T'was the Night Before the Night Before...

I'm feeling a little more relaxed about things. I think it is now to the point where if it hasn't happen or been bought it won't be.

Joy - I did get caught up with my daily book. It felt good to be caught up. I have rather enjoyed it though it didn't quite happen as I planned. Do things ever? I am happy that I have kept going with it as sticking to projects is something I am not good at.

I spent today putting finishing touches on items. I am looking forward to doing more crafting once the holidays are over. It seems to me that the time leading up to the holidays is so crazy and then suddenly it's all over and there seems to be lots of spare time. While I'm in the mood to craft I'm going to take advantage and start on some projects. I got lots of goodies from daughter for presents when we went to visit so I want to make sure to use them and show her the projects I've used them for.

I finally took a few phone photos of some easy projects.

These are lovely little treat boxes that hold a few little sweets. They are fairly easy to make  - that being said it's been a while since I made them and I messed the first one up completely!

And a couple of quick shaker cards from a kit I bought at Tuesday Morning (a discount shop). The kits are fairly cheap and are really easy to make - nice to keep on hand for quick homemade cards.

I also wanted to share some lovely makes from my MIL. She is such a talented craftswoman. She can do just about anything - knitting, crocheting, beading, sewing, cross stitching - really a very talented woman. I absolutely love these birds.

She always does some sort of ornament at Christmas and every year they seem to be better!

Hope everyone has a good Monday!


  1. Glad to read that you are feeling more relaxed. Looks like you are all ready for Christmas. I love those cards you made and the little bird ornaments are lovely! Your MIL is a very talented lady!

    Wish you and yours a very Happy Christmas, Sharon.

  2. Those birds are just amazing - I love them. I also love the cards and I totally agree about that 'empty' time, particularly between Christmas Day and New Year. A crafting project would be just the ticket, I think.
    Happy Christmas Eve to you.
