Good-bye 2011

Our holiday season and 2011 have gone by in a blur...another memorable year full of my favorite things. Will post a project round up sometime soon...much accomplished and much left untouched. Dessert recipes, patterns, and new projects are calling my name. Maybe I can accomplish it all in the new year?!

on the road again

This Moment 12.16.11

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. (From Soule this tradition so I am striving to do this as well...I need to take more time to savor and it will be such a treat to look back and remember these moments)

Dear December, where have you gone?

Wow, I have seriously ignored this blog as of late. I realized that I was rapidly running out of time and had to get busy crafting after Thanksgiving. Throw in the required holiday baking, shopping, family time, oh and working full time, and here we are...10 days from Christmas and rapidly approaching the end of 2011.
I have been working on lots of gifts for the holidays as part of my GSD craft year...I made cookie jar gifts and paper ornaments for my coworkers. I gave them out today at our holiday lunch. Hopefully they liked them and will make more cookies at home. I will post more craft project pics after the holidays...I don't want to spoil any gifts ahead of time in case any of my friends or family check the blog. I am hosting a cookie swap this weekend with my sister, so expect to see some photos of delicious cookies soon!
