I hope you had a relaxed and merry holiday season. I have been enjoying the post holiday calm immensely. The new year was quietly rung in while watching movies, in bed with some new yarn and fabrics. Perfect.

I've added the first batch of new goodies to the shop. There is much more to come as I sort through the craft sale leftovers and work on new projects, like hand sewn wool and linen mushrooms.

Today was spent deconstructing our Christmas wonderland. I'm sad to see it go but I know that it will hardly seem like a year has gone by when we bring it all out again. The house looks so magical and festive with the decorations up. It takes me a few days to adjust to the "plainness" of our everyday decor.

The Finish Line

Craft Wonderland is today!
I'll be there so stop by and say hello if you're in the neighborhood.
111 NE 11th

After today, I'm all yours. I'll try to post regularly and get those
house photos up and I'll even do another shop update. Yippee!

Oh and the winning commenter numbers are 3 and 8. Kim and Jessica send me your addresses and I'll get your treats off in the mail this week.

Happy 9 days until Christmas!

Nearing the Finish

Of the insane work season, that is. We have been utterly consumed with the filling of wholesale orders for Robot Candy. I haven't had any time for the crafting that I love, the sewing, knitting and crochet. I am very much looking forward to January and the relaxed creative time it holds. I did find time to get these little penguin friends sewn up. They are made with the 100% wool felt I love so much. I've got a shop update planned for Monday at 12 noon, it will be small but there will be some penguins for sure.

We did manage to get a tree and all the decorations up. There has been non stop Christmas music playing and we even put together two volumes of a Christmas music mix for our friends and family. It's a good one, too. In fact, I think it's time for and definitely the season for another fun giveaway...leave me a comment with your most and least favorite thing about the holidays. My favorite thing is decorating and my least favorite is probably the god forsaken traffic. I'll include a Christmas cd and some other holiday lovelies for two lucky winners.

I was tagged by Jessica for 10 weird or little known things about me. Here goes:
1:: I love hippos and always have. I really like that they will eat people who venture too close.
2:: I grew up in a cult-like church called the World Wide Church of God, we didn't celebrate Christmas, Halloween or celebrate birthdays. Pretty. Awesome.
3:: I will not mix types of pasta. Which makes it inconvenient for using up those last bits
4:: I have never seen Star Wars and dislike all things sci-fi
5:: I don't like any of the Peanuts holiday specials, I know, it's very unAmerican
6:: I think Justin Timberlake is super cute
7:: I hate Sushi and most seafood. The cult-church also forbade the eating of pork and shellfish but I do like pork
8:: I'm 1/4 Mexican
9:: I have a scar on my chin from where I hit it on the edge of the counter trying to get to the cookie jar when I was 3
10:: I hate to fly, and don't really like to travel in general.

I'm going to sprint to the coaster finish line, we've got 7 orders to go, I think I can do it.
Next post will be a tour of the Christmas decor, hooray!
