Christmas is coming

Are you ready? Getting ready? Almost ready?

I love Christmas, I love midnight Mass, getting together with family and friends, I love making cookies and special meals, getting up early to get the turkey in the oven and I guess in some ways I love giving gifts. But I no longer want to spend hundreds of dollars buying and stressing about the gifts. This year, for the most part I'm making most of my gifts. Little things, nothing extravagant, but made with love. As I'm sewing a little of this and a little of that I'm thinking about the very important people in my life and it gives me great joy and happiness.

But today I'm sewing some tree ornaments that I'll be swapping with folks from around the world. And I'll be thinking about these fine people and hope that this Christmas will be as special to them as it is to me.
