"Many people are having a hard time this Christmas and a relying on programs to help parents give their children gifts. Many programs like the Angel Tree. Angel Trees are usually found in major chain grocery stores and hold slips of paper with names of children who range from all ages. I adopted one several years ago and I was really happy to give back. This year James and I have decided to give back by adopting an angel tree. While although we have enough to sponsor a child, usually the child has a wish for a bigger ticket item like a gameboy or ipod. Unfortunately, James and I can't afford those items but would love to be able to give it. This is where I ask for your help.
Below is a giveaway filled with goodies for ONE winner. Inside the giveaway is an option to donate. No matter the amount you are automatically entered for more entries. The money from the donate will go 100% to help get the big ticket item for the child. I hope to not only raise enough for this child's big ticket item but also for another child too! Help me get there."

Every year around this time, while everyone is gearing up for Christmas, I'm just trying to make it past December 21st. That's the longest night and shortest day of the year. I need my daylight. I love the daylight. I need it to get through Winter. Cold and darkness are just too much.
I go a little crazy. Queen's I'm Going Slightly Mad starts running through my head on repeat. I become a bit of a homebody *mostly 'cause I'm such a cold wimp* and I start getting cabin fever. It's a paradox I know.
So while you're gearing up for Christmas. I'm gearing up for December 21st. Me and my vino are impatiently awaiting the light.

These pictures were taken a few days ago - obviously the snow is not on the ground - but I needed to post them and here's why. I organize my photos in such a way that the ones I haven't posted are always in the folder I'm working on and once I post them I put them in their separate file.
So as long as I don't post them they're always staring me in the face. And I gotta say I have had quite enough of staring at the sunshine and no snow in these photos. It's just a huge darn tease! So there. They're posted and now they're filed away and I don't have to look at them.
Just snow from here on in....le sigh.
Of course my Baby Girl decided to tell everyone what to do. She had the adults dressed up and reading stories to her.
I loved getting together with some of these ladies that I hadn't seen for a while, and meeting some wonderful new women. They're all such generous and open hearted women. Feels like I've known them all for years.
Sequins are only meant for the night, that rule is so antiquated I think. It's a perfect rule to break today.
I think the key to wearing sequins during the day is to keep everything around it laid back and casual - that means thicker textures and unstructured fits, like this chunky knit cardigan, and distressed jeans. The worn in jeans, the loose fit and the thick scarf all add an air of casualness to this, which works against the dressed up feeling of the top.
And who doesn't love a little sparkle in their day, am I right?
Next week - I'm mixing more prints. Come back then.
