Hello There...

 Merry Christmas!! I hope you all had a charming holiday!
We certainly did. We got to be with family and eat our favorite foods and I even lost my voice singing Christmas carols. HA!

We even had a White Christmas! Yay!

We also spent a lot of time making gifts. We had so much fun coming up with things to make for our nephews and nieces and all our family.

Here's a couple things I made..
I gave my oldest nephew, who loves anything camo and is doing so well learning how to play guitar, a music stand and a handmade case for it. And can you believe it? I found camo guitar fabric! Well, technically it's basses, but I didn't realize that until I was making it. heh heh...
And also a camping pillow case with the same fabric like the ones I've been making for our etsy shop.

For another nephew who likes cowboy stuff, a flannel camping pillow case with...yes, cowboys.
 And for my niece,  a Hello Kitty pillowcase, and for the two sweet girls I am nanny to, pillowcases with their favorite animals... Pandas and Unicorns. =]
 A couple months ago we were so lucky to get to visit our friends who live in the Greenwood of Oregon.
We had a lovely time at their cabin in the woods! They prepared for us the most wonderful food and kept us warm by keeping the fire going all day and even gave us a tea party! It was delightful!
As a thank you, I wanted to make them each a Wolly Pop that was inspired by their own character. =]

 I've also been having way too much fun with my "doll house". It's not really a house, but a corner of my bedroom that I've been decorating and making into a little home for my 1860's china doll.
You can see more pictures of it on our doll blog HERE if you like. =]

So, that's some of what and where we've been. I hope everyone is having a delightful January so far!
