It's Christmas time!!!

This is my morning coffee break friend! This squirrel is so darn cute! It will look right at me, when I talk to it. I don't think that makes me crazy, does it? But if you ask my family they would probably say I am! LOL We are having a winter storm right now here in Michigan. All of our schools in our county are already closed for tomorrow!! It's the first big real snow of the season for us! But that means we'll be having a White Christmas! Yay!!

I haven't blogged in a super long time, but I thought I'd show why! I've been doing Santa Workshops and Craft shows and working like a little elf!! Here are a few pics from my last craft show of the season, I did yesterday. It was my best one I did as far as selling! I had a few people come back from last year hoping I was there!
This is a cute little gift bagg I made up with bubble bath, etc. the bagg it's self is so adorable!

These candies were a hit! Most people got them for stocking stuffers, and some got them for themselves to eat!  They are very good. I sold quite a few of my little shoe pin cushions! 

These are little baggs I made up for people to give their dogs. I sold out of these. I made a few cat goodies too. A couple of ladies were buying them for their grand-dogs!! Too cute!!

This is the end with my gift baskets. Can you see the berry baskets I put teapots, teas and candy in? I just love how they turned out! You can't see it, but I have them on Sim's old sled, he had as a kid. I like the way it gives height to the table.

I realize that people like the unique little things I make, like my gift tags, and little gift baggs too. They also like my display pieces! I usually just go out in my yard or potting shed and get something to use. These two are my favorites. The one in the back is an old berry picking crate. I got it at an estate sale. The one with the greenery and ornies, I found in the trash. It is part of an old desk drawer. 

Now the rush is on for Christmas. I really have to kick it out and have pretty much everything done by this Thursday. I have been having problems with my bladder and alot of pain. So, I will be having surgery on Friday again. I am praying I will be feeling good by Christmas Eve. I'll be spending that with my son Danny, and the rest of my family and cuzins! I've done that ever since the year I was born! We have alot of fun, and food!! We stay home for Christmas day. But the day after Christmas we will be spending it with our little cutie pie Caylee Roxanne!
It is her first Christmas and I can't wait!!
I hope everyone has a great Christmas. It probably won't be til after the holiday that I blog again. I have missed you guys, but have been checking in.
Love ya, Fran. XOXO

Wow Fran! I am so glad that you did so well at the craft show! I can see why! Such darling treasures you have created! The little snowman bag is precious and the goodie bags for pets- genius! How cute that you can use Sim's old sled. Ah, the memories! I wonder where my old wooden sled went?

You'll be in my prayers on Friday, dear friend. I pray that you will get relief from the pain. Katie says you should go get ice cream when you are done.:) Big Hugs, Lori

Wow! What a wonderful craft show. So many goodies. Roo and I were planning to do doggie treats, too! I did them many years ago.

I'll be praying for you. Hoping you'll be pain free!

Hi Fran, I found you thru Amy's blog. It's so nice to meet you and I thoroughly enjoyed all your beautiful hand-crafted items. My husband is originally from Detroit but has been in the south now longer than he was in MI! My prayers are with you for your upcoming surgery and I hope you will feel like blogging again after the first of the year. Merry Christmas.

Things are finally calming down a bit, which is good because I'm pretty much drained!

Looks like you've been keeping those fingers flying yourself. I'm so honored to have one of your little dresses for Mary! For now, it hangs on her little Christmas tree in her bedroom. Afterwards, it'll most likely grace one of her many, many stuffed animals!
