I want to wake up to this

I wish I could have this little guy to wake me up in the morning or tell me about the weather or to get love notes from. why can't I have him?
Today is the Christmas count down. I feel like a slave to retail and really look forward to that day and a half off. Tomorrow we are closing at 3:00 and I am off to wrap presents, make food perhaps, and work on a few last minute projects. Christmas morning will be spent with my sister and BroD. Then i will meet up with some friends and later go out to dinner and to a movie. No biggie. I am excited for a day to relax and do nothing. I want to play games. Maybe work on a little crochet. It should be fun. I hope. Happy Holidays to you all.

New projects

Here are a few things I am trying to make for the holidays. The oven mitt is for my friend Betsy who is coming to visit and has a birthday today. Happy Birthday Betsy.
Every day is crazy around here. Working, then going home to make gifts, staying up late and feeling like I don't want to get up the next day. I am starting to feel sort of sick. I need to go get some EmergenC.
The pic of a table full of goodies on it is from Krafthaus.
Tonight off to make a bunch of cookies for more gifts. I can not wait until the holidays are OVER.
I have so many other things I would like to make and it's nice to make things at a your own pace.

Messy Marvin

My friend Barbara and I were talking about A Christmas Story last night and how cute the characters are. She sent me a link to Messy Marvin. What a cute little kid that guy was.

I also found these today that would make cute gifts for any knitters you might know. There is also a donut option on the cupcake page. Delicious.

Sleepy Saturday

I am really really tired today. Before 11:00 am. I managed to go to the bank, take a shower, get coffee, drop off a birthday present to my friend, go to the grocery store and go to Office Depot all on my walk towards work. I made it to work on time which was amazing but I am seriously having one of those days of pure exhaustion. After work I have to bus it over to Queen Anne/Fremont to Krafthaus to help Barbara break down our table we shared for the craft fair. I am really excited to see it but only wish I could go early to munch on some goodies and perhaps drink a little champagne. Oh well. While trying to keep myself wide awake I decided to look at this and dream of eating all the deliciousness on display.
I also found this site of a fellow Seattle resident and crafter. Her stuff is great. Check it out. I am looking forward to the holidays ending because we are going to do a swap. Yahoo for swappin'.

Are you a Daring Woman?

Looking for a bit of inspiration today and found this. It's nice to read about some of these "Daring Women" to find motivation and keep yourself going. Especially in these busy times.

I have been a busy woman and have not had much time to post anything. Not that my life it that exciting but it's nice to keep up with this. I read blogs more than anything. I did I Heart Rummage on Sunday. It was fun but not the best money maker. However it made me want to still keep up with the crafting. I decided to try and get into Krafthaus here in Seattle this Saturday, Dec. 10th. I am crossing my fingers that I will be able to. It is at 2703 3rd ave N. It is a sale featuring local designers of jewelry, visual art, foods, bath products, accessories, apparel, holiday wares, candles, ceramics, art, glass, bags, paper goods and more. It would be great to do it because I always find those things so motivating. Now my new goal is to diligently work this year on stuff and then go to NYC for the Renegade Craft Fair. I love visiting NYC and my good friend, Betsy lives there. She is a great host and is always fun to hang out with. Now I want to convince her to do it too.
