Happy December! I hope you all enjoyed Thanksgiving. I know I did, but I am very much looking forward to December 25. The Christmas season is my favorite time of year! I love the music (that I have been listening to since before Thanksgiving), the food, the family time, and the general atmosphere of peace surrounding the season. I think the feelings of peace and love and hope that we feel during this time of year comes from the fact that Christmas is the time that we celebrate God’s greatest gift to us- His Son. What other thought could bring us such hope?
Ahhh, even as I think about it now, I am content. I love December. If it were up to me, December would be twice as long so as to draw out this wonderful time of year as long as possible. I am currently picturing in my mind fuzzy socks, hot chocolate, colorful Christmas lights, snow, and evergreen trees. I really do love this time of year.
For those of you who are local, you will (probably) know that yesterday was the opening day of rifle in Pennsylvania. This means, I was alone for the weekend while my husband was at the cabin deer hunting with his uncles and cousins. As much as I love my husband, I do enjoy the time alone once in awhile. I had some time to do some crafts and such that I wouldn’t ordinarily take the time to do.
I have recently been Pinteresting some cute ideas for dog toys, decor, and accessories that I could learn to make for my pooches. I spent my weekend buying craft supplies and experimenting with a few holiday themed projects! Take a look!
Holiday Doggie Donut Toys:
Mia approves of her new toys. 🙂 They are cute, but I don’t recommend for heavy chewers.
Red and Silver Paracord Collar:
I was impressed that I ended up with a functional collar and toys on my first try. 🙂 I have a few other crafts I want to try in the next few weeks as I enjoy my December.
Merry Christmas! Take the time to enjoy the season!
