I see it's been a while since I posted. Not for lack of things to post but rather lack of time. I have been very busy creating, cooking, wrapping, planning, hiding, shopping, more wrapping, all the things that Christmas brings. So here I am finally finding time to sit down and take a long deep breath. Presents are opened, feast is finished, bows and boxes are put away, and Christmas has come and gone once more. I was feeling that holiday stress this year. You know the stress you feel when you just hope Christmas will go off without a hitch. You wonder if you should book a trip to the tropics and try to avoid the whole holiday thing. You try to have no expectations for fear you will be disappointed but you really want to have a magical Christmas. So I just kept thinking positive and praying for the right attitude and guess what....it worked! Christmas went off with out a hitch. It was a peaceful, magical day. There was lots of eating and chatting and playing and more eating to be had in Kerbyville. So with all that said, Merry Christmas!

There is something about the holidays that inspire me to create. I always wonder why I am not inspired mid summer when the days are long and time is a plenty. Probably the call of the pool, patio, and warm sun keep me from staying indoors. Once the weather changes, the days shorten, and the temperature drops below 50 I am ready to stay in and create. This year I found plenty of ideas at one of my favorite spots, sew mama sew. There are so many fun ideas I could hardly choose. Now all I have to do is cut into all those wonder fabrics I have found. I can't wait to see how everything turns out. I am especially excited about something I am making for some tiny people in my life. They are gonna be so stink'n cute I can hardly wait to see them all dressed up and ready to create themselves. Gotta keep it a secret until I am done though. I feel like one of Santa's elves. So tomorrow it will be time to crank up the Christmas music and create.
