'tis the season

To be really busy (nothing like stating the obvious!). That's why I've been mia. The unread blogs in my bloglines is endless. I simply haven't had time to be around at all. I've worked on three web site designs, a logo, custom paper illustrations, made countless trips to the post office and the obvious Christmas related activities. Our shopping is done, but I still need to work on the wrapping.

Speaking of wrapping I'm so happy that so many of you enjoyed my latest gift tags (over 1400 downloads and counting!) and thank you for all your kind words. I know that the word spread quickly due to at least the posts of a couple of ladies (that I can think of right now) including Molly at her Momformation blog (a very generous post) and Cassi's great list of tag ideas that is definitely worth checking out. Oh and one more! Whip Up has compiled a great list of handmade ornaments and gift ideas and they included my kids tags and junk mail trees. Thank you!

The kids get out of school before lunch today so this will be short and I'll just leave you with some photos taken this week. I hope that you're all doing well!

Some commission work

Tea light holders I won via Emmas blog - I love them!
