I hit the jackpot this year on the gift exchange.
I thought Lori had made this Christmas stocking, but she says it is from Hobby Lobby.
There was also a very pretty journal, which I will enjoy very much.
Opening all the small gifts was like Christmas morning. I thought I took pictures of these as well, but I must not have. I will take one of the owl pincushion made by Gloria next time- it is so cute!
Charlie and I used a gift certificate he got as a retirement gift to eat at The Angus Barn in Raleigh with our friends Ricky and Mary. They decorate it beautifully at this time of year, but you can always count on seeing lots of quilts hanging on the walls.
I have continued to paint lots of angels, and sent this one to a relative who just turned 90.
I think that soon I will be offering these for sale in an Etsy shop to raise money for cancer research, a subject close to my heart.
I hope that you are enjoying the holiday season. Busy as it always is, Christmas time is my favorite. I have been sharing a Bible journaling page each day of December to try to keep in mind the "reason for the season." Here is one that I did recently.
