Happy Hanukkah

Not too much else to say here. Things have been crazy busy. I had a three-day weekend chock full of sewing trying to prepare for two craft shows that I'll be in- one this weekend, and one next weekend. I'll post more info on that later this week for those who are local and want to come by. Today was the second snowstorm in three days and, although exciting, it seems to make life feel harder at first. In any case, I'm a bit worn out at the moment, but I did want to share this with you all.

This menorah is the one I made back in my daycare days at Morah Esther's. It's just a simple block of wood with some nuts glued on. And painted, although by now most of the paint has been scraped off along with over twenty years worth of wax. I received a "fancy" silver one for my Bat Mitzvah, but always loved this one more (I also always loved the stuffed felt one with velcro on "candles" that had my brother's and my name appliqu├ęd onto it-must get that from my parents). I guess I've always been a freak for the handmade. I hope you're all enjoying the first night of the festival of lights (whether you're celebrating or not).
