merry christmas!

This little angel graced the Christmas trees of my youth. My mother passed it on to me shortly after Stephen and I were married (almost 25 years ago) and she has been on the top of our tree ever since. She always reminds me of those wonderful Christmas mornings where my sister and I would race into the living room to see what Santa had left for us. Those gifts were always placed with loving care at the front and centre under the tree; ready for us to pick up and play with immediately. Two particularly memorable years were the one where I received my Baby Tenderlove doll and then the year I received my little green portable radio/record player (which I still have).

Experiencing Christmas through the eyes of a child...especially your own, is wonderful in a completely different way. Setting up the Fisher Price Castle or the Criss Cross Crash set late on Christmas Eve...special times. Seeing my wee one with his wide eyes of surpise and delight...I will cherish those memories forever.

I hope you all enjoy this special time with family and friends.

Wishing you and your's the best of the season. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

fibre feast

The last plate in our fibre feast round robin arrived in the mail today...Laurie's appetizer plate.

How about Suanne's crab claws? Just awesome. Suanne also included her fabio milk carton which will become part of the TV dinner. The inside of the carton is lined with cow print. Too cute.

I have to admit, when the idea of this was first proposed at ArtFiberFest, I wasn't sure what to expect. Now, as we near the conclusion of this wonderful art adventure, I can honesty say I will be sorry to see it end.

Guess that means we will have to come up with a plan for Fibre Food II, eh?

six weird things

I was tagged by Shari this morning to mention six weird things about myself, so here it goes...

1. I wear three earrings in my right ear and only two in my left...decided to get one extra hole put in my right ear many moons ago. I was going through an asymetrical phase (my hair was also asymetric at the time).

2. I was kissed by a killer whale on a stormy night at Seaworld, Ohio when I was ten.

3. Got to drive a stockcar (which was WAY COOL!)

4. Along with my team mate Rob, we became grand champions on a local game show "Talk About" back in October '89. We won $12,700 in cash and prizes (which was pretty good for a Canadian game show at the time).

5. I am a confessed Starbucks addict, but I never, EVER drink coffee...can't stand the stuff.

6. When I was a child, had a real chicken as a pet that I used to dress up and push around in a pram.

So, now that I have professed my weirdness to all...I tag Heather B and my fabulous fibre feast pals Lori S-C, Laurie G, Suanne, Carla, and Jen. You're it!
