Day 9 - Twelve Days of Christmas Celebration

Good morning friends!
It was absolutely gorgeous here yesterday...nearly 70 degrees...but alas, a cold front came though in the evening with wind and rain, and we are in for a change in the weather...such is life in Central New York.

Twenty-four years ago today, Mr. Whimzie and I became the parents of another wonderful son.   It's hard to believe that so many years have flown by in an instant!  Now, Drew is expecting his first child in just a couple weeks.  I always felt it was very special to have a baby at Christmas-time...and I am sure he and Maria will feel that too.   


This morning I am heading to the dentist early...a last minute appointment that they set up so I can get work done on a crown. There isn't a lot of time to prepare my post, and therefore I am going to leave you with a couple of great links for making prim Christmas trees.  I found these links while doing research for my craft tutorials.  Hope you won't mind me substituting them...I'll be back tomorrow with another tutorial or recipe - stay tuned!

The first is from Pamela over at Our Pioneer Homestead.  She recently posted a 10 minute Dollar Store tree!  So cute and absolutely prim!

The second tree tutorial is from Kara over at Creations by Kara.  You can use many different fabrics for her trees, and they are so simple and cute!
Have a blessed day!
