~ Warm Welcome and Merry Christmas to all of my stitching friends ~
Today is the beginning of the fourth year of
So here we are on Day 1...
and I've got to be honest people, I have been back in my home for 24 hours and my life is a bit random and frankly a mess since I've been away for 3 1/2 weeks on my grand vacation.
One thing you can count on me about is:
Keeping it real. My life is a bit of a mess right now ~ not in a bad way, just in a I'm not in the groove and things are out of control way.
My house isn't a mess...
(no my husband is too much of a perfectionist for it to be a mess) but it is still decorated for fall. Yes, you read correctly. Not a single Christmassy thing is anywhere in my house, except for this Blog Header (that I made today) and this here little 'ol post.
So give me this first day to draw a road map of what will happen in the upcoming days.
"What is going to happen this year during these 25 Days?"
Well I'm going to share with you my family, my life, my tips/techniques/ideas and just generally bask in the glow of the holidays!
Last year so many people enjoyed my gadgets and gizmos bit...
that I know for certain that I'll have a few gizmos to throw in and show you. Some I've bought from a store, some I've made because it helps me in the way I stitch.
We will definitely have stitching related talk.
We will definitely have tutorials created and shared as my gift to you for being my loyal friends.
We will have fun and laughter.
However, above all, we will share happiness and love for each other, our craft that brings us so much joy and just general fun.
There is so much negativity in the world...
you see it all around you. It is my hope that together we all can make a change in our hearts, with purpose in our minds, to be a positive light for this world. We all have different ideals, faiths, families, friends, goals...but although we are all different and walk different stations in life; this art, this hobby brings us all together under a common roof for fun and fellowship. AND....I've got a couple of fellowship moments that I just experienced over the last few weeks to share with you during these 25 days!
Tis the season for fellowship....
join me friends - join me to light up this world for good, for joy and for friendship.
I'll be back tomorrow to share with you my progress on bringing a little Christmas in my home....
Oh heaven help me, I've got a long row to hoe here and the weeds are a grabbing at the handle.
Until tomorrow friends!
Merry Christmas and Happy 25 Days!
Now on to my coffee with peppermint mocha creamer....GO! get ya' some!
That's your Day 1 tip :)
