Just Can't Stop Being Busy ..

Hello my dear friends,

not only have I just decluttered and reorganized our garage and basement storage room once again this past week but I have also given our basement stairs the first sanding as well. Remember last year I painted my living, dining room and kitchen I think it was 10 days before Christmas. I have taken a lot of things and donated them to our local Goodwill store and a still have two bags of winter clothes for one of the town's woman's shelters that I still need to take there. I have finally mailed my last Christmas mail and I hope I haven't forgotten anyone this year. And to top everything off I am busy with being creative and of course I am working on more than one thing ~ nothing new there really. It is basically non stop for me right now but I enjoying it so much.

First I made many little crochet snowflakes for a very dear friend and now I am working on a few other things.

 A lot of you have seen my poinsettia Christmas stockings that I had made from vintage woolen blankets which I had felted. This is my cream colored one. A few days ago, whilst tidying my studio I found some left over pieces of the cream blanket and was wondering what I could do with them. I do love the way my poinsettias look so I am going to go with that thought and I am working on a few more of them. I am hoping that I will be able to share what I used them for in the next few days.

I am also working with these ...

... vintage little wooden Monopoly houses. They are they cutest!

This little nativity set it also on my worktable.
 It is one of my church sale findings and so lovely.

And last but not least ...

... I am busy creating more of my little pearl snowmen. Right now I am making them in two sizes and can't wait to use them in my creations.

I know Christmas is almost here and will then quickly gone again but it doesn't mean that you can't be creative for it right until the last minute and even afterwards. Don't forget there is always next year. So don't stop being creative for Christmas just yet my dear friends, I won't for sure.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. I can't wait to see these finished creations especially the Monopoly houses as I have some plastic castles and cottages in my stash from a Disney set and have been wondering what to do with them. Funny how the creativity juices flow this time of year. Just came up with another project a few minutes ago myself. Have a great day!!

  2. Once again you hold my interest....

  3. I was so happy when I managed to get my sewing projects for Christmas done by the first of the month. So tell me why I am now hauling fabric out of my stash and creating MORE??

  4. Soo sweet! What a great post. I am, with the others, hoping to see these projects in their completion! Thanks for sharing. ~Karen O

  5. You are such an inspiration, Karen. What you accomplish in a day just astounds me. Wish I could be more like you.

    Merry, merry!
