Although technically the holidays are over .. not for me because of all that snow! I am still baking cookies for the neighbors,crafting little holiday gifts for my blogger friends (not going to show you these since it ruins the surprise), and finishing last minute things for gallery winter deliveries.After being literally snowed in for the 10 days before Christmas, our house looks and feels like a trans-Pacific plane after 16 hours of flight (if you've been on one of those - you know what I mean). So the house needs a really good top to bottom cleaning too. Here's what our car looked like for those 10 days, although the gap between top and bottom did eventually close leaving just a rounded mound. I lived in fear that if the mythical snowplow ever did arrive (which it never did on our street) that they would accidentally run into it:I am SO far behind on everything that I think I'll still be catching up in February! I'm also having to go in for some frightening medical tests and that's putting me even more behind :( For those of you placing orders, it's taking me an extra day or two for processing this month. Thank you so much for your understanding.
I also want to take this moment to say thank you to all my wonderful bloggy friends who did my the honor of sending me gifts! You are all an inspiration and a comfort to me each and every day and I am so happy and proud to be part of this wonderful community! I want to say a special thank you to Natalea, my bibliophile buddy, and Gracie, who makes the most beautiful cards and envelopes. Check out the yummy ones she sent me in this wonderful holiday package:I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season and that 2009 is starting off just awesomely for you!!
