Pink Ribbon Tree for Sandy!


As a lot of you may know my sister is a breast cancer patient and has been going through some pretty rough symptoms, treatments and procedures.  She has always been called "Aunt Sandy Claus" by all the nieces and nephews in our family and was well known to go over-the-top on Christmas...whether it be decorations, gifts or sweets.  The last year or so she was not able to put up a tree and her standard decorations.  My husband and I offered with the assistance of our adult children to go and put up her tree and decorations for her but she just wasn't feeling well enough to even do that.  So we got a little tree from Candy Messer at Pier 17's Whistler's Catch gift shop and we decorated it as a pink ribbon themed tree...and this is a picture she took of it...so glad she likes it!

December Ornament Blog Hop!!


 Good Day and welcome to my Den!  Once again it is time for our Pride to pounce through our creations and bring you the PURRfect projects for the Holidays!  So please join me and the rest of the Pride of Just a Few Friends! Our WILD adventure for this month is to create a Christmas Ornament.  As you join us in our quest today and hop along with us you will be introduced to 13 different styles! 13 different inspirations to create something beautiful to enjoy your Christmas...If you landed here by chance, visit Elsa's Blog so you can hop along from the beginning and not miss a thing.  BTW...did you all know that a mother lion will move her cubs and den site several times a month...so I guess it is cool that we have a blog event every month!!!

 My Ornament for this blog hop is a pair of Crocheted lace Christmas Baby Booties!  I have recently started creating Baby things because my husband and I are about to be grandparents for the first time!  So I created these booties to decorate our trees...I made a pair for my step-daughter, Callie and her husband, Rob(THE NEW PARENTS TO BE), her mother and step dad, Rob's parents and of course another pair for our tree!



At the end of this blog post I have shown some other projects I have been working on for local craft shows I have been doing.  I have had a lot of fun and have met some wonderful new local crafting friends in the process. If you please...check them out and then hop on along with the others!
