Winter Cheer

For those of you who celebrate something in the month of December...
Or maybe those of you who look forward to the turning of the year...

I send Winter Cheer!

We are laying low, as I have been down with  my familiar asthmatic bronchitis again.  
Only the second time this year!  Amazing.
Not to worry, I am quite comfortable in my abilities to move past this...
in its own time!

I recently completed two Christmas stockings, which are now residing in their new homes...
ready for a Christmas celebration.
They (of course) inspired some looking back at the many, many I've made since 1995. 
You can find related Stocking stories under the label "Christmas Stockings", as I've posted about them before.

This year however, I was sent the most beautiful treat.
The matriarch of long-time stocking family mentioned in those old posts 
sent me a photo of them all hanging on her mantle!

In all of these years, since I created the very first family set for my closest friend,
I have never seen any of the 131 stocking hanging in the Holiday Habitat!
I was floored to say the least!
She has created a lovely tradition that blooms every December at her home,
filling it with family, tradition and joy!

I am honored to be a part of it all!

Olivia's Mama gets a stocking!
 The above stocking went to the ever-expanding first family!

A new sibling arrives!
A pocket on the back, like his older brother has!
Below, the glorious photo, overflowing with holiday happiness!

Christmas Decor!
I have some new plans in the works for the new year,
but I'll save that for the next post!

May you find the season to be all you love and hold close,
