For Tom
Thoughts: Under the definition of naughty you might see the name Tom. My brother-in-law was teasing me today about my blog, it's length and frequency.
So Tom, I knew I needed to blog today and dedicate this post to you. I just wanted you to know that Santa is making a list and checking it twice and he knows if you've been naughty or nice!

Things: Tom, I know you like to do crafts so I thought this would be something that you would like to make. It's easy enough that even you could do it! All it takes is a cone shaped styrofoam, red and green gum drops and a glue gun. Just glue on the gumdrops row by row in any color combination you would like! Have Meladie help you so you don't burn yourself.


  1. Oh joy, You are so much fun. I'm an avid reader of this little blog:]

  2. Keep them coming Joy!! I would miss your posts if they weren't as frequent. It was good to see you the other day.

  3. What a pretty blog. I have become a new follower. The gumdrop tree looks good enough to eat!



  4. Hello Joy,
    I just found your blog this evening after reading a post by Elizabeth at Creative Breathing. She was right---your blog is wonderful. I had such fun looking around. I read your motto and I definitely left your blog a little happier :) I will be sure to check back often for a visit and will add you to my favorite blogs.

  5. Joy,
    I came over from Elizabeth's blog and I am so happy I did....I do occasionaly stop by but you re now in my favorites! I lvoe your decorating for Christmas and I am going to make a gumdrop tree! I have the gumdrops if I am lucky enough to find the tree! LOL

  6. Hi Joy: Elizabeth sent me over to pay you a visit... I love, love, love your tree. No ornaments sounds great to me...and you don't even miss them! Where id you get that beauty? Hope you get some snow soon!

    Stay Cozy, Carrie

  7. Another visitor here arriving from E's blog!

  8. Hello Joy,
    Just flew over from Elizabeth's blog to say hello. Love the gumdrop tree. Looks like a fun craft to do with my children. I think they would enjoy that. Thanks for sharing that.

  9. Hi joy! I'm so glad Elizabeth shared your blog with us. It is delightful! Im running to add you to my blog list so I can be sure to keep up with you.

    thanks for sharing! please stop by and visit me too!

  10. I'm hopping over from Creative Breathing! You have a beautiful blog and I've added you to my favorites so that I can visit often. Love all your crafts and quilts and decorating! Blessings, :) Tammy

  11. Hi, Joy, I'm Holly and I'm a friend of Elizabeth! What a cute little blog you have and now maybe Tom will start a blog, too. Hee-hee! ♥

  12. Hi Joy,
    I'm Sue (Mrs Twins). Well after reading Elizabeths post I thought I would pop over to you. What a wonderful blog you have here. So pretty, and such a lot of fun! The gum tree is a brilliant idea.
    I'll become a follower if I may! I'll visit you often. I must visit some more of Elizabeths' readers. I'm missing out on a lot.
    Wishing you seasonal greetings Joy and your family.
    Hope you'll pop over to the UK for a cup of tea!
    Hugs and Love Suex

  13. Joy, I read the post 'creative breathing' made about your blog, nice. Although I often don't leave a comment I check your blog daily and love your frequent posts. know I love your home and decorating but mostly you.

  14. Oh my goodness Joy. That is hilarious. Way to go! Even though he gave you a hard time, he loves it. I am sure he checks in often, how would he know the length and frequency?! Isn't that what we love about my dad, his humor. I am glad you know him well enough to know that it is all in good fun. I loved this post. Probably my favorite all year. Keep it up. Can't wait to see everyone. Love Lisa (Tom's daughter)

  15. I agree with lis, what my dad fails to realize is that he basically made fun of himself right along with ya...he for sure reads it almost else would he know how often ;) Love your blog joy I too am an avid reader. Keep up the fun posts!!!
