29. Music – I created a tape.ly mixtape with just a few of my faves.
30. Completing something to the finality of it. Sticking with it and finishing!! Even if it’s a few days late I was grateful for 30 days! BOOM
I will see you all sometime in 2014. You’re busy with preparations and plans, and I have a list of handmade and homemade that I’ll be working on. Sea Salt Caramels, Orange Marmalade, Granola, Strawberry Jam, Chocolate Truffles, Toffee, Peanut Brittle, Felt ball necklaces, tiny 3-dimensional boxes of winter, a Christmas card photo of the family, festive package wrapping…
Sending you all Happy Holiday Wishes!!
Have I already mentioned this one? ; ) It can’t be helped!
On sunny days I love to close my eyes and tilt my head toward the sun. The golden, warm glow filters through my eyelids and spreads throughout my body in the most glorious way. Try it.
I’ve been playing with wool roving and yarn! I saw some beautiful felt and yarn necklaces in Indie Lab’s shop. I couldn’t justify purchasing one, because of all the wool and yarn I have in my stash. Make your own, or head on over to her shop. These seem like the perfect fall/winter accessory!
It has been an interesting, dramatic, life-changing year all the way around. Through a series of unfortunate events I am digging my new role as grandma! Yep, that’s right we are grandparents. So today I would like to introduce you to little Miss Emery! From the first minute I got to spend time with her it was as if she was already written on my heart. Those big brown eyes, that fuzzy head, her smiles, coos, and giggles all add up to one sweet sugar dumpling. This could be a post about mistake-making, parenting, heart-break, strength, courage, compassion, circling the wagons, praying, crying, acceptance, and love. Which of course it is, but without a lot of words…
Marshall is a great dad!
And it gave me a reason to make these soft crocheted balls for little Miss Emery! (I did not add the cross-stitch, I just used different color yarn to make the stripes.)
