Hello From Chicago

Hello! I am at our apartment just outside of Chicago for the Thanksgiving week. Hubby and I have been horribly sick, with an upper respiratory virus, ever since we came home from Disney World. All I can say is yuck and we just don't feel well.

So, all my crafty plans for last week...didn't happen. Sigh! I have paper and rubber stamps piled up on the kitchen table, back home, awaiting me to create Christmas week. So, yeah...I'm a week behind during the busiest time of the year. Oh well. What gets done gets done.

While I'm here in Chicago, I brought this project with me. I really want to finish it before it gets to be too late to wear it! It is a lot of work! All the hand embroidery is taking me FOREVER! So, that's one of my goals this week...get as much of this scarf done as possible.

Sorry, no pictures. I don't have the means on this old computer here in the apartment. Have a great week and WONDERFUL Thanksgiving! So much to be thankful for!

I Saw A Mouse!!!

Yep, I saw a mouse...Mickey Mouse!!! We took a much needed vacation after a most stressful year! (I try to keep all the stress out of my blog but yes it has been a horrible year at our house!) Mickey took the stress away! :-D I LOVE the parade at Magic Kingdom!!!

While we were there, Disney World started to celebrate their new princess movie...The Princess and the Frog...WOW what a great celebration on the riverboat! They put on an amazing New Orleans style show! We loved it, especially my dad!
Here she is Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen. The cast of the riverboat show all danced off the boat and down the streets of Magic Kingdom. It was awesome!
So I have had a long time away from crafting and I need to make a list to get things done by Christmas! I think I can, I think I can...LOL!
Hope you all are Celebrating Today! (That's what Disney says to do, so I am trying! Praying for less stress in the coming year!)
Have a great day!

Blog Break

Hi all!!!

I'm taking a blogging break to get my thoughts in order. I have way too many ideas swimming in my head and a lot of unfinished projects like my wool floral scarf waiting for me. All that and Christmas will soon be here which means Christmas cards to make!

Have a great week and I'll be around in about a week or so! Hope you won't forget me!

I have been inspired by Chrissie Grace, she sent me one of her handmade bookmarks for our Fall Swap. Do you see the bookmark??? It says Simplify. I have been wanting to try these for a long time and when I received this one from Chrissie I became even more inspired.

Now, mine are not as wide and the handwriting not quite as nice as Chrissie's but what do you think? I think I'm better at sewing on cardboard than!

These colors are prettier in person. We are having yet another gloomy day and it's hard to get good pictures.

I have a couple Christmas ones ready to be sewn but I need thread. I think these will make nice add-ons for Christmas gifts this year.
Hope you're having an inspired day!

One Last Halloween Post

Hello!!! This is a first for is picture of me on my blog! Emma and I sort of look like a garden, I'm a flower and she is a pumpkin. She LOVED Halloween and standing on the porch while the kids came up for candy. She even had her picture taken by a new fan! When it was all over she ran away when I wanted to take her costume off...can't say that I blame her, it was freezing and it was probably a nice warm coat to her!

Hope you all had a great weekend!!! OH...guess what we bought today??? A prelit Christmas tree...bring on the holidays!
