Coming January 1st.

Hellooooooooo! How are you? Did you have a fun and festive time? Our Christmas was nice and quiet. We enjoyed staying home and binge watching some shows and having a nice dinner. Oh...and I took a nap! LOL!!

Well, my teeth saga continues. I was suppose to get them tomorrow, but now they have been delayed another week. The last time I had this done was in 2010. It took 9 days from start to finish. By the time I get these, it will have been a month. Let's just say I really miss my old dentist (who retired) and I'm not impressed with the young dentist. Oh well, whatcha gonna do?

Ok, onto something fun shall we? Once again, Jules, my dear friend in England, and I collaborated on an adventure. Wonderland Woods is a journey through our fictional British woodland. There are lots of animals we will meet on this journey and a glorious ancient oak tree. Jules wrote wonderful stories about the animals interaction with the oak tree. I know you will enjoy them as much as I do!


Here are a few sneaky peeks. The following photos show you our "From Concept to Completion" stages. Jules' paintings were once again the inspiration behind my Folk Art Fusion technique.





This will not be a block of the month series. I am traveling a lot next year (more on that next week) and we decided it would be more fun to do something different from other designers and give you an entire e-book with all the designs. There will also be wool and thread kits available while supplies last.

So hop back over on January 1st for a fun, new adventure through Wonderland Woods!

Hugs and Hoppy New Year!

Time to reflect

Last week I was in Destin, FL with David and his family. It was cold and cloudy, but the sand and surf were still so incredibly beautiful. We were suppose to go in September, but the hurricane interfered with our plans.



I don't have photos of the cottage decorated for Christmas to show you. I've been traveling so much and we are in the middle of some renovations. I will share them with you shortly. Plus, our tree didn't fit and we had to get a new tree(s). Plus I've had some dental surgery and I have ugly teeth and then I got a rash on my face from some lotion. All I need is an ugly Christmas sweater and I will have total UGLY Christmas!! LOL!

Oh well, I'm just going to spend some time reflecting on all the changes and things that happened this year and start looking forward to all the exciting adventures to come in 2018.

Until next week, have a wonderful Christmas. May all your wishes come true. I want my 4 front teeth for Christmas...but it looks like it will be New Years instead. ;)

Hugs and friends,
Michelle
