tree of life...




wow, how is it the 12th of january already? getting the kids back into the routine of school has been difficult. we even needed a day off yesterday! i guess we got use to being all together again and going back was hard. this weekend is a long one though, so that should be helpful. i am trying to get back into the swing of normal life myself. it ws nice to sort of take a break from heavy shop updates and orders this christmas. it is the first i have really been able to enjoy for a long time. i need to be better about filling my shop up early so i can always do that. i also got to make some of my presents this year, which i rarely have had time for in the past. i enjoyed making three of these tree of life embroidery pieces (i only got pictures of two, one was already mailed off). it was fun spending time making each one unique and i'm pleased how they came out. i would like to keep working on the idea in the future and see of i can improve on the design. i am in love with the symbolism of the shaker tree of life, and used that for my inspiration.

i will be back soon to share some photos of the beautiful mountain cabin we stayed in after chrsitmas as well!

I love it when the kids do not have school. You can just be slow in no rush and enjoy them:) This world is allways to busy.

I really liked the idea of limits. They are voluminous. But the contents of their super!
