just a note.

I feel as though I need to apologize for the lack of posting and overall quietness that my blog has been experiencing these past few days; James and I are trying very hard to do a ‘Handmade Christmas’ this year. I’ve been a very busy bee…actually, Prunella has been the busy bee (I think that I’ve even been dreaming about sewing). At least I’m getting something done. It feels good to see my ‘Handmade Christmas’ vision come to fruition. I’ve heard that a lot of other families are trying to steer their Christmas festivities in the same direction, something which pleases me greatly. I love Christmas, but I hate the consumerism that has seeped into so many peoples homes (although I do feel that is an all-year-round problem, not just a December issue). I hate the panic and mayhem over getting the biggest and best gifts, giving and receiving. So my personal solution to combat the Grinch from entering our home is to make gifts. Simple. Thoughtful. Thus the reason for my absence from the blogging world. My apologies to those of you who are going through Bria withdrawal…I’ll be back soon:)

    handmade gifts are the BEST. would love to see them. will you share them with us? i’m making some too. i made some potholders with little bits and pieces of past patchwork blankets that i have made. πŸ™‚ and i want to make more. this whole creating thing is rather addicting, heh?

    very cool idea, bri. but i’m still going through bri withdrawal. especially since i can’t just drive out and drink all your coffee while i watch you sew. lol. but i can be patient. πŸ˜› P.S. Thanks for the hot chocolate with marshmallows. I could smell it all the way across the ocean…
