~~~~~Merry Christmas~~~~~

 December has been a busy month..I always think I'll be able to get more done that I have time for : )

This is my first year making teacher's gifts!  I made these fun pencil pouches with my favorite Kumiko Fujita text print.  Check in the New Year for a tutorial and pattern 
to make these : )

It has been a month of celebration!

A BIG birthday for me spent with my boys on the Washington Coast at the lovely little town of Seabrook.  My husband treated me to a massage at the local spa and cooked all weekend.  It was so nice to get away during the hustle and bustle of the holidays and spend some quality time with my family.

My husband and I belong to a dinner club with a group of friends.   This month's festivies included a 1936 Murder Mystery along with dinner.  It was so much fun!

Wishing you peace and joy this Christmas from my family to yours : )
