Welcome!

I love working with crafts, rug hooking, wool felt, penny rugs and stitcheries. Primitives are my favorites, but I also love to mix different styles of decorating.

Please sit back, relax and enjoy my blog.

Christmas Decorations Are Up!

Amazingly, I got the fall stuff put away on Sunday and a lot of my Christmas decorations out!! I have a rather large collection of Santas, but didn't put a lot of them out so the decorating didn't take as long as it has in some years. I'm thinking about selling some of the smaller Santas on eBay just to minimize the collection.

But I'm very glad to have the decorations out! I don't have the tree decorated, but think that will happen tomorrow night. Now if I can only get my shopping finished (or started...), I'll be happy. I've watched some movies on TV lately and feel I need to relieve some of my holiday stress, most of which is self-inflicted. I have a Christmas birthday (December 23rd) so the holidays are stressful for me anyway and the last few years, they just seem to be getting worse. So I'm going out in the next few days to do some shopping (or all of it...).

I have some vacation days after Christmas so I'll be off work from Christmas Eve until after the New Year and I'm looking forward to being off work and working on some crafts. Working on my crafts always helps me be less stressed.

And my blogoversary is coming up soon so I might have a giveaway, who knows...

We just got our tree up tonight. I'm going to wait to decorate it until tomorrow. I can't wait. :)

Sorry about your Christmas birthday. I have a couple friends with Christmas Eve bdays and I know they don't love it.

Enjoy all your time off!!

Blessings from Jessica

Hi Sharon,
I hope you are able to de-stress soon. And don't fret about your birthday....having another birthday beats the alternative!

Yay! It took me awhile to get all mine out too. I'll admit... I still have a little pile that needs to be put somewhere. I'm about ready to throw it all in a tote and call it good, haha!

Enjoy that time off, relax! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
