I miss blogging...

...but oh my, there are not enough hours in the day right now. I know everybody is feeling that way - I've been painting up a storm (hopefully a snow storm) - for the shop and for friends and for teacher gifts and for classmates - well, you know how it is. But I'm having lots of fun - wish I could share with each of you.
Jus' wanted to share this quick note - I think I shared this with you last year - but y'all forgive my repeat. All my handpainted glass ornaments I put in my polka dot boxes - it's a fun way to give them plus an easy way to store them from year to year. So if you have an ornament or any sweet gift and are in need of a fun way to dress it up - jus' paint your box. A few polka dots, a swirl or two and some pretty ribbon - simple grosgrain works great.
Cute, Simple, Handmade, Fun to give!
Happy baking, shopping, wrapping, decorating or whatever you have left to do!
Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas everybody!
Cathy

Merry Christmas to you too! Do you think your Pa paw would have any time to cut me a piece of plywood 18 x 20 inches? I really need to get an electric saw! HA! I'd cut my arm off!

Love it, so cute! 24 hours in a day is not enough time for crafters! Have a nice weekend. They have mentioned snow for Sunday, so we may have a white Christmas!
