incredible find!

Found the best rabbit hole site ever! While it's more website than blog, I still had to post it as my blog o' the day. I guess my tag should be website of the day, rather than just blog shares. What a find! From the site:

"One Pretty Thing is a daily website dedicated to bringing you inspiring projects for a handmade life.

Weekday mornings One Pretty Thing will showcase a different holiday, seasonal or project-specific Roundup compiled with projects from across the internet.

Our evening post, The Daily DIY, is a compilation of the day’s DIY projects and inspiration from around the blogosphere. And on the weekends we’ll take a look at YOUR projects via our Flick community, friends of the site, contests, crafty inspiration and an additional Weekend Roundup!"

Doesn't that sound fun? You know where I'll be weekday mornings!

We got our tree up last night. It was good family time. Both kids were here and Ken was medicated. ;) He set up a video camera and the kids didn't know we were recording at first. They were in rare form, laughing and tormenting each other. The festivities even included the first stanza of "Who Put the Dick on the Snowman" brought to us by Ashley. We were laughing so hard even if we were a little worried she knows the whole song. To those of you with small children reading in shock, this is what those sweet Christmas memories morph into - your sweet little girl singing of the phallic state of snowmen. Merry Christmas!

To continue the holiday merriment, here's a photo share of an advent calendar my mom made quite a few years ago. My kids still fight over who is going to be first. They have it all figured out who does which day till we get to the star that goes on top of the "tree". Each numbered pocket has either a crochet ornament or a snowflake to hang above. I asked the kids last night if one of them wanted to take it home (This is our last Christmas with kids living with us). Before the words were even out of my mouth, Ashley jumped up with her hand in the air shouting, "ME!" :)


Thanks, mom. Merry, merry.

Aww thanks SO much for the shout-out. I'm SO glad that people are enjoying the blog because I am having the BEST time putting it together! Not to mention all the fabulous crafty bloggers I've met. That advent is fabulous. I would battle over it too. -)
