Aren't the holidays so crazy??? I find my self running around doing so many things that it's hard to slow down and really enjoy the holiday season. I feel like I blinked and Halloween and Thanksgiving just flew by. I had so many more craft projects I wanted to work on, so many more things to do, and now it's almost Christmas! There is so much to do, presents to buy, family to visit, and then my kids get hit with the flu! It has been so crazy I tell you!
Last night we finally decorated our Christmas tree. I love decorating the tree. It is one of my favorite things that we do as a family. We have wonderful Christmas music playing and cookies in the oven. The kids are so sweet as they get out our fun and funky ornaments and laugh about who made them or what they represent. I watch our little 1 1/2 year old put 10 ornaments on the same branch and she was so proud of herself!!! She would do a little dance every time she got a new ornament on. It was pure Christmas magic. I was watching our oldest who is now 6 standing on a chair to put some up high and kept thinking, where did the time go? She is growing up so fast. I know life is crazy and having lots of little kids can be challenging, but I wouldn't trade it! I know these are the moments I will treasure for the rest of my life.
So what have you been up to lately?
I have been making a million bows!! Here is a big stack of ribbon I was working on while watching the Artsy Ornaments class. This class has really been amazing this year. I have loved getting to know so many different artist and learning from their different styles. I know I'll only have time to make a few artsy ornaments, but after I watch each video I think, "ok, I've got to make that one too!!!" These teachers are all so talented.
The weather has been getting cold here in Colorado. We got our decorations out and have been trying to get our Christmas shopping done!! Only 20 more days to go!
So my awesome friend Becky and I are throwing a jujuB party this week. We used to run a little crafty business together called jujuB, where we made and sold bows, jewelry, headbands, and other fun girlie stuff! Since we always have so much fun together we decided to get together again and throw a holiday party. I'm so excited to share a sneak peak of what we have been working!!! And don't worry I'll be opening my Etsy store soon, so you can all get in on the action!
