Christmas party...

Oh I forgot it's Christmas party day...oh my...well if you notice there are Christmas pressies I've made...and if you scroll down there is a free tutorial for the holidays...and then lets sing

Jingle Bells...wohoo

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
We got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh yeah

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

Gifts from my wonderful friends

Well as many of you know we had a fire this summer that destroyed all our Christmas decorations...well I have been amazed, thrilled, and touched by the "gifts" that my dollmaking friends have sent me...first many went together and sent us a tree...yes there will be pictures when it's if that isn't enough...Kerry sent me a mini tree to replace the one she had so graciously given to me several years ago, eggie sent me a whole box of Christmas goodies and Sue sent me the wonderful tree I posted on a couple of weeks ago, mom of course beaded my treetop and gave me a gnome ornament...and still packages keep coming are ornaments with the givers name on them...there are no words to say how wonderful this has made me feel...a time I thought I would dread I'm truly excited to decorate...thank you each and everyone of you and truly these will be cherished...
