Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

The packages are wrapped and under the tree, stockings are hung and cookies are baked.
Time to sit back and enjoy the holidays! That is exactly what I plan on this will be my last post until 2011.
These are very strange times we're living in, but you know what? There is still so much to be thankful for every day!!! Hang on to the good times. Don't forget to tell the ones you love, that you LOVE them !! Ignore the bad'll go away eventually.
Most importantly...embrace the arts! Without art and the power of creativity
, the magic is gone.

Have a wonderful and safe holiday season...


And it was always said of him that he knew how to keep Christmas well...May that be truly said of us,and all of us ! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless us everyone !

A visit to santa

I have seen better Santas in my day, but this was for a very good cause.
Our local Pet food store was raising money for the shelters...

Oliver wasn't too thrilled, but soon realized the shopping opportunity !
A chip off the old block!

I'm pretty ready for the usual I didn't get half the stuff done that I had planned on.
But when you have a cute little puppy running around, who wants to work?!

Best holiday wishes to all!

Happy Holidays!!

I hope all is well with everyone out there in blog land!! Our halls are decked and we're ready for Santa to visit...
Little Oliver is now 14 pounds and got the last of his puppy shots!! He has yet to meet a bowl of kibble he hasn't liked!
He's still really easy and potty training is going really well. The only thing he's not too thrilled about is rain.
So, I got him a fake down jacket at Walmart!!

On the crafty-schamsy end, I just finished a Santa Treasure sack !! It was the closest thing I've done to quilting in a long time. was tons of fun !!


A sneak peek of my Santa Treasure Sack...will be available in my Etsy shop !
