Back in the Blogging Lane!

Nothing like being shut down by technical devices that you have no control over. I'm not going to take you through my computer woes of the last few months.....just know I'm back!
Amy from BumbleBee Lane Cottage hosted a Christmas Swap and I received some wonderful Swap goodies from Sandi Allen of THE PRIMIVE SKATE. Here are a few pictures!

What's not to LOVE?!!! THANK YOU, Sandi! It's all just wonderful and smells soooo good! You can go over to Sandi's blog and see what I gave her, HERE!
We've been battling illness around here most of this month. Our 8 year old son has developed Cellulitis in his leg and we're dealing with that infection with recurring trips to the hospital and lots of antibiotic. Hubby and I still managed to put on a good Christmas despite all of the stress, however, a few things were placed aside such as cards, ornies, and the family letter. I figure I can send those off in another day or so.
I'm back up on my Etsy but will hold back new things for my show this year. I did make this guy for a gift though.

He's a pattern from Chestnut Junction. Can't wait to make more of these guys in various colors of reds and greens!
Here's hoping you and yours are having/had a wonderful Christmas and Happy Holidays all around! I'm enjoying all of my children (6 of them) for the next few days!

 Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!

Good to have you back. Computer problems are the pits.Sick here too. But please be careful with your son and the cellulitis and antibiotics. That's what started my 6 month odyssey of sickness last year.

You did have a wonderful Christmas. You received such extra goodies for being such a good gal I'm sure. No coal for you!

What great items Sandi sent to you! I saw what you sent to her also, and those items are also great. Swaps are so much fun, aren't they? Prayers for your son. 'Seems like a lot of sickness and injury is among we bloggers. The prayer support helps a lot, doesn't it? Oh, and your Christmas decorations are awesome! Prim blessings.
