Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!!!!

Kelly, not sure if I should wish your DD luck on the possible job transfer or not! I know you hate to see her leave and she probably hates to leave so I hope if she goes it is a good change for her.

We have relocated away from family twice. But they keep finding us! LOLOLOLOL

Sharon, that is a huge pumpkin! Have a nice day with you mom and hubby!

I have a friend and she can ride all day but she does it on a regular basis. Don't even remember the last time I went horseback riding

Shhhh. I'm 52. Our daughter is 30 (we share the same birthday). This may be our last chance to be together for the holidays. She'll know when she gets back on Dec. 16th if they are moving to WA State some time next year for a job relocation.
Oh my! I don't think I've heard about this possibility of your DD moving away. If it's good for them, then I hope it all works out. I know how it will feel having her so far away from you too with the little ones. It's been hard having my DD and DGD's away from home all these years. I've made the best of it by taking trips once or twice a year to see them. At least it's something. I always thought it would be nice to have the girls visit me, but DD would never let them fly alone.

I'm not positive, but I think it should be open tomorrow. I think they just get today off as a holiday, but don't quote me on that.

Oh, good luck with the business. I still need to get my Etsy store open. Maybe after the first of the year things will slow down a little bit and give me some breating room. Where did you buy your fiberboard envelopes? I need to go to Staples and buy some square padded ones. They have them in the store, but I don't see them online.

Had a great time at my sis's with all her family and my older bro and his wife and my cousin. My DD was having dinner at her house this year so she could invite her MIL, FIL, and BIL and family over. They don't get together very often because the parents live pretty far away, so it was good that they were able to get together. They will come on our family outing tomorrow.

I feel like a turkey - STUFFED! There was so much food and it was all good.

I'm going to go play in my stamp room for a little while and finish up a DT card that is due on Sunday. Oh, and I need to send off a couple of the recipes I made today.

Sorry that you're still having problems with your knee. Hope the ice and elevation will help it and it'll get better.

Good morning Paper Bloggers!

We had a great time at Old Town Spring yesterday. There were 20 of us that went. I did get a few Christmas presents bought and we had lunch at Puffabelly's where we eat every year. Crazy! I was still full when we got home later so passed on the leftovers although I did make a plate up for me and brought it home for lunch today.

I think I'm going to have to miss the family fun activity today. I'm officially SICK! I started trying to get sick on Tuesday, but I thought I was able to stave it off. I was awake every hour last night after at 1:15 am. My sinuses are all stuffed up and this morning I have a low grade fever. They are going to the HPD Mounted Patrol stables to see the horses and then going to dinner. If I stay home today, I hope I'll feel better tomorrow to go to the last holiday family activity for this holiday. We have a family dinner for my DGD's birthday and celebrate the 3 other kids' birthdays for December. Then they are going to the Zoo where they have Christmas light display throughout the zoo.

Good morning!

Brenda and Brandy, I hope you both are recovering!

Maggie, ugh! That sucks you got sick. I hope you can feel better so you can go celebrate tomorrow.

I am glad your family changed the day to go to Old Town Spring from Sunday. That is so nice your family does so many things during Thanksgiving. I love to go to the zoo and Zoo Lights are always fun to go see.

We didn't go black Friday shopping (I never do) but I did tell DH I needed to go to Ikea. I needed a small desk top to add to my craft space. That photo printer takes up so much room and I was feeling cramped.

We ran in and out pretty quick and then went out to eat. When we got home I put the legs on (I had two extra) and rearranged my space and did some cleaning. Since I moved things around I could slide my Cricut down and give myself more space!

Hi Gals! I am doing better....just something I ate (I think). Maggie, I hope you feel better soon. Glad you got to enjoy your shopping day though. You asked what I shopped for....well nothing in particular. I really just like being out in the madness. LOL Don't get me wrong I have gifts left to buy for present but on Friday I wasn't too concerned about finding them. I love to go to the Disney Store (surprise LOL) because of the great specials. I did buy there and also at Macy's. We go every year on black Friday to breakfast and shopping. Years ago we would be up super early and to the stores when they opened. That has changed over the years as we have aged and also how the stores open on Thanksgiving. Usually there are four of us that go (my Aunt, Mom, myself and my friend Alana - the one with the chickens). Sometimes a cousin will go. I was also at the mall yesterday. Took DD. Drove across town to her favorite mall. We ate lunch and she got two sweaters and wanted to come home. LOL Last night we trimmed my mom's tree at her house. It is always fun trimming her tree as we all go over trim it and have dinner.

Today I am finishing my decorating. Told DH that what is not put out today goes back in the box. LOL DONE--want to just enjoy it. I am also going to see the movie White Christmas on the big screen. Our local theater is showing a different old Christmas movie every week. White Christmas is one of my favorites. I am off to see it alone. My buddy cancelled on me. I am ok with that though. I don't mind going on my own. I really do not want anyone going with me who doesn't love the movie. I already know there is a lot of singing in it. LOL

Nancy, glad you got your table. (Along with extra legs. LOL Someone else is probably missing legs.)

Have a good day everyone! I hope to update my blog tomorrow and visit all of yours. I have been a slacker lately....sorry!

Hello!

Not much going on here today. No crafting. Just some boring laundry.

Brenda, glad you are feeling better.

I am not looking forward to getting up at 5:30 tomorrow. Is it Christmas break yet? LOL

HI everyone! I tried to read and catch up. I had to clean house, including my craft room Friday. ( No Black Friday shopping for me) We had overnight company Saturday Sunday. The good kind. Mom and My miracle angel came with her sister and husband. Did me and Mom and my DH a world of good, to see them. Emcouragement and love!
Hope everyone is feeling better. So far I am still well, despite everyone around me having coughs and colds. Next thing is to decorate for Christmas at my house, already decorated Mom's with help of DH. Shopping, maybe i will do cyber thing tomorrow.
Have a nice evening.

Good morning Paper Bloggers!

I did not get to do Zoo Lights last night. I was still sick yesterday. I still had low grade fever when I got up so I stayed home and in bed for most of the day. Then I did get up and go to dinner out at Red Robin with the family. There were 32 there. It was my DGD's birthday so I didn't want to miss that. That was probably a mistake I started having chills while I was there and by the time I got home I was shivering a lot. Went right to bed and covered up with all my clothes still on. I shivered until 8:53 - seriously, almost 3 1/2 hours. When it stopped, I took my temp and it was 100.7. It did break during the night, but I"m still not feeling great this morning. But it's back to work. My sis is having the family over for Taco Soup tonight, but not sure I'm going to make it. I've lost so much time this weekend with being sick and not much has gotten done.

Good morning!

Maggie, I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. I hope you feel better today.

Hi Sharon, glad you have managed to not get sick!

I can't decorate the tree. DH got the boxes down the other day and yesterday when I went to look for the lights and ornaments, those were no where to be found! He put some in the attic above the garage and forgot! So he got two boxes down last night when he got home but one was outdoor stuff (mostly extension cords and spare bulbs. The other was the ornaments but I still need the lights.

That attic has no lights and it was dark when he was trying to get the right boxes. He needs to put a light up there if he is going to use it for storage!

Getting there, thanks Nancy.

Sorry about the lights. Hope they turn up soon so you don't have to go get more. Not sure what I'm doing about decorating.

Have you found the lights yet, Nancy? I had to go buy new lights last night. Thus none of the decorating I wanted done by now is accomplished. Going to have to bust today and tomorrow. I go get the girls on Saturday - for 9 days!

How was the movie, Brenda? I LOVE the old movies. I'd have been right beside you trying not to sing along. Our theater did that back in october with classic movies. I wanted to see Gone With the Wind but they showed it the night before we were to leave for Nashville. I'd have never made it out the door by 6 a.m. if I'd gone. LOL

I have tons to do today and tomorrow but wanted to pop in. I get the girls on Saturday for 9 days. We'll be doing lots of baking and candy making. But I MUST get the house decorated before I leave. Probably won't get back in here until after the Sinfonia project.
Hugs!

DH put the ornaments and my lights in the attic over the garage. It got the box ornaments down but there isn't a light up there and it was cold and dark outside the other night. I told him to wait until his day off the get the other box down. That will be tomorrow so I will be able to decorate the tree tomorrow.

I hope next year he remembers where he put everything!

How old are your DGD? That is nice they get to visit for 9 days. I don't bake at Christmas like I used to. That will be fun.

Hi ladies! Day is almost over - thank goodness. If it's much longer I might strangle my boss! He's in one of his moods and I'm not in the mood for his mood! LOL!

Hopefully tonight will be an easier night than the last few. Just took some more Advil and Vitamin C. I think tonight I need to go through my Christmas cards and see what I have and what I need. I know I need lots more than I'm going to get done. Also need to work on my DT cards that are coming up so they'll be done for the holidays and I'll get them scheduled on my blog. I hate to do that because then I don't get them linked up to challenges.

Sorry you boss is not in a good mood Maggie. I hope you can get some sleep tonight!

I was looking at challenges on paper playful a few minutes ago and I saw one of your cards of the Creative Card Crew (I think that is what it was or something that sounds like that LOL). I knew it was your before I saw the name and zoomed on the watermark. Funny how we can recognize each others style (also I think I saw it on your blog) LOLOLOLOL

Yep, that was me. That was my first DT card for CCC and it is on my blog. In fact, I need to go to the DT Blog and get the images for the next card or two and get working on them.

Nancy is your garage not connected to your house ? When I lived in Pa,the garage was separate from the house. haven't seen that much here if at all

I've been trying to start using pp on my cards more often.do you pick your papers first on your LO's or the pics ?I've been trying that way,but so far it hasn't worked.If anything it tends to block my creative flow.

It may be that I don't have much pp. so far I really don't like the pp choices I made.
Granted I chose them a long time ago and maybe my taste has changed. I dont really know what I'm looking for and I don't want to buy 1 sheet @time.

when we got the basic gray offer, I didn't pick any paper. maybe I was expecting too much. I didnt see anything I couldn't live without. maybe that's not the way to look @it

what do you think?

Thumbs up

Yes, the garage is attached to the house but the family room has vaulted ceilings and no attic space. The laundry room is between the family room and the garage. The garage has it's own attic space and the rest of the house has it's own attic space.

I attached a basic diagram because it is hard to explain.

As far as DP, I choose my pictures first. Sometimes it is basic, Christmas Pix, Christmas DP. But I need to decide which Christmas DP! LOL

Sometimes I pick a color from the pictures to use as the main color theme in my page and find papers that I have the fit that. Sometimes I get inspired by what the pictures are about. For example, I had bowling pictures and it was a birthday event. I wanted to scrap the actual bowling not the gifts and cake (I did that on a separate LO). There were stars on the bowling alley wall above the pins, I had some BasicGrey paper that had stars on the papers and the paper had a wood grain effect on it. So the light bulb goes off and voila, I have a page.

I know what you mean though about having paper and then not knowing what to do with it. I have paper I bought (on sale or I thought I liked it the time) now yrs later I don't like it and I try to use it but it is not working for me!

I have found over the yrs that it is better to buy many sheets in a specific line that all coordinate versus several of the same sheet (or just one) without any coordinating designs. It is really hard to match a sheet of DP with other DP that were not meant to go with each other (diff manufacturers, diff lines, etc). Colors are off, etc etc. Sometimes you can mix and match but it is time consuming to look through your stash to find things that might go together.

I don't usually buy paper for a specific project. I buy paper that I like. I do scrutinize my purchases and I might like something but I don't always buy it if I think it is too specific to something and I don't think I would scrap with it. Does that make sense?

I have a lot of DP and I don't really need more. So I don't buy as much as I used to but it is nice to get newer designs every once in a while.
