Last weekend we went to Sonoma and cut down a tree on top of Moon Mountain, did a little wine tasting at Imagery and lunched just off the square at Hopmonk Tavern. I recommend all three. To me, it is quite simply, the most wonderful time of the year. Yeah I'm that girl.
I have a stack of projects I'm working on right now. First off the Advent Calendar. I found one at Terrain that I really loved, but at $68 (and needing two) I decided to DIY and make them a little more subtle. Using mill cloth sacks, striped baker's twine and a number stamp set from Paper Source. I stamped the sacks (put a piece of paper inside to prevent the ink from bleeding), and stuffed them with small toys and candy. I told the kids that elves came today while we were out and left little presents to open each day in December. Yippee!
