Once the rush was over for work I got to think about other things, like Christmas for us. By this time I don't have a whole lot of creative energy left, so I'm happy to support other artisans for that. New this year is a hand painted ceramic nativity set from Etsy.
And a vintage Putz village.
And this darling Tyrolean-style coat which I got at a thrift store years ago and is finally the right size.
Birthday cupcakes and the Christmas program at school before break.
|Last-minute teacher gifts|
And then it was the week of Christmas...
|Dominoes, a Hussey family tradition|
And then finally I got a creative impulse, so I painted this tree on Olivia's wall while she had a sleepover at Grandma's house...
...and worked on the quilt for her bed.
...and we made handprint ornaments.
On Christmas Eve we got our first snow of the season!
