We had the best Thanksgiving EVER! Because it snowed! A lot! We rarely get snow here and even more rare is snow you can play in.(sticky snow) We all had so much fun playing in it. My 8 yr old son said this while we were driving "look mom a real snow man made of snow and everything" I said"what did you think they were made of?"(yes I am a bit of a smart ass.) He said "I have only seen plastic ones!" It was very cute. So I have totally been in a Christmas mood. I have been crafting and decorating. So much fun! My ETSY store http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5141120 is very full so stop by for Christmas goodies!

I'm getting my booth ready for Christmas. Here are some pics. I have a long way to go still. I do like how my cards in the metal feed trough turned out. I added moss and pine cones to it and put the cards on top. Very woodsy.

Make everyday magic is the slogan of my ETSY shop and how I try to live. Today I really felt that. I had one of my "really good" art days. Ideas just came pouring out. I am falling in love with banners, garlands, and hangy things. Most of the time you would see these types of things at parties or special events. I like to make them for your every day life. I would hope someone would put them up in there home and be reminded how special everyday can be, not just for certain occasions. I really love making banners for new babies of friends and family. So I hope you look for a little magic in your day today!

I have always wanted to spend Christmas in a cabin in the woods. I have not got the chance yet so I thought I would create something that had that feeling to it. So I introduce my Christmas in the woods collection. You can find it on ETSY. I will adding more as we get closer to Christmas.

I have lots more Natural Museum Type tags to sell. I am even starting a natural museum Christmas collection. It will have birds, deer, bears, pine trees, and more! Right now I have cards and tags. I just have not listed them yet. I really love the way they turned out. What kind of natural antique looking items would you like to see?

I have been so busy lately preparing for Christmas sales that I thought I would take a break and have some fun. I added a hat and sign to this little guy. The sign says "believe" to remind me to believe in myself. I will be adding new items to my Etsy store. It was in the high 80s to day!!!! I cant wait for cool weather. Tomorrow is supposed to be 30 degrees cooler than today. I cant wait!
