What Christmas means to me!

C is for the special cookies I bake for my husband even though I would much rather make drop cookies
     than cutouts!

H is for the hours I spend surfiing for that perfect gift and loving every minute of it.

R is for the real meaning of the season - spending time with family and friends.

is for the illusive silent moments I spend looking at the beautiful tree we decorated with glass memories.

S is for singing along with all the carols on the radio since the beginning of November!

T is for the trips we take to each year to my folks - always through a snowstorm for some reason and for 
    all the traditions we embrace year to year.

M is for the childhood memories of waking up and sneaking down to see what Santa left me.

A  is for Alway looking forward to the holiday season each and every year!

S is for sending cards to old friends as a way to keep in touch at least once a year.

Wishing all of you a joyous holiday season and a wonderous New Year!

Scrabble Tile Pendants on Etsy!

I just love making these scrabble tile pendants.  Each one is hand-painted and one-of-a-kind!  Such a unique gift for the hard to buy for on your Christmas list.  There are lots of tile pendants on Etsy, but most are not hand-painted!

I start by inserting a screw eye in the top of the tile.  I prefer this to gluing on a fastener - this won't come off.  I then paint on the design and seal it with a triple coat of Modge Podge. 

Only $10 for a piece of wearable art.  I am also having a sale now for 15% off your entire order so check it out.
