I was good. I didn't order anything...but will keep it in mind for my next splurge (if I hadn't spent soooo much at JoAnn's I would have given in)

Have to work again today...sigh.....and with a half finished project on my desk just waiting for those little extras!!

HAHA!! I'm with you on that one!! We decided a couple of years ago to start having Thanksgiving Supper.....keeps us from overeating twice in one day, allows time for a bike ride or hike in the morning, early afternoon and then we don't feel like we've wasted the afternoon sitting around rubbing our tummies!!

Have two plates of Pumpkin Flan in the ovens....should be interesting to see if they turn out!

Hey girls! Been a while. Spent my weekend decorating for Christmas. I'm hoping that I don't end up working all day tomorrow so that I can finish it up.

Hey, Starla,

No one here even suggested getting out the Christmas decorations. And tomorrow, it's back to work and school for all but me. I think I will be without wheels on Mon. & Wed. DH will be going to the big radiology show in Chicago. He's commuting this year (train), so he'll drive to the train station & leave his car there all day, so DD will need mine.

My cards are ready for Tuesday, so that means I have time to play or clean tomorrow. I have my 3rd load of laundry in the dryer, but still have more that need doing and I have a counter full of dirty dishes.

I started tying my quilt that I found when I went digging for a craft - I'm about 3/4 done. Then I need to see if I can find the fabric to make the binding. I can't believe I had this quilt so close to finishing and didn't get it done. It'll be nice to have another one available for those cold winter nights.

Well, the only reason my Christmas stuff got up at all is because DH and the boys put up the trees. I put the lights and ribbon on the boy's tree and they decorated it(& I've left it exactly how they did it!). I had a pity party complaining about all the hours I've been having to work lately and about not having time to do anything and DH has been stepping up to the plate more

I'm giving myself permission not to stress on making Christmas cards. If they happen , great. If not, oh well! And I bought the teacher gifts this year. I just do not have the time this month to make gifts (I'm working almost the entire month of Dec).

My grandmother used to make quilts. Too close to sewing for me, LOL!

Oh, I've done my share of sewing, but quilt making is just so different. I especially love the creative process of putting different fabrics together. With that being said, I don't know why I have such a difficult time using patterned papers on my cards.

I would probably stress too much as to whether or not the patterns "matched". I'm lousy at mixing patterns!!

I make mostly scrap quilts and you don't need to worry about being matchy, matchy. Gotta love that!

I just got a free book on cross stitching Christmas stockings (really detailed ones) and had a brief moment where I considered doing that again (it's been YEARS since I've done it). But my sanity came back!
I don't know of I'd enjoy quilting. But I admire those of you who do that type of thing!

On Joan B's blog! I never win anything and this week I've won twice! I'm serious, I think I should buy a lotto ticket! Lol!

The girls at work got me a $55 gift card to Michael's for my b-day. I'm going to do some fun shopping after I get all the grey x
covered on my head(gotta hide that aging thing!)

Hey girls!! Just thought I'd pop in and see if anyone was around. DH is gone for the evening...the boys are gone, and I can actually see my desk top so I thought I might do some playing with some stamps

Hey, girl. I did my 2nd card for my Tuesday class (the last one - yay!) and then I tried to do the IC for today and just couldn't get my card to come together. I was trying to make it as one of my cuttle club cards, but no go.

I keep thinking it's Sunday today, so I guess that gives me an extra day yet to get cards ready for Thurs. class.

Cold today -- 30's. brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

30?!!! Guess I should quit complaining when it hits the mid/upper 30's at night...at least I can sleep thru it! (wellllll, except that on the bedroom side of the house, the furnace is NOT working properly....DH's job for the day!)

I've been playing around with some of the different techniques that Tim Holtz is showing on his blog for the 12 tags of Christmas...having fun but need to get tags actually MADE!! LOL

Oh, yeah... we have some snow on the ground, too! That's been there a few days. Some has melted (from the sun -- not the temps!), so there is some grass showing, but there's still enough to know it's there.

I've been following along with Tim, but haven't had time to try any of the tags.

I got one card ready for Thurs. class, but still need to come up with 2 more.

We got a dusting of snow in the mountains last week...but nothing here (thank goodness!!)

Got three tags done. One of the ones I did today is my FAVORITE. I really wish I had the photography skills to show it off better!! IRL it is too cool!! LOL

I broke down & put the heating blanket on last night. I just turn it on while I'm getting ready for bed, so the bed is nice & toasty when I crawl in. Then I shut it off or I get too hot during the night.

Every year I say I'm going to buy a heating blanket and then I never do!! I'm not so worried about being cold in the night...it's the getting out of the warm bed to the freezing (haha) air that worries me!! Our hot water is going to be on high demand for morning showers!

Hi Dawn!! Yeah....this thread is pretty much me, Melody and you (when you pop in!) oh wellll....I enjoy keeping up with you gals

I still don't know if I'm working tomorrow or not. Am "on-call" for the assistant therapist who has jury duty but don't know if she'll get called in. Then if she doesn't, the boss wants to try and double book with me covering so that we can get new patients in.....and in that case, if they'll come in...I'll work at 10 till ????! Being on call really stinks 'cause it is hard to plan my days!!

I'll try and take a peek in the am and see what is happening on your blog....oh wait...te bella hop was yesterday?

Being on call really stinks 'cause it is hard to plan my days!!

I'll try and take a peek in the am and see what is happening on your blog....oh wait...te bella hop was yesterday?
I totally agree about the on call thing, although I rarely get called in anymore, which is ok with me, except for the money aspect. Last month I worked for 4+ hours for the first time in about 9 months. You learn to say 'no' yet? If you hired for part time, don't let them take advantage of you.

And speaking of Bellas, I have a few I should sell, since I NEVER use them.

When I first started working I was to work 2 days a week...but we got really slow and so I worked it out with my current boss (he bought the clinic where I was working) to be on call and just work when I was needed. So, I don't have set hours. And I have said no a couple of times, but the $$ is good and since DH's paycheck is commission based...it's always good to have some extra.

I have NO Bellas....they never really did it for me.

Did I tell you that DH gave me a very nice gift certificate to my LSS for my b-day? Now to find the time to go shopping!! I think I will spend it on embellishments and distress reinkers. Tho, one mini set of Tim Holtz might jump in there too!!

Nice! We don't have too much left here as far as small local stores, except for a couple that are big on scrapbooking rather than stamping. The one doesn't carry any woodmounted stamps, only clear. The other has mostly whipper snapper (home store for them) and that is not my style.

I emailed dh with a long list of stuff (with direct links to specific products) at scrapbookingalley.com, so I should get some stuff that I want. I'll still be surprised, but will know that it's something I want. If he has to figure it out on his own, he is totally lost. After almost 30 years of marriage, he has yet to figure it out!

Our LSS is more focused on scrapbooking too, but they do had some stamps, the Tim Holtz stuff (or some of it), tattered angels glimmer mist (loving that stuff lately!)...embellies.....

Good idea on the e-mail with the direct links...I need to do that (have some nesties that I'd like to get!! hehe)

Well I did not get any stamping done today. I did, however, make a pair of hot pads for a gift exchange on Saturday.

No stamping here either. The heat is still out on this side of the house and I just could not get past the fact that my hands were/are FREEZING!!

I'm REALLY hoping that I don't have to work tomorrow (yep...have to work again today...boss had his house broke into two weeks (?) ago and they took his passports...which they are going to try and get replaced today....in LA....which means I'm covering. Then we are headed into LA this afternoon to watch our high school girls play basketball at the Staples Center f/b a Clippers/Magic game (late night!!)....

So what's new girls? How did your last class go, Melody?
Things are sameosameo here. Trying to play some still with the 12 Tags of Christmas but still getting called into work quite a bit. Hoping to finish all my Christmas shopping this weekend as I work pretty much full time for the rest of the month ($$ for Christmas, that's what keeps me from grumping too much)

Funny you should ask . How's your heat? We are frigid here. It was zero this morning and I think it's under 15 right now.

Class was great. I thought I had 4 signed up, so had supplies for 4. Ooops. One lady cancelled (death in family), but another one came that I wasn't expecting, so it all worked out ok.

Got an email from a friend wanting to order some stuff. Well, officially, I have not told SU I was dropping, so I 'ahem' signed... and put in an order for her & me combined. Then today she asked if I'd do a small workshop next week & I said yes. This could potentially meet my min. this quarter - duh! And here I was all set to go pending on Jan. 1. How's that for surprises?

Amazing how much difference a couple of degree. Makes! We finally got the heat running on Wed. Thank goodness since we are being hit with another storm (of course, it is nothing like your weather! Thank goodness!!)

So, did you have to sign the new IDA to put in the order? Funny thing, I sent an "official" e-mail to su stating I was resigning, but they treated me as a demo who just went into pending. I got e-mails with suggestions for booking ideas and a "hope things will improve in your situation, as we'd love to welcome you back". Kinda ticked me off as I felt that they refuse to acknowledge those of us who did not chose to sign the new IDA. Made me think that they pad their stats re: demos. They don't want to know that demos might not be gaga over them

Good for you! I have mine partly done. That happened sorta by accident. The kids went out shopping at a mall and when they were almost into the parking lot, the car died, so they had to have it towed. I went to the tow garage to pick them up and was going to pick up supper at the same time, but it was only about 3:30, so we decided to stop at Kmart,since we were going right past. I found a few things for Mark.

Yes, I had to sign the ida to place an order (well, I didn't try before I signed - just assumed).

I don't think SU has yet felt the full impact of demos not signing. They had a challenge to receive a discount on stamps from the mini (average sales) and I think that # was really low because there are a lot of demos not ordering, but are still on the books. I know I'm only one person, but I didn't order at all in Oct. or Nov. (and that includes customer orders) which is not the norm for me at all.

I finished up my 3rd card for tech. class and then worked a bit on my Christmas cards. They are pretty simple, but I can't do the inside until I get a new ink cartridge for my printer. Both color and B&W are empty. I won't be able to go until after DS gets home from school tomorrow 'cause he's gonna need my car. They won't look at his until tomorrow.
