Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...and Christmas Tree...and...

It's been such a nice Thanksgiving weekend!  God was dipping out blessings and shakin' them all over our family!  We ate too much, and we had fun together!  We had a small crew putting up the Christmas tree this year, but we still got it done. Here's the family tree with lots of different ornaments -

We did a lodge look in one bedroom - I wish you could see the deer horns better because they look pretty cool!

We put a small tree in the front window.  It still needs some work!

And my little prim tree in the craftroom... a few more toys and it should be done.

Then there's the giant tree standing in our bedroom with no decorations.  I just needed one more day off! 

I also took a little stroll down Memory Lane today, as I dragged out the Santas that aren't already out all year(hehehe).  I got this old fella out.  He's the very first Santa I ever sculpted!  He makes me laugh with his bushy hair, his flat little fingers, and his slightly burned nose that makes him look as if he's been taking a little nip, but he also makes me smile.

If it weren't for this jolly, old soul, I wouldn't be creating Santas today.  It's nice to stroll down Memory Lane now and then.  It makes me appreciate all God's allowed me to do in my life.

Santa's Smilin'!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Sunday!  Mine has been full of blessings as always.  I finished up the sculpted gourd Santa this evening, and he's a happy little fella!  He's just found his way onto Sherry's Cabin Etsy Shop, and he's hoping to have some friends join him before next weekend.

A word for your Thanksgiving week-
Psalm 100:4  Enter His gates with thanksgiving, And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name.

The Weather Outside is Frightful, but Santa's so Delightful...

Ok, so that's a silly title, but I've got Christmas music on the brain!  Santa has gotten a few more features since the last post, and he's almost ready for a little paint.  Oh, by the way, the weather outside is frightful!  I'm a fair weather elf, and it's COLD outside!

Just wanted to share a little work-in-progress with you!  God, thank you for another awesome day!  Night all!

Sleigh Bells Ring and Time Flies!

Wow, it's already November, and I haven't been a good blogger.  Sorry, folks.  School has been a whirlwind, but it's a good year!  I'm hanging on for the ride!  I've reworked my evening schedule since time changed this weekend (it's dark out there, so I can now come inside without feeling guilty!), and the sleigh bells are filling the craft room!  This fun little guy popped out of nowhere last night...

Sorry for the poor lighting, but it's still dark outside this morning!  I just had to get a post in before I scooted off to work!  I'm not sure where he's headed, but he seems to be happy about the journey!  Come to think of it, that's the way we all ought to take the day.  God let us get up this morning-it's a good day.  Walk with Him today and delight in the journey.
