Little stitched ornaments make me happy--WOYWW 236

I hope you are having a creative season of fun and happiness! It is What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday over at Miss Julia's Stamping Ground. I'm linking up my busy worktable right here for the world to see!

I've had the stars and circles dies going in the Big Shot for several projects. Then I saw the cutest FB post from Stephanie Ackerman with layered circle stitched ornaments, and that was it! I had to stitch some little ornaments which can also do double duty on my Valentines tree later.

Stitching makes me happy, especially when there's 8 inches of snow on the ground.

I was cozy in my craft room for a few days, but now I'm out and about in it on the snow-covered streets again. I'm laying in wait for the Urban Decay Naked Palatte 3 to appear at Sephora--and I'm online searching for the Bigz dies I need.

I've also got a gingerbread house to bake and make, and finishing up touches on the big Christmas tree.

So wherever you are on the planet, have fun at your worktable today! Don't let life's business take you away from being creative, ever! Cheers and happy Wednesday!

WOYWW 235--The Christmas Card Elves Have Arrived!

Love my scoreboard for making the cards and envelopes.
Happy What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday lovely deskers! I just know how busy some of you are, and you are making that mad December dash to get your shopping, baking, planning, and card/craft making all done! Well don't worry, I know you can do it, and remember it's all about the joy of the journey. So take time to have fun with your loved ones and enjoy good food, a nice cuppa, and some great Christmas music.

Visit lots of busy happy desks at the lovely Miss Julia's link party right here.
I've got a little production line set up to make my cards!

You know, last week on Thanksgiving, I knew I had a full two days of cooking ahead of me and a crazy sciatic-nerve lower back on my right side mainly. But, I exercise and stretch every day and I feel pretty good! I just kept focusing on the blessings and the joy of the holiday and I was like superwoman getting all that cooking done! We had such a feast and such a great time together. My sister bought the 20-lb. turkey, and I stuffed it with onion, oranges, and rosemary, and basted it with plenty of butter and olive oil. It was juicy and delish! I made fresh citrus cranberry sauce with a homemade stuffing and lots of other side dishes...we had lots of yummy leftovers.

Now I'm in Christmas card production mode. I love all the gorgeous scrapbook papers we can get now. I used, over the weekend, a fantastic Michaels coupon to get 25% off even the sale items and the scrap pads were all 50% off already. Needless to say, I was in scrapbook paper heaven! I'm making all my cards and envelopes--and I love it because they are all unique. The weather has warmed up BUT the snow is moving in by Thursday night. I say it's time to put on the Christmas music, make hot chocolate, and knit!

Happy Wednesday!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch, Be Happy
