A Blessed Merry Christmas...

Here is a late Merry Christmas wish for all of my blogging friends.
I have been so caught up with work, shopping, decorating, and get togethers that I haven't taken the time to blog.  I do hope that you all had a blessed holiday and are enjoying the sweet sounds, sights, and smells of what this time of year brings.  We spent Christmas day with at my oldest sister's home along with my parents.  It was a small but simple and meaningful day.  The weather was so nice as you can see in our picture, no coats and 40 degrees.  I am decorating with ALL my snowmen tomorrow...that is one of my favorite things to put throughout our home....I have so many that each one means alot to me.  I can't believe that 2012 is upon us, didn't we just get done ringing in the New Year of 2011?  We have alot to be thankful for and am excited that we have a daughter who is a senior and will graduate in May...so the next 5 months will be busy for all of us.  I leave you with some of my New Years Resolutions that I plan to work on diligently!
1. Excercise more
2. Eat less
3. Organize my house 
4. Take more time for the simple things
5. Read more books
I hope that whatever you are doing that you do it well and heres to a great 2012....CHEERS!
Blessings~

Happy Thanksgiving!

I want to wish all my blogging friends a very Happy Thanksgiving!  We are traveling to my sister in laws for the day, we are so blessed to have such gorgeous weather and everyone in our house is healthy.   I hope that whatever you are doing with this "thankful" holiday that you take time like we all should and count the many blessings we do have each and every day!  We will be decorating our home for Christmas on Friday, so that will take a chunk of my weekend...gotta love that part of it!
Enjoy your time with your families and love every minute of the wonderful fixins!

Craft show weekend

Hi Peeps....
Hope this Friday finds you happy and getting geared up for the holidays that are around the corner.  I am getting excited for an upcoming craft show that is this Sunday, my sister and I are doing it together in Geneva Ne.  I love setting up and tweaking each time space that I get at these shows.  I have so many neat snowmen, wreaths, primitive holiday decor, old windows, and some great inexpensive Christmas gifts.  I will post pictures of my booth after Sunday.  
Our family is traveling to my sister in laws house for Thanksgiving Day. It is hard to believe that it is rolling in like a streak of lightening.  Didn't summer just end and school start?  
I hope that you have a good weekend.....
Blessings~

I'M BACK!

Good morning  Peeps~  I know I know its shocking to see me blogging, but I have lots of reasons that kept me from doing so.  I am so excited to say that all my craft shows have been a success!  This time of year is such a pretty time...I love the crisp air, colorful trees, pumpkins, football and the fact that my husband is done with a successful harvest! This is such a great feeling!   If anyone knows of someone that makes primitive snowman bowl fillers I would be interested in an assortment, I have several craft projects that would need some so please pass the word!  
What have you been doing this fall?  Post a comment on my blog to let me know so we can get caught up.
I hope you have a fallisious day!
Blessings-
Leslie

Words for Wednesday....

Good Morning Peeps, 
I have an official day off and it feels awesome!  I have my glue gun plugged in, Autumn Sunset candle burning and a coffee in hand.  I have several craft shows in the near future so I need to make my time count...but I had to take time to post on my blog.....priorities first RIGHT?..lol.
This Saturday 2 of my very dear friends and I are venturing to Hillsboro KS to a very LARGE Fall craft show...this is the craft show of all craft shows.  There are over 350 vendors on the streets of Hillsboro and I get so many awesome ideas and a start to my Christmas shopping too.  We have a blast each time we go and we are already talking about our plans for next years trip.  The forecast looks so great to go on this venture and that makes it even better.  It is nice and cool here today in Nebraska, cloudy and 60's for high temps, my kind of crafting and baking weather.
So with that I better get back to what I took this day off for....
I hope whatever you are doing with your day you make the most of it...
Blessings~
