I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

My blogger friends...I've missed you! I just recently returned from a week long trip to my happy place...
If you guessed someplace sunny and warm... you were right!

Ah...Sweet Florida....

I played hard all week with several good friends, and then came home and hit the ground running.

I began a forty hour a week temp job and the hours are 11:00 am to 7:30 pm five days a week. I'm grateful for the work, but the hours are tough.  I also work at the WCS every Sunday after church, so that leaves pretty much one day now to get "Life" done, if you know what I mean.

So...my blogging has suffered just a bit the last few weeks.  I'm trying to catch up on your blogs and find a way to keep mine updated...

Until then, be patient with me and know that I'm thinking of you all, and can't wait to oooh and ahhh over all your inspirations.

Until next post, I'll leave you with one little Christmas creation for the shop.
I made these little "Twelve Days of Christmas" Ornaments/Tags.
They are crafted from chipboard tags and of course numbers, tinsel, and glitter.
Close up, the glitter on them reminds me of sugar cookies...  mmmm!
These could be used for ornaments for a tree, or a base for an advent calendar, or even sweet gift tags for that special gift.

I think I'll link these up to Vintage Inspiration Friday at Common Ground, since they do seem to have a vintage appeal...don't you think?

So glad you enjoyed Florida, Karen. It sounded like a happy place indeed - and I am SO happy to see these gorgeous ornaments! I do hope they are still prettying up your booth by the time I arrive there in a few weeks. I may have to snatch these sugar 'cookies' up! :)
