Well Here it is a New Year.... How exciting..... Starting fresh with hopes and dreams..

I had a busy December trying to get all my customers looked after along with some entertaining throughout the holidays...

My only tradition is shortbread that I make . My family would be disappointed if they didn't have that to enjoy with a cup of tea..
I keep trying to make the perfect "runny" butter tart too.. Don't alway succeed but they always taste good.
We had friends and family in for dinner a few times..

DH always does a bit of decorating . I love my grapevine angel. She is covered in white lights and looks so pretty at night. I managed to keep some of the santas that I have made in the past so they always have a special place.

We did have a small tree on the other side of the room but can't find a picture of it.....sigh.
Since we downsized from a big house to a smaller home we don't do that much decorating.
Just enough to celebrate the season.

I made 12 of this Christmas wallhanging for some of my friends. Never got one done for myself.

I made this beaded amulet bag and donated it to a silent auction. The proceeds will go to support Sakura House, a hospice in Woodstock Ontario. It always gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling to help out where needed.

I have been working on some commisions for some of my customers and will show you those next time..
That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by and I wish each and every one a very Happy New Year filled with Peace and Love.
