Christmas goodies...





































More and more of them..I just can't help myself...it is my fave holiday and everything is just a bit more special and magical as we get closer and closer to the season. I love creating for this holiday....I think I could create year round for Christmas..and sadly I only have the rest of Nov. and early Dec...which makes me pout a bit. To top it off...it has been SNOWING HERE ALL AFTERNOON. Snow has had an influence on the holiday mood. I hope that sharing these goodies with you helps you get a bit excited for the coming holiday....I try really hard to not neglect Thanksgiving..truly I do...it is important..but I have a tendency toward negligence...please don't hold it against me. I have sat out a few little Thanksgiving touches in my home and need to share them soon! But I digress....
THIS my fellow chums is my 200th post....I am a bit flighty with this blog thing...life gets in the way from time to time so I never thought I would ever get to 200. So if anyone feels like celebrating with me...I will be doing a give-away shortly...something with Christmas Cheer for sure! I am off to snuggle....craft....again....smiles....and watch Vampire Diaries this snowy evening(hooked line and sinker) with my buddy Hunt! Hugs to all, Cherry

Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I live in Washington, but I am about 2 hours from Forks. I have yet to go up there. Pathetic, since I am a twilight fan. Glad you understand about the rain! It's not much fun come January!

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

Oh Cherry Girl...you make my heart smile...and yes you have put me in that lovely Holiday mood. I enjoy every moment of it. I'm in shock that you said it is snowing! Wow. It does snow where we live...here in the mountains...but I'm still in shock that you have it. Perhaps you need to make one more gorgeous goody with "snow" in mind...glistening...sparkly...
I think we all enjoy looking at (and owning) whatever you make!
Big smile!
Blessings,
Debbie

Your Christmas projects are just beautiful. I picked up some scrapping supplies that look similar last week and planned on making some ornaments. Now I've got some great inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

Cherry, you always make the most gorgeous things! It always enspires me. Can't believe it's snowing where you are. I'm in Minnesota and it's been warm lately! Strange, but nice. I think you're not alone with skipping Thanksgiving and going right on to Christmas. A lot of the stores here are doing the same. I also thoroughly understand about life getting in the way of blogging. Looking forward to seeing what you have coming up for your 200th post!

Mandi said...

I love your stuff. Now, I'm sorry if you've already answered this- but where do you get all these goodies to create with? Are you making it all? Finding the vintage?

Busy As Can Be said...

Wow they are all beautiful!

Beautiful creations, as always!

Snow! You lucky girl! Snow always puts me in a holiday mood.

Kathleen Grace said...

I always enjoy seeing what beautiful new creations you have come up with. These are all beautiful! Snow....I don't think I am quite ready for that, although it would make me feel more like Christmas, maybe after Thanksgiving?

Just a little something from Judy said...

This is the perfect way for me to start my busy Friday morning. Now I am inspired! Now I am more excited for the Christmas holidays...thanks to you, my extremely talented friend and your latest post. Everyone of them is so gorgeous!!!!

Who wouldn't want to be included in any one of your giveaways.

Marti said...

Happy 200th post! I love your creations and especially Christmas and Santa. I've had the Christmas crafty itch since mid-summe myself. Thanks for the interesting blog and wonderful ideas.

Claudia said...

I don't know how you do it, but each new creation is gorgeous! Happy 200th post!

Erin said...

Beautiful Christmas decorations! It has been snowing here too. Totally puts me in the mood for Christmas!

Jen R. said...

Lovely Christmas goodies!!! I was wondering of you would want to be interviewed for a creative series I am doing?

Dreams and Decor said...

Congratulations on your 200th post! Your Christmas projects are absolutely amazing! They are definitely getting me into the Christmas spirit! And here I am just finishing up decorating for Thanksgiving! :-) We are still in the 70's in North Central TX! Enjoy your snow and have a great weekend!!! Patti

Julie said...

Oh, Miss Cherry!

Everything is just gorgeous! And I wanted to wish your little man a happy 12th birthday!
That's so sweet that all he wanted was Legos! I love Lego's too!

How blessed you are to be getting snow! If we could have but just a couple of inches....

I'm like you, I'm definetly in the mood for Christmas but feel so very guilty "overlooking" Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is such a blessing to all of us - the history is wonderful.

Our children have put their trees up in their rooms and decorated. I'm lagging behind them... that danged guilt, I suppose!

Blessings,
Julie

Carmen said...

Your photos are always so great. What kind of camera do you use?

Gretchen said...

Your goodies are so beautiful! Maybe if I had snow I could get motivated too.

Hugs, Gretchen

Jean said...

Cherry,
Congrat on 200! Honestly I thought it would be more. I have enjoyed every single one!
PS I just saw your luv for Robby Benson, I'm showing my age but I saw Ode' to Billy Joe about 100 times when I was a kid. I really thought I'd marry him one day.
