Christmas is Coming to Clear Day Farm

Slowly but surely, it is starting to look as though we are in the Christmas season here at Clear Day Farm.  We finally brought the decorations up from the other place.  Took two trips in my car.  When did I acquire so much stuff??  Seems to be the story of my life…

As I type, the Fisher Price Nativity is being set up in the hallway by Hannah….that might get tricky.  There are half empty boxes of decorations scattered throughout the house.  Some things are done, some half done and we haven’t gotten a tree yet.  There are tiny bits of yarn all over the floor from our bottle brush tree making. Those fluffy bits just scatter in the wind, with the help of sock feet, of course.

Hopefully later on today things will look a bit better.  My friend, Catherine, is coming to help me do some decorating outside.  I need to pick up a few supplies for that.  Plus, she’s been hinting that my Christmas gift from her might help in that department and I’m getting it today!! Wahooo!!  Early presents with the added bonus of hanging out with my bestie and getting stuff done!

I’ve found my Christmas Thrift Store Challenge item.  I went to Forbes New to You, I’m always guaranteed to find something wonderful there! Here’s a sneak peek of the ‘Before’…. I love Nativity sets!  So, this will be a great project!

I have all these other projects I’m working on in the studio, but because they are gifts, I can’t say anything!!!  But they are fun projects that I’ve been hired to do!  I was working last night thinking how awesomely cool it is to be able to take on projects like this!  I love to make and create, that’s no secret, but to be hired to do it is….well…perfect!

I realized that I still haven’t posted all the pictures of the goodies I have for sale on the Farm Fresh Facebook Page.  I best get on that!  I may or may not of realized there was a whole collections of bracelets I made that never even made it to the Olde Foundry Market…..they are somewhere in the studio….

Hannah discovered her favourite thing again yesterday. The Santa hat….she sleeps in it, wears it everywhere….even though it is too big for her sweet little head.  But, look at this face…..how could you say no?

I’m off to continue on with my day.  Progress will be made!!  My To-Do list will hopefully be shorter by the end of this day and this house will feel a little more festive.  I’ll be sure to share the progress!!  If you want to see what I’m up to, feel free to follow me on Instagram!

To be continued,
