It's the most wonderful time of year.

So I was tagged by Karen Travels but I'm going to bend the rules a bit on this meme.

My 7 randoms will be what I'm enjoying so far this holiday season.

1. Sara Bowen's Twelve Days of Christmas online class. She has the best Christmas playlist on there and so many great ideas for a crafty holiday.
2. My email chats with Natalie and Vee. Just wish I was closer so I could have scrappy time with these ladies.
3. The honest sales girl that tells me not buy a certain top/dress. Thanks to her, I found an outfit for my Christmas party that's cute, comfortable and festive! I hate to use the word comfortable....I can hear Stacy and Clinton (TLC What Not To Wear) right now. They hate when some one just wants comfort but it's not like I'm going in sweats. I think they would approve :) I'm going to pick these lovelys up today to finish it off.

4. New daily reads.
Holly McCaig - Love that she has simple photo tips.....and cute bangs.
Sew Mama Sew - Some great sewing tutorials here! I'm so addicted.
Soulemama - Another crafty/sew blog.
The sewing projects are getting better btw. Feeling a lot more confident as more projects get done.
5. Mellow Christmas melodies. These are my current favs. *for some reason it's not playing, you can click "get music tracks" and see what they are.*



6. My bottle brush Christmas tree collection. I like to wait for them to go on sale, then nab a bunch. *note* these are not photos from my personal collection.
1. Beautiful Sunday -- 12.10, 2. Bottlebrush Christmas trees, 3. Paperclay Snowman Jar, 4. 009: 12.20.06, 5. Technicolor Trees #2, 6. Pastel Bottle Brush Trees
7.Getting my Christmas bonus early this year!
