Happy New Year's Eve - boy did we get some snow!

Good morning and welcome to the day before the night before 2008.

When I woke up this morning, what to my wondering eyes did appear, but a vision of snow and fields of white, candy fluff only beautiful because I'm not going to work! I had to take a few more pictures of this wonderland this morning. Yesterday there wasn't much snow left. It had rained Friday, most of the night in fact and the snow had dwindled. I got up this morning to a refill. LOL. I took the pictures about a half hour ago and it's still snowing. The flakes are fluffy and moderately sized and it would be a beautiful Christmas fantasy out there - if this was Christmas eve/day! Alas - a week late. Anyway, here are the pictures that I took of my winter wonderland, here outside Cambridge, NY. Enjoy! Have a wonderful and happy, healthy 2008!

Hi and Happy New Year's Eve of New Year's Eve!

Welcome to December 30th! What a year it's been. Can't wait to see what 2008 may bring. I hope that we find good health and great peace with in it's bounds. I have been working on a few things and am posting some pictures here. I made an elf from cloth along with a stocking to send him to Yvette Cole in. This one was made as a swap for her on Pin Doll Alley.

I also made an Ornament for Fran Parrington-Mehan as a secret santa swap on A Dolls Safe Haven. I really had a great time making this ornament and using the beautiful magenta taffeta lining fabric that I also used years ago on my daughter Becky's prom dress.
Just before Christmas I started working on a head sculpt. I was trying for a Santa but at this stage it looks more like an ogre. Who knows how it will end up. I kind of work as it comes and many change of directions may occur. I also made a face mold out of this one. Not sure how I will use them but I did make a couple of impressions. (LOL> Only time will tell...)

We spent Christmas at my daughter's house and had a wonderful time. Lots of food and fun and the kids all got more than enough for the year. Mike will be home from NYC for a couple of weeks in January and we look forward to that. He is still working in Prom at Webster Hall and having a great time.

I'm hoping that in the coming year I will be able to branch out with my work and enter a few things here and there.

These are a few pictures from our visit to Prom

The good one of Mike on the bar was taken by our son, Aaron's girlfriend, Annelise. Thanks!

I also want to add a picture of the window decorations in our sunroom and the view of the snow on the horse field from the windows. (Horse has been long dead and the fence taken down but it will forever be "the horse field". God Bless Gaucho.)

Happy December!

Wow - can't even believe how fast the time has gone. Almost Christmas and so far so good. This has been a rather laid back December (relatively) for us. We got our decorations up and have made some treats for the neighbors, shopping is mostly done and wrapped and the long distance things are mailed. My wishes for you are a safe, healthy and happy season - for me it's a Merry Christmas - for you which ever holiday you embrace should be the happiest one ever! May you have peace, hope, health and prosperity and great love in the coming year.

I have been working on some things also and will post some pictures of the completed (and not so completed) shortly. I did take a few pictures of the holiday decorations we put out and will post some of those too. Hopefully tomorrow as it will most likely be a snow day. We got pounded with snow, sleet and freezing rain for the last 24 hours and tomorrow is supposed to be windy. Since it's all heavy and wet it will take us a little while more to dig ourselves out. LOL. Home and hot chocolate all around.

So more tomorrow - have a peaceful evening. Whoops - looks like it's tomorrow already - so have a great day.

About Me

My photo

I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years.  I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories.  I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent.  I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish.  Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years.  There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now.  My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls.  Who could ask for more than that?
