Tattered and timeworn treasures of the heart....

Saturday, December 26, 2009

Hello all you sweet bloggers! I hope your Christmas was wonderful. We had some icy weather here which changed some plans. Some of my family were not able to make it to the festivities due to the nasty weather. I am hoping the weather holds out and that they will be able to visit over New Years.

I found it hard to get into the "spirit" of things this year for some reason. Maybe it is all the "commercialism" Everyone seems to have lost the feeling of the true meaning of "CHRISTmas"

I didn't put up a big tree this year, only a couple small ones... I didn't get all the things done that I wanted to..... I had started on some ornaments and just didn't get around to finishing them.....maybe I will finish them for next year. I put off shopping and wrapping until the last minute......That's how my Christmas went this year. Bad weather even prevented us from going to Christmas Eve services at our church.

Well, one good thing is that I am on vacation all next week. I am hoping to get a few things organized in my office/craft room. Even if I wanted to create something, it would take me all afternoon to find everything I need. My room is very small and I do not have storage space, so everything gets jammed into a small closet with shelves that my husband built for me. Maybe that means that I should start weeding out. (that would be difficult for me to do)....maybe Mike is right, and I am a Pack Rat and a hoarder (but, so is he for that matter).

How do you like my new background and header? I felt it was time for a change again and I cleaned it up a bit. (kind of like rearranging furniture).........
