I just realized that I sent a message yesterday or thought I had and then did not post reply.. O well the intention was good.. lol.
Having all my cards in the mail and my parcels sent makes me very happy
How is the weather at your house.. We are cold and parts are of Canada are in really cold.. My fav chair sits by a window and you can just feel the cold seeping in.. I still do not really hate the winter.... It has its own beauty.. it just gives us a few more challenges...
A big flock of geese just flew by my window so they are managing it just fine..lol.. Love watching the geese formations.
Well DD and GD are coming this aft to help me put up decorations so that should be fun
It is warm outside here. Well not exactly warm but not freezing cold. I went uptown but got tired out really quickly! Starting to feel more effects of the fall. I told you it takes two days sometimes before I feel it.
Morning ladies...i is back...the CAT started trying to wake me at 6am!!!!!!!! Had my physio...he pulled my arm out and put it back the right way again...yyyeeeahhh....right now feeling good. All my cards are mailed...all my parcels mailed...just gave the last of my gift card...all done...the little tree is done...the living room is decorated...I will need to ask if anyone wants me to bake...seems everyone is trying not to gain too much weight...Kerra had her trip to the pet store...and she got her loves....so all is right with the world
Oh Oh Oh I got a forest of deers from Dea!! YYYEEEAAAAHh I can frolic in the forest! woooo hooo.
Need to drink my water...also need to find my vit c drink...it is a tablet that dissolves in water..I have been taking it every day in a glass of water...I like it and hope it helps to ward off the winter yuckies!
I'm sleepy. Was awake early but stayed in bed until 8:30. Then friend called and needed help trying to make a 2x2box. I wrapped presents and made my ranch dip for tomorrow's card class. Just need to cut up the veggies. I hope the weather cooperates because we are having our Christmas party at class tomorrow and we get presents!!!
I'm going to bed soon too. I've been going through my favorites and I noticed a lot of cards had no comments. So I've been trying to comment on each card. After all, if I favorited it I really need to let them know why! I can't believe some of them had 0 comments
Hey guys, dont go to bed yet........ its only 730 here in Austin. I'm borrowing my grandsons tablet, and don't really know how to use all the punctuations.
Would you believe its been freezing here today? I will see if I can upload a photo.
I was rushing to get away and left my backpack on the couch at home. It had my laptop, my airplane reading book, my little blankie, and a sewing project. Now, what is there left for me to do? Shopping!
Taxes, Lynn, that is not due until March....March....March, please don't bring it on so quickly... We are heading to the US this morning, DH sold his amp on ebay and we are shipping it out, then we have a christmas party at the Christian Horizon House at 2:00, after that DH and I are going to see Frozen then out for Dinner then home to do some decorating.
Tomorrow we will finish decorating inside and outside, then I will pack as I am leaving for Chilliwack, BC on Monday for four days then to Edmonton for four days to see my son and my grand babies. I packed an entire suitcase with gifts. I think shipping would have been cheaper than the cost of taking them with me but I missed the shipping dates so they are coming with me....
Have a good day everyone, Lynn coodos on the steps, good on you for finding us Sharon, Kathy I really hope you are feeling better, Marion, congrats on getting everything wrapped and shipped, I am of course behind on the eight ball again. Kathy I love the idea of the alpha challenge.
Today is card class day and Christmas party day! It snowed overnight, but not a lot so as far as I know it's still on! My car needs de-iced. I swept the loose snow off, but there was freezing rain before that last night so I have to defrost a little before I leave around 11. I will post pictures later!
Card class day was awesome! My demo friend got me the magnetic plate for Christmas and I had to scramble to change my order since that was what I was going to get! LOL! We had a fun filled day. Was worried about the weather but thankfully we only got an inch and it was melted before I left.
Because of the holidays, and because our demo is busy during this time, we each designed three cards for class. We mostly CASE from SCS. I know the third card I show you is one I CASE'd I think from Julie Gearinger. Not sure where I saw the others, but they are not original ideas. Except for the silly gingerbread man. I made him. But you know, in some ways I think we CASE more than we realize because we may see a card we really like and then weeks go buy and we design something that may have just stuck in our heads from a while back. Here's a few from today.
I have composed a message three times today and was unable to upload it . So frustrating! I'm having a good time, but it is cold here in Austin. 27F. degrees this morning and it got up to 31F. degrees this afternoon. We've spent our time inside. I taught my 7 year old grandson how to make the paper snowflake ornament I made a couple of weeks ago and he caught on so quickly. This afternoon, he made one all by himself. I've almost finished a crocheted hat for my son's grlfriend. Started it yesterday!
Our Christmas canata is on the 15th too. Sounds like your grandson is enjoying grandma time!
Yes, he loves spending tme with me. The older boys are pretty independant.....they are 15 and 18 respecitvely. But I did spend some time with the oldest on the sewing machine. He wants to learn how to sew. He's talking about tailoring, but I don't think he has any idea hw hard that is going to be.
Kathy, I love your cards, thanks for the ideas. Hope everyone has a great day. I am off to Vancouver to give training, then I am stopping in Edmonton for four days to stay with the grand kids before Christmas. I will be back on the sixteenth. I will try and stop in when I have time.
Dea you sound like my daughter.. Flitting off and then back again.. She takes off to Toronto today and back on Tuesday.. I never know where she is.... Safe travel and fun with your family
I had one of those night where sleep was not on the agenda.. I was up and working on an art page at 2:30.. Sure did not want to get up.. I also have an event at the church today that I have to be at from 2 to 5.
still cold here.... as it seems to be all over.... Hope you all have a great day.
