Christmas Spirit

   Halloween didn't feel like Halloween at all this year with all these snow storms in New York... and power loss for 4 days... It was so freezing in the house that all I wanted to do the whole day was sit next to the fire-place curled up in a warm blanket and read books (which happened to be Christmas stories)). 

   Schools were closed, work was cancelled... it was just enough family time for me to realize that Christmas is coming VERY soon! So I started working on a new project - Christmas blanket:   

When it's finished, I will post a picture of it on my Facebook page for all of you to see.

Even the appearance of my Etsy shop has changed due to PromoFrenzy Treasure Hunt Event this November!

   The idea of the Treasure Hunt is to go through all listings in the shop in order to find the treasured item - one listing that contains special Treasure Hunt image. In the description of that listing you will find out how to get 25% off of all orders in my shop (HINT the special listing is located on the 1 page of my shop).
   There's a lot of different shops participating in this awesome event, and they all have different specials going on. Just make sure you read the shop announcement of each shop you are looking at (it's right below the shop banner as shown on the picture above) to see what they are offering. But the idea is still the same -

  1. mmm…nothing better than sitting by a cozy fireplace on a cold winter day! Love how your Christmas blanket is turning out too!

  2. I just moved to a new home that has a fireplace! We don't have it up and running, but when we do we are going to be spending days like yours in front of a cozy fire too. :)

  3. I miss my wood fireplace! We moved and now I have a gas log fireplace. Just not the same.

  4. i'm with you it just didn't feel like the normal fall halloween change of season..of course moving isn't helping either.

    thanks for the link of my shop. stay warm

  5. Oh no, so sorry you lost power for 4 day!!! Thank the lord for your fireplace though! Good luck with sales this month. :)

  6. Glad you have the power back. Stay safe, warm and more productive when it's snowing.

  7. I'll be in New york for the Holidays, I hope we have good weather then!Good Luck with the Treasure hunt.

  8. I live in NY (LI) too and luckily we only got rain and no power outages. Had enough of that when Irene hit in August. Wishing everyone lots of sales in the treasure hunt!

  9. I'm not looking forward to the winter storms!

  10. So glad that snow hasn't hit the Buffalo, NY area! Thanks for listing my shop - hope the weather calms down there!

  11. There's nothing better than a warm fire in the cold. I can't wait to see what that blanket looks like when it is done. Thanks for the promo for the team event; go team go.

  12. Great post... that fire looks wonderful!

  13. The best part of winter is snuggling by the fireplace! Love the beginning of your blanket!
