Best Intentions

In a perfect world, I had anticipated having dozens of thoughtfully prepared handmade gifts done for family and friends completed months ago.  Also, I was sure to have the house spotless and the hallway and utility room freshly painted.  I'm in retail, so obviously that didn't happen.

Here and there, I've tried to steal away moments to keep my spirits up and enjoy the season in my own special way.  

I made these adorable cupcake ornaments from the Very Merry Advent E-book.  These were to be gifts for everyone, but I kept them for myself...gah, I'm terrible!
 
Enjoying my neighbors lights, sadly all they can see is my pink tree in the window.

Christmas cards were sent - a miracle!  I loved using the Cavallini Christmas Birds Set from the store.  For whatever reason they weren't big sellers and are now on sale - grab one for next year - they are just the bees knees!

Assembled a winter's bouquet of heritage camellias and mistletoe!  Right next to our harvest of Meyer lemons!
 
And lastly, a little Christmas shopping - well, at least the cats will be thrilled!
