Sweet swap and newest creations

I hope you are all ready for Christmas---only two days left! My husband went out last night with the kids in tote. What a crazy man---two days from Christmas, shopping with two kids who love to pull things off the shelves, not to mention it's like 10 degrees here. And, he said he's going out again. Yes, I'd say he's a procrastinator. But, who am I to talk?

Are you asking why he was taking the kids with him? I went to a "sweet swap" last night with the ladies from my mommy and me aerobics group---you know the instructor, Christa, from motivating mommies. Anyways, we had to bring about 5 dozen of one kind of sweet (depending on the number of people swapping)---whatever you wanted to bring. You of course have a tasting throughout the night, then, before you go home, you get to make a beautiful tray of assorted cookies, fudge, and candies. Plus, it makes you look like an amazing baker---if you don't want to tell otherwise ;-) It was so much fun with good food, drinks, and fellowship with an amazing group of women. You should try one next year!

Anyways, I wanted to share with you my latest projects. I've been on a beading kick the past few days---and I've made a bunch of new bookmarks. I think they are really colorful and pretty. I have them here on my desk all hanging over a crystal glass and I just love looking at them---a bouquet of bookmarks. Maybe I'll end up keeping one---I've made one for myself several times over and of course, given it away. But, I can always make more, right?

And, here are a few bracelets and necklaces I've come up with for my Etsy shop. Now I just have to take the time to list them. My favorite new project that I made I can't share yet because it's a gift for my Aunt who reads my blog, so I'll have to share that one after Christmas.

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and I hope santa is good to you!
