Wonderful news, Sarah! So happy for you.

Yay Dell! That's amazing news. You must be so proud.

Ladies! I am finally all moved in! Not unpacked - just moved in. I'm slowly unpacking all of the boxes and will hopefully get my craftroom done before the end of the week. Comcast is coming tonight so I'm hoping to have internet this evening....maybe I'll even get a blog post up!

Hope all is well with everyone!

I just finished my Thanksgiving cards that I send to a few select relatives. I recently purchased a Janome Sew Easy machine and used it to stitch along side of my cards. This machine rocks!!! I am so pleased with how my cards turned out. As soon as I get pics I will post to my blog.

congrats sarah! that's always a relief to be done moving. unpacking is always another story!! hope it's a smooth transition for you!

awesome dell. i tried stitching on my card once and failed miserably!! i know its a matter of practice to get used to it but i'm working up my courage to try again!

very much overdue on making rounds but will be getting to that soon and will definitely make all my rounds by the end of the night!

Good morning ladies! It's been a fun weekend filled with Christmas and birthday shopping. I have several bdays in December and my nephew in March...so many great deals on toys now so he's all set for both occasions now! Today is not a fun filled day lol - time to catch up on house chores. Hoping to squeeze in at least a little crafting time later.

Happy Friday everyone! Thanksgiving is next week. I am excited my DS is flying home on Monday. Looking forward to spending time with him and the rest of the family.

Who all is cooking on Thursday? I have my turkey, stuffing and everything pretty much figured out. I pick up the fresh turkey on Wed and will be brining it prior to cooking on Thurs. Can't wait!!!

OMG Dell, you are so organized. I haven't even thought of a turkey and I have to cook it on Wed. We are going camping for the weekend.
Enjoy your DS.

My DS flew in yesterday. Glad he made it b4 bad weather kicked in.

DD and SIL in Santa Barbara and bought a home to move out in the spring. They will be home for Thanksgiving. So, all kids will be here.

If I don't check in the rest of the week you know I am busy with family and the holiday.

I hope everyone has a safe and blessed Thanksgiving!

Dell - I'm impressed. Stitching is not one of my skills. Have fun in NYC! So envious. I'd love to go there.

Sarah - glad the move is going ok.

Hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving. I have to admit that I love that we celebrate it in October here in Canada. I like having the month off from turkey.

I had a Christmas party. I invite my friends & their kids and we eat & hang out. I get crafts for the kids and get them to decorate my tree. Picture of the tree on my blog.

This month I'm going to try for a post a day... we'll see how that goes!

Joyce, how was camping? It would be way too cold for that here.

Tomorrow I have to put together a set of my cards (ones that are already done) to donate to a fundraiser for the Philippines. A team of young men, a few of whom I know from my church, are heading there in early January to work with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) and help with relief efforts. There's a burger & beverage night tomorrow to help with the fundraising efforts.

I also have to go to the grocery store. I need to pick up a few things for baking. We're doing a cookie exchange on Saturday evening.

Hi all,
I've been MIA, I was pretty sick but feeling much better. Surgery was rescheduled from this week until the 16th.
Hopefully I'll get back to regular blogging for the new year.

Hi ladies,
So sorry I have been MIA lately. Hubby and I were off the week of Thanksgiving and spent a lot of quality time before the craziness of the holiday/Black Friday. I've been quite sick this past week but feel a little better today so I wanted to quickly check in. Christmas is sneaking up quickly and I am no where near ready. Decorations are mostly at least! Still need to take pictures of everything. Hoping I will be online more soon to catch up on visiting blogs.

December sure arrived fast. I can't believe it, only 17 shopping days til Christmas.

I'm suppose to have the December challenge and I forgot all about it. So here it is.

I know its Dec. and most everyone is working on the holidays. So...since we often have Christmas in July, how about Summer in December. Some of you have had snow and lots of cold, so lets get warm.
The challenge is to create something summery. This will be the code CWPPTDEC13 if you post to the gallery.
Am I suppose to do something with the code in the galleries? or does it take care of itself?

You have been quite busy Tania.
I did go camping Thanksgiving weekend. We had Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, ham and all the fixings. Everything was from scratch. I did put Stovetop stuffing on the table but everyone ate my homemade gluten free stuffing and I put a can of cranberry sauce on the table, but again homemade cranberry sauce outdid the canned stuff. I ended up throwing the boxed stuffing and canned cranberry sauce away. Mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, both from the real thing. I really enjoyed cooking the dinner this year.
There were 12 of us at our Thanksgiving table eating outside as the pilgrims must have done. The day was sunny and comfortable. It was a great day.

Hopefully I'll get back to regular blogging for the new year.
Joyce, I will be thinking and praying for a quick recovery. Take care of yourself.

So sorry I have been MIA lately. Hubby and I were off the week of Thanksgiving and spent a lot of quality time before the craziness of the holiday/Black Friday. I've been quite sick this past week but feel a little better today so I wanted to quickly check in. Christmas is sneaking up quickly and I am no where near ready. Decorations are mostly at least! Still need to take pictures of everything. Hoping I will be online more soon to catch up on visiting blogs.
Kristie, sorry to hear you were under the weather. Seems like this month is flying by so fast. That is for sure!

I know its Dec. and most everyone is working on the holidays. So...since we often have Christmas in July, how about Summer in December. Some of you have had snow and lots of cold, so lets get warm.
The challenge is to create something summery. This will be the code CWPPTDEC13 if you post to the gallery.
Am I suppose to do something with the code in the galleries? or does it take care of itself?

Thanks for posting Joyce. You don't need to do anything with the code. Everyone just uses it as a keyword when they post their picture of their creation.

I like your challenge. Now, if I can ever find time this month to get it done...

I can hardly believe that I finally did a blog post and gave each of you some blog lovin' to boot! I am slowly figuring out this blasted computer with my pics. I think it will get easier the more I fiddle with it.

I am all packed and ready to go to NYC! I have a few loose ends to tie up this week. Plus, I am working Tues and Wed.

I hope everyone has a fabulous week!
