We are all so busy this time of year. Oh how I wish for childhood again when your only worries are those of thinking about the Christmas school vacation, the visiting family, the anticipation of waking up on Christmas morning and finding all the brightly wrapped presents under the tree. I do enjoy seeing all of these emotions in my children but these times also bring a little stress to us. I have managed to not get too stressed this year. I keep checking myself and making sure I don’t get to wrapped up in the craziness.
I have some new booth pictures. Actually, it is not the same as pictured since the Christmas quilt sold but it is the last pictures I took on Saturday. I will be taking a few new items in the morning..
Here are some of the items I took in last week.
I took three Christmas lap quilts in and they have all sold.
A friend of mine, Tammy, who lives in Colorado and I did a trade recently. She is owns a company called Avani, which she started when her daughter (one of my daughters best friends) had developed severe eczema and skin problems because of allergies. She knew I was having problems with rashes on my arms that wont go away. I went to the dermatologist and they did a biopsy and told me it was Granuloma Annulare and eczema. There is basically nothing you can do about it. They gave me a cream which does not help so I have been using the soap for several days. I am using the unscented of course because of my severe nasal allergies. I am loving it. I feel so squeaky clean, no soapy residue like regular soaps. I will try the body butter after another week. I don’t like to introduce too much newness at once. I traded Tammy this little horse I had made. The good news is I will also be carrying her soaps at my booth. I received the first box today so I will be taking them in tomorrow.
We celebrated Alice’s 10th birthday this past weekend!! Hard to believe my baby is 10. And I cannot post without a snapshot of little Prancer, he is becoming such a little handful!!
I hope you are having a terrific week and not getting too stressed out. Don’t forget to find a little stitching time, it always helps my mood!!
