37 Days

Saw this post today, and had to share.  There are lots of great suggestions on ways to enjoy the holiday season. I'm looking for ways to simplify this year and liked all of these ideas.

38 Days

My daughter loves making Christmas presents and decor almost as much as I do. One of her friends came over to make a few fun projects. They made Styrofoam Christmas trees, snowflakes, and homemade window clings. Here's a sampling of their projects.

42 Days to go...

Where does the time go?  It seems like we were getting ready for fall and Halloween, and now it's two weeks until Thanksgiving and it's getting close to Christmas.  I am working on several commission pieces and new craft items that I hope to share with all of you this weekend.  Lots of fun and lots to do!

With all the busyness of life, it's easy to get caught up in the details of the holidays.  Trying to have the perfectly decorated home, perfect Christmas card, and most delectable food can be exhausting and cause us to dread the holidays instead of cherish them.

I try to read the devotions from this website daily, but especially during Advent.  It's www.d365.org and it has wonderful daily devotions.  I make myself stop and take the time during the holidays to read and contemplate the scripture readings before going back out into the world.

So, I hope that you and I will take the time to refocus on what's important during the holidays and every day.
