Is it really beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I went into Walmart this week and was surprised by the fact that the register lights were already wrapped to resemble gifts, the shelves were stocked with Christmas goodies, and the seasonal isles were loaded with Christmas housewares. It amazes me how every year the Christmas season always starts just a little earlier than the previous year. Slow down people! Can't I just sit back and enjoy the holiday of Gratitude! Have we all forgotten how far we have come. I for one will be taking the next few weeks to just embrace all that the Lord has given me this past year and I hope to be celebrating this glorious month of Thanksgiving with the ones I love.

Posted below are some santas I made for a lovely costumer. It was a joy to work on these and I hope they will bring much cheer to those that will be receiving them.

Just a few things I am Grateful for this month.....
My family.. whom I adore and love unconditionally
A loving Savior who gave his life for me
My home that keeps us safe and warm
My Talents ...without them I might just be a little psychotic
My friends...because we all need to laugh now and then
My car that seems to transport me and my children to every activity
And today, I am especially grateful for the right to VOTE.
And let me not forget how grateful I am for all the men and women who so
diligently serve this country to help provide the freedoms we do have.

Happy Veterans Week to all of you and I hope you all take time this month to find the things you are Grateful for in your life.
Until next time,


  1. Super cute Santa's! Are you going to do anything with snowmen per chance?

  2. Melane, I always have snowmen. I am working on some new ones right now. Are you interested?
