Christmas Crunch

We’re all busy this time of year.  Shopping, making, cooking, planning, on top of all the ordinary things we have to do can get a little overwhelming.  I try to make sure I step back once in a while and catch my breath, so I took Saturday off.

My husband and I went to Crafty Wonderland in Portland.  I also went last spring, and found things to buy and things I wish I had bought.  There were a lot of talented people at this show, but I managed to leave empty-handed anyway.  I really loved this vendor’s display though, in an adorable, old travel trailer.


I paid for my time off on Sunday, and will continue to throughout the week.  The last minute shoppers are hitting Etsy, and are finding me often.  I’m thrilled!  However, I won’t be able to participate in Sew, Mama, Sew’s Giveaway Day today.  I really wanted to, but I think it’s just the wrong time of year for me.  I’ll definitely be in for the spring day though.

If you need a little break, I’d encourage you to visit some of the blogs sponsoring giveaways this week.  It’s a great way to discover some new reading material, and you could be the one to win.  Good luck!
