so much hustle and bustle! finally down to the last weekend before christmas! It'll be a busy one. I feel like Ive neglected all my bloggy pals the past few weeks.. all that bear making took up all my play time. but I got them all finished.. 36 bears and 22 santa stars. Thankful for the orders... but not wanting to make another bear for a while! LOL! Ive done NO christmas crafting... but I'm hoping to make a little something this weekend. I had wanted to do a christmas giveaway... but, obviously that wont be happening! LOL!
The mail lady has been dropping packages off here right and left. Mostly things I've ordered on line, but also some really fun things too. I particiapated in Ericas christmas swap and my partner was Susan Clayton. she definitely spoiled me!
check out all this sweet christmasy stuff. It was all packed neatly into that delightful box above. You can see Frannie pants was excited to help me open and unpack the box! (shes a nosey little girl! lol!)
Susan made some really cute little christmasy things for me.
check out the rag wreath above with the vintage cookie cutter.. and look at all the stuff in the pic below that was packed into that box! Ive eaten about half that bag of candy already! Thank you so much susan for the wonderful package of christmas treats! I hope you like the things I sent you as well... I mailed with out taking a pic so I cant post a pic.
My friend Sandy Camarda sent me a little package the other day too and this cute cute cute little garland was tucked into it. I just love it! But impossible to get a good pic so you can see just how darling it really is.
And another fun package I received came all the way from England. I won this fountain pen on Happy Loves Rosie's blog. I havent tried it out yet.. but I sure am looking forward to using it. I LOVE to write with fountain pens. makes you want to use your very best handwriting!
And in these days of computers.. my handwriting has suffered terrible. When I find myself writing anything by hand, it seems that Im in a hurry and just scribbling something down!
OK.. Ive got to get ready for work... I shall return this weekend to do some real true blog hopping! This next week is going to fly by girls. but Im looking forward to all the baking and wrapping and last minute things I can do now without bear making on my brain!
Happy day my friends!. toodles for now!
