Nov 9, 2014

I have to apologize for such a long absence. This year has been interesting for us, to say the least. I don't usually blog about personal things, but we discovered in March that my Hubs had a brain tumor. He had surgery to remove it in April. Thankfully, it was not malignant, and the surgery went very well. Anyone who has been involved in rehab from brain surgery will understand why my focus has been elsewhere these past months. Happily, he is back to very near his normal personality and activity, and I am back to designing printables, and sewing quilts.

New for Christmas 2014 is this large, ready to frame, Christmas Collage. I've had a lot of requests for larger designs, so expect to see them from now on.

This sweet little Christmas girl and her snowflakes come in two sizes, 8" x 10" or 4" x 6". Beautiful to frame and hang. Available through Etsy  here.

Also new for Christmas this year are these Santas. I love them in the soft, Ecru tones, so subtle.

There are six different Vintage Santa images in this set. See the set here.

I'll have more new things to share soon, and there should be some new Freebies for Christmas to share later this week. I hope your Turkey Day preparations are going well.

The Dog and I are glad to be back!
