Finding Joy

It's been really quiet here at My Watermelon Moon.  Just like you, I have been busy.  Busy shopping, wrapping, cooking, cleaning and all fo those other holiday chores (man, to be a kid again).  Tried to spend a little extra time with the kids, and my husband.  After almost losing my mother in law right before Christmas, it was time to regroup. Pay attention to my top priorities.  Time with my Mom and Dad, and my grandma...At first, I felt guilty.  But, then I realized, it's okay.  I'm NOT superwoman.  I can only do so much.  My wonderful bloggy friends are all busy too.  We will get to spend plenty of time together in 2013.  Blogging can totally wait.

In the mad rush to do my best to make the "perfect" holidays for my family, I managed to bust out one craft.  For my Mom.  Somehow I never make those I love things.  They never make it into their hands.  I will try to change that, one person at a time...  With my one craft ( unless you want to count two holiday dinners and an abundance of baking, those are "crafts too!) , I found a little joy...


I was so glad I did too, she loved it! Which made me so happy.


Placed on the kitchen island, in the center of all the hustle and bustle for all to see.

The letters are from SVGCuts.com (my favorite SVG peeps) and the establishments are from Silhouette and SVGCuts.  

Tomorrow is a special day for the kids.  I hope to get some crafty time over the 4 day holiday weekend ( so happy the ways the days fell this year!)

Oh, I also decided that when I feel like making Christmas cards in May or July ( whihc is when I am interested in holiday crafting oddly),  I am going to just do it from now on.  Otherwise?  Everyone gets Costco photo cards, and I can so do better than that, unless of course I wait till December, then not-so much.

So tell me, How did you find joy this holiday season?  And all year long?

  2. It has been crazy around my house too. We all need to take care of our families first. After the new year I'm sure we'll all make more time for our blogs and crafting.
