Christ Wood Letters

Well the last of my boutiques finished on Wednesday
and I can say I survived!
Thank you to everyone for all your kindness and support!
Here is my favorite I did this year.
I have the cutest little elderly couple that live across the street from me.
They come and check on me to make sure I'm not working too hard
and a couple of years ago the wife gave me
an old flannel block pattern she had used for her own kids and grand kids
and also now for her great grand kids.
So I'm guessing it's about 50 years old.
I saw a Super Saturday idea for these but it seems
no one on the internet can track down the source
so I knew this pattern would be perfect to create some of my own.
I am a huge fan of making "Christ" the center of Christmas
and I'm always glad for an excuse to decorate that way.
Now if I can just summon the courage to get out the Christmas decorations....

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!
My little family and I went and hibernated over at my parents house,
where I was grateful for medicine for the lovely ulcer I've accumulated over this season,
for yummy food I was able to help cook with my family,
for the peaceful and loving home my parents provide
where I received the rest and comfort I needed.
Happy Holidays!

Last But Not Least....

Yup, I said it.
This is the last boutique/bazaar of the season I'm involved with
and it's for sure one you won't want to miss!!

My wonderful neighbor Sherrie and her hubby
run their own business and supply gift stores
with a nice stash of goodies
that I admit, they were my source last year for most of my Christmas shopping!
Yes, I'll have a few things there and my other amazing friend
Jill will have her talents there too!
She creates the most beautiful necktie necklaces
and boot mock socks just to name a few!
I'm hoping to get a few pictures posted this week of my
favorite crafts from this season....
and hopefully finally get some sleep.:)

Holiday House Christmas Boutique

I can hardly believe the Christmas boutiques are already here!
Here's the invite for my favorite one
Holiday House Boutique!

It's only about a week and a half away and I'm
busy busy trying to put the finishing touches on everything.
I did pull out of another fabulous one that starts tomorrow
that you don't want to miss either!
The Brookwood Bazaar
out in Eagle off of Floating Feather and Eagle Road
is a great bazaar with so many talented gals!
I had too many irons in the fire this week
with my baby girl turning 8!
Can you believe it?
So with birthdays and in-laws, school fundraiser and Halloween
all in one week....I decided I wanted to keep my sanity.:)

I promise to post some pictures soon, and not just over at Crafty Sisters.
I've got some really fun elf shoes I'm working on......
Happy Crafting everyone!:)
