The List

It’s been exactly a month since my last post.  In that time, I’ve worked…hard.  Work, work, work….makes Amy a narrow and creatively void soul.  Not really, but I did feel sorry for myself a little.  I had to travel for business in November and I returned Thanksgiving week with three days to ready our home for my husband’s family Christmas.  Yes, Christmas.  Twenty of my in-laws descended the Friday after Thanksgiving for what can only be described as two days of typical, quasi-dysfunctional mayhem.  It was nice.  I then careened back into work.  Today, I took a deep breath.  I poured a glass of wine, and for the first time in a month, I sat down at the computer and logged into my WordPress account.  My friends, it’s been too long.  I missed you.  I missed me.

But the reality is, I have bupkis for content.  Not a lot besides work, family, etc,  happening here.  I have managed to get a lot of my Christmas shopping done.  It was one of the priorities I had to slot in front of my time here.  While shopping, I have happened across some pretty neat stuff.  So in the absence of anything substantive, I present you with my official 2012 Christmas list.

1.  Denise Interchangeable Crochet Hooks….I chalk this one up to Jennifer Hansen’s Craftsy class.  I’ve coveted them for months now.

3.  A great general purpose lens for my Canon Rebel…maybe this one?

These are by Aga Designs.  I find I love everything she does-including her Craftsy class.

David YurmanDavid Yurman….a girl can dream, can’t she?  But really, who needs David Yurman.  Last year, my sweet baby girl helped her daddy pick out a pair of dangly gold and turquoise earrings at Target, and they are the bomb! Mama likey the earrings.

9.  Time

10.  Energy

There you have it! The first installment of my 2012 Christmas list. Hubbie asked for it weeks ago.  Better late than never! Have a great week my friends!
