a long debriefing (and a giveaway) . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

So it's that time of year when you *blink* and two (or more) days weeks have passed.  LOL!  Can I get an amen on that?!  I always struggle, when I finally make my way back to the ol' blog (which I always do), with what to post. Do I go back and fill in the blanks?  Or just pick up at 'today' and pretend nothing happened?

Because I use my blog primarily for me ... as a means to remember events, projects, and life, over the course of the year ... my tendency is to go ahead and fill in the ...

Once Upon an Ornament from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Everyone loves a fairy tale. Most of us can probably name a favorite or two, which elicit memories from our childhood. These timeless tales have entertained and taught lessons to generations, and many have similar versions in cultures around the world. I (Teri) loved them as a child, read them to my children, taught them in my 4th and 5th grade classrooms, and now share them with my grandchildren. Our mutual love of these stories is one of the things that brought Kara and me together as designers, when we created our Fairy Tale Album. This set of Fairy Tale ...

six more days . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I found a new and totally fitting way to help celebrate the season of Advent this year, compliments of Jo, over at Serendipitous Stitching!  She hosts a very sweet stitcher's Advent, and today is my day to share!

The idea is to share a hand-stitched ornament.  So of course, I'm sharing two.  LOL!  One is one I've had for years and years ... and it's more of a decoration than an ornament.  This beautiful wreath:
It's a canvas and yarn piece that was done by my Pop.  He was a terrific crafter and loved to work ...

Not Your Typical Free Ornament Pattern! from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

It's that time of year when we start unpacking the Christmas decorations and pull out all our favorite ornaments to decorate the tree. I (Kara) know that our family has some special favorites, and most of our ornaments have come to us from loved ones. Many times, those beloved ornaments have had a theme that is unique to the person who received it. The ornament below came about because I wanted to make that type of personal ornament for a friend.

While I love pizza, we have a friend who has never met a pizza he didn't like ...

snowflakes and snowmen . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Last week we had snow overnight . . . this week we had tornadoes.  Weather in North Alabama is always a bit crazy.  We were very lucky and didn't experience any storm damage, and we were able to ride out the warning in the storm shelter under the new cabin in the campground.  It's the first time we've needed to put it to the test since it was build this past spring.  And the first time in the ten years we've lived at the camp that we haven't had to leave the premises to find shelter!  Phew!

I ...
