Oh my, oh my has it been a crazy month: welcome to December! I feel blessed, I feel happy….I feel…tired.  I heart the holiday season there’s just so much to do and so much going on…
I love being busy though and made some cookies for the 2nd Annual New York Holiday Cookie Swap event today organized by Bloggers Without Borders to benefit the Cookies for Kids’ Cancer charity.  So many great blog friends to catch up with and new ones to meet.  Oh and did I mention all the cookies?!
So, someday I’ll catch up on blog posts about flower arranging, (birthday present, 2 Thanksgiving dinners, 2nd year of amaryllis for a big fashion client), canning (Brooklyn Swappers event and Justin‘s first pickles), sewing (new book and material to make my first skirt), knitting (another beautiful book and lilac-colored socks), felting (have the tools, don’t have the time), paper crafts (squirrel place cards and so many great friends who are into this!), craft fairs (’tis the season), friends visiting from out of town (yay!), holiday parties (double yay!) and holiday projects (oh so many in mind…)
Here are other tasty recaps of the event, enjoy:
