A Very Nice Christmas Gift

HeyMichelle, Etsy admin, started a thread the other day about posting treasuries that she would put on the front page over Christmas. I posted what I had in my poster sketch, hoping what I created would get to the front page. Guess what - it did! Yesterday morning this was up for a while -

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! :)

I mostly made all the gifts this year, so avoided the rush at the mall! (thank goodness!) And I finally finished my baking today. (now Santa will have cookies to go with his milk!)

I didn't get as much done as I had planned though, so I'm bummed about that. Christmas just sneaked up on me this year.

Tonight we will be going to early Christmas eve service at church, then home for a yummy beef stew. Tomorrow it will be just me, my husband and son hanging out, as all our relatives are far away. Looking at the gifts under the tree, we may have to get a storage unit to house all the toys! :) And sometime we will be driving around to look at all the lights!

I hope you all have a very merry holiday season!

Missed it AGAIN!!

Second time on the front page of Etsy, and I missed it again! Why? It was on at 2 AM PST!!! Brenda of phydeaux got a screen shot for me, though! Thanks, Brenda! :)

Last minute shopping ideas...

Wow, Christmas is Thursday!!!

It really snuck up on me this year. Shopping is done, and gifts are wrapped, now I have to concentrate on baking!

For those of you who haven't completed your shopping yet, this weekend I am having a buy one, get one (or more) half off sale! Visit RedBessBonney.etsy.com for details. I am willing to upgrade to priority mail, or if you live near me, I can arrange for pick up or delivery.

Another option for terrific handmade items is the Handmade in California gift guide. Many of the shops listed will also work with you to ensure items are received before the big day.

Happy Shopping and Merry Christmas!

Happy Birthday To Me....

and congrats to the winner of my birthday giveaway, Hyla of MyFairyBabies! Hyla gets her choice of a jewelry item from my shop!

My birthday plans had included a special trip to Disneyland, but it's been raining buckets. Sigh. I know I don't have anything to complain about with the more severe weather in other parts of the country. Just an annoyance that I can't play today! :)
