Where did the year go? I can't believe that my grandfather has lived with us for a whole year. Time has really flown by.
Christmas is around the corner. Here's few places to visit to help get you in the holiday spirit.
Visit Tim Holtz's blog. He's doing a great "12 Tags of Christmas" series. I'm learning a lot and wanting to take some time to create.
Yesterday, Donna Salazar made my day. I left a comment on her blog and she sent me an email. Just a small unexpected note. Something that really brightened my day. I really love seeing the things she creates. So full of art and it looks like she has so much fun creating it.
And I love the small things Rebecca Sower is posting on her blog.
I have to admit the commercialism of Christmas has put a small damper on my Christmas. But I took a few steps yesterday to get things back on the right track. I took 2 names off on of the Christmas trees at the local mall. You know... the ones that charities and churches put up, to get less fortunate people a few gifts for Christmas. I picked a teen-aged girl and a man in hospice care. Both had really simple wishes, and that touched my heart. I almost started crying at the mall when I read the things they wanted. So, I got both of them some stuff. I really wanted to get the rest of those names off the that tree. Maybe next year, I can do more.
I have already turned in a toy, an outfit and some socks for another name I got off a different tree at my friend's beauty shop. That child is developmental challenged, so I hope that the blocks I got will be ok.
Hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
