“I don’t wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work.” -Pearl S. Buck
Well Miz Buck would be proud of me! I have been gettin er dun  here here at Silver Thimble World Headquarters. I have a special project (don’t whine you know it has to be a secret which will be revealed at sometime in the future!). I have been putting in some very late nights…very late. The other night I was working and struggling with a new project. It was 1 am and I had a major moment of inspiration. (it was divine). I told myself I was going to go to bed after I put this one little thing down on paper. Next thing I knew I looked at the clock and it was 4:30 am! CRIKEY I had been lost in the design for HOURS and was so happy I forgot to sleep. THE… I’M GOING TO BE TIRED TOMORROW REALITY HIT ME, but I swear the magic of getting those creative thoughts aligned is such an amazing thing. Until the real world hits and one is faced with the reality that one is far beyond the age where one should pull an all nighter! (dang!)
We are planning a weekend trip to Asheville! I’m so excited. The whole family will be together speading family Christmas joy in the Mountains of North Carolina. 

We are going here!
The fabulous Grove Park Inn!

To see these…

National Gingerbread Contest Houses..I wonder if I can break off a piece of them?

Then we are on to the amazing Biltmore House, they decorated the house and invited us in for a VISIT. So sweet of them to do that.
I’m going to mind blank all the work that needs to be done and go have a great time with the hubby and our wonderful children. We always have so much fun together. I’ll take my camera!
