peace, love and joy

Friday, December 14, 2007

Everything over here is in pretty much the same state. The half completed state.
Half of the cards, half of the shopping, half of the sewing, one glove to be knit, one hat to be knit, half of the wrapping, half of the tree decorating, even Libby's craft, half way finished. She has joy written, and I noticed a heart on one side this morning. I guess we are just looking for a little peace.

Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. We made oranges with cloves in them one year when we were kids. My mom left them out to dry and had them for years after. The wonderful scent lasted a long time.

    Good luck finishing the other half of everything!

  2. I've got a bowl of oranges pricked with cloves on my coffee table as well. We used to make them with my mom when I was little and the holidays just don't seem the same without them!

  10. Well it sounds like you have the love and joy covered, so yes, a little peace is due. Good luck with all of the half finished items! If it makes you feel better, I have only shopped for one person (bff Moe). There's still time!

    That is exactly how I feel! Presents wrapped but not mailed, half the lights on the tree, half the Christmas letters signed and mailed. I hope we both get our things done!

  23. I love pomanders. I make them each year around the holidays but haven't gotten to it this year. Seeing your joyful one makes me want to buy some cloves.

  24. Hi Leslie, did you get my email back about my email address? I hope you're still not having trouble emailing me?
    I'm pretty much ready for Christmas, didn't do much gift knitting this year, but I hope to next year now that I'm very much in to knitting :-)
    Hugs Denise

  25. leslie, i sent oyu an email, but i am not sure if you got it. when you get a chance send me your address! (smithbrothersbowdoinham@yahoo.com) i can't wait to get your goodies out to you!
    I read the pattern for the throw you made your mother in law. I am going to try it. it sounded pretty easy. I just can't decide if i should make it in chocolate brown, or the linen color they show with the pattern....

  26. Very cool craft idea. I am adding that to the growing list of great ideas I am stealing from you. And if it makes you feel any better, we don't have a tree, our Christmas cards went to our old house (I am sure of it, even though we had our mail forwarded), I am still not finished gift buying, we are hosting dinner Christmas eve and we are still not all unpacked. You are likely much further ahead of the game. I am pulling for you.
