Wow! so Christmas came and went! Whew is anyone else worn out? Fun stuff though. Here is one of the necklace and earring sets I made for a gift. I love chunky jewelry. I believe the person I gave this to does also! Hope you had a very merry Christmas. Thanks for running over here to visit me today. Have a great night.

Oh! on the home front. Our offer WAS accepted on our 2nd choice house. We are THRILLED!
We really got a GREAT deal/steal on a wonderful house in a fantastic neighborhood and still in Mount Juliet and same school system my daughter is in now. There is a lot of work that needs to be done on it, that is one reason we got such a great deal but we are fired up and ready!
So life and God are definitely good!
One thing that makes it even sweeter is that our first choice house, we just found out, is not accepting any offers under X dollar amount so there is no way we would have been able to get this house. It also needs renovation and we just cannot justify spending X amount plus all of the extra for renovations. We are looking at the end of January before we close on our house now and the one we are buying. But we will be really busy in that time with appraisals, last minute fixes on the house we are selling and all of that jazz. I hope to have a minute or two of crafty time. Thanks for listening!
Cheers!

That's great news about your new house! Good luck with all the stuff that has to get done in between leaving your current home, moving into your new house, and making it your home. :>
