New Years Eve 2015

Happy New Years Eve

I have so much to be thankful for this year. Tonight, my daughter and I plan to stay up late and ring in the New Year together. The BF is home with the strep throat. Tomorrow, my daughter and I will be doing some sewing. She’s excited to work on an outfit. We’re keeping it simple. I’ll be sure to post some pictures of her finished garment here on Celebrate Life.

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!

So much cooking… and knitting

The past few weeks have gone by oh so quickly. If you’re friends with me on Facebook, you’ve seen me posting there; however, using an actual laptop or desktop (for personal use) has been non-existent. I’ve already mentioned that I rarely create blog posts on my iPad. This past Sunday, I attended a baby shower and knitted an infant hat, matching booties and another infant hat. I also made two trays of food (one chicken and a spicy rice dish) that were quite popular. I made enough to feed thirty people. I’m hoping that I have time to write actual posts within the next few days; however, I’m fairly sure that will not happen until the Christmas holiday.

December 1: Time flies… when you’re busy!

Wow, has it been super busy for me. I blink… and it’s December. I still have so much to do before my daughter is out of school for the Christmas holidays. We have treat bags to make and I have a few items to knit and sew and also some soap that needs to be made. Sighs… I cannot complain. I do make time to smell the roses, regardless of how busy I am.

Man smoking pipe

This is the first time I’ve been on a computer in almost a week and it shows, since it’s the only time I write my blog posts. While I have written blog posts on my iPad, I really don’t like it that much and so I still do the bulk of my posting on an actual computer.

A few weeks ago, I made this card for my cousin. Like me, she’s a Christian and so I added some Christian sentiments to her card. I’ve used this stamp once before and I thought it would be nice to use it again for her. I also made a matching envelope and included a few home made lip balms in her note. My goodness it took me a while to mail that out, but I finally did.
