Inspired

Hi.
Well then, I guess I am back.
After posting about the Library sale (which was a huge, delicious success that I am still not over) I realized how much I miss this bloggy land. I have missed sharing stuff with other crazy crafting, baking, knitting, women.

Each morning I wake up and tell myself I am NOT going to craft. My back is feeling the effects of all I have been doing.
Like making these.
Oh, and these.
I can not even get into the cookie baking. My freezer is full, so if you are on the cookie list this, be prepared!




I saw this photo, and knew I had to make one.
An Advent Calender has been on my list since I have had kids. I wanted to do something really easy, but felt uninspired.
I just love to knock off Pottery Barn.



I had a canvas, painted it chocolate brown and cut 24 rectangles from card stock, wrote the number at the top and tacked the ornaments on using a pearl pin which I cut in half.

Instant gratification!

I am so happy you are back! I was keeping my fingers crossed (which made typing hard). Your advent is adorable. DH and I have been trying to figure out a good advent option and have yet to find the perfect one.

HOORAY!! So happy to have you back here, I have been missing your creative, inspiration! Now you have motivated me to get back to my little blog, it was fun, I think you can get burned out and then life gets so busy that it is difficult to make time to do it. I always love to see what you come up with, I imagine you in your cozy beautiful house with your babes and Frank, furiously whipping up treats, meals, ornaments and crafts and it makes me feel very, very happy. I am so grateful that you are living this life, especially having known you since we were little girls. I am always so proud of and inspired by you. Thank you for coming back here to share your life!! XOXO
