Art is a big way for kids to express their feelings so those items are always welcomed.

So hubs is not home, J is asleep...So I let my hair dry on its own. well I just finished it off was going to go upstairs and wrap that last thing and so I just put my ears on... there are two huge boxes on my back porch. I did not order anything. so, I'm trying to decide if I am supposed to not be the person to find the boxes lol... ( because, I did flash that sizzix die cutter at hubs last week) and he has not mentioned ordering anything either.

Yep, I got myself a Nook Tablet on BF, ordered a cover online that was originally backordered, then delayed with a do you want to substitute, now it just arrived. So Santa can wrap them together or each, however Mrs Claus decides.

I was just putting the stocking stuff together. Must have thought dd2 would REALLY love this one little Tangled/Rapunzel puzzle because I found two of them in my cupboard. Hope I can find the receipt.

It's sooooo quiet around here, can't even hear any cars on the "busy" street nearest me. I don't think I've ever been "home alone" on Christmas Eve because before I got married I worked at Target so would always be working during the day.

I read something or seen something ( may have been the today show this weekend some time...) they were talking about if you bought things like electronic things for kids to have charged it all ahead of time before you wrapped it... ( so kids had no wait for it to charge thing) and I thought, I have never done that in my life. it surprised me...

It's our instant gratification society. We're the opposite. We start 'em charging and do stuff together. They can hole up alone later.

Except that we almost NEVER give chargable electronics so no biggie. LOL.

And as for these boxes, I now have to kick everyone out so I can figure out what on earth is in them and what to do with them. AAAK

Long, but good day.
Cleaned, cooked, even did some windows. (funny how you notice them w/the Christmas lights on)
Skyped with DS2, DIL and 2 grands, while they opened gifts from us.
Lyla and her parents just left with all her loot.
Gonna unwind and rest for a while.

okay too much brown?

moved the stamp dresser to in front of the west window and then the table and file cabinets are in that other corner now. (this is just a progress post will do some better shots when I get it done)

my paper racks got welded then touch up spray painted today so they still stink and are downstairs in the garage still.

Not really browns to me. More creamy colors.

I LOVE your lighting set up. Didn't expect you to have that much natural light from the way you described that room.

its only at that end... see the barn in the background out the window? there are huge old russian olive trees between the garage and the barn also so in the summer the way the light goes its much darker. this was shot at the best time of day at this time of year. around 3 ish... 3:30 ish... shot a tag a little before 5 and its darker I think... I have not tried to make something in the dark in this corner yet.
I have some floor ott lights I can drag over there if needed.
