The Christmas Stocking

I spend so much time making things for everyone else, that I tend to forget about me!
Don't get me wrong, I love creating things for everyone.
I love to see and hear how much they are appreciated.
 Just forget about me....that's all. "Me" meaning myself AND my family.
It's especially important around Christmas time to show my family a bit of love and decorate the house beautifully for them too. I was always big on that but as life has been somewhat busier lately it is easy to lose focus on the family....the most important people.
I still spend a lot of time with them but my head is often in a computer or other.
Anyway, had fun making this stocking in the studio today....well, it IS Sunday.
Hope you are all having a good one.

Having fun!

 Playing with soaps, muslin, coffee dyed ribbon, mother of pearl buttons and old paper in a
 freshly painted studio (thanks Dad ).....a perfect way to spend a Sunday.
 Tomorrow will be a day spent on making charms. The orders are growing so it's time for this girl to get into action....not long till Christmas now and I don't want to disappoint anyone.

Sunday in the Studio

Where did that week go?
I missed last Sunday in the studio as I needed to work at the shop. But, after a VERY wonderful few days in the shop talking to the most lovely people and feeling very much appreciated : ), I'm back here today creating some more Christmas keepsakes. I hope to have these in store in the next couple of weeks....that is if I can pull together an idea I have for  a new design  for a Christmas tree. It will be a little hard to display my new things without it so wish me luck.....
happy days...
