Getting into Holiday Mode

I love me some pretty etsy treasuries... especially when someone is sweet enough to include one of my items.

Festive Felines

Back in the shop for another holiday season are these cards . I am vowing here and now to make some new holiday designs for next year, though...

Six years in a row is a little much, no?

I am so looking forward to the holidays this year, as it will be Whitney's first Christmas and my family will be flying out here, too. But we'll have to figure out a different solution for the tree and presents, I think. She is still in that everything-must-go-into her mouth mode.

And speaking of firsts, I think she said her first word the other week.

What do you think it was?
(of course)

In other news, I will be part of a group art show this weekend. A rather last minute invitation, and the piece in the show is an old one (below), but it should be a good show.

It's been a Whirlwind

It was so windy one night last week that the neighbour's gazebo was picked up and dropped in our backyard.

And I spend much of my day picking up after Whitney.

I never really understood the whole "picking up after their kids" phrase... until now.

Our house is coming together, though. The boxes have all been moved to their respective locations. And I moved my office downstairs - even though I love the room originally designated as Matt's and my shared office space (pictured below in its former state) - as that is where Whitney and I are most of the day.

I will share photos of our personalized spaces in the coming weeks, as we complete each room. So crazy that Halloween has come and gone already this year and Christmas will be here soon! Best get my butt in gear for the holidays.

Oh, and if you're wanting to find out a little more about me and my business, here's an interview I did a while back, that was just posted last week on a cute site.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and your extra hour (for those with daylight savings ending)! Fingers crossed that Whitney does not wake early tomorrow, but we'll just have to wait and see.
