I haven't blogged for a very long time, life just got busy and with a lot of changes.
I have battled a lot of health issues and this year is no different. I talked about having suspected heart issues 5 years ago, well now I have developed an issue I didn't even know about. It is called a left bundle branch block in my heart and I don't understand it much, only that is is electrical within the heart. Undergoing more testing in the new year to see what might have caused it, but until then there is only one way to go and that is forward. I have lost my passion for taking pictures, but I am so hoping I will get it back and maybe I will check in on my blog from time to time. Wishing everyone a glorious holiday season. Enjoy your family and friends, and don't forget to tell the people in your life how much you love and appreciate them, for someday they may not be there anymore.

I can't believe we have been in our place a whole year. Last year we moved in December. This year I have my tree up already November 19th. I know it may be early but I want to enjoy the season and all of the ornaments that lay in a closet for a whole year, why not get them out and enjoy them. So here is my tree this year. I am using deco mesh for the first time. I watched someone decorate one at our local craft store "Wheaton's" and thought she made it look easy and wanted to give it a try. So here goes:

Our little road trip to Peggy Cove. Anyone who lives in Nova Scotia knows of this place and many visitors come here every year just to visit. It is a beautiful must see place. It is a small community located on the Eastern Shore of St. Margarets Bay. In the Nova Scotia Halifax Regional Municipality, which is famous for the Peggys Point lighthouse Est. 1868. The story is that a little girl survived a ship wreck and was adopted and raised there and which the Cove was later named Peggys Cove :)
|It is such a magical place to visit.|
|Probably one of the most famous lighthouses in Nova Scotia.|
|Sitting on all rocks.|
|Overlooking the St. Margarets Bay.|
|You don't get to close to the water, people have been know to get taken away by sudden waves.|
|They have to have security there in storms, people love to storm watch the waves, but it is too dangerous.|

I tried my hand at making Glass Jar gifts for Christmas, and they actually turned out to be quite easy to make. I bought the glass jars at our local Home Depot. I happen to have the lights at home. At least have 20 lights on the set. then put any ribbon on you like. I chose to use burlap, which I purchased at our local farm market (Hennigars), also I got the things to glue on top of the burlap and Hennigars also. Gift in total cost, around $20. Not bad I say, so here goes:
First you start with the glass jar. Insert your lights in the hole provided.
This is what I picked out to put on this one. I don't over complicate things.
I could only find this burlap at our farmers market. They had some at Michaels but not the size I wanted.
So I cut enough to go all away around, then hot glued it together.
Cut enough to go the other way, glue that. Which is the fun part.
I didn't wait around, I moved on to the next step.
Glued on the star.
I put a lot of glue on it to make sure it would hold.
Then lite her up. I would say she will like it. I did, so I made two more so all the girls in the family will have one. Did you make any homemade gifts for Christmas gifts?
