Giving gifties to myself!

I've had a rough go with my dental work and now, the resulting aftermath. The past three days have brought excruciating TMJ pain. OUCHERS! The dentist tells me I need to relax, take loads of ibuprofen and use warm compresses. I don't think I've had a relaxed day in my entire life. I'm not built that way. Ay yi yi. So I'm pampering myself with a little holiday shopping for moi. ;)

Yesterday I had fun buying some online holiday craft patterns!

I got darlin' Jenny, of Allsorts, adorable Christmas Elfies!

I got darlin' Betz White's adorable gingerbread boy and dog!

I got darlin' Alicia, of Posie Gets Cozy, adorable Walk in the Woods patterns!

I got darlin' Anna, of twelve22, winter-time paper village!
Anna has a free printable of one of her winter-time houses available here.

I got the prepublication, online version of Fa La La La Felt from Zinnio, featuring so many designers work that I love! Be ready to fall in love - they let you preview quite a few pages of this wonderful book, so be sure and check it out.

And I also recently got Laurraine, of Patchwork Pottery, Bird pattern, her Pumpkin Coasters pattern and Quilters Connection Magazine (which Laurraine sweetly autographed) featuring her Partridge in a Pear Tree!

Another great pattern set I got recently, Crafty Tree Trimmings, which features six well known bloggers adorable patterns, from Crafty Pod! 15 % of purchase will benefit Project Linus!

I've mentioned the first three delightful ornament sets I received from Stephanie before and I want to add that I went back for three more sets teehee! Could not resist! ... I got six sets of the most adorable ornaments from dear Stephanie of Old World Primitives at her Etsy Store! I'm linking to Stephanie's main Etsy Store addy for you to see all of her wonderful things. I bought her doggies, kitties, angels, snowmen and two different Santa sets, all charming!

I'm off to enjoy my holiday patterns and magazines and hopefully, relax and UNCLENCH, and happily dream of sugarplums! :)


  1. Just popped in to say Hi. Boy, do I have a lot of link to go to now....

    I know all about TMJ... Hope it gets better. Do you wear a night gaurd. That helps me.

  2. You and I are built the same way, ay yi yi! I love when you say that! TMJ has cracked my molars more than once. Unclench they say! Hah! Thank you so much for all the pattern information especially all of the cute reindeer! What fun, oh for us! So sorry, keep medicated. I hope you feel better soon! Elizabeth

  3. I don't know how to relax, either. And I think buying yourself some gifties is the perfect solution to dental work! We stressed-out-anxious types need to have a Convention. Can you imagine? hahahah! They would have to serve decaf with breakfast! hee hee! xox Pam

  4. A little retail therapy can only make you feel better. Enjoy and relax!

  5. Wow, great choices! I love felt ornaments and Posie's are very cute!

  6. Hi Sally! Just stopping by to say hi because I haven't 'seen' you in a few days. Hope all is well, and you are having holiday fun - xox Pam

  7. Oh Sally, I am clicking through all of your links and loving all of the wonderful ornaments and patterns that you bought! I just might have to get some of them for myself now, too. :) And thank you ever so much for including links to my Etsy shop in this post as well. You are too sweet!


  8. Just checking in Sally since we haven't heard from you in awhile! Hope all is well...

  9. Hi Sally! I'm with Lori - just stopping by to check in with you since i haven't heard from you in awhile. Hope you are just busy with the holidays and having a ton of fun! xoxo Pam
