Good morning Ladies!!
How is your weekend going? Zoom- mine is almost gone!! Time sure does move too fast, doesn't it!
We hope to get the tree up today... every year we say this is the last year for that artificial tree, next year we buy a new one. Every year we don't want to spend the $$ on the tree, would rather spend it on gifts for kids and family! LOL So I think we win the Shabby Tree award!!

Good Morning Ladies... I'm rushing through this morning. It's going to be a busy/wild day here!

Darlene, I am sure your tree will look gorgeous when it's up and decorated! Have fun with it!!!

Good Morning, Ladies. I've posted a card to my blog and am getting ready to go see what you've been up to as well.

Good morning everyone!

Even though it's foggy and dreary outside, my day is off to a GREAT start! I just won three digis at Dilly Beans and two images at There's Magic In The Air for their card challenges! I love free!

Soon DD will arrive and we are spending the day baking and shopping!

Hope everyone's Monday is a good one!

Default Dropping in

I am dropping in to say hello- I was thrilled to get around to say hello to everyone on Sunday night. What a great night of inspiration everyone is!

I had the most exciting week- on top of working alot.....daughter is home from college- we have the tree up and nothing else- no decorations inside. Hubby has the lights up and we have a Nativity set my Dad made in the yard. ...I am making a few Christmas cards but far from having enough......

Thanks Lynn and Laura for the great cards- we are going to take our kids picture in Colorado next weekend- we are leaving Thursday night...I am working extra on Thursday too...we are NUTS at work- it is insane! I have no gifts purchased......Oh well...it will be good..... We have a 15-16 hour ride in the car each way....youngest will be picked up in Michigan Thursday day and we will head out once she is home and gets packed.

Anyway, my exciting news- I won a HUGE Blog Candy- the Technique Junkies had 5 blog hope last week- i commented on all of them...and won the grand prize.....all of the loot is posted on my blog....The best part- I won a Technique Junkies membership for LIFE- seriously!!! Wahoo!!!

I have a couple of sets I already have, so I have to decide what to do with them.....I am not wanting to offend stamp companies by giving them as blog candy...so we'll see.

Sorry- did not intend to just talk about self- I hope everyone is coming along with decorating, baking , cards etc...... Lynn, I hope Raggedy Ann gets all done in a timely manner! How fun.

We had a dusting of snow here one day last week, but we are still in the higher 30's and low 40's....we usually have a bit more snow by now.

Off to hit the hay! Sweet dreams!

Shelly

Congrats Shelly on your amazing win! What an exciting surprise that was!

I got some baking done yesterday, still have shopping to do, and am planning the menus for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. All the kids have their food requests in!

No snow on the ground here in southwestern MN, which is very unusual! We may get freezing rain this afternoon - hope not!

Have a great day everyone!

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't popped in the last few days.........no excuse!

All is good here. Hubby went back to the doc yesterday and is coming along good. We figure about another 3/4 weeks and all should be healed completely! Yes!!

Paige and Shelly, congrats on your winnings! That's just great and so exciting.

Roro, I'm really having a hard time thinking of something you can take to the Christmas party that's not a dessert and doesn't require a full size oven! Absolutely the only thing I can think of is a relish or cheese and cracker tray! Yikes! Does anyone else have any ideas?????

Shelly, yall, be careful on your trip and have fun.

I see everyone has updated on their blog this past week....and they've been wonderful!

Christmas is next week......is everyone ready for that? We may go to my brothers house (about 3 hours away) - or may just stay here by our lonesome......

Hope everyone has a good week.

Lynn

Good evening my blogging friends!
I must say that adding your blogs to my early morning routine has made for a nice start to my days. Thanks to each of you for your postings. I hope to get more regular with my blog posts. It may help balance out my life!

Shelly, what a GREAT win for you!! Woo hoo on that blog candy prize! I'm sure that you will put it to good use making even more dazzling creations!

Lynn: I am very happy to hear of your husband's progress! Praying that it continues in this manner.

Paige: way to go on the baking front! Want to come to my house for me???? Hmmm?? pretty please???? Oh, we are also absent any white stuff, nothing but rain in sight this week. Yuk.

Well, that's all she wrote (so to speak) for tonight! Turning in and trying to get warmer under the blankets. Waving to all of you!

Good Morning Ladies!

WOW!!! Looks like some of us have won some incredible things here lately!!! Congratulations Paige and Shelly!

Roro, you could do a veggie/dip tray... or apples and dip. I make a fruit dip that is simply cream cheese and brown sugar mixed together. It is really good with sliced apples. Or you could make a cheeseball and have it with crackers. My DH would prefer for me to make Peanut Butter Fritos (they are marvelous!!!). I'll post the recipe in a minute.

I've been enjoying visiting all of your blogs now that my life is a little more manageable! Very creative!

Hope your day is fabulous!!!

Peanut Butter Fritos

Frito Scoops - spread them out in one layer on waxed paper

1. Cook the Sugar and White Corn Syrup together in a pan until the Sugar is dissolved.

2. Add the Peanut Butter. Mix until smooth.

Roro, my DD made these when she was here for Thanksgiving. They were yummy...

Easy OREO Truffles Recipe - Allrecipes.com

She dipped hers in White Chocolate instead of semi sweet and they were quite pretty!

Congrats on the win Paige! I checked out the Dilly Beans a few days ago - don't remember what link sent me there (maybe Feline Playful?) because I've never heard of them before but those are very cute digis.

It is VERY good, Paige.

Roro, this is another good fruit dip... mix together Marshmallow Creme and Cream Cheese.

Thanks Lynn and Jeanette~~

I think relish or cheese and cracker tray and veggie & dip tray are great as appetizer. I will put all of them in a big tray so it's colorful! I will also make guacamole for the cracker.


Congrats Shelly! You are so lucky!

I updated 2 cards and visited around.


It's just a few days left before Xmas! Will there be any big sale for art & craft before Xmas? or after?

Afternoon, Ladies! How are you all doing? Did a hop yesterday, will do again today

Congrats on your winning, Paige and Shelly! Hehe.

Anyway, have you girls have any packaging ideas for snowman soup? I need a tutorial actually... Did a search on youtube and came up really scarce. And in here too... Not a lot of ideas.

Oh and also, since I'm just now frantically doing my small Xmas gifts... Anyone have any ideas what to put on those little matchboxes that's cut from SU's matchbox die?

Thanks in advance!!

I'm still here! I haven't been getting any updates from our group......you know when you get those e-mails saying someone commented in the group! Um.......oh well, I guess I'll just have to check in more often now!

Hope everyone is ready for the weekend ...... and sure you are! To think that next week is Christmas! Yikes! Sure got here quick it seems.

Good Morning All!
I was without a computer for a few days due to a virus, but it's all cleaned up now! I was a raving maniac without my 'puter! Poor DH had to listen to me moan and groan for 2+ days!

I'm all finished with my Christmas shopping (just waiting for UPS to arrive this week!)! So a few gifts left to wrap and then I can check that off my ever-growing To Do List!

Have a fun and productive weekend!

Morning!

Paige, that's great that you have all your shopping done, etc...I just saw in the paper this morning that the stores are really expecting a crowd of people on Sat. the day before Christmas! I wouldn't even want to think about shopping on that day! Yikes

Is anyone going to be having a white Christmas! Of course we're not going to have that where I live in Texas - never have had one and don't expect it this year either. We're doing good to get even a sprinkling of that white stuff. Of well..........

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Just checking in, been so busy with the kids the last week. We are on our summer break here now so we had Connor's school prizegiving last week and Angus' Kindy Christmas party. Kindy here is different than the USA, we start Kindy at around 3years old here and they finish when they are 5 and start at Primary School (Elementary?) It isn't full time, Angus goes 3 days a week and he loves it.

The weather is freezing at the moment here, and we are supposedly heading into our summer, I am looking forward to it actually getting here.

Congrats to both Paige and Shelly on your wins, awesome stuff.

Wow you guys have some great recipes too, yum!

Ok that is it from me, off to watch Fast times at Ridgemount High on tellie.

Hope you are all looking forward to the holiday season.

Good Morning All!

What's on the agenda for everyone today? I'm going to spend some time cleaning off my stamping table and putting away xmas card supplies.

Anyone have a good idea for keeping track of card challenges you enter? Like requirements, due dates, etc. Anyone have any favorite challenges they like to enter? I'm thinking of choosing a few and doing those on a regular basis, rather than bouncing around like I have been.

Oh yes, it's going to be a white Christmas here in southwest SK, Canada. Not too cold though... the temp is very mild right now and in fact, when I was walking out of the mall yesterday, I saw someone in shorts! That's a little over the top though because it's not warm enough for that!

No snow here I'm afraid.........but that's normal! One of these years I may see a white Christmas but guess I'll have to travel somewhere to see it. Oh well.........We're hovering in the 50's and I just stay cold all the time! I've always said that once that first little cold front comes in, I get cold and don't thaw out until April!

Paige, you asked about challenges, etc. I've been thinking the same thing as far as just picking a few and sticking with them, etc... I don't really know a real good way to keep track of them. One thing I do after entering a challenge though is to go to my Yahoo calendar and mark down to check the date the challenge is over with to see if I won anything. By doing that, it'll pop up in my e-mail on that date and I can check it then. Also, I very seldom enter more than like three challenges.........maybe I'm just too lazy to look all of them up that would fit my card! LOL!

Lou, I can just image how busy you must be with all the children right now. Busy time of year.

Stopping in for a quick hello- we have internet in our condo finally....we only had it down in the hot tub room when we got here- the chemicals are really strong in there- I cannot stop coughing! There is an outdoor hot tub- hubby and I went in it the other night- it was 9F outside......it was fun.....

The crew is all going skiing tomorrow- so I have a basket of stamping stuff with me and I will try to create...then, taking my son shopping for his Christmas stuff.....he works as a ski instructor- so he wants some good boots and equipment like that.

I cannot send out e-mails- I can read them though- so I just realized I can jot a note.....I had better head to bed so I can accomplish something tomorrow!

I hope everyone is calmly getting ready for Christmas- I have not done my Christmas cards yet- we get back Thursday and I have to work Fri, Sat and Mon.....LOL they will prob be late...Oh well!!

Cheers
Shelly

Shelly, sounds like you are having a very good time - enjoy! I love to make cards, but have a very difficult time with actually addressing envelopes and mailing them out1

Lynn, thanks for the calendar idea for challenges. I very rarely use the same card for more than one challenge. I just don't have the desire (or organizational skills) to pull that off!

Hope everyone has a good week before Christmas!

Good Morning!

What's everyone up to today? I need to make out my grocery list for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals. But first I have to hunt down some recipes. My kids have made some requests for certain dishes that I haven't made in awhile, so I need to find them.

I have three more gifts to wrap, but am waiting on delivery yet for a couple of things! Yikes! But I'm actually further ahead this year than any other year,so that feels good!

However, once again I did not get my cards mailed out! I love making them, mailing, not so much! Oh well, that won't surprise family and friends!

Paige, I'm impressed! I haven't even started wrapping..... need to get that done today and/or tomorrow. I also need to put together a menu and go to the grocery store. Other than that, my shopping is finished, as far as I know.

What are you planning to fix for your meals? I'm looking for ideas. LOL!

It will just be the 5 of us, so not a huge meal, but a challenge, becasue we don't all like the same things.

Well for Christmas Eve we do appetizers and soups. My DH makes oyster stew,which only a few eat (not me) and I make a different soup each year. This year's request is Potato with ham. My daughter wants Reuben dip and one son wants stuffed mushrooms, the other wants wings! They all want shrimp/cream cheese/cocktail sauce dip, mini meatballs, and some sweets!

For Christmas Day I do a turkey again with the usual sides: mashed potatoes, dressing, green bean casserole (which I didn't make for Thanksgiving and heard about it from everyone!) and then I've been asked to make snicker salad and a strawberry jello cream cheese pie.

Y'all are making me extremely hungry!!! We still don't know who, if anyone, will be here for Christmas. My son and family were here at Thanksgiving, so they won't get to come back for Christmas. My daughter and her family will be here tomorrow and then leave on Friday. We're having chicken and dumplings tomorrow night - yea! I love those things.....

We may go to my brother's for Christmas this weekend, and then again, we may just get in the car and go wherever!. Jim's kids and their families are really hit and miss...you never know if they're going to show until about 30 minutes before they get here! One year they didn't show up for Christmas until February!!!!! Weird, I know......

Oh, I was asking about on-line after Christmas sales......Just saw that Mark's Finest Papers has one and Close To My Heart has a HUGE sale going on! Any more out there I haven't seen yet?
