Hey Everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! What was your favorite part of Christmas this year? Mine was having my sister and my new brother-in-law home for Christmas :) It was super fun! On Thursday Ruth, Nate, my mom and I took the train into Chicago. I saw this amazing shop with an amazing quantity of beautiful, old sewing machines lining the front of the window…oh how I wish the sewing machines were actually for sale. Ruth and Nate took a picture of me while I was gawking in front of the window. Haha, I’ll be sure to post those photos later.
Most of my time right now is going into my Scholastics project that’s due by the 14th. Last year I made a dress out of pennies. As you can imagine it didn’t work out too well due to the weight of the pennies, so I didn’t even enter it. Haha so this year I’m making something that’s much lighter! Haha
Above is an infinity scarf that I made the other day. It’s for sale in my etsy shop if anyone is interested. A really nice elderly lady from my church taught me how to crochet last year and I’ve been hooked (no pun intended) ever since! I’ve been crocheting like a crazy lady in my down time. I like to crochet in my free time, because it’s very relaxing and I don’t really have to think about anything while doing it. If any of you would like to learn I found a good tutorial on how to crochet :)
P.S. Happy New Year!! ...well almost - in about three hours from now.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!! I'm so excited that it's Christmas! All of my family is home and it's so nice! My sister's home so we're going to be doing a bunch of photo shoots and we're thinking of making a video too :) Photos and sewing projects are on their way! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas this year filled with fun and family.
P.S. Here's a video I made when I went to my friend’s house a couple of weeks ago for their traditional cookie baking weekend. I've been doing this with them for years! I look forward to it every year. Their family gets together and they make thousands of cookies in only a couple of days. Last year we made 8,141 cookies in less than four days. I'm not quite sure on the cookie count for this year, but I know that it's over 6,000. It's always just so much fun spending time with friends and getting to know their family even more every year. I almost feel like part of their family. I hope you enjoy the video :)
