New Year’s frenzy is kicking in.. let’s get this Christmas stuff out of here and redecorate, let’s give up carbs, let’s get new jobs and start businesses. But first I have to finish eating all this chocolate and then maybe a nap.

    needle felting! I just tried that technique before christmas on some xmas tree ornaments (needle felted the decorations on the trees) and monogrammed pot holiders. Exciting! Let me know how it goes, I don’t know anyone else who is doing it.
    Glad to hear you had a wonderful xmas.

    Oh Hilary, what a wonderful little boy you have, how cute in his little jammies. My two didn’t get out of their new matching Spongebob jammies until today! I know just how you feel about starting new things, but believe it or not, I still have two Christmas projects to finish to make up for the lovely I.O.U.s I ended up wrapping. sigh. But then… look out!

    Sounds great! I just wanted to let you know how much I’ve been enjoying your site for the last few months. You must get like an hour of sleep a night…I don’t know how you do it. Thanks for sharing. Those jammies are adorable.
