A bit early...
































Is anyone still around this joint? I have been MIA....my son got sick again..this time with the flu and missed a full week..and than it took me a good week to recover the house from the land mine that hit it. As a crafter...it takes awhile to get stocked up on holiday goods...as you can guess I have been busy with THE holiday....CHRISTmas. Which is my favorite of all holidays....the most magical time of the year, the reason for it, and the blessings it brings. I actually stocked quite a few Christmas items last week..but most of them are gone from my etsy store. I thought I would share some of this weeks & last weeks goodies with you. It is that or share pics of the dirty sink....I have yet to get to. Do you really want to see a dirty sink....if you have seen one you've seen them all. Hope all is well with anyone that still visits this way. Happy Monday, cherry

You are blessed with a God given talent to create the loveliest little works of art....Heaven inspired...creativity at its best. Some people write beautiful music or paint lovely pictures on the ceilings of cathedrals but you my friend create little images of beauty that we can all enjoy!

All of these Christmas decorations are beautiful - my favorite being the gingerbread man. I never would have thought how well using the color black works for Christmas. Thanks for the inspiration.

Awesome! These are the cutest creations I've seen in a while!

Kathleen Grace said...

How I wish I were as organized and ahead of the game as you are Cherry! Christmas? Puhleeze! I am so far away from being ready for that season. Your goodies are gorgeous though! Good thing you got a head start, these will fly out of your etsy shop:>)

Just a little something from Judy said...

I have missed a few of your latest posts and today I feel like I struck a gold mine. So much artisitic beauty all on one blog. Each one of these latest Christmas pieces are masterpieces. I certainly could not pick a favorite. Your creative juices must constantly be flowing.

Rita said...

Is never too early for Christmas crafts especially if your favorite color is RED! My son has swine flu right now so like you no workshop for a while, taking care of him and the family but I get to be close to him and still get more time to find new blogs like your, love your work. Take care Rita
