Almost Christmas

This morning found me finishing two wool dolls for my nieces.  I've never made a doll before and the project was more fun than I expected.  Not too unlike mushrooms I guess.  I hope they like them.

This one has gathered the tiniest acorns you've ever seen.

I realized last night that I wouldn't likely finish the last project on my list in time so I headed to town for some last-minute shopping.  I'll tell you, stores at Christmas-time = ughhhhh.  (It's probably not very Christmas spirit-y to imagine myself crane-kicking people out of my way, is it?  Don't tell Santa.)

Tomorrow is my daughter's birthday and then of course we have Christmas.  We'll be snuggled in celebrating and eating.  And eating.  Did I mention eating?  Cookies and a cake will be baked today.  The boys are on winter break so I'll have all 4 little ones to help me.  Always a good time.  (messy, but good)

Posting will be infrequent until after the new year so I'd like to take a moment to wish all of you a wonderful season and a new year filled with creativity and happiness. 

Thank you sincerely for stopping in and sharing your worlds with me.  I appreciate it so much.

Best Wishes,

I ended up making my mom a poinsettia brooch from your tutorial. It wasn't what i'd planned but maybe the best gifts are just like that :)

Stay warm and Happy Holidays from Ohio.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday too! Those dolls are adorable, I'm sure your nieces will love them. Baking and eating sounds like a good plan, I will be doing much of the same starting tonight.

Thanks for the laugh about Christmas shopping too - that is just how I feel.

Those dolls are amazing, Lisa. Everything you touch turns into a breathtaking creation. Happy birthday to your big girl! Mine has a birthday on the other end of Christmas. It is funny to be baking a birthday cake on top of all the other treats we have in the house, but we wouldn't have it any other way.So fun to know you're in the same mega celebratory boat. We found as she got older (and wanted a party with more than just her family) that waiting until January was a peaceful way to to do it. Just saying. Hope you have a wonderful holiday. I look forward to seeing all the magic you'll make in the new year. Thanks for you constant inspiration.
All my love,
