Good Morning!

Bonjour, salut!

The babe is sleeping, the tea is warm -- well, almost warm -- the Christmas cards are hanging in the kitchen, the Gilmore Girls are happening, the gingerbread house is cute & I'm wearing one of the first new shirts I've bought in months (which cost $6.99 at Old Navy and is adorable).

Today is feeling like a good day!

What are you all up to this fine Thursday?

It's -15 degrees outside, so I think I'll be staying as housebound as possible, though I do have some Christmassy errands which still need running. We're not doing a huge commercial Christmas this year, aka I'm making most gifts/giving modestly, but I do have a few more things to pick up before the week is through. I also want to do a little more crafting today -- though I can't really mention the crafting details since the recipients might be reading this right now! Hush!

Have you finished your Christmas shopping/making/thrifting/finding/preparing?

I'm so enjoying reading people's holiday posts with good food, and fun DIYs -- my gosh I'm enjoying this time of year! I'm not feeling stressed & things are so much different this year since I'm not turbo pregnant & everything is just a wee bit calmer.

It's a fabulous feeling.

This is exactly how the holidays should feel & I hope you're all feeling the mellow vibe too!

I'm now off to refresh my tea & do a wee bit o' crafting until the babe wakes up from her siesta (though I suppose that is the wrong word to us since I think it more refers to a nap taken in the afternoon). Either way, take care & much love!



PS. I promise to share photos of the gingerbread house soon!
PPS. After Christmas I'll also be sharing some images of the lovely handmade items I purchased for G on Etsy.
PPPS. Yesterday I made my 9th Etsy sale! Ah! SO MUCH LOVE.
PPPPS. Have a most wonderful Thursday!

You are such a delight. I can't wait to take pics of my kids with their etsy Christmas gifts this year. I had so much fun keeping it simple at handmade (as much as we could.)

I am currently waiting for the hubby to get home from the oral surgeon after getting his wisdom teeth taken out today. I look forward to a full day of taking care of my love. :)

Not quite done yet, but mostly done. We're going to be finishing up in the next week-ish. :) We always wait until the last minute.

Oh wisdom teeth, yikes! I'm pretty sure I need to get mine out sometime in the near future, but I'm DEFINITELY avoiding it!

Your post made me laugh out loud with glee. You are such a positive voice! I'm crafting, too! I'm making a felt cover that slips over my kids' art table that will transform it into a woodland meadow -- green felt background is the grass, then I'll add brown felt paths and a blue pond for swimming...on Christmas morning their his and hers dollhouses will be sitting on the table in their respective places in the felt meadow. I'm babbling, but you asked! The only problem: my sewing machine is in my freezing cold craft room at the back of the house. I'm wearing wool gloves, a wool scarf and a wool hat INSIDE! With a blanket around my shoulders! Have a cuppa for me, I'm in too much of a hurry to make tea, I have to go pick up my little guys from school in an hour and a half. :)

Oh, Laura, that sounds fantastic! What a lovely handmade gift!
I am so hoping for a sewing machine this year, and then I'll convert the room we don't use aka the room that will someday be our daughter's bedroom, into my crafty love room!
Can't wait ^_^

I love your Thursday! You've brought a smile to my face. :)

I spent my Thursday like this:
(amongst a winter wonderland)
I'm all done my Christmas putting-togetherness ... just a few more handmade goodies to craft up!

I have one more thing to pick up, and my shopping is done. We are having a small christmas this year, but there was still shopping, planning and wrapping to do. Next year, I hope to do more homemade gifts for presents :)
