.....Holiday Ho Hums and Daydreams .....


Okay, I don't like to bring anyone down but right about this time every Christmas season...I start getting the blues...I have a lot to be thankful for and realize that every day. I think it's more about another year is almost at a close...Our family, while tight,is another year older and the kids are definitely out of that "Santa" phase...It's been a few years since Santa visited our house...and that's a little sad...I am very happy that we have raised very polite and well balanced children but as their mother...it's just so hard to gradually let go of them...Change is good but it's also bittersweet because it means that things never stay the same...

This is a little heavy so I'll just move onto something else...I am in the process of working on my Etsy shop and creating a new style for my dolls...I love the farmhouse look and the colonial look too...I'm trying to cross them in a pleasing way...I'll be listing my inventions on my website and picturetrail soon...If I could put an end to my daydreams and wandering thoughts...I'm always thinking of a dozen things at a time...I think I'll call it "brain clutter"! I would get so much more done...I think that will have to be one of the things I'll need to work on in this new year!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take Care,

Tina

Tina ~ Hope this evening has you feeling a little better. :-)
And I hope some day, not too far in the distance you experience the "Santa" phase again...maybe with grandchildren.
Love your photo.

Hello Tina. I just found your blog this morning. I am just getting ready to write on mine. I completely understand how you feel about Christmas. Every year I get the same way. My children are adults now, and Christmas has never felt the same for me since Santa doesn't bring toys anymore. Yes, I agree, I think it is a reminder that things change and time marches on. I only get that feeling with the onset of Christmas. Then it's gone. I am sure we are not alone.
