Do you feel 2016 has been a tremendously chaotic and painful year for our world? It seems to me this last year has been charged with more hate, turmoil and sadness than in previous years.
I’m a big Jacquie Lawson fan, and love using her greeting cards for all kinds of occasions all year long. My absolute favorite, however, has to be her Advent Calendars. Haven’t missed one yet!
We’re kicking it off today! This might very well be my favorite time of year –other than the Christmas season itself– because I have so much fun designing holiday projects!
Mid-year, that is. As usual, time flies when you’re having fun, and this year has been no exception. In just a few days, July will be rolling in.
It’s been well over a year since my sewing circle last met. Not only did I move out of the city, but it seems the rest of the members also ended up scattered, and coming together once a week became challenging.
That is, for Christmas in July! Wow, where did the time go? It’s amazing to me that we are already at the mid-year point. And yes, that means that starting on Monday, July 1, we will be starting our traditional Christmas in July celebration at Angie’s Bits ‘n Pieces.

As you know, I am a fan/supporter of Playing for Change. So I was delighted to see their latest video quite appropriate reflects my own Christmas sentiments. From my corner of the world, here is a little holiday greeting! 🙂
I am so terribly tempted to pat myself on the back and praise myself for being oh, so very brilliant sometimes. But I can’t take the credit here, because it belongs to all you wonderful friends who accepted the invitation to join in and share so generously!
I am a BIG Jacquie Lawson fan. And I know some of you are, too. If not… you just might enjoy visiting her website and checking out her e-cards and other goodies.
I came across a little project that combines itty bitty scraps with Christmas! And it involves two favorites of mine… circles and trees!

Boy, this has been a busy week, getting files prepared for posting and images all in order. As a reward (that’s how I see it), my *baby* brother is in town for a visit. Which was one of the reasons why I wanted all my patterns for this month finished and ready to go, so […]
