All of the planning and preperation that goes into Christmas and then it's over, just like that! I can't help but feeling a little down the first few days but got my mojo back today and I am looking forward to the new year and making a resolution to enjoy life more and to have more fun! I have sort of gotten stuck in a rut for the last little while and I haven't been involved in a lot of things that I like to do and i am going to change that this year! I know that life is short and the older I get, the more I realize that. There are so many things on my bucket list.. So I better get started!!!!
My winter village barn. I didn't even put out the
whole village this year. It just takes so much space and time and I never found enough time to do it!
She thinks she's a present!
Had a wonderful white Christmas! My grandaughter, Cheyenne is two this year and she enjoyed opening her presents so much! She would open one and then say, "ok, I'm ready for another one"! She makes everything in my life magical when I see it through her eyes! My brother in law came in from North Carolina and got snowed in with us and got to stay and extra day!
This is some of the cross stitch projects that I worked on over the holidays! Still not finished with the Santa and sleigh pic, but almost. I should be able to finish it this evening then I am starting on a snowman picture. I hadn't made any cross stitch ornaments in years so I decided to make these. They are finished now and I will post some pics of them soon! A couple of them are on their way to friends. Better late than never, I guess!
I have been feeding the birds during the cold and snowy weather. I love watching them! Been testing out my new lens for my camera too and have been able to get some pretty good pictures!
The view from my house looking off the mountain.
Last but not least, I'll leave you with some snowy scenes from my house in the appalachian mountains of southern West Virginia! Til next time.......Leisha
I have been a crafter for many years!! Have tried almost everything atleast once! My favorites are quilting, cross stitching and sign making, which I have been doing alot of this fall! I Love looking at others blogs and things that they have created! Married to a wonderful man named Steve and I have one daughter named Erica and a grandaughter, Cheyenne, who is the light of my world! I can't believe how wonderful being a grandmother is! Finally taking some time in my life to slow down and do the things that I've always wanted to do. Still working part time as a nurse but devoting more time now to creating and hope to have a little shop running soon! I live in the southern coal fields of West Virginia and part time on my little farm in Ohio and I love both of them!
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. ~Eleonora Duse
