Happy New Year's Eve



I know -- I've been absent for a while.  And I apologize for not letting my readers know that I would be absent.  Trouble is, I didn't know I was going to be absent.  I've been working so many hours, all I do at the end of the day is collapse.  And that's pretty boring.  Soooo.... actually, it's been a service.  Yeah, that's it!  A service!  I've done a service not posting about my boring life.
 So while I was working my tushie off, my darling daughter, along with her friend, made this lovely gingerbread house.  It's really sweet, isn't it?
Literally.  But I think it's pretty cool too.  I like the frosting curly-ques on the front.  And the marshmallow shingles are pretty wonderful.  But I think the hard candy awnings over the windows and the door take the cake.  Or make the cake.  Whatever....







have been in my studio -- I made this gown for her dollie to wear.  So just so you all know that I know how to dress up for the holidays, I'm posting this picture.


She's holding the tiny sparkly bag I made from plastic fabric




And wearing the tiny slippers also.

Happy New Year to all -- I'm wishing everyone a creative and prosperous new year.
