Santa's Workshop? Not exactly...

 But it does look like the World's Messiest Elf has been hard at work around here... 

For the last couple of weeks I've been spending my days working on some handmade gifts, 
so messes are to be expected, I guess. 

Some of them are for little ones in the family, some are for the grown-ups... 
I wish I could show them to you now but I since I don't want to spoil the surprises 
I'll have to share pictures of them later. 

The Head Elf doesn't really care about all the mess, especially when it's nap time.

I'm taking some time off from the computer until after Christmas, 
but I'll be back sometime next week with my last post of the year, 
-Final Farm Fotos of 2012- 
which, by the way, will be taken with a brand-spanking-new camera! 
(Hubby's present to me, but I'm not supposed to know about it... *insert evil laugh here*)

I love my blog friends so much....
I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas spent with the ones you hold dear.

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: 
and the government shall be upon his shoulder: 
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, 
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."    Isaiah 9:6

  27. Hope you had a gloriously wonderful Christmas Paula! How exciting about the new camera! I bet all your loved ones adored their home-made gifts. I went the non-sewing route this time with apple butter, cherry topping, carrot cake conserve, gingerbread loaves and cowboy cookies! (and a few "little things" tucked in as well) year, I will give the sewing machine a good workout instead! :-) Can't wait to see what you made...and also see your "Year in a Post"! God bless!
