Good Tidings this Christmas!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  It's finally sunny outside!  Seems like the weather has been overcast and dreary for so long that I am so happy to finally have some sunshine!  Ariel and I went for a walk as soon as the sun started to shine this afternoon!  I hope the sun is here to stay!  Our province is actually called Sunny Manitoba and known for it's sunshine!  A cold winter is so much easier to take if it's sunny!  Same goes for such a cool fall!

Today I have some Christmas cards to share!  One design and 4 cards made!  This past weekend I've been enjoying making Christmas cards!  


I used a new set by Hero Arts for Basic Grey Aspen Frost collection Happy Holidays!  Along with another new set, my favorite sentiment one Miracle of the Holidays!  Pretty straightforward card, but I loved making them!

We had such a great weekend!  Ariel had a 4 day weekend!  On Thursday we enjoyed a home day, Friday we went to the Children's museum with friends, hung out with the cousins and later went to church as they had fireworks!  Saturday we went to Community Day at the movie theater and saw Kung Fu Panda 2 in 3D, it was free and popcorn and such were $2 and proceeds went to charity! Today we went to church and have enjoyed a lazy Sunday afternoon at home!  What great family time!

This past week I am happy to share that I had my first etsy sale!  I sold my first wreath on etsy!  It took less than a month and I may have been beginning to think it would never happen but it did! YAY!  I also finished up a custom order for a friend (she got it made as a gift) in new to me colors!  So happy with how it turned out!

I made my first multi color flower!  I really like this wreath and that yarn!  I am hoping to get going on Christmas wreaths this week.  I have been wrapping wreaths as a passenger in the car lately, I have 4 wreaths all wrapped and waiting for flowers!

Well that's it for me today!  See you soon!
