do what you love ...

I love this time of year .. it makes me smile.
Despite the horrible music at work .. I like the season, itself.
One of my favorite parts is each year when we choose an ornament to 'represent' that year.

If the world does end this year as millions of people are saying - I have to admit I find this ornament worthy of the title : 'last family ornament in the history of ever.'

Christmas, Merry may yours be.
Other than the Christmas music
I really do, do what I love and 
I love what I do
I don't have a dream job
but I don't have a nightmare one, either
I may work too much
and probably won't ever be rich
but I'm lucky in love
I'll take that any day of the week 
... and twice on Sunday.

I made this printable .. just because.

from a desk to an entire room ..

At the beginning of November - we moved into a new house.
Although it was an unexpected move that completely threw us off and beat us up.. it turned out for the best; so I'll just leave it at that. :)

As we unloaded box after box - I kept looking at the husband saying "I don't know how we ever fit into that tiny trailer."

I remember being super stoked about the 'craft area' we made for me exactly a year ago.  I'd never had my own 'area' before for crafts, whole crafts, and nothing but the crafts .. so it was very exciting for me.

... now imagine the excitement about having an ENTIRE ROOM.

Our new home is so big, we had a 'leftover' den area that was donated to my need for crafts.

It's even got this built in desk with a pencil sharpener (look close on the left)
there's more cabinets than I know what to do with, a sky light and shag carpet. 
It pretty much rules. :)

Just in time for winter .. the best time to craft, because you can't be in the sunshine.
105 days until the first day of spring.
