december's busy start

Happy December! The holidays are all around us, even online.

A festive event that I am beyond honored to be participating in is The Twelve Days of Christmas at the Where Women Create blog. Starting today and continuing each day until December 12th, the WWC blog will feature 3 artists sharing holiday traditions and prizes daily. My post is scheduled for December 9. I hope you'll pop over to read my story and enter the giveaway.

Sonia's new holiday issue of Creating Vintage Charm is now available. The beautiful cover speaks volumes about the treasures inside -- page after page of ideas from inspiring artists and friends from the blogging community. I am happy to have made editing contributions to this issue.

Today I have a post at Kidoinfo, a Providence-based online guide for parents. If you've ever heard "I'm bored" from someone shorter than your elbow, you might find this article useful or at least fun.

This weekend is the big bazaar. Here's my "dress rehearsal" in the basement. I still have a few things to make but am really looking forward to this event.

Beautiful 3-story (or was it 4?) Anthro in Philly

So between this and that (and having been away for a few days for Thanksgiving), things are busy as I am sure they are for almost everyone. Just take deep breaths and enjoy the magic!

Happy December, Elyse! Wow--congrats on being part of the 12 Days--how wonderful!

Can't wait to receive my copy of CVC--looks like it will be so full of Christmas beauty!

Speaking of're "dress rehearsal" table looks like it will be quite a hit--I wouldn't be able to resist any of it!

Hope you're staying warm & cozy, my friend!

Hi Elyse! I have been wondering where you were hiding! And, then, genius that I am, I figured AhHa..she is busy getting ready for her big show! I hope you sell everything you take with you and don't have a box to bring home!

I am using your little clothespins for some sweet girly decorations over SweetCheeks little bed. I will post it when I get it up.

Happy Holidays to you. I will be glad when the show is over and you can get a bit of a breather...and you can bet your bippy that I will be popping over to see you featured on the 9th. I can't think of anyone more deserving! hugs- Diana

I just caught up on the last couple of posts that I missed and I have come to the conclusion that there is a definite air of magic about you.

Love to you!
