Spirit Of Christmas Celebration

I wanted to let you all know about the OFG Etsy team Spirit Of Christmas Celebration! This starts today and goes through December 16th. Go to Etsy and type  SOCOFG in search to see all the wonderful Christmas items made by many talented members of the OFG team.

 
In other news.. I am knee deep in a craft room mess! I have no organization in there at all and it is effecting my productivity. My sweet hubby is installing some lower and upper cabinetry in my hobby room and is badly needed. I am giddy with excitment as the possibility of some sort of remedy to the Chaos. Until it is all put away it is a jumbled up mess, so I am not getting a lot done now, but am itching to get working on my next pattern! I wish I had taken a before picture, but will surely post pictures here when it is done.
 
I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving, if you ate so much you thought you may pop, then it was a success. I am thankful for the day spent eating well and spending time with family.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Thanksgiving

I want to pop in here and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I also want to congratulate Kim of Valley Primitives on winning all those ornaments in the giveaway!
 
As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we're poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.
We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a store,
We're wealthy, when push comes to shove.
So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you've got;
Realize it's a lot,
And you'll make all your cares go away.

I will surely miss my family and friends tomorrow, but am grateful for the family I will spend Thanksgiving with. Since 2007 we no longer live around my parents, brother, older son and some great friends I left behind, so holidays have changed for me a lot! I have fond memories of earlier days, I can see the gatherings, the smell of turkey the laughter and all the fuss over dinner! Over the years some pass on, move on or move away, the scenery and holidays changes as life goes on. I miss those days but also relish the new memories to be made in the here and now.

 I will admit, I can be bad about letting the problems of the day cloud my vision, so much so that I no longer can see the through the thorns to see the lovely bouguets that are actually gathering in the day. At the end of the day I thought was so problematic, I stopped and asked myself what beautiful things of the day I had missed, what bouguets had been gathered that I didn't even see. I started thinking about the things I could be thankful for; low and behold I had a lovely bunch of  flowers smiling at me amongst the thorns! I am not talking about big obvious things really, it could be a snuggle from the dog = 1 flower for the bouguet, a kind word, blue sky, warm bed, a special hug... one here and three there in the end equals one lovely bunch. I hope you take a look and see the the lovely things of today and know we all have so much to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving
Jody

Post Card freebies

I am offering a free download to all who may be interested. This is for a set of 4 holiday postcards done with vintage images. The size of the postcards is 3.5" x 5". Print them on cardstock and set your printer to high quality for best results. Click on the picture to get the download.

Hint: on pictures like these I like to take clear scotch brand glue, the one that has the double ends. I use the end that has the sponge like applicator and dab glue here and there and sprinkle fine glass glitter or glamour dust on the glue before it dries. I love adding some shimmer to these festive pictures, give  it a try!

 
Thanks to all who have signed up so far for the ornament giveaway! the response has been wonderful. I am already envious of the winner!
 
my latest ornament pattern is available now, click on the picture of it on my left sidebar to purchase.
 
I am not sure how we are almost upon Thanksgiving, but low and behold it is almost here! I wish the years would slow down some, but they are just speeding up...YIKES!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

November PFATT offerings

Hello ladies,

I have to apologize for being gone so long from blogging, I do think the winters blues are getting me! I struggle to find all the time and energy I need to get things done and stay organized! What a dream it would be to actually get done what my mind's eye sees me doing.... ah one can only dream. I talk about Winter, but the full winter's chill has not hit here where I live yet, there are days it actually has warmth to the sun yet. The plants don't know wether to bloom again or die.

For those of you who buy my patterns,  I do have more Christmas ideas floating around in my head and will have something new to offer hopefully soon.

Here is what I will have to offer on Pfatt Marketplace on November 10th. I am not taking early sales so take note of the date. The first emails that show up in my inbox requesting my items will be served first! I have two snow girls made from my latest (Crystal) pattern and another snowman made from my prim winter friends pattern to offer.

This little gal is holding a fake cupcake and wearing holiday stripes.
 
You all have seen Crystal, well she is for sale this month as well! She holds a LED battery operated prim taper candle that was encrusted with german glass glitter. Both these snow girls are 18" tall.
 
This snowman is 14" tall and can be hung on the tree or wall. He can also be tucked into any corner or shelf as well. He is ready for the next winters storm with his shovel!


My friend LeeAnn Kress of charmed confections was nice enough to send me this lovely set of her handmade cupcakes! Aren't they the sweetest.... she does such a great job, they are done to perfection and the little adornments on them could not be cuter. The little candy canes and candies are actually clay which boggled my mine, they are sooooo tiny. Check out LeeAnns blog http://charmedconfections.blogspot.com/ and don't forget to check out her pfatt marketplace page this month for what is sure to be an adorable new creation. Her link on pfatt is also Charmed Confections.

I wish you all a wonderful day and happy creating!
