Finishing things up!




I wanted to show you want I have been finishing. I finally got Dylan's blanket finished and had started some napkin rings for myself for the Christmas holidays. Nutcrackers of course! I thought they turned out quite nice. I was trying to get everything caught up and finished before starting a new project. My mom found a charm the same day she bought me the sampler and said here make me a necklace but you can wait until after Christmas. Well I thought I'd go ahead and make it and give it to her for Christmas! I have already shown you a pic of Dylan's blanket but above is the pics of the napkin rings and the necklace I made for mom. So now that I have finally gotten all my loose ends tied, I can start getting my Valentine Jewelry and Napkin rings started.
I was busy trying to make my mail art that I participate in over at Mj's and came across a prayer that my Grandmother had written sometime in the past obviously around Christmas. I thought I would share it with you also as it is so correct.
"Lord,mist all the glitter and dazzle. The endless shopping and rushing about.
Baking the turkey and cookies and pies and becoming cross and weary no doubt.
Don't let us lose sight of the reason why we celebrate this glorious day each
year. Help us to pause and honor Jesus birth and bring his wonderful presence
near! Amen
Merry Christmas! Blessings, Karen
