Christmas 2013

…from our house to yours!

 



Whoa time really got away from me this year! No posts from July to December is quite a gap – I’m sorry for the neglect! I’ve been super busy with Stitched by JessaLu, every year it seems I double my sales (which is awesome!) which means I double my workload (which is stressful but awesome!) which means something has to give and apparently this year it was the blog. and vacuuming.  I’d promise to try to do better but we all know how that ends up. ;o)

So to move on to what this post is actually about, my boss (yep that’s me) decided I was worthy of a new camera!

Look what I found under the tree! ;) My boss (yes that's me) decided I am worthy of a camera upgrade. This thing is SO SHINY. ❤️ it's a Pentax K-30 - the body is new, the glass is old but still awesome #earlychristmas #pentax #shiny

That’s a shiny new Pentax K-30 – I am in some serious love with this camera. It’s SO SHINY. The glass is not new, I only purchased the camera body, but I don’t care, the whole thing has me all happy to take pictures again (my old Pentax started having focusing issues, it has gone to get looked at and possibly fixed and R may have a new camera). Wanna see pretty pictures? Okay!

*sigh* I love my new camera. I did no post-processing on those photos, they are posted as shot.

Happy ECF – I’m hoping to talk to you again before (or on) Christmas! ;o)

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!

As per usual, I’ve been too busy to blog but I do have a few projects that I need to post about so you’ll be hearing from me again soon!

Happy Holidays!



…the one with all the things to do!

New Jenny the Potter Holiday Mug arrived yesterday!

(pictured above, my new Jenny the Potter Holiday mug!) This week, our directive is ’10 Things You Have to Do Before Christmas/Hannukah/The Weekend’. Since I celebrate Christmas, my list is compiled of things I have to do before Sunday morning…ready?

1. The Fire Dept. holiday party is tonight and I’m pulling it all together so today I have to go get party platters, set up Christmas trees, hang stockings and lights and…and…yeah, I have a ton to do today alone. ;o)

2. Attend FD holiday party and try not to freak out about the stuff I forgot to do/didn’t have time to do before the party started.

3. Crank out a pair of Christmas socks for me! I have a skein of the Jimmy Beans Wool Lorna’s Laces Limited Edition December 2011 color ‘Ribbon Candy‘ all ready to go.

4. Wrap all the gifts – they’re all purchased with the exception of the stocking stuff but they’re not wrapped as of yet.

5. Buy stocking stuffers! ;o)

6. Take a moment to enjoy the season – I haven’t really done that yet.

7.  Finish the Tiny Tea Leaves cardi I started for Winkie.

8.  Add ‘Holiday Inn’ and ‘White Christmas’ to the hard drive so we can add that to the movie mix on Christmas Day.

9. Vacuum!

10.  Send out Christmas Cards! (these may turn into ‘New Year Cards’ ;o) )

Whew! I’d better get busy!  I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday!



…the one with all the thanks.

ECF Thanksgiving 2011

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
