Happy New Year's Eve!

Wow, budda bing budda bam, and yet another year just flew past.

Things have been crazy and the days escape me before I remember them beginning. I guess that's the standard refrain of parent with multiple kids. I have only 3, but sometimes they feel like 20! LOL!

All is quiet here. It was a busy year for us, plenty of things done and seen, plenty of new experiences, plenty of tears and plenty of laughter. But all is good. FB seems to have taken over my blogging time, and I'm hoping to make some changes on that front this year. Hoping to get more time with the kids as always and hoping to generally make progress on some of my goals as almost everyone is planning their New Years Resolutions!

We had a nice quiet holiday at home this year, our first alone as a family of 5. The littlest seemed to enjoy the festivities with a look of puzzlement. A good time was had by all!

Moody Monday

Just random work from the weekend. It's an old art form, but makes neat new things, and inspires creativity!

It's a chilly cold morning here in the ??Sunny?? South - with actual snow on the ground. But the focal point of my photo is the rainbow of colours.

Before working hurriedly away on Christmas gifts that suddenly and mysteriously came due (not like I had the whole year to get 'em movin!) .... I had started working on sweater for the littlest. A webfriend posted pics of an adorable little sweater she had made, and well I just had to try it. Well, here is the finished project!

We added cute little crayon buttons from my stash - and she insists on running around with it on. Gotta love a little ego boosting! LOL!

Anyway here is a link to the pattern just in case you're inspired! I adjusted it and worked tighter stitches than the pattern called for so I'd have a dense warm sweater for the cold weather!

Finding the Joy (Dec 3)

This week:
The holidays are fast approaching and I find myself rather unprepared. I've had a tough time focusing on the holidays this year (well for many years) though I'm not sure why its just not my thing I guess... so I've found peace this year and will celebrate my way! :)

* Finding peace with the holiday season and feeling free to celebrate it my way!

* My cute little friend above - is the start of my new holiday decor! :)

* A week of happy caroling by happy children.

* A week of productive crafting, and more ideas than I have time to make! LOL!

* Two of my girls have decided to try out one of my hobbies! :)

So what made you smile this week?
