Time Flies

Time has flown by around here, in more ways than one. I took a little break over Thanksgiving. We left last Wednesday to visit family and didn't return home until Sunday. My plan was to decorate the house for Christmas before we left, but that of course didn't happen. Instead I just dug out all the Christmas stuff and didn't finish anything and came home to a disaster. Such fun. My parents are coming to stay tonight so you can guess what I've been up to. But the house is decorated and sort of clean and I can really buckle down and focus on gift making.

This is one little decoration I made for myself - a vase cozy I guess? It just makes everything look warm and cozy I think. The yarn is possum that my MIL got me a couple years ago in Australia. It is extremely soft (if not a little strange!)

Time has flown by in another way too. Two years ago today I started this blog. Two years ago today, I found a way to connect with some amazing people from the confines oops I mean comfort of my own home. Thank you all for reading, commenting and just being my friend. To those of you from my "real life" (Rachel, Wendy, Sara, Stacy, Becky, Mom) it means so much to me that you read this and care what is going on in my day to day life. To all of you out there that I have yet to meet in person, connecting with you through this blog has been a wonderful experience. Thank you all very much.

So, I'm off to clean my craft room so my mom and I can work on some projects while she's here. While I'm doing that, I will be thinking about some giveaway ideas for my blogiversary! Check back tomorrow and I'll let you know what I came up with!!
