Post Holiday Blues

Hello Friends! I hope that everyone had a glorious holiday season.  Mine was different, but it's okay.  Because of work schedules our traditions got shifted a bit, but we made it through and hopefully things will be back to normal next year.  Everyone seemed to really love and appreciate their handmade gifts which is always rewarding.  It's reassuring to know that all of the money, time and love that you have invested is not unappreciated. In fact one of my stepdaughter's gifts was an infinity scarf that I had bought for her and she was disappointed that it wasn't handmade! LOL So, note to self for next year--more handmade gifts! HA! I was never sure if she would be one of those people that would appreciate something like that, but now I know. :-) So my Christmas was a success if for no other reason than that.  Now I'm going to share some pictures with you of some of my Christmas projects.  This is by no means all of them, but you get the idea.
