Merry Christmas to me!

I found a gift certficate for Chapters that I had totally forgot about. How did that happen???

Anyways, I finally bought myself a copy of Last Minute Patchwork Quilted Gifts.



I had a couple of dollars left after I bought the book so I grabbed a magazine that I had not heard of before, Crafts Beautiful.



Wow! I love this magazine, it certainly lives up to it's name!

I LOVE this Christmas ornament:



And this card:



We are expecting a major winter storm this weekend including up to a foot of snow! This is very inconvenient timing for me as this was the weekend I had hoped to get the bulk of my Christmas shopping done. I have to say though, a weekend spent in front of a roaring fire drinking hot chocolate is not exactly making me sad.

Merry Christmas to you for finding a little magical gift for yourself! Feet up with hot cocoa sounds good. Or did you say your feet were up? :) They should be.

I'm in love with all of those things! I especially love the pink in the ornament and card.

That magazine looks great too. Published in the UK--that's probably why I'll never see one. Have fun with your reading!
