Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

The holidays are done and I finished it all. You knew I would though, didn't you?
After finishing up the shipping/working for the day, I finished the sewing of the Christmas stockings.We made sugar free sugar cookies and highly sugared but killer brownies. Then after bed for the girls I was able to finish the knitting of Girl Beast's sweater. What a big "phew" moment that was.
I cooked. I finished off the Brownies and made egg rolls for the Xmas Eve party. My sweet cousin came over and helped with the Egg rolls, which made them go so much faster. Then I made a pumpkin pie for Christmas dinner. In between the cooking I was able to sew buttons, weave ends, and graft underams of Girl Beast's sweater. Tada!
About 15 minutes before we left for Husbeast's parents, I realized that I had not made Girl Beast's Christmas Pj's. There were 2 pair cut out sitting on the sewing machine but neither had been finished. So I rushed down and litterally whipped up a set of Pj's. No one knew that they only took 15 minutes to make, in fact it shocked me that they were that fast. They are no frills and no buttons, but she liked them none-the-less.
After that I was able to breath a little. I wasn't working again for a bit and all the gifts were done. More cooking was ahead but that's the norm. Yesterday I lay around like a complete slob in my new robe. I lay around sketching out ideas and knitting.I finished Gram's 3rd pair of socks. The way she washes them, she should have enough to last her the week. Dad and I are now the only ones that don't have enough socks for a week. I'm working on Dad socks now. Since Dad works outside all day, he gets 2 pair then I'll work on some for me.
Really, it's nice to have all that hustle and bustle done for another year. The holidays are nice, I just wish they were a little more relaxing leading up to it. I hope you all had a good weekend and wonderful plans for the New year.
