’tis the season

to make up ridiculous rhymes like: matching dresses and kitchen messes. homemade gift tags and barf bags.

i had a few others in my head. earlier. when i sat down to write a blog post. and then realized that just because it is Christmas vacation, i am still required to cook my family dinner. so i had to get off this thing.

and then i had a sick little boy to tend to. he started throwing up after we got home from mass yesterday and continued to do so every time he ate a cracker. or drank a sip of water. which happened to be about every hour. hence my thoughts on barf bags.

the best laid plans always come to a halt when someone gets sick. and i. ever the pessimist. am waiting to see who the next victim of this messy stomach virus is going to be. is it terrible to hope it skips me? because i’ll happily hole myself up here at home. and sew. read. bake and snuggle for as many days as it takes for us to get over this. i just don’t want to be the one barfing. i prefer the handmade gift tags part….

the tree pattern taken roughly from here.

and last, but not least: to all a good nite.

  1. It’s just not so merry when you’re barfing, and that’s a fact. I hope it passes you over, all the more because you’re the mom and have to keep things going at home, which is more difficult to do when your head is over a toilet.

    I love your Christmas pillow and the “believe” material!

  2. Regan, I hope the ‘it’ stops with your youngest! When growing up, I once went out to the barn to clean stalls very early in the morning (I could hear my little brothers) … all to avoid getting sick. It worked, to my delight.

    Love the pillow & wish I had time to sew. My machine is covered by piles of laundry – at least it’s clean & folded.

  3. oh yuck. i hope it stops there!

    merry christmas!

  4. Oh no! I hope no one else gets sick, especially so close to Christmas. Sending prayers your way …

    *Love* your pretty gift tags!!!

  5. Praying you don’t get sick, especially on Christmas!!

    I love your photos, they are just beautiful!

  6. Sorry to hear a bug has come to your home. Not good timing. But….what can ya do? Just take care of him and I hope you stay well.

    Your pillow is perfect.

  7. Praying those of you who are sick, get well; those of you that are well stay well. Merry Christmas!! OH, love the pillow!

  8. That pillow is super cute!
    I hope no one else gets sick. Merry Christmas!!!
