I am truly amazed at how so many of you are able to still balance so much with the holidays fast approaching. While our house is decorated to the brim inside and out, the stockings are not hung by the fireplace with care, and the cookie baking has just begun! And lets not forget about all the wonderful, homemade gifts, that I hoped to share. Most of my journals are completed, but the other "hobby" that I began a few months ago - knitting - is still coming along. I truly enjoy the process of selecting yarns (all those colors and textures) and once I get in the "knitting zone", it is like therapy - but I am a few scarves short of my Santa List. So my entry for Inspire Me Thursday this week, is a snapshot of a few of my scarves (all done in the one stitch I am proficient in, garter stitch). Once the holidays are over, I may have time to craft one for myself. =)
I also wanted to send out a big THANKS to Carli for the lovely blog award that she bestowed on me. Her blog is always so charming and fun, stop by for a visit today to see some of her delightful illustrations. And in the spirit of the season, I want to pass this award along to all of you - it is always such a wonderful feeling when you can share with others!
Have a great day - I need to run out and mail Santa Letters now. Be sure to check back later this week for more holiday illustrations.
