95 Days Until Christmas

It's time to put the Christmas countdown back up on the blog again. It seems there are only 95 days left until Christmas. Have you started you holiday crafting yet?

I've been working on some Christmas stockings. I can't seem to make just one of anything. I figure if I'm going to go through the process of making one, I may as well work assembly line style and make a bunch. These will being going into the shop.

I found a new way to display my items too. I was trying to take pictures out front one night and the wind was driving me crazy. Robbie suggested I try out back since the back of the neighbor's houses sit further back then ours and provides a little relief from the wind. It wasn't as windy but I needed something to hang the stockings from. Then I noticed the pitch back. Perfect. Even the grass look pretty decent right now.

I was thinking it would be fun to have a stocking give away. I would make a stocking and fill it with fun themed goodies. Then post it on my blog and give it away sometime in November. I was chatting with a few other bloggers and they thought it was a good idea and that it would be fun if a bunch of bloggers got together and we all gave away a stocking and goodies at the same time.  The stocking and goodies can either be handmade or store bought. Anyone interested in a multi-blog give away?
