We are quickly approaching the end of this year. I can't believe how fast it came and went. But I am looking forward to what the New Year has in store for us. It is always so very exciting to begin a new year. Feels like a fresh new start.
My New Year's resolutions are to pray more, laugh more and love more.
How about you, do you have any New Year's resolutions?
If you've been
following me for a while you might know that every year I make an ornament for our Christmas tree. One that holds some of the most important and special events of that year. It's sort of a mini time capsule.
On one side it's all about our daughter and her accomplishments as a college student. She is working so hard to make it into grad school. Her favorite quote is "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the Stars."
On this side is the cover of the beautiful magazine Artful Blogging. This issue is special in particular because my petite blog was featured in it.
Next is some movie tickets stubs from the premiere of Star Wars, The Force Awakens. This is for my Hubby who is the biggest Star Wars fan I know. Believe me this was a big deal and special moment for him :-)
And although this wasn't a special moment or happy memory I wanted to memorialize our little fur baby Cookie by adding her id tags to this year's ornament.
So there you have it...My Most Treasured Ornament 2015.
I've been a busy little bee decorating, sewing and crafting. One of the craft projects I worked on is this pair of angel wings.
Would you believe it if I told you that I made them out of recycled cereal boxes?
I had been wanting to make a pair like this for the longest time for one of my Santo Dolls.
I know, I know, this isn't a Santos Doll but since I dressed up my petite dress form for Christmas I figured I could use the wings as Christmas décor too so I tried them on her and they are a perfect fit! I am so happy how the turned out.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful December.
I know this time of the year we all tend to be extra busy so please know that I appreciate you taking the time to stop by for a visit and for leaving me such sweet comments.
