It`s Almost CHRISTMASSS! #Handmade #Folksy

As it is almost the last posting date for Christmas I thought I would show lot`s of festive crafts today as well as a few gift ideas.
We had some snow yesterday which really made me feel christmassy, couple that with some present and card delivering and all of a sudden the Christmas spirit is about. There is something about seeing swirling snow that brings out the kid in me. I do love to see it. I don`t even mind so much walking in it at least it doesn`t soak through as quickly as rain.
Mind you, a few weeks of it will tell a different story methinks. But for now I am enjoying seeing it and looking forward to seeing a carpet of it covering the garden to make snowmen with the grandchildren.
Oh, just had a thought... these days should it be snowpeople? Now that`s making me gigggle sitting here writing this. I don`t care at all, I make snowmen. Yay!!
Now what else did I do yesterday? besides some housework. Present delivering, followed by taking my 14 yr old grandaughter to the city to buy her present. She decided that she would like to choose it. So we had fun, a cinnamon pretzel each and lot`s of laughs as we shopped. She takes great delight in the fact that she can now put her arm over my shoulders with ease. Hmmm.
Aren`t I a bit young to be shrinking?
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

The snow is falling all around
and rosy cheeks do abound.
Looking pretty like a snow globe
as I sit watching in my robe.
Now the Christmas spirit rises,
I feel like there could be prizes.
Looks amazing swirling about
It`s WINTER now, I want to shout.
There`s something about the first snow,
seems exciting and gives me a glow.
Later the reality will really hit,
trying to walk will be hard, well a bit.
Trudging to work with cold toes
and even a bright red nose.
In spite of that I think it`s fun,
nice to have some before winter`s done.
Not too much, enough to look pretty
and that`s how I`ll end this ditty!

  6. I had a smile at the picture of your 14 yr old granddaughter putting her arms around your shoulders. My 13 year old son can now look down on me and thinks that therefore he doesn't have to do what I say anymore:)

  7. Thanks for all the lovely comments. Seeing festive things does make you feel more Christmassy.
    @Liz, doesn`t seem 5 minutes since she was a baby, now she`s taller than me. The 12 yr old is almost the same height too.
