As the season comes to a close

Hi everyone!  I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas season.  Ours has been busy and so wonderful, filled with family and friends.  Tonight we'll gather with a few close friends at our house to spend New Year's Eve quietly.  It's a tradition we all look forward to.  Some of you have asked to see pictures of our tree.  It's a very special part of Christmas to me and my family. It's filled with ornaments that I've made over the course of 41 years.  But, it also has memories of friends and travels.  Now my daughter has started the tradition of making her own gift tags that are beautiful little works of art.  I gather them all up after the packages are unwrapped and hang them on the tree.  They've become a memorable addition to the other decoration.  So, this will be a post with several photos but not much talk.  I'll be back tomorrow with the first of two tags for the finale of the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie style. 

Happy New Year's Eve!  See you tomorrow!
