Too Late for Christmas

Could I please ask for the time to stop
for a little while
just a few days or so...

oh - I´m so late for Christmas this year.
I didn´t manage to get our advents wreath
finished in time
and this has never ever happened for me before

you see - I thought I had plenty of time last week
and when friday arrived I still hadn´t done it and
I needed to finish a few things for the craft fair
starting on saturday
so I when in the studio instead thinking
I still had saturday evening to
make the wreath....

I went happily ahead for the craft fair saturday morning
Hubby was driving me, there were so much snow and we
had to drive really carefully all the way.
Arriving safely I just had to carry
my bags inside while Hubby parked the car -
watching my stepps in the depp snow bending
down to grab the bags
and got this nasty
pain the bag

so, spending time at a craft fair on pain killers
are NOT all that funny I tell ya`
Do I need to say, I didn´t get that wreath finished
when we got home saturday evening....

This can teach me to do my exercises right

Painkillers and craft fair on sunday again.
The fair went very well though
I did have a great time despite

The advents wreath?
I finished it today.
We´ll light the first candle this evening.

(still on pain killers
but doing a little bit better)


A big thank you to those of you who took
advantage of my Thanksgiving Blog Offer.

Wishing you all a wonderful day

Tina ♥♥♥

Hope your back is better soon. It will probably take a couple of days to be back to normal.

Your advent wreath is beautiful - so pretty.

Tina the wreath turn out lovely. I especially love what you do with lace and buttons. I have posted a link from my blog cause I used one of your ideas and then a link to your Etsy shop (not that I have that many followers.

Much love and a little luck for the holidays.

Hi Tina
Hope your back is not too painful. Don't carry heavy boxes! Give it time to heal.
Your advent wreath is beautiful, yes Christmas is nearly here and so much to do.

Hi Tina,
So sorry that you hurt your back. Back pain is awful, I know.
I love your wreath, it's just beautiful.
Take care of yourself.

Hello Tina:
Please slow down for just a day. Making the back pain worse will only hinder you later. Take time to stop and smell the roses, well during this season stop and smell the pine trees.
I love your Advent Wreath. Such pretty colors.

Oh Tina, Sweetie, I'm so sorry to hear about your back pain. Hopefully you feel much better soon and don't have to take pain pills anymore.
I'm happy that the fair went well for you besides that pain!

Oh, Tina! I hear you about the pain thing. Yesterday while shopping I thought my hips and thighs were going to give out. I wish I could help you find more time! Short of skipping a few hours of sleep....*sigh*
Put your feet up for just a bit, take a deep breath and sip a nice cup of hot tea. Maybe a little bit of peace for a couple of minutes? Hope you feel better soon!
Hugs and blessings!

Back problems are the worst! I've actually made some art on painkillers & it turned out kind of scary. While I was doing it I thought it was genus, LOL! Seriously, I love the advent wreath. Feel better soon! Lisa
