I've been absent from this little space of mine.  I have to be honest, I really haven't been inspired to write about anything and I REALLY haven't been inspired to paint anything lately.  Instead of painting though, I've been busy finding time to:

 Make fun star garland which Maya from Maya Made posted about last week.  These are easy and addictive little stars to make, Fischer was able to make some too. 


I did some garland that was only stars, but I also did some garland that has stars, pine cones and  pom poms made out of coffee filters that were dipped in coffee and cinnamon.  (inspired by these flowers on The White Bench)


I just couldn't stop myself from making a peppermint wreath.  I've seen different versions all over and found them to be so eye catching that I had to make one for myself!  I'm very happy with the results!  Fischer just wants to lick it though!



I've also been finding time to embroider a few simple little stocking stuffers for Amelia such as this headband and barrette.


And sew some little gift bags, with the goal that some day we will not have to use wrapping paper!


and of course finding the time to do a little Christmas baking.  Yum!



And in between all of this, I haven't forgotten to find the time to look at the beautiful sunsets that are in my own backyard!

What have you been finding time for?
