We woke to a solid blanket of snow this morning, which produced smiles throughout the house. Although I have revelled in the warm November (which can be one of the most depressing times in these parts), I must admit I am ready for the white stuff's arrival. It's time to switch gears to all those winter past-times: skiing, skating, drinking hot cocoa, reading, watching movies, moving snow, and cursing the plow driver.
I'm in the spirit of gift giving deeply now. My CreateCrochet Team members on Etsy have so many beautiful options! Our blog now features gift guides, too. The current guide is TOYS! It's worth visiting just to see the brain slug amigurumi! FOR GIFTS: http://www.createcrochet.blogspot.com/!!
This weather is perfect weather for crocheting, of course! Right now I'm working through a large tote bag order a friend has graciously requested for her Christmas giving. We worked together by email to choose custom colors for each one, according to the recipients' tastes. Each one is going to be unique and way cool. Until my yarn order came in, I worked on a few holiday items, including a new hat and scarf set and some tree ornaments that can double as small gift bags (for gift cards, jewelry, money, etc.).
