Black Friday

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

I just don’t know how people can stand being out in the shopping madness!!  Its so easy to shop right online..

We will go get our Christmas  tree today as I like to get as much mileage out of it as possible! I enjoy spending plenty of time adding each ornament, it will take nearly a day to decorate. I like all the preamble to the holiday more than the actual holiday, that nostalgic feeling of cozyness, staying warm inside, deliberating about gifts and creating all the stuff for sale has become a big thing for me, its fun. I even like doing the Christmas cards! We are going to make cookies for family and I may make some tamales for Christmas dinner though I am not sure I should try without mom’s help! She is especially the expert at applying the masa (dough) to the corn husks 😀

Our Thanksgiving was very low key and quiet, no drama which is the way I like it. My stuffing turned out exceptionally good this year, not sure why, just glad it did, its so tricky to get it just right.

Here is my ugly ornie, I like it so much I might not sell it.

If I had kept all the ornaments I have made over the past three years I would have a whole tree full of unique one of a kind handmade ornies, at the same time, I adore the idea of collectors adorning their tree with my pieces for many years.
