I found this vintage lot on Etsy or Ebay a couple years ago. Perfect colors? Check. Felt and flocking? Check. The perfect dose of kitsch? Check.
This set of ornaments were handmade by my friend Karen. Her shop is closed for the holidays, but hopefully you can stock up on some ornaments for next year when she reopens! These are just as exquisite in person as they look in this photo. They are lovingly handmade with the most thoughtful and careful craftmanship. These are probably my most favorite ornmanents I own. (Thank-you Karen!)
I found this handmade needlepoint plastic canvas lot on Ebay or Etsy last year, or the year before. I LOVE these. I always try to imagine the person that made them. I love the little Santa shadow boxes. They are just all too perfect.

I'm not sure what it is about this time of year, but I'm crafting and making things like a mad-woman. There's always this almost compulsive desire to MAKE things. I love it. I always cram in too many projects in a short amount of time, but I wouldn't have it any other way! I love the busyness of this time. I love seeing everyone else's busyness. Everything is rush, rush, rush, and that just adds to the excitment of things for me.
I'm hoping to get some good photos of our decorations in the next couple days. I'm running out of time! Our decor always seems to change in some small way every year. I like changing things up.
On a sad note, my Cambpell is still so sick! :*( We're going on three weeks of a horrible, horrible cough. I took him to urgent care last night, but his oxygen is good and his lungs sound fine for as bad as he sounds with the coughing. I'm going to look into seeing an allergist for possible reflux causing the cough. The doctor at the ER said the cough could persist for more weeks! But he's missing school because he has coughing fits constantly. Anyone else have a child with chronic cough like this due to reflux? He's been on steroids, antibitiocs, breathing treatments, the works, and nothing seems to give him relief. It breaks my heart.
