Happy Birthday to Audzi! And, a happy halloween for those still getting to celebrate. I know some are cancelling and some are delaying.

I'm sorry that a lot of your emails went into my spam yesterday. I really thought you were without power when I didn't hear from some of you....and, all along you were emailing as fast as you could. I'm so glad everyone is o.k. I'm sure some have some damage to clean up.
Reminds me of the tornadoes we have. We're always thankful when we have life and limb intact. I'm sure you are, too.

And, what an outstanding Queen she is! Kind of scary trying to case her. But, I do have my card uploaded. I want to case all of her cards!!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful, blessing-filled day today. Don't get lost in the crowds tomorrow...if you venture out at all. I intend to stay at home.

CONGRATS to Benzi and Quiltzi for making the Facebook page. How do you even find out about that as I don't visit on Facebook? Is that like not winning the lottery b/c you didn't buy a ticket kind of thing?

Also, congrats on the big winnings Perkzi and Quiltzi. Gotta play to win and I haven't had time to play much lately.

Hugs to my punchie pals. I'll be gone from 12/6 to 12/11, so I'll be behind and also trying to get holiday cards finished up and mailed out. I'll do my best to keep up with comments.

I lost the 6 lbs. I gained over Thanksgiving - Whew!

I found out when 1: I got a ton of comments really quickly and 2: Someone commented that they saw it on Facebook. So I had to go look.

SCS is a public site...you don't have to sign up to see it, so you can go to Facebook and just search for splitcoaststampers.

When she has put some of mine on there, I have gotten something like views in the 2-3,000's. Not Thanksgiving week, though. My poor little pumpkin suffered. LOL

Pamzi, you gained 6 lbs. and already lost it? Secret to that, please!!???
Big congrats to you.


Hope you have fun times on your trip. Don't worry about comments. It is very hard to keep up with that when you're away or when you return.

Well, we've left the land of abundant sunshine to head home for a taste of winter while we enjoy the Christmas season with our family. We arrived home late (very late actually) last night (well, it was really rather early this morning) and the difference in temperatures between Arizona and Alberta were immediately obvious to us. Truly a winter wonderland here - our truck has a foot-high white topping of snow on the roof. The next ten days will be a blur of preparation for Christmas - and I have to be ready by the 22nd - but we are so looking forward to spending these three weeks with family. Hugs to all. Sorry to have been so out of touch - somehow one day seems to blur into the next when we're in "snowbird" mode and next thing I know a month or more has zipped by. Hope all my Punchie Palz are all set for a blessed Christmas season. Hugz.

Izzy, so glad to see you return home to a big snow. How fun! Good luck getting everything ready for Christmas. I had just sat down to take a break from all my work. I left stamping for a bit (except for one card a week) but hope to be back before long. Story here: Benzi Stampz
I'm almost too exhausted to reply to you but I've been thinking about you this week and thinking you were still in warmer lands.

Have an awesome Christmas with your family.

You are missed!


Hugz,
Benz

Oh my!! I've never had the 'home renovation experience' but I've watched my sister go through it on a couple of occasions and I can only imagine what you are experiencing!! Hope you have it all behind you soon!! It has been a busy 'first day home' and I can tell the next three weeks are going to be a big blur. So much to do - so little time. But I am all set to enjoy it and it's so good to be at home (as much as we enjoy Arizona, it's not 'home') that even the fact that it's winter is enjoyable. I find it very hard to think 'Christmas' without the snow! Take care!

Well, I finished my christmas cards. My husband wrote in them last night and got them in the mail. Yea!

I've been sewing the past couple of days. Two of my granddaughters want Disney princess dress up dresses. One Snow White, One Merida. If I ever forget, will someone remind me to NEVER make Merida again!? THREE HOURS to make the sleeves! But I just have the hem to go. Then it's on to Snow White. I'm glad I did the hardest one first.

I got my Sweet n Sassy prize yesterday in the mail. Of course I had to add more than my prize into my shopping cart. I got two die sets and 4 stamp sets. Great fun coming up!

You all have a wonderful Christmas.

Quiltz, sounds like you've been busy, busy, busy. Cards and sewing - what were you thinking? LOL!

Oooh, a prize and, yep, gotta order MORE!

Hugs and Happy Holidays my fellow punches.

Speaking of granddaughters...I have a story for you.

Last year in oct and nov I had my out-of-town granddaughters with me several times and we went to their cousins' house to play. Of course the girls played dressup. So, the oldest of the bunch, who is NOT a girly-girl and had NEVER played dressup (horses are her game) all of a sudden wanted a dressup dress...Belle. Her little sister had plenty of dressup dresses, so I made big sister a Belle dress. Well, little sis was crushed. She wanted a dress too. In fact all day on Christmas, she wore her sister's dress.

So. I told little sis that I would be glad to make her a dress and asked which one she wanted. Snow White. Okay...Snow White it is...next Christmas.

Well, when I asked my daughter what was on their wish lists, she told me that little sis has said every day for the whole year that she wants/is getting/needs that Snow White dress. I even asked her the last time I was with her what was on her Christmas list. She told me I had promised her a Snow White dress.

Do you think I could NOT make that dress? Noooooo. So grandma sews.

Oh my gosh, you really had to make that Snow White dress. Sounds as if she is wanting it in the worst way. And, I see she didn't forget. It must have been a long year for her waiting on that dress. How happy she is going to be on Christmas day with her very special dress from Grandma.
Sew on, Diane...you're making great memories.

Just want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas!!!

This morning we are having all the kids and grandkids over for our family Christmas celebration. So that'll be fun! We made the decision a while back that the date didn't matter as much as having a time when everyone got together. Then we aren't forever in the struggle for "whose turn is it?" for Christmas.

We're having breakfast which is always fun to pull off when a bunch of us are gluten-free and some are dairy-free. I'm making some of those breakfast casseroles with hashbrowns and eggs and sausage...and CINNAMON ROLLS! Yum!

Then we'll have packages.

And I hope to be able to get some new family pictures. My pics on the wall are woefully out of date!

Have a wonderful day today and tomorrow! What are your plans?

Merry Christmas to my punchiez friends! I plan to do some cooking today, wrap a few more packages, and last minute details. Tomorrow, I will travel out of town to my sister's house. Then, back home at night when my son and family will be here. On Wednesday, my youngest son and family arrive late in the day. They decided to let their little one have Christmas at home this year and I fully understand that.

Diane, your day sounds fun. I wouldn't mind being there for breakfast today. Sounds delish!

Sue, I'm so happy for the wonderful blessing you have with Chris home and the your world so much brighter than last year. God has been good to you and your family.

I probably won't be around for another week or so after today so everyone have a blessed Christmas and New Year full of good health and happiness.

Signing off with a big HO, HO, HO

Hugz and Christmas wishes to all my punchie palz. We've had a wonderful weekend with our kids, most of whom have now headed home for more celebrations today (or to a shift at the fire hall). It has been rather cold here but at least the roads have been good for travel. When it gets cold enough, the snow doesn't stick to the roads as bad.... Off to spend the next couple of days at my parents' farm. They are moving from the farm into an apartment in town in the New Year so this will be a bittersweet time for all of us. As much as change is inevitable, it is sometimes difficult to process.

Perkzi - so glad that the experiences of last Christmas are behind you. Give Christopher an extra hug for me for being such a brave young lad through all of his experiences this past year!

Quiltzi - you must tell us about your DGD's reaction to her Snow White dress! Mmmm! Cinnamon rolls - my Mom always had fresh cinnamon rolls for us on Christmas morning. Somehow my tradition became fresh orange muffins and the kids still expect them!

Benzi - hope you've managed to clear the dust enough from your renovations to relax and enjoy the holidays. Safe travels.

Pamzi - Hugz to you - I've missed you too. Somehow there aren't enough hours in the day for cardmaking and commenting right now. I am slowly getting back at it. Broke my cuttlebug the morning before we flew home for the holidays. I've been promised a Big Shot as a belated Christmas gift (thought I'd wait til I'm back in AZ and have it shipped there so I don't have to haul it back to AZ with me on zee plane). Maybe I'll get back to making cards in zee New Year. No wedding to plan for this year! Hope all iz well with you.

Hugz and Christmas blessings to all of zee punchiez who drop by this thread. May 2013 be an amazing year for all of you.

Follow up on Snow White.

Little sis was wearing her Snow White ring when she got here on Christmas Eve. And she made sure everyone saw it. My daughter told me when they were leaving that she wore it so that it would match the dress when she got it. And she was planning on wearing it to church that night, too!

Well, I planned the package opening so that the "big gift" was last, and I'm not sure what was going through everyone's heads by that time, but I'm sure everyone was getting worried! Little sis has this "biting the cheek" look when she is really pleased. That's what she did when she opened her package. I didn't catch it in a picture. But when everyone bugged her to "let us see" she held it up and there was a sweet smile on her face. I did catch that one.
