Well the hustle and bustle of the last 3 months took me off to a land of little sleep and lots of work.
I have so many things I would like to share about what has gone on over the past 3 months but I feel like these memories are a bit fuzzy.
Let me start with the wonderful world of Christmas (or I should say Christmas parties that took up most of my November and December)
I love what I do but I can say with firm conviction that in the months of November, December, and July (Stampede in Calgary is ridiculously busy)
I have just a little e taste with this winter themed table that I worked on with my dear friend and co-worker Alleisha; I would also like to credit her as the photographer (her company has been mentioned previously in past posts White Owl Photography).
Christmas this year was extra special for me. To start I had a goal to make 90% of the gifts that I gave to everyone. So every spare moment I had, I spent making clutches, “elf” stockings, vases, cookie jars, paintings, and a few other little treasures.
I have to say that this really made me feel like I was a BIG part of this Christmas tradition and I felt so much love for the people that I made things for.
In the Larsen clan we do a gift exchange by drawing names. My Big brother D had my name this year. I have to say I did not expect much because I knew that he was working away and would not be able to do much shopping. I had put a coat on hold that I loved and told him about it – but he told me that he was not going to be in town so I forgot all about it.
Christmas day came and to my surprise I opened my gift and there it was! I have to say that my dear sweet big brother mad me cry. I had forgotten all about this coat and I felt so much LOVE. Christmas is not about the gifts but the thought behind them and I have to say I loved every bit of Christmas 2011 because of that fact.
I have had a busy January as well but I hope for it all to slow down just in time for the month of Birthdays. This month I have so many friends that will be reaching new milestones and to them all I wish them nothing but the very best!
