"MERRY CHRISTMAS" LOTS TO SHARE !!

A VINTAGE CARD I MADE INTO GLITTERED WALL ART.
I SANG IN OUR ANNUAL CHRISTMAS WOMEN'S CHOIR
AT CHURCH. I TRULY FELT THE "TRUE" MEANING OF CHRISTMAS. WE SANG 2 EVENINGS AND DESPITE I HAD COME DOWN WITH A COLD
AND CONGESTION I WAS ABLE TO SING. I FELT AN "ANGEL" WAS BACKING ME UP.


A VINTAGE WREATH I MADE OUT OF ALL MY PURCHASE FROM
THRIFT STORES, YARD SALES AND ANTIQUE STORES. IT TURNED
OUT TO BE QUITE FESTIVE.
I MADE A "SNOW GLOBE" OUT OF A JAR AND PUT A LITTLE
CHRISTMAS SCENE INSIDE OF IT.
A VINTAGE CARD MY SWEET SISTER, JANINE, GAVE ME AND
I MADE IT INTO CHRISTMAS ART.

The days have gone fast and I have been busy creating in my craft/scrap room since
October.... I have made lots of messes and have glitter everywhere but, It really helped put
me into the christmas spirit... I have included in this post some things I have made... I have
more to share later... I am getting ready to go to Maui, Hawaii for 8 days to visit my daughter
Lauren. We are leaving tomorrow.. I am sooo excited !!! My daughter Brooke and husband
bobby and grandson Parker are going.. I am leaving my 4 other children and home with my
hubby, kevin.... I feel lucky and blessed to be able to go.. I have never been to Hawaii... I love
to travel so I am very excited to go there.... I have stuff to share that I made for the SWAPS
that I am in but, my swap partners have not received their stuff so, I will post later.... I had
a great time creating christmas and I will have to wait to post after I get back which is the 14th.
I know I will have lots of Hawaii photos to share..... Until then, Enjoy each day, be safe and
remember the reason we celebrate this christmas season... I know that when I put it in to
perspective that I don't get overwhelmed with what really doesn't matter... Try a new tradition,
watch the old christmas shows, read christmas stories, take a walk to see the neighbor's lights,
bake cookies, heart attack someone's home, remember the widow and old folks, be courteous,
generous and grateful..... MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU!!!!

All of your crafting is AMAZING!!! You are so amazing to me. It all just gets more and more incredible!!! Hope you're having fun in Hawaii...i wanna go get hot chocolate when you get back because even though it's toasty warm where you are...it's chilly here at home.
