After such a busy holiday season (which is still going on-and is wonderful!!) sometimes we just need a little rest. My kids certainly get that-they requested that I made them beds to lay on downstairs.....I completely understand.

snuggly loves

i want to kiss his cheeks all day long

and lay and chat about life with this little gem

These are a few of my favorite things....

making Christmas cookies

just looking at them makes me happy

watching White Christmas with the kids-and Isabelle having to dance with daddy just like the girl in the movie (check out the screen)

the first big snow

little bundles of love

Isabelle's hilarious shovel

my love with his new snow thrower

that face

the "smiles"

sibling love.
                  Merry Christmas...I hope your day is filled with a few of your favorite things!!

So I was happily sitting at my computer....checking email, facebook, etc when I realized I had not seen Isabelle for a few minutes. And yes, a few minutes without seeing Isabelle is cause for alarm since that sweet girl lives attached to me:) Now Judah was asleep so I knew she was not playing with him....so I crept upstairs (hoping to catch her doing something mischievous) and this is what I found.....sweetest little sleepy girl ever!!!

What Have I Been Up to Lately??

 Making things for a WONDERFUL  handmade holiday....me and my sister started this last year and we just have such a blast with it for these two years! I sold tons of stuff-which is super fun as well. Then after the sale I had a number of custom orders to get started on...now I am finally caught up but need to get more things made for my next two sales!! (just two weeks away) Let me just say that there is something so incredibly fulfilling in the process of creation....I love it so much! Now for some pictures.
Custom orders of baby/toddler hats and a large cowl.

One shot of the Open House

the beautiful leather cuffs (I traded a xl cowl for one of these babies and I LOVE it!)

beautiful hand thrown pottery-I also own one of these lovelies now too:)

another shot of the night

beautiful work by one of my friends Leah
Thanksgiving is coming and boy am I busy-but so so so thankful for all the rich blessings the Lord has poured out. My all of your days be blessed!

Sometime I wish I lived in a tent

                       Sometimes with these two little loves....and sometimes all by myself.....cause sometimes imagining silence makes me giddy.

A Peter Pan Halloween

Would you go to him??

My little babes checking themselves out in the mirror-clearly Judah was pleased!

The happiest little Peter Pan-never grow up little one....never.

Take that sucker

You know when there is something you love so much that you wish you could just make it and have a million? I have that feeling for a few things, one of them being sweet little necklaces with small charms, or pendants...or just plain. I love them. So, I decided to try to make one and I LOVE it. I could make a million-and probably will:)
Here is my "Mind your P's and Q's"  one.
love it
Spread it out so you could see what the Q looked like
 What are things you have mastered making because you love them that much?
