I am going to start sketching animals just to switch it up. I am drawn to the lion because I am a Leo. Rrrrrrrrrr. I am so a Leo!
I wanted to give you a tour of my home and some the ornaments that I got from my Christmas Swap(I just got the last one on Friday) but since I have to get a new card for my camera. I will show you some Christmas things that are important to me.
This one was a set so my sister Heidi and I spit the set up. I know, I know we are bad. But we both get to have memories when we look at them.
This little guy was Nelly's first ornament. It is broken at the top and a little worn out but it reminds me of my sweet little girl. She is not allowed to have it until I am dead. And that is not going to be for a long time. I also have her stocking that I told her she could not have until that time. She still has to come to my house and get her presents.
This is also my parents. It is a bank that they always had sitting somewhere in the house. I love this. It sits on one of my mantel in the dining room.
This is the last I will show you today. But this Rabbit is the rabbit I gave my Mother when she was in the nursing home. My mother collected and made stuffed bears. She was so talented. I knew she would love this one. It is a little Christmas Bunny. When I gave it to her I knew that she loved it because I got a happy reaction from her. It was our very last Christmas together. So you can tell that my parents really made a wonderful impression on me. In our household as in most Christmas time was the most joyous time full of art, fun, family and friends. I will never forget those memories. How lucky I am to have grown up with such a close knit family with lots of love. Nothing more you could ask for. I have such deep gratitude for my parents.
Well I hope you enjoyed. Now I am off to do the last of my Christmas Shopping.
Happy Shopping to you all! I hope you are more prepared then I am.
Next year I swear I am going to be more organized. (I think I say this every year)
