Happy Holidays

Oooweee. I don’t know about you guys but the holidays this year were insane for me and they aren’t even over. I feel like once I came home from my uncle’s wedding at the beginning of November, I hit the ground running at an insane pace and I haven’t stopped since. I mean, there was Thanksgiving where I had to cook a Thanksgiving dinner for two different days (one for the Mister’s work and one for us), and then bake pies for a Friendsgiving we were going to. Right after Thanksgiving was over I had to get my head on straight for gift-giving for Christmas because I had the fun idea to make homemade gifts for everyone this year.

At least my fingerprints look like frost, right?

Yeah… let’s just say that it was a lot easier looking at the photos on Pinterest than it was actually making them. There may or may not have been a moment where I superglued my hand to a wine glass while trying to turn it into a snow globe. >.<

However, given my hair-pulling tenancies over the last few weeks, I still stand behind giving homemade gifts. I think they are just cooler and mean more to the people involved. Which means I will probably be doing this again next year. 😛

 

Anyways, my bad for not being on much this week. I had a friend visiting from out of town for a couple of days and there was a lot of catching up going on and not a whole heck of a lot of reading/blogging happening. I promise to be back up and running at full force once the holidays are over.  I will still be around but I just may not be posting as often as I normally do.

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and a happy and safe new year!

9 Thoughts on “Happy Holidays

  1. Sounds like a very busy couple of months! Hope yall have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. It’s a great idea to make the gifts. That looks hard though. Glad you didn’t glue yourself to the glass! I was planning on making southern snowballs. You use cotton bolls from the plants. I couldn’t get it done because they harvested before i grabbed some.

    Happy Holidays!

    • I’ve never heard of southern snowballs (there’s never been a reason to since I’m from the north) but it sounds cool. Sucks that you didn’t get any of the cotton balls before they harvested them. I wanted to so something with cotton balls where you string them up on fishing line and hang them so that it looks like snow falling… but I kinda forgot about that until just now. LoL whoops

  3. I am no good at homemade unless its food. And then it tastes good but doesn’t look so hot.
    Merry Christmas

    • I’m the same way. I try but I’m a lot better at making food than I am at crafting something cute together. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. 🙂

  4. I think homemade gifts are awesome! Hope you are having a great holiday.

  5. Pinterest makes everything look easy. lol Sometimes busy is nice because when the holidays are over, feel even more relaxed and relieved.
