Hi friends. Umm, wow. We are in the throes of merry-making around here. The girls and I made these little votive candles the other day from air-dry clay. Just your basic pinch pot, with some of the greens pressed in the sides to make an impression. They’ve been the perfect little thing lining my kitchen table. And could not have been easier.
But honestly, what I really need is another good week before Christmas. Though my kids would protest, I never seem to be able to fit in all the things I want to do in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
But what’s really slowing things down is a huge project going on behind the scenes. It is taking all of my mental energy, decision-making abilities and honestly, my time. It’s exciting for everyone but still…phew! There’s not much extra room in my brain these days.
I hate it when people drop little hints like that around and don’t spill the beans, but I promise I’ll let you know very soon. In fact, it will probably be my first post of the new year. I can’t wait to tell you guys.
I’m taking a little holiday vacation (looking at Cayman Islands resorts and the like as of now) from my work with BabyCenter this week and I’m hoping to be here a few more times before the holiday. I miss this space and miss all of you!
More soon, friends.

I think I know what it is…and I’ll be spilling my own beans soon, too. Merry Christmas, Molly!
You and Erin with the hush hush! :)Your clay votives are so cheery, which reminds me I have some air-dry clay sitting around…
We miss you too! Merry Christmas and can’t wait to hear your big news.
