I hope you all had a great holiday!  I did!  I've been so busy that I inadvertently took a little break from the internet, but I'm looking forward to catching up with what you guys have been up to and I can't wait to share what I've been doing as well!

Can you believe it's already New Year's Eve?  This year seemed to have flown by!  It was a good year though.  But instead of reflecting on the past year, I think I just want to look forward!

I have lots of crafting planned for this coming year.  For Christmas I got a mini table top lathe, so I'm very excited to play with it!  Turning wood on a smaller scale opens up more possibilities...

And have you guys heard of Project Life?  I've been eyeing it for awhile, and just bought some of the components with some Amazon.com gift cards.  I used to scrapbook a lot, but since I started blogging and discovered how addicting it is to make photo books on Blurb, I've gotten away from scrapbooking with physical paper and prints.  This Project Life system seems to be a quick and easy way to scrap, and will hopefully make me print more photos and do some journaling.  I'm hoping it will also make me take more photos of people!

I also have several projects of my own that I'd like to get back to. When holidays and birthdays come around I drop things I'm making for myself, so it'll be nice to get a little selfish about my crafting!  Does that sound bad?

What about you guys?  Do you have any New Year's resolutions or crafty plans?

It's starting to look a little more wintery here!  I like it!  It helps me get in the Christmas mood, which I need since I'm knee-deep in Christmas crafting!!

How are you guys doing?  Are you busy with holiday preparations?

Hope you guys are enjoying the spirit of the season!

Giving Thanks

Untitled

Every year I get a little more nervous for Thanksgiving because it seems like the Christmas shopping sales start earlier and earlier. I think I saw Christmas decorations in the stores before it was even Halloween!  Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas, but I also love Thanksgiving because of it's simplicity; there is no need for gifts or extravagant decorations.  It's nice just getting together with friends and family for good food, good company and being thankful for having them in your life... having what really matters.  Anyways, today I'm sharing photos from our simple little thanksgiving.
