Finally Completed the Christmas Projects!

Where does time go? Sometimes I'm not even aware of the days and how they pass so quickly. I'm only able to get a small amount of tasks done, nothing compared to what I used to. There was a time where I was punctual, when I got projects and deadlines completed on time, or even early! But alas my health (or lack thereof) gets in the way more and more. Lupus is a nasty thing, sometimes it's like having the flu for weeks and weeks without end. It inflicts mind numbing aches and swelling in my hands, feet, toes, knees, practically every joint I need to bend and function. But I made a commitment to myself a long time ago to complete these gifts, and complete them I did. Working on them a little bit at a time, 30 minutes here, 15 minutes there...and about a month and a half late, way past the holiday, they're done....but better late than never, eh? And now I've cleaned my work space of all the holiday stuff and can tackle a few new projects and get a piece ready for my first giveaway for all my terrific followers! Stay tuned for more info on the giveaway. And thank you soooooo much for reading and following my blog!

The final 3 Christmas Stove ornaments. 
One for a friend who used to have an adorable Westie named Sydney. 
It looks just like her! Thanks to Manor House Miniatures I was able to purchase this wonderful little resin replica. The glue under her little feet wasn't quite dry yet when I took this photo.

Always something good baking in the oven. :)
For another friend who loves organic and fresh food!

Raspberry pie in this darling oven. 

Lots of cakes and cookies baking here!
I love chocolate bundt cake!

A yellow bundt cake fresh from the oven.

Crusty French loaf.

A cozy Christmas fireplace ornament for a friend with a very large family. :)
This miniature Nativity scene came from Manor House Miniatures. So unique!
I was dying to try this xylophone project that I saw on a fellow blogger's tutorial list, many thanks and a big shout out to Joanne's Minis for providing such a terrific tutorial! It was so easy to follow the directions in Joanne's very well made and detailed video.
I enhanced the miniature dollhouse I got at Manor House Miniatures by adding tiny shingles for a more realistic effect. 

The tiny train came from Hobby Lobby. So cute!
Fresh baked cookies, and toasted marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate bars for S'mores!

A mini stove and cupboard ornament, for a very dear friend who helps me a lot with driving, errands, and just being there to listen when the going gets tough. :)

And one final old fashioned stove for another dear friend who helps me so much!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! <3 <3 Many mini hugs to all! :D
