Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you. The highest courage is to dare to be yourself in the face of adversity. Choosing right over wrong, ethic over convenience, and truth over popularity ... these are choices that measure your life. Travel the path of integrity without looking back, for there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.

Merry Christmas!!!

Hi everyone!! I wanted to hop on & share a few things with you!? I am trying to get my Xmas completed, lol, almost finished. Christmas is at my house, so yikes! LOL! It will be great actually! I have about 15 bows lefdt of the 92 I had to make these apst few weeks! I have been burning a little (alot) of midnight oil as the kids have had several activities this week. But, I am on the home stretch so yeah!!!
The most important factor the past week has been snow!!!!!!! It has snowed EVERY DAY for the past week, dumping 3 FEET in 1 night! What does 3 ft. in one light look like? is the pic out of my back door, the patio is sunken with steps to the house, and the umbrella is on the patio, so can you believe the snow almost reaches the umbrella, lol!

It has not stopped snowing since. The next 7 days has a snow forecast too, so yeeks! I have pretty much been home bound. Thank goodness for snowblowers, but the plows just can't keep up. I am planning to grab a few last minute gifts for some of Hal's associates today and the prime rib & goodies for xmas dinner. But, the bulk of the baking will have to be for new years, I will get these bows finished by xmas if it kills me, lol, so I can relax the rest of the time.

We are taking the kids to Disney in January as part of their xmas present, so I will take a few days off after xmas & then look for some yummy Valentine's pretties to be listed before we leave! :0)

As an added bonus, one of my sweet customers, sent me pics of her Evie Lou Who strutting her stuff in her KGD's! I LOVE her isn't she precious! I just had to share!

Ok, I am off to work for a few minutes before I run to the grocery store IN THE SNOW, lol! Have a very Merry Christmas! I truly appreciate you all!

Love, Tab

Ok, so I need to work on my time management & check in here a little more frequently!!! I will put that in my list of New Year's Resolutions! :0) I hope everyone had a great Turkey Day! Ours was great! Of course we marathon shopped on Black Friday.

I have been working on a special made to match line which is only going to be available on an awesome new website! I have several sets to make & have been "bowing" every spare minute I have :0) I will keep you posted as to the details & where to get these exclusive bowsies! So...STAY TUNED!!! This is mostly why I have been MIA.

Drew started Upwards Basketball last week & is beyond excited! He is getting so big, I swear he is 2 feet taller than last years season *sniff*.

And as a tradition in our family 3 years ago, I was trying to figure out how I could keep my children from relentlessly bugging me to open gifts everyday until xmas, lol. My solution...Scavenger Hunt! Every Friday from Dec. 1 until Xmas, I hide a small inexpensive gift and give then 3 - 4 clues to find it. The 1st clue will lead them to the 2nd until they reach their gift! They LOVE this tradition & talk about it from about August on, lol! It is so fun to watch them figure out Mom's dorky riddles to reach their prize! They aren't worried about all the presents under the tree until xmas eve, lol, just wondering what their next scavenger hunt gift will be! Last night was the 1st Friday, they were so cute! I will try & remember to take pics of next weeks hunt~

Now, onto, I will be listing some M2MG & Valentine's Pretties soon, so stay posted!

I am going to edit a few pics, run to the grocery store, and then make some bowsies until my parents get here this evening. My daughters best friend is Annie in our City's Playhouse, so we are all going to go watch her tonight!!

Have a great weekend everyone! ~Tab :0)
