Shopping, tweaking, and crafting…sorta

We are having a pretty good Sunday here. The “monster” snow storm missed us completely. My brother in Virginia was not so lucky. They got over a foot of snow. This was the most snow in that area in over 15 years. smile_omg


We went out this morning to tackle the crowds once again for more Christmas shopping. I am making no- sew fleece blankets for my daughters and my mother-in-law. (This is the crafting….sorta part of the title) Of course, the procrastinator that I am, this was a last minute idea. So I  had to get up early and get to Joann Fabrics first thing. They had their fleece 50% off. I’m making them throw size just big enough to cuddle up on the couch with. They are just so warm and cuddly!  I hope they like them. I know I would much rather have a gift someone took the time and patience to make especially for me. It means so much more than anything store bought, no matter what the price, Don’t you agree?


I have a few more pics to share. I just got the most awesome stocking holder from Palmer Hills Primitives. I just love how it turned out.   

Ed and Kim do awesome work. If you haven’t visited their prim shoppe, stop in. You’ll be glad you did.

And last but not least, I just have to show you my little grandson Jayden. He is almost 3 months old and the most adorable little boy. jaydenandsanta-2009What a face, huh?  He’s a really good boy and loves his swing. He has one in almost every room of the house. I don’t think he’s slept in his crib yet. He has to be moving constantly. LOL


I started this post this afternoon and it’s after 8 now and am just now finishing it. I did get one blanket finished ~~ now two more to go.  I will try and get a photo up before I wrap it. It turned out pretty good considering it was my first one.


~~~Have a nice evening everyone~~~
