I have this very sweet and funny friend from flickr that I have been able to meet a couple times! She is soooo SWEET! she and I did a swap together and this is the very adorable snowfriend she made for me! You may know her as "be cheery" on flickr. Jenny makes the cutest little dolls.. and obviously snowmen too! Thank you so much Jenny! XOXO!!
So, I have to tell you that there are little benefits from hosting swaps! and this is one of them! Check out these precious little snowman earrings!! Courtney made them and sent then as a gift!! I LOVE them and will probably wear a pair today!! Thank you so much courtney!
The next few pictures are of the snowmen I made for the swap and for gifts! This first one is needle felted and then glued and glittered.. He turned out kind of cute I thought! He went to my Jenny that I told you about above!
This sweet little one, also needle felted, went to another friend of mine that i did a 1:1 snowman swap with, Amelia.. sweet B. I have to say, I almost kept this one for myself! Hers is on the way, so I cant show you yet!
And this batch of little snow guys, went as gifts to some friends and also to Cassandra and Jolene!
Did you notice the first picture at the top of my post entry? that would be from yesterday, my girls and I were out playing when we stumbled across this old man in a red suit! We were quite taken with his adorableness! I wanted the girls to get their pic taken.. but they convinced me to get in the picture too.. Bethany said that santa was squeezing her pretty tight! ha!!
My shopping is about done.. I will have to go out for a bit this afternoon.. I would like to finish up as i have two orders to start (and finish before christmas!) 8 bears to make and 5 santa ornaments! Plus, I have gifts to make and cookies to bake and a tree to decorate and christmas eve is at my house.. so the house has to be cleaned.. ..... ..... ..... .... oh my.. I need some energy!
My daughter Bethany is diabetic, and she stuck me with her tester yesterday twice and both times my blood sugar was 150ish.. thats not normal for someone who is not diabetic! so I have to say, I'm a bit concerned... so..After the holiday.. I am seriously going to lose weight!!!!!!!!!
So its sunday morning and almost time to go get my christmas tree! yippee! I should start moving things around a bit to make room and then get my shower, so I'm ready when hubby comes back to get me!
have a sweet and blessed week.. remember... the reason for the season... JESUS!
