Hi everyone...I'm up late working on the house...Normally by now I would have all my Christmas taken down and given the house a good New Years cleaning, but this year it is still up....I was asked to have my home in a Christmas book next year, so I have been taking my time photographing many pics to go through....That is why I haven't shown but a few Christmas pictures on here this year..

I have a "Cabin On The Hill" tart  melting in my tart burner so the house smells soooooo good!!! I'm busy working on laundry, rearranging some things, and taking some night time pictures....Have ya'll taken your Christmas down yet?

I've already started working on some new samplers and projects, joined a selling group, and making plans for new things this new year....No resolutions here, just simple little changes....And thanking HIM for another year....Are you ready for New Years?...I'm ready for a new year...With the promise of hope, faith, and new adventures....

Until next time my friends! Hugs, Jen

Love the photo!! Congratulations on having your home in a book next year -- I'll be looking for it....

Most of my decos are still up -- took some Santas down and some other odds/ends. Tree comes down on New Year's Day, along with the rest of the stuff. Christmas seemed to go by so quickly this year, although I guess it always feels that way!

Looking forward to seeing all of your new creations!! Happiness in 2012.... Penny

Happy New Year to you and your wonderful family! I am so in love with the dolls in the picture! Thanks again for my pinkeeps of "Elsie" and "Violet". I adore them!

Our decorations are still up until Sunday or Monday. Sad to take them down.

This is a beautiful photo Jen! I just love how your tree sparkles! Congratulations on the Christmas book. Please give us info as soon as you can, I would love to get it.

My hubby loves the Christmas decorating more than I do. Every year he asks that I leave it up till after New Year's Day, after he goes back to work. He's still home so the Christmas is still out but that's okay. I've enjoyed being lazy and catching up on blogs before I have to get back at it.

Have a wonderful week!
