12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Winner!

Hello everyone!

Just a quick post to say……..

Congratulations to Mara Atienza my winner of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

Here in Central Florida we’re finally getting some cooler weather, making it feel a little more like Christmas! And proof of how cold it is was captured last night when my son’s cat Shea finally decided that the cat bed wasn’t so bad after all. Especially when it comes with a front row seat of the fireplace!

And while Shea was snoozing away, I made cookies 🙂

Forgotten Cookies1

You can find the recipe here. Beware they are yummy and VERY sweet!

Merry Christmas every one!

Mental block = no title name *shrugs shoulders and posts anyway*

Hello all 🙂

I’ve been neglecting my blog as of late…gasp! I can’t even claim it to be writers block – more like a mental block.  I had no words of wisdom to share, no funny stories to relate. I did however go camping again 🙂 It’s getting to be that time of year where you can actually enjoy being outside and not feel like your breathing soup. Florida and all its wonderfulness (heavy sarcasm there) is miserable in the summer. You can take the girl out of New England – but you can’t take the New England out of the girl.  At least they get some sort of reprieve, we get like 2 months if we’re lucky.  So here I am enjoying the weather and an Angry Orchard cider…mmmmm

Yes, I really am part Irish – and no, I don’t usually drink with my eyes closed 🙂

I started using my cousin Lovena’s pictures with my posts. She captures the season changes and things around us that, without stopping to look, we miss. She shares them on Facebook on a group that she created called Just Looking Around. I’ve asked for her permission to use some of her photos in my own creations for Fae Tis Moor and she said yes! Awesomeness!

I plan on using this one on one of my next creations.

There getting all geared up for Winter up north and we’re watching the news for Hurricane updates. Remind me again why I stay in Florida?!?!

Yeah, so anyways……it’s been a busy week or so. My kitchen table has looked like a craft store exploded on it. Tomorrow will be the final day to finish up everything we’re taking with us for the Fall Festival at Celebration. Candace will be setting up a corner just for her book Born in Flames and book swag 🙂 Can’t wait to see what the day brings for us!

We even have fancy new business cards and a banner for our booth – we’re getting all high-class and ish 🙂 Truthfully, we’re trying to make ourselves look like the real business we are. It’s not easy starting out – let alone getting a name like Fae Tis Moor out there. Most times we find people staring at the name and sounding it out. Usually one of us steps in and breaks it down for them Fae Tis Moor – Fate is more, a play on words that trips people up…..a lot!  Oops, that’s what you get when you put two creative minds together and said creative minds want something that sticks out and says “hey look how creative we are!” Wow that was a mouthful.

So that’s how Candace, me and our hubbies are going to be spending our weekend.

How about you? Any big plans?
