Taking Time Out to Say Thank You

Danish woven paper hearts - for summer!

It is no secret - at least to any of my friends - I do love the Winter Holiday Season!

Most of you must understand or you most likely wouldn't be here! But I also know some of my readers probably think I am nuts!

Earlier this year, my dear friend TeriC and I shared a conversation about the whole Christmas and Winter Holiday thing and I thought I would share some of my thoughts with you as well.

Happy Third Blogiversary To Me Tralalalalalala...


Father Christmas Dolls I put out every year on November 1.  Hand made gifts from Diane.

Three whole years! Three years since my sweet daughter - most of you know her as Sister Diane at Craftypod - finally succeeded in talking me into writing a blog.
