We went to the guy’s work party last night. So fun. Holiday parties always make me feel so festive. We listened to Christmas music while we got all dressed up. It was chilly outside, and we looked at Christmas lights on our way downtown. We took pictures of all the Christmas trees. It was just a really nice evening to celebrate and learn how to gamble with pretend money.
And I am also deeply happy that my date for every event for the rest of my life is so charming and handsome.

During this cold spell, we have been doing all the cozy things you are supposed to do.
We spent a lazy evening watching a movie and eating dessert in our fuzzy socks.
Found some new types of tea, and whipped up some decorations out of some fabric scraps.
Lost my husband in a mountain of stuffed animals.
Working towards ultimate cozy time with a new afghan.

We decided on (impulse bought) a tiny real tree this year. You can’t beat that Christmas tree smell. We used our plaid fabric ornaments and some gingerbread men to decorate it.
Since the tree was just a little guy, we had some extra lights left over, so we put them around the house. The lighting makes the house look so cozy.
I also just finished up this cross stitch. Gotta have those festive dish towels.

Ta-da! My first crocheted scarf. It turned out pretty stellar, if I may compliment myself. I would totally be wearing it right now if it wasn’t reminiscent of a warm spring day outside.
I am not, by any definition of the word expert, an expert crocheter. But my ma helped me out semi-following these directions, and I got some help from this youtube lady here. After just a couple minutes of watching, I was crocheting so much faster than her (if you watch the video, this would be a joke).
It only took about an evening to make, so scarves for everyone!

I got lucky and celebrated two Thanksgivings. I was extra thankful this year.
First came Thanksgiving in the Northwest. No snow, but plenty of cold, snuggly evenings crocheting and eating pie. And I never get sick of those mountains.
Next came turkey day in Texas with my one, true love. I love Thanksgiving because I can wish all the people Happy Thanksgiving in America. Giving thanks is for everyone.

I added a couple more holiday card designs to the shop, including this little owl. A great little Thanksgiving craft to work on between turkey and pie!
