Merry Christmas!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families.  I'm sure most are glad it's over. 
However, for us crafters we're planning on what projects to carry over for next year.  I had a
nice quiet day with my honey.  Slept in late, relaxed, made dinner, ate, drank and watched movies. No gifts were exchanges as we had gotten the two main things a month ago, new TV and my new phone.  I am happy with that.  We have jobs, good health and had a great meal. What more can you ask for?  What did you do?

I sported my holiday nails I got from So Gloss Etsy store a bit ago.
They are easy to put on using your hair dryer to heat up, trim and press. They last a week or more depending on how hard you work your hands ;)

I finished my honey's knitted cap tonight.  It's tight fitting but he has a shaved head
so it's fine.  Next time I'll make one bigger. 

I've always loved the Starburst Granny Squares and with some new yarn colours I started making a few this week and joining them as I go.  What it will turn into shall yet be determined.  

Enjoy the rest of your holidays!!!

Winter Solstice

Happy first day of winter.  
I got my end table all ready for the holiday.  My light snowman in the glass block I got at a craft fair a few years ago, snowman candy dish received at this years work secret santa, my snowman bobble-head I painted.  My mini ceramic tree and front left a lovely decor item made by my supervisor at work with potpourri and flowers with the lights.

Working on finishing a table runner.  Trying to finish the quilting then bind the edges.
Made a few small decor items and working on some pastel circles for granny squares.

Desk at work.
And, the floral arrangement won for second place in our
desk decorating contest. 

Some more home decor.

These are the items I received from my swap partner in the Handmade gift exchange this year. All the way from Germany.  The chocolate was delicious. 

Yesterday I got to celebrate my cousin's 30th birthday, on the right, 10 years plus i'm in the middle and 10 years plus is my aunt.  Love family get togethers.

3 Weeks and Counting...

It's been a long week. I've been trying to make small little projects here and there. It's been hard being more tired with winter approaching.  Sleeping in is more appealing.  I guess being on afternoon shift will do that too.  I did decorate last week around the house.  I pulled out my Crochet Granny Square Tree, above, I made last year.  

Made some ornaments and holly pin.

Basket of stuff.

Finally using up some christmas squares I got last year.  I am making a table runner.

And at work, the desk decorating is on. 

Well happy weekend all!  Get crafting.
