making merry

I promised myself that with little Naia snugly in the sling  all day long, and with my ankle just healing up, and with the lack of sleep that goes with a new little being that I would not try to do much of anything for the holidays. I can barely remember to put on a shirt before I walk out the door let alone do holiday cards.

Yet I find myself staying up to the wee hours doing this...

(Nicole I totally blame you for this, I am completely addicted! Of course, they aren't for me. No they're for our friends. Mostly.)
and doing this...

(Yes, I have a beeswax problem.I LOVE the smell.)

...and spending the day time doing this with Zach...
and this...

When really I need to be taking a cue from the wee one and doing more of this...
Wishing everyone peace on the Solstice.

Awww...it looks like so much loveliness on your little boat right now. Enjoy your orange peels. They look delicious! We're melting beeswax as I type. :)

Oh my goodness, I didn't even realize you were having a baby. Congrtulations, mama. What a beautiful family.

Perhaps you and N were up for part of the eclipse; enchanting that she arrived to see a once-in-four-hundred-year event. May every step we take lead the Way to Peace.

Your beeswax ornaments are gorgeous. So much crafting and love this season it can actually be hard to slow down -- but remember to be good to yourself too.

Your wee one is so so sweet. I miss that baby stage where the sleep with their arms up.

Ah, that's what you did with those pink and red sweaters that we felted. VERY nice. More inspiration for future years.

Happy Solstice! XO my friend.

Super Jen
