I went to my quilt guild christmas luncheon today and then went shopping with my girls for a little while this afternoon. I have both the girls finished, but the boys and their father... I just dont know what to get for them. I bought them clothes so far, but how boring is that. Bethany is getting the biggest surprise this year. Something she has always wanted. Cant say what it is.. just incase she reads this! I have it hiding in my craft room, which she wont be allowed in til Christmas morning. I hope she likes it. cant wait to show you what it is!
These two pictures above are things I made for a couple swaps I was in. The top one, the snow ball doll was made for the altered christmas doll swap hosted by Sandy of sandyscreations. I hope my partner recieved her already and this doesnt spoil her surprise. And the one above is from the Christoween swap hosted by ...
I really love how both of these turned out.. I hope my partners do too!
The bears below were made for someone that just lost her husband. Made out of his shirts. I hope they are loved by whoever recieves them. Im working on 5 elves that will be dressed in someone elses husbands clothing as well.
I have so many pictures to take of things I've recieved lately and of my decorated house. Now that my computer is home, I'll be able to upload my pics again! yippee!
Tomorrow is my daughter Bethanys 24th birthday. She and I are going to see Jennifer in the musical production of scrooge. Jen is playing the part of Belle, the woman Scrooge was in love with when he was young. HOpefully I will be able to take pics and maybe video part of one of the scenes she's in.
I've been trying to catch up with you all.. not an easy feat! Some of you are very prolific! I'm so impressed by everyones Christmas decorations and art work.. there is sooo much inspiration out here.. it just amazes me. And, I'm expecting so many wonderful packages in the mail with in the next week or so.. Elves from my elf partners.. I recieved one yesterday.. OMG.. thats all I can say.. wait till you see them all.. Everyone who joined this swap is super talented. I've got Elizabeths tag book coming.. cant wait.. ornie swaps on the way.. altered doll.. christoween doll.. and I won a copy of blissful blogging from the awesome happylovesrosie! So I've got lots to look forward to!
OK.. I ve rambled on long enough.. is anyone still with me? one more thing.. I do think that Frannie is probably pregnant. Remember they are not related, the girls I work with keep saying that I'll have mutant kittens.. theyre just playing.. but I purposely got them unrelated so if I decided to, that we could have kittens. I just hadnt planned on it being quite so soon! Frannie was born the last week in march. So she will be about 10 months old when she has them.
gotta run.. I'm going to make something special to do a christmas giveaway with! hopefully will post about it tomorrow.
