There was a time when Christmastime was so exciting. I loved the planning, and shopping, and holiday parties. I loved sending and receiving Christmas cards and each year I would send more and more. But times have changed and I just see Christmas as a lot of tiring work. I don't care to do all that decorating if no one is going to visit and see it. I would pass on doing it, but hubby says we have to (we meaning me). I love the homemade cookies and candies but I have no one to share them with so I eat them all myself. Christmas Eve was a big deal when I was growing up. It was the one time all year when the entire family got together in one noisy, joyous event. But since my Mom passed away, I am no longer invited to the big event. It's just another night.
In an attempt to cheer myself up, I joined in on a Secret Santa with one of my Etsy teams. It's all still a big secret, but I think I can share what I have made. I don't think anyone from the team visits here, in fact there aren't many at all who visit here. So here is my very pastel, romantic coiled fabric bowl. I am really pleased with the way it turned out, I am tempted to keep it for myself. It is a tad smaller, but deeper than I usually make, but I am very happy with it.
