What's up guys? I hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving. I know its been a while sense my last post, I took some time off to focus on school work. Out of sight but not out of mind. I have also been getting ready for December on the website. If you know me or have been following the blog for a while you will know that Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. Each year I do a bunch of winter and holiday related things all over the website.
One of my favorite things to do is a themed 12 Days of Christmas countdown. This years theme is Fudgemas. Starting on December 12th and going threw December 24th I will be posting fun and delicious Christmas fudge recipes in the backing section, because lets face it its not Christmas time with out the fudge. I will also have some fun holiday and winter time related Paris In My Pocket pictures along with some other fun new photography series I am working on. I have a ton of plans for the page this year that I hope you will love.
As always if there is any ideas of things you want to see or ideas you think I should try out on here let me know. Who know it might just make it onto the page. I have been thinking of redoing the layout of the site and possibly vlogging again. I also have a couple short stories I've been wanting to post (one may or may not be Connor and Morgan related. You will have to check back to see.) I hope you all have a great week, and I promise new things will start popping up very soon.

If you followed my blog last Christmas you may remember my 25 days of Christmas. I have looked everywhere for an Advent Calendar for this years Christmas Countdown. I wanted one that you all could participate in like last year. But unfortunately I couldn't find any as fun. Any that weren't candy cookie or chocolate related. Or one that didn't repeat itself numerous time threw out the countdown. So unfortunately the only Christmas countdown I will have this year will be my tiny reindeer countdown. I feel like all I have been doing lately is bring you bad news. First no Quote Of The Weeks and now this. I promise I will have some new things up soon. I will have a new short story up very soon. Also keep an eye out on the Dear Customers section as well as my Backing section.

Christmas Eve has arrived. Witch means that its the last day of my Glass Ornament Christmas Advent Calendar. I'm really happy that you all enjoyed the calender. I was a little iffy about it at first. I thought it would end up being like most Christmas Advent Calendars. Fun at first but you lose interest by week 4. Thankfully this wasn't like that. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who followed along. And to everyone who participated. Whether you made a guess and got a mention in a blog. Or you sent me a message on Facebook or a text saying you guessed right that day. You guys are part of what made it fun. All though we did have an ornament casualty. The car got broke yesterday. 1/24 isn't bad. I am hoping that next year I can find another fun advent calendar. Maybe I will do the Yankee Candle Calendar. Who knows? I might even be able to find another Glass Ornament one. *Keep an eye out today for pictures of the ornaments on my tree* As for now, Its time to see what was behind door number 24.
Happy Christmas Eve everyone. I hope today goes smoothly and stress free. If you are going anywhere today. Drive safe and have fun.

2 More days until Christmas. And we are down the wire. I have the day off and I'm using every part of it. This afternoon my friend Casie and I are going over to the daycare we used to work at. We are going to visit the kids and pass out little Christmas goodies. Witch should be really fun. I also have to finish wrapping the presents that I have been putting off doing. And I'm also starting my Christmas Cupcakes today. *I will be taking pictures of that and posting it all later.* We are down to our last 2 Glass Ornaments in the Christmas Advent Calender. It's down to the last Santa ornament and the last Christmas Tree. Yesterday I guessed that it would be the last Santa. Shelly has a theory. She thinks that sense tomorrow is Christmas Eve that the last Santa will be behind door number 24. Maker her on Team Christmas Tree. Tina is also on Team Christmas Tree. Sara on the other hand is siding with me and thinks that today will be the last Santa. So it looks like its come down to this. Its Team Santa V.S Team Tree in the final's of Glass Ornament Advent Calendar. Who's ready to find out who the winner of today's little battle is? Lets open up door number 23 and find out.
Look like its a win for Team Santa. Sense we already know what tomorrow will be I won't be posting my guess. But I will be posting tomorrow. So you should still stop by and check it out. Hope everyone has a stress free day. And I will be back on later to post about my cupcakes.

Do you ever have one of those days where you wake up and think "Today is going to be a long day!" Today is that day for me. I hope it just flies by. But then again its 3 days before Christmas and I'm a cashier haha. I still have a few more things to wrap tonight and then tomorrow I'm starting my Christmas Cupcakes. After that I will be 100% ready for Thursday. How about you guys? Are any of you ready for Christmas yet? Yesterday I forgot to post my guess at the end of the blog. I was in such a hurry that I didn't do it. So I'm announcing now I'm joining team car. Shelly is staying on Team Car. Tina didn't make her guess. And Sara has jumped ship and guessed the last Santa.
I love these little Ornaments they are so cute. Tomorrow I'm guessing the last Santa. There is that and the last tree left.
I got most of my presents wrapped last night. And all my Christmas Shopping is done. I feel like I can breathe now haha. Hope everyone else's Holiday Season is going stress free. Yesterday I guessed today Glass Ornament would be The Present. And it looks like everyone else is on Team Car. Lets open up Door Number 21 and see if any of us have guessed it right.
5 more days until Christmas and I'm hopefully going to finish my shopping today. I have just been so busy lately with work that I haven't had time to do most of what I need to. So today is the day that I'm going to buckle down and do it. Here's hoping it's not too crazy out there. Yesterday I guessed today's Glass Ornament will the Present. Shelly and Sara are still on Team Car. And Tina is certain it will be the last Teddy Bear. Lets See whats behind door number 20 and find out if any of us are right.
Its a Teddy Bear and a Present! haha but I wont steal Tina's thunder on this one. I'm going to stay on Team Present for one more day and if it's not tomorrow I'm jumping off.
I am so sleepy! It's one of those days where you feel like you just cant wake up properly. And my cat wont stop staring at me. I don't know why hes had love and attention and hes had milk and caned food. According the my reindeer Christmas count down we now have 6 days to go until Christmas. Witch means there is only 13 days left until my 29th birthday. I honestly do not feel like I should be turning 29. It's so surreal to me. I know its not old but it's still a big number. It's the last year of my 20's I feel like my 20's went by so fast. And I didn't do nearly as much as I wanted to. So I'm hoping to make the very best of year 29. Anyways enough age talk lets get on with the 25 days of Christmas shall we? Yesterday I randomly guessed the bird house. Cause honestly I'm running out of actual ideas *sense there's only 5 ornaments left anyway. The calendar stops on Christmas Eve* And no one had said bird house in a while haha. Shelly guessed that it would be a Car. Tina says it will be the other Teddy Bear. And Sara has joined Team Car. Lets look and see whats hiding behind door number 19!
Tomorrow I'm guessing it will be the present.
We have hit the one more week mark. And as of last night I got someone's present in the mail *cough Shelly cough* I still haven't wrapped anything. But I have decorated 2 trees. So it hasn't been a complete Christmas time bust haha. Yesterday I guessed today would be a Christmas Tree. Shelly guessed that it would be a car. Tina forgot to post her guess but I'm thinking shes still on Team Reindeer. And as for Sara she is guessing Santa. Now lets open door number 18!
Tomorrow I'm guessing it will be The Bird House.
