There was so much art, tons of spaces all decked out to look like real miniature galleries. Some are very sparse and some are packed with all different kinds of mediums. You have to walk around for about 3 hours to really see everything...and this was only the first night!
This VW bus had a huge audience staring at it...very interesting...
After a couple of hours walking around, the people watching took over and I became fascinated by the pants. So many men had on fabulous pants..here are a few:

Yesterday and today, I finally finished decorating my tree..I am not kidding..and I had my Mom to help me. Here is what it looks like...
In the midst of all the hub bub, I found it necessary to scour eBay for more needlepoint ornaments even though I own over 30 brand new canvases ready to stitch. I think I have a problem...but aren't they cute? They are so inexpensive. This prompted me to put several of my canvases on eBay to sell. 2012 is going to be my year to sell things on eBay.
Will be back to blogging full steam ahead this week, trying to catch up and redeem some of my followers! xo

This new stone popped up recently..a dark silver colored, mirrored bead. I made this necklace and matching double strand bracelet. It is one of my favorite new treats.
The most popular...this amazing gold leaf long necklace. $50
loving this crab...
My Christmas tree is still completely bare. I can't even get the lights on-they are tangled and then I bought new ones and they weren't the right kind. I am needing some elves right about now. And..I had the great idea of having a holiday cocktail party at my apartment the week between Christmas and New Year's. Not sure how I am going to pull that one off. I have piles of magazines surrounding me, beads and crystals everywhere and the feeling that I have forgotten something really important but can't figure out what! I did get my holiday cards out..that was an accomplishment-and I am LOVING my card this year..will post a copy this week.

I have two big shows this week and all the year-end work for my real job. Yikes! Of course there is also Christmas shopping for myself. It always happens to me when I have a little extra cash from my holiday sales to shop for myself..that's right I am selfish. I don't think it is too out of the box..you are in the malls and online, of course you are going to see good stuff for yourself while you are shopping for others.

My Christmas list seems to dwindle each year, making it easier to get through it. Coming up with creative and recipient appropriate gifts is a little bit of a challenge. I know what I am getting for most of my list, so I hopefully won't be hitting the malls December 24th!
When my Mom and I were shopping in Jacksonville, I found this adorable display of striped long-sleeve t-shirts at Banana Republic. I fell in love with the navy/grey one and bought it this weekend. This is it and it comes in so many cute colors!
Me and my cutie pie Goddaughter Elizabeth..in my new shirt!
