I'm still here

I'm still here.
I was going back through my photos and trying to figure out the best way to start back.
So, I'm starting from today and going back...

I finally made some more English Muffins!
Yay for me!!

They have been on my list for probably over a year.

I did lots of yummy Holiday baking

I finished some arm warmer for an order I had received from a
sweet girl I met at the Hemlock festival.
She wanted them made for her and her best friend.

I love the way these turned out. I knitted an extra stripe of light blue to each of the arms for an extra touch of friendship.

We've had sweet playdates with homemade snacks and tattoos.

Oscar decided he wanted to be a tattoo artist. He set up shop complete with a 50's phone, a jar of plant based markers, probably from A Small Green FootPrint, a sign and of course his own work done all over his body, face included. He's moved on from this and wants to start working with henna.

I was a little behind with the advant calendar this year. It was more of a morning, "oh no, I forgot to add to the calendar." and promised to get one in before classes ended that day.
I hope to be more organized next year, I mean, how hard is it to put a message in the calendar for a month...really?!

We had a really fun time with all the families for Holidays.

I bit off more than I could chew this year with all the local Holiday Markets.
I worked and worked and worked, with help from family until after all the
markets were finished, right before Christmas I got sick.
My body was done.
But, I produced some really beautiful candles and lots of soaps!

Well, I think I have done some damage tonight.
I will return with more updates.
