Secret Santa

Secret Santa Table topper or wall hanging.
This is going to the post office today...hope my secret pal enjoys using it as much as I enjoyed making it!  This has been a fun swap...thank you to Joan and Kelly!  It is fun to see all the beautiful Secret Santa gifts that are in Santa's sleigh all ready!

We got back from Dallas on Sunday morning, and as soon as we got home and unpacked, started putting up the Christmas tree.  This Thanksgiving was spent in Dallas with my sister and her family. It is so much fun to be able to spend the morning in the kitchen with my sister and my mother, cooking, laughing, sampling the food....good memories! 

After five days off...it is hard to get in gear and go back to work!  Especially with so much that needs to be done here at home!  Tis the season to get stressed out...I am trying very hard not to!

Try not to stress and only do those things that bring you joy!! I'm talking to myself here as well! I'm really trying to pare down to the essentials when it comes to decorating and shopping. Most of my major shopping is going to be online this year and I hope to have more homemade gifts but I'm not staying up till all hours to get it done. If it happens it happens. PLEASE take time for YOU...rest...get enough sleep and have a cup of tea or coffee on me...Grandmama Jane!! I'll visit later
Blessings
