Sneak Peek at January’s Posts





Dear friends, I’m on a bloggy vacation, so I’m not going to do an actual post until  Jan. 3rd’s Tuesday Tea.  I just finished up the quilted tote bags for my giveaway winners last night and will be shipping them tomorrow. While I'm spending this week learning how to sew with my new Serger, I thought I’d leave you with a few sneak peeks at January’s posts.  I do hope you are enjoying as lovely a holiday as I have been! 

So what’s coming up for January? Well, here’s the list so far…

    Photo Credit for Top Photo~ The photo of me at the top, was my youngest son's idea. He is pictured with the pool stick in  my hubby's office/rec room. He is 16, loves photography and has a photo blog.  I asked him to take a photo of my hands drawing my sleep sack pattern and he said, "Just hold it right there,  Mom, and look up at me." That boy is just a natural photographer I guess. I certainly would never have thought to do a 'pose' like that.  I guess the Lord knew that I needed a 'live in' photographer to help me with my blog. LoL!

    Donna, I had the craziest dream last night that I was that a party and you were there too!! I guess I've just had all your awesome Christmas posts on my brain!

    I can't wait to read these full posts!

    Donna said...

    That is such a sweet thing to say! Really, Mommypants, all I do is post what I do..and that's whatever happens to pop up. These are things that I either had to do and or that have come up in conversation with friends. I'm so relieved to know that 'real life' is interesting to read about. Ha! Where do you live? Perhaps we should meet. LOL!

    I can't wait to see what you are up to in Jan! I'm glad you had a nice Christmas...we did too...actually the best EVER! Thank you for your words of wisdom in my teen post...you have given me a lot to think about in a way I may not have before.

    Over Yonder said...

    Oh and I like that picture your son took of you!!

    Ursula said...

    Can' hardly wait, it is such a pleasure to read and the themes are very, very interesting...
    thanks for sharing

    A new serger ... how lovely!

    I am looking forward to the organizing post I think - organizing your sewing and craft stuff. lol! Of course you would be the one to be so organized! Enjoy your break.

    Gloria said...

    Looks like you are all set for next year. Hope your Christmas was great! I wasn't sure what you meant by a "subscribe" thingy. Don't you have a reading list on your blog? That's all I use to see if someone has posted, plus it shows up in the front of my blog. I don't understand??? Oh well, you have a great week. Take care.

    Jill said...

    Looks like some great posts coming up! Have a great week!
    blessings,
    Jill

    Dear Donna,
    A new serger...how wonderful! That is something I would love to have one day...what a handy machine to have. I love your new look...and look forward to all your upcoming posts! Girl, you are way too busy! It makes me tired just reading all the things you're doing! Seriously though, I just love reading about your projects.

    Have a very blessed day,
    Laura

    What a fabulous line up Donna! I hope you are going to say that Sweet & Low is bad, bad, bad. That's what my mom tells me anyway. Love your new header by the way, it looks great. And the way you are showing your photos, looks so soft and inviting.
    Happy new Year!

    Donna said...

    Ha!Ha! Maria..yes..I am..but you let the cat out of the bag. The shocking thing is what the side effects actually were... All I was worried about was cancer. I had no idea that all the unexplained problems I was having were due to Sweet-n-low or why. Now I do. I've been off it a year. I should have posted this a long time ago!

    Glad you like the photos. :o)

    The Clip Cafe said...

    What is your sons photo blog? Would love to visit it :-)

    Caroline said...

    huh, yes, of course you can link. I don't think it is that fabulous (she says, as she sits here with messy hair and an outfit she will NOT be blogging about :)) but sure! Good for your daughter. From what I've seen on your blog, you look just fine! I don't ever want "looking nice" to become an obsession for me (with my personality this is a distinct possibility) ... just what I've been thinking about....

    Happy new year!! January is a little bit slower for us. We should pick a date to get together.

    Donna said...

    That would be just awesome Caroline! Funny...I'm going to be in College Station on January 6th for a square dance with Tim and the kids. One of these days, we should just come a couple of hours early and drop. :O)

    Welcome to Comin' Home! If you lived nearby, I'd invite you over to my neck of the woods for a nice long chat and a cup of tea out on the deck. But since we can't do that, I hope you'll stay and look around. I love learning new things and sharing what I learn with friends. Comin' Home is where I share tips from my many projects. Let's have some fun together! XO Donna
