where have you been?

I've been dragging dead tree branches inside of the house.

.. and painting and glittering...

so that I can hang them from the ceiling in preparation for some Christmas magic.

I've been watching weepy Hallmark movies
and reading gooey books that put my mind at ease and get me into the holiday spirit.

I've been watching girls play outside in their pajamas.

Been planning our annual New York city Christmas shopping trip.

I've been creating little fuzzy pom poms

and darling little snowmen.

I've been watching selfie create mirror images of herself from clay.

pretty awesome.. huh!

We have been celebrating a 12th birthday.

and now..

I am going to chill with my book and a bubbly bubbly bath.
Happy Week Friends

The little clay "self portraits" are too cute!! And a bubble bath and book sounds heavenly. My could-be bath time is now spent blogging ;)

New York?? For Christmas shopping? That is the dream my friend! You actually live it!

You have been super busy! I love it all, need to check out some movies I think, although I need no encouragement to weep. I cried watching Hannah Montana yesterday!
You certainly passed on your creative genes! Happy 12th birthday, we will be blowing out 12 candles here next month.

I'm sure your house is going to look like a Winter Wonderland! You are so talented. I'm reading that other book you said you were reading, The Thanksgiving Target. And last night I was also watching a Hallmark movie. LOL I did fall asleep in the middle of it though. Happy B-day to your girl!
