Crafty Christmas Craziness


I don't know about your house, but things are crazy busy over here... I finally got my house cleaned up this morning, so it no longer looks like a bomb went off in a wrapping paper factory. The presents are wrapped, decorations are up, the floor is vacuumed, and I'm down to a few final projects for Christmas. Whew! It came fast this year! I love it though.

I wanted to show you my latest knitting project - I finished this up last weekend when a nasty sinus infection confined me to the couch for a day.... (I'm sure you wanted to know that). This is the same pattern that I made for my Mom, which I showed you in a previous post. Read it to learn more about a great knitting and crocheting site, Ravelry.com.

I made two different flower bands, so that I can change the colors out for different outfits. I may have to make some more of these - quick and easy, and they make the hat much more versatile!

Now that I'm caught up with all of my Christmas preparations, I will be starting another piece for the collaged hymn series that I have been working on lately. Check back soon for pics! I will also have an exciting announcement regarding this piece.... (whoo... mysterious!)

I have been doing a few other crafty little things, but I can't show them to you yet... it might ruin someone's Christmas surprise! So check back Christmas day (or after) to see what else I've been working on!

I probably won't be doing much more posting this week (I may possibly give you a work-in-progress shot of the collage - if I have a chance), so I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas, celebrating the TRUE Reason for the season...

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Isaiah 9:6-7

He came once as a lamb...
He's coming back as a lion.

Merry Christmas!


  1. Cute hatbands! You should think about selling the hats/hatbands at the farmers market - I think people would go nuts over them! They are stinkin' cute!

  2. Thanks! I've thought about making them to sell - there's already some ladies at the FM that sell felted hats and such, so I would probably just stick to Etsy... But I am considering it.

  3. You and your hat are lovely! I look forward to seeing more of your work in the hymn series as well as your Christmas crafting! Merry Christmas!

  4. Thank you, Katy... you're very kind. :) Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas too!
