What I have to have to admit though, is that since my motivation from sewing has waned, I have gotten quite a bit of preparations done for the holiday. My shopping is started, my tree is up, my stockings are hung, the outside of my house is decorated, and the date and menu are set for my 8th Annual Holiday Baking Bonanza (I gift my friends homemade Christmas candies each year). The weather is turning colder here in the Big D, I have actually found a station I like on Pandora that plays my kind of Christmas music, my travel plans are finalized for Houston and plane tickets purchased for my trip home to Kansas to be there just in time for Chrsitmas Eve.
For the next four weeks I am going to slow down, enjoy and be thankful for every single minute. My husband and I are truly fortunate and we plan on enjoying every minute of the holiday with our family.
And speaking of family, I wanted to get back to sharing my handmade purchases for the holiday and today I am sharing two prints I have purchased from two different shops on Etsy.
First, I love this Olive Tree watercolor print from a fantastic etsy shop called JellyBeans. All of her items are wonderful and I almost ordered several othe prints for myself. This one I ordered for my mother-in-law and I think it will go perfectly in her new kitchen workspace and pantry area.
This one I purchased from a shop called How Fab Designs which I found by "pouncing" on etsy. (have you "pounced" before?) My sister-in-law just recently moved into her
very first condo and I think this will go perfectly in her kitchen.
Do I even have to mention that she loves champagne?
Have you purchased or made any really great gifts that you just know the recipient will love?
I would love to hear about them!
