My Special Christmas Gift

Christmas is over. All the anticipation and waiting is past. Today I will take down all the decorations, and the trees we so carefully chose will go to the curb. That always seems so sad to me. They look so lonely out there, after being so beautifully garbed, standing as the focal points of our home for over a month.

Before moving on, I wanted to share a very special gift I received from my youngest daughter. She used some fabric I had stashed away, and embroidered my blog header, adding buttons to match the theme. 


I was so surprised and touched by her thoughtfulness and creativity. Isn't it cute? I plan to put it in a shadow box frame and display it proudly.

I call her my Chicken Little, and she will start sharing her thoughts and creativity on her own blog on January 1. I'll send you the link once she puts up her first post. I think you'll enjoy it!

I love it! Chicken Little is a thoughtful and creative young woman!

Yes, it is sad to me too when the tree comes down, but this year I am not in a hurry to take it down yet. I am taking it down a little bit at a time.

I got a new follower this morning...she had a blog laid out but no posts...and you were her only follower. Will this be your daughter's blog? Just very, very curious! I take no new followers for granted! =D
