Happy New Year From Glo Sews!

Midnight is approaching and as I ready myself for a brand new year, I can't help but reflect on the year that is quickly coming to an end!  It has been a wonderful year here at Glo Sews.  I have learned so much over the past six months and made so many wonderful blogging friends!  Thanks to all of you that have made me so happy by your many comments and by reaching out to me in friendship!  I know that 2012 will be even better!

I have several favorite posts this year, I guess one of my very favorite would be the very first one that started it all off.  Sewing Again explained a lot about me and where I have been and where I hope to go!  Shirred Dresses covered a technique I yearned to try years ago but could never find the time.  Oh, how much fun that was, it was a long time dream just to try it and I really fell in love with the technique and the dresses I made!  Fit For A Princess was another fun project.  I made a princess dress from the left over tulle I used for decoration at…

I've Been Tagged

I have been tagged  by Camille at Crazy Mama's Blog.  I love her blog, it is always such a pleasure and joy to read.  It takes me back to when my five children were small and all the funny things that happen with small children, especially with children and a breast-feeding mom!  Thanks for thinking of me Camille, I hope I make you proud!  LOL

11 random things about me:

Hope your Christmas was Merry!

Christmas has come and gone, and a brand New Year is on the way.  Hope your Christmas was Merry and Bright!   I had a wonderful Christmas.  Nothing is better than spending such a special holiday with family!   I love this time of year and having my family near is such a huge part of it!

The Grands all seemed to love their gifts and enjoyed visiting with the cousins and aunts and uncles!  The adults seemed to love their gifts too!  I have to admit  I loved mine!  I have been without a DVD player forever, I have been watching movies on my small laptop, well thanks to my son and daughter-in-law to be, I can now watch them on my big TV.  How nice that is!
I also received a Kindle Fire! Wow, thanks kids! How great is that. I have been wanting one since Amazon announced the release date. I have a kindle, but it does not display in color, now I can get magazines and actually see them in color. What a huge difference that makes, plus angry birds is a huge favorite of mine, now I can see wh…

Home Crafted gifts

I had a lively discussion the other day with a close friend about home crafted gifts.  She seems to think that hand made gifts are something that are given when you have little money and can't  actually buy a gift.  I was shocked!   I have been making gifts for people I love for years and I certainly hope they didn't feel that way when I presented the gift to them!

The thought that hand made gifts are something that you do because you lack the finances to buy a gift is ridicules!   First of all you have to purchase the supplies and then donate your time and energy to finish the project.   I think when someone takes the time to make you a gift, whether it is needle work, sewing, or any other craft,  it is a huge compliment.   I know that person had me in mind when she planned the gift, and thought of me all during the process of making it.  I know she stressed over the fact that it might not turn out perfect, and may have had to correct mistakes and start again at least once. …

Meet Me On Monday

Hello and Happy December!   I am so excited about it being December!   I am working hard at sewing and getting a lot of Christmas things made and  I have not been free to post as often as I would like.   Hopefully that will change as of December 16th.   I will have seventeen days of Christmas Vacation starting that day!   I hope to have more time to post and read!

Have you put your tree up?   I have not, I usually have it up the day after Thanksgiving, but this year has just been too hectic!   I Hope to have it up before the Grands and my daughters come up for my "Birthday Weekend"! My birthday is December 19th and we get together on the nearest weekend and have a big ole slumber party and make Christmas decorations.   I love that weekend and look forward to it all year!    I Must have my tree up before then!
