What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

So Much Bustle

Corynn made herself an Ugly Sweater from a Salvation Army sweater for a Teenage Girl Party.  She was crazy excited...clearly.

The first photo in this post gives the impression that in this house all is calm, all is peaceful and serene and all we have time for is reading books by the flicker of treelight.

And let me tell you something, that is a MAJOR false impression. 

This house is a full blown bustling Elfin workshop.  I've been staying up until wee early hours each morning this past week (mostly around 1am I go to bed but one night found me slipping into bed at 2:30am) trying to do top secret projects.   This is partly due to top secret projects and mostly to do with the fact that Matt has been in New Mexico all week for work- and I just can't sleep without him spooning with me.  (It's a fact.)

I've gotten a few things done but I've also done a fair share of movie watching and ice cream eating- so anything I haven't finished is my own stinkin' fault.

Thankfully, Christmas isn't over in this house until all 12 Days of Christmas are over so I have a teensy bit of time left.  On the other hand- those days should already be pretty filled with extended family gift-making, since both extended family get-togethers are next weekend. 

So- yeah- Bustling.

( I'd show you some glimpses of the making but the fact is, I now have children who read my blog.  How inconvenient. )

One of these days I'm not going to procrastinate until the very end.  (Says Myself every single year.)

If anyone else is busy bustling these last few days- may your bustle be rounded out with merriment. 

And may you finish every project in the nick of time.  ;-)

Eek! How lovely! I have some little buntings to make for Amos' siblings family's and we are painting little wooden people like the characters in Charlotte's Web for nieces and nephew to go with the audio book. We still have some Christmas letters to finish and I have an embroidery that I've been working on for my BIL for i'm not even going to tell you how long that was SUPPOSE to be a wedding gift which I'd love to get done. But it might not happen. We don't do nearly as much homemade right now as you, but it's fun, like you said when you plan ahead. (which I don't either! Ha.) You are a NIGHT OWL. I'm a morning person. Turn into a pumpkin at 4:OO in the afternoon. Everything important better be done before that! :P Lots of love to you and we ADORE Corynn's sweater! :D Amy Merry Christmas!

Your soaps and wood burning projects are stunning! How I would love to receive such a gift. You are such a talent! And your rolls look yummy. Have a blessed Christmas!

Oh, yes, still so much to do! I have a constant chant in my head of all the things I need to do--constantly reordering and prioritizing. :)

Merry Christmas!
