Tomorrow begins the 12 DAYS of Christmas ornament swap I have now participated in for four years. What a thrill, I must say. It is so hard to receive all these darling wrapped gifts in the mail and NOT open them, but I have been good.
I feel blessed to be among these wonderful eleven artists who create from their hearts and soul. My day is #10.
On December 10th I will select a winner for an ornament similar to the one I exchanged in this swap. Tell me your favorate Christmas moment and you will be added in the drawing. I love Christmas story moments, don't you?
Here is a little tiny sneak preview of what I have created.
Tomorrow begins Day 1. I can't wait. Sometimes in the years past I even stayed up until after midnight so that I could open them. It is just such a joy. And the joy continues year after year as I take my ornaments from these gals and place them on my tree. This year I found a white Christmas tree for my dinning room table, placing some of the ornaments on it. But some also go on the BIG Little tree in our living room.
Last year, in the midst of posting my ornaments day by day, we lost power and ended up in a hotel room. I am so glad and happy that this won't happen now that we are in the middle of this amazing Arizona desert. So many good things are happening here.
Life is GOOD because GOD is GOOD all the time!!!
Merry Blessed Christmas! Let the festivities begin!!!!
