It's very hard to buy just a few Copics because they are used for shading and blending, so you basically need at least 2 or 3 friends that go together to blend and shade. Then there are about 8 sets of color shades plus the 4 shades of grays.

My head is still stuffed up! I'm still having a little cough. No, I haven't gone to the doctor. It's about what I had earlier this year....which was viral. So, I'm doing what I did then. Musinex D during the day....except when you run out! So, we were at Walmart today...picking up all kinds of stuff. I'm not the only one sick around here!
Get well Suzy! I hope Jack doesn't get it from you.

On a brighter note...
Sue is not looking forward to bed sharing with Adrian. Adrian is a bed hog -as are most toddlers hehe. I can sleep with her no problem but Kassie trained me years ago and I adore that snuggle time with Adrian. Nothing like opening your eyes in the morning to either seeing a sleeping child or to see her awake, wide brown eyes watching you and see the smile spread across her face when she knows you've caught her. And then there's that softly whispered ' hi grandma'.

So I'm going to text Sue this morning and see if she wants the air mattress downstairs in the office (which means the filing cabinets don't get put into place just yet) and I'll sleep up here with A.
Awwwwwww. . . I'm sad. At least you didn't have to do the deed yourself.

Good luck with getting the sleeping arrangements all figured out.

I'll check back in around lunch. Have a good day!
Good luck on your new project there.

Your treats sound yummy, Soni. Hopefully I can play tomorrow. I've kind of lost steam today. Had a little whitehead come up on my eyelid and of course, no eye wash in the house so wound up going into Winona. So ate lunch and went to Dollar General. I'm home to stay now.

Sleeping arrangements all figured out - the girls aren't coming. Apparently the ball joint was going out on the Neon so Sue had to spend almost $600 getting that fixed. They had to schedule it for tomorrow. Of course, she still has to get the plates taken care of on the car and she can't get time off now until after first of year... and Bob's only week off in Jan. is the very last week. Pray for decent driving weather because the plates expire the end of Jan. and she has to get them renewed.

This is a pic of the entire revamped entertainment center. The drawers on the left are all (from top to bottom): adhesives (1) letters tiles (1) embellishments (3) applicators (1) punches (1) embossing (1) inks (1) scrap Blk/ Wh CS (1) scrap color cs (1) scrap paper (1) Ephemera scraps (1)

The right side is all of my stamps by them except for the bottom for drawers. From the bottom up the deepest drawer is for big tools like my empunchlar and extra heat gun, then the next 3 are all fibers.

I've never had room on here for accessories before so I must have done something right. The center shelf on the bottom is the magazine holders I made to hold tutorial books by category.

The next shelf up is the magazines, then the next shelf all of my paper, filed in keepers by theme. The 3-drawer unit on that shelf is all paper, embellishments and keepsakes to do Adrian's book(s)

Yummy, that sure is a lot of cookies.

Wonder if DD is going to make some? That would be a fun thing for us all to do together after my other DD gets there next week.

Oh, I'm so sad that Sue and Adrian won't be coming down. I guess that means you guys won't get time together for Christmas.

That's too bad about her car troubles.

Wow! That is sure something Kelly. Where did you find that piece of furniture with all those small drawers?

You've done a great job getting all that done.

Better to know it now than have had something happen on the road trip. Not nice weather to be stranded on the side of the road with a little one.

It's an entertainment center, Maggie. Sue left it behind when she left home the first time. (She didn't want to take it apart hehe)

I designed the drawers and Bob made them for me. I spread out all my supplies, measured how shallow the drawers needed to be. The width/ depth was determined by the sections of the entertainment center. The stamp drawers for example are the depth of 1 layer of stamps and I have each theme in it's own drawer. Some double up like Fall/ Halloween or Easter/ Valentine's Day, etc.

You might have missed them before but for a sneak peek at the insides of a couple drawers you can go into my gallery. Pg 2 - last pic is 1 (of 3) fiber drawers and then top of pg. 3 shows a sample of the stamp drawers and the embellishment drawers.

I didn't do too much to this itself except putting stuff into containers and labeling everything so it 'looks' nicer.

On the paper shelf where the 3-drawer unit is at, when I get A's album(s) done, I'll have room for MORE PAPER! hehe

Of course, you realize with the girls not coming until the last week in Jan, my tree will be staying up until after they've gone. LOL - at least 2 extra weeks.

So sorry to hear Sue is dealing with car issues... and yes she needs to be able to get that car back for the plates...

So you will not get to see Miss A open her gifts then will you?? : (

Goodness, where is everyone this evening? I hope everyone's okay.

It has been sleeting here on and off all day. The temp is now 32 degrees... 8 degrees warmer than it was when I went to lunch! What's up with that? I didn't realize it had gotten slick til I took Lady out. Woops! I've salted the deck down so it won't be bad when we go out at bedtime.. no more surprises.

Bob just got into Lemont. He's going to Menards for duct work then driving as far as Lincoln. Said he'll stay there tonight then drive on home tomorrow. I feel better knowing he's not trying to drive all the way. He just wants out of Chicago so he doesn't have that traffic to deal with tomorrow morning. From Lincoln, he'll only be about 6 hours away.

I am here, trying to catch up as supper finishes in the oven...
Taco Bake

Our snow has not started yet ... it is 23 right now... still calling for 1 - 3 inches

I am glad Bob is stopping for the night too, that is a long day driving... especially with stops to make... I imagine he will be disapointed that the girls are not coming...

Thanks, Soni. I think my biggest tips would be to condense like things into containers so you're not wasting time moving lots of items to get to something else and to label the containers so you know exactly what's in there... not having to take off lids to see what's in there.

He's the one who told me. Sue called him and had him talk to the mechanic at Firestone and between the 3 of them made the decision she shouldn't take it out on the road until it was fixed.

Yes, he was just south of St. Louis - in Naples - when he made crew change. So he had to make that trip to Chicago. Luckily, he did get a good nap in before he went on watch so he has some 'up' time left in him. He's confident about getting to Lincoln but said he's going to wander around Menards for awhile and let the Chicago traffic die down before he headed out.

Early night for me tonight, too. I seem to have a nerve pinching in my lower back. Making my hips ache. Just ready for Oreos and milk, then some Dr. Quinn while I"m curled up under the freshly washed afghan

I've been home sick from work today. Wasn't feeling the best yesterday at work, then during the night my stomach pain got worse. Today was dealing with the big D. So just stayed home. Sorted out the gifts and have them grouped for wrapping. Might start that tomorrow night. Each person is getting one box, but with more than one gift inside. Saves on wrapping that way. I used to love to wrap presents, but now it seems like such a chore. Gift bags will be used nexted year.

Anyone got a suggestions on how to wrap a tricycle??


I hope you feel much better now.


Tricycle .... I'd say a bike bag.

Now tonight I'm just coloring images, don't know if they'll be Christmas cards this year or maybe next. But the coloring does help to relax me too.

I purchased a video on coloring with Copics. It should be here this week. Figured I'd start with watching a video before I invest in the actual markers. Might be cheaper for me.


We've missed you, too. I hope we can hear from you more.


I LOVE my Copics.

Maggie thanks for for the link to find you here....I was going to PM both of you.

Sorry to hear of everyone being sick. I was down & out myself last week but am feeling much better. On the plus side, that gave me a chance to finish the Christmas quilt (finally!) that I made from the panel that Debby send last Christmas QSS. Now I'm working on quilting Libby's~ can you believe she will be 7 in a few months?


Glad you're feeling better and that you got your quilt done!

Wow! You're doing 3 holiday dinners! That's a lot. I think I'd do one and the others would be leftovers.

You will LOVE Copic markers. I've been using them for some time now and have invested in quite a few. I even went in November and took the Certification class. I can't wait for next year to take the advanced class.
the first holiday dinner is at my DDs on the 24th. I'm providing all the food because she did it all for Thanksgiving. So we are having ribeyes on the grill, some kind of potatoe, a vegetable, a salad and garlic bread. She is making the dessert.

the second holiday dinner is here for DH's daughters & families on the 26th. I am making barbeques; cheesy potatoes; coleslaw and a pumpkin dessert. So far none of them have offered to bring any food.

the third holiday dinner is here for my 3 brothers & families. I am making prime rib; baked potatoes; a baked corn casserole; 7 layer salad, rolls and pumpkin & banana cream pies.

DH picked the menu for the 26th. We only host every 4 yrs, but that dinner is for 14 this year.

The other two meals are starting to be a tradition. Last year for the dinner with my brothers & families, I had 16 people here. This is the only get together we have during the year unless we have a wedding or funeral in the family. So I guess that makes it special for them as well as for me. I haven't had any of them turn down the invitation yet. I think I will probably continue doing it for as long as I physically can. I know my Mom sure appreciates it.
