I hope that sounded nice to you all. When I went back and read it, I wasn't sure. I totally mean it as a compliment. I just meant that it's something you have to commit to making the projects for. Anyone here could do that.

Make sense?

I have already taken a dose of antiacid, so hope I am prepared. Yogurt helps sometimes. DH is on his way home and somehow I talked him into stopping at Cold Stone for me. I am soooo spoiled. He really didn't put up too much of a fuss, so he must want something in return...hmmm might have to flash him.

Kim, I hear ya about sitting on the computer in Feb. I will be too. I should finish my Christmas cards so I can start working on my swaps - for the SA swap and for regionals.

Hi! Checking if from Seattle, where it's cold, rainy, and I'm loving it having real weather for a change!

I've been checking all of the Elf gifts on your blogs, and they are all fantastic!! Great jobs, ladies! I'm almost as excited as all of you, and have been eagerly waiting to see the posts - the next 11 days are going to be fun! Next year, I'm definitely in!

Also the recipe swap - love that idea!

The babies are sleeping, Mommy is getting a haircut, and Daddy and Papa are taking naps, too. So I'm here "catching up".

And I just hopped over to the SU site and saw that there will be SU Regionals in Seattle in April - hooray! I will so be there!

Happy day, everyone!

We had snow today!! When it snows where we live everything goes out of whack!! I live on a mountain and so it snows for me and then you can go 1/2 a kilometre down and its rain. Well, its rain now!!

I opened my elf gift. I received little packages of metal dots, metal squares, layered flowers and coloured twill from Colorbok. This is so much fun!!

Hope everyone is safe and sound. Hope all went well today for you Jen!!

YEAH! Our 1st day of Christmas has finally arrived! I have enjoyed seeing/reading about everyone's gifts today. I agree, this was a great idea.

I got a pack of Old St. Nick RubOns for my Day One treat--off to a wonderful start. I was just about to order these to make some more tags, now I don't have to...thanks so much to my secret elf. Just so you know what I am doing with them, here is how I am using them, Thanks again!!

What Rhonda said! Great tags Angie.

Erin, sounds like the weather we are expecting tomorrow. Snow for Sunday too.

Chili was yummy and so far the reflux has been abated.

DH has to get up early tomorrow and is leaving me by 7:30a for church. Tomorrow is the Kids Christmas program and he is the sound tech. Rehearsal at 8 then back for the program by 4:30. I have a customer/friend coming at about 3ish to help her with some ornaments. Tomorrow was supposed to be my class and no one registered except her. It will be fun one on one.

It's been so fun to read back over the day's postings!

Erin, sorry about the snow. Keep warm

Crissy, surely your box will come tomorrow.

Angie, beautiful tags!

Pamela, glad you are enjoying the *weather*. Hope you're having a good time with family.

Lisa, have we seen your ornaments? Love to see a picture. Sounds fun.

Amy, what a 'llama' fun we're having here!!!!

Kim, go for that artisan award! Yes, you can do as well or better!

Hi Rhonda, Paula, Liz, Missy - I know I'm missing someone - SORRY!

Can't wait until tomorrow. I won't be able to post pics until the afternoon - we're tied up with choir practice for 2 choirs all morning.

p.s. got a letter from my son today. He is fine!!!!! He sent a SD card from his camera with movies of himself and other things. Fun to see it all.

Elf Day 2--Time to open another present, at least on the East Coast!!

I received a covered pack of Kleenex with an "A" on them and a covered box of Smarties Milk Chocolate candies. They were done in snowflakes--one of my all time favs! My elf took very good notes.

Can't wait to see your gifts from today. Everyone have a great Saturday, we're trying to get ready for Christmas at my house...our last weekend before the holidays without company.

SO cute Angie and Angie's elf!! Rich and gorgeous!

Today I won't be taking a picture..........You all know what a Regal Rose Ink Pad looks like don't you? WOOhootie!

Thanks so much Elfie O'Mine!!! (This also blows my ~shaken not stirred~ theory that I got a stamp set with each stamp in separate stamp cases....)

Have a great day ladies! I'm taking 6yo DD to play practice from 9-1 and to a Holiday Open House from 10-1.....Fingers crossed that I get more customers...I'm just having anyone interested make a gift tag using Christmas Cardinal.

Rhonda,
Good luck with Open House, here's many wishes for new customers today! And, who in this group could not use a new ink pad, that is a great elf gift!

Oh, play practice from 9-1, that sounds very interesting. I am the director of the play at church and I am ready to be done before my hour is over every Wednesday night. I hope the play is much more involved than ours, or we are really going to flop next Sunday! Back to typing the program for the play...

Sounds like another fun Elf day!!! My giftie is a cute tin filled with Candy Cane Kisses. I found these kisses last year for the first time and love them! Thanks to my Secret Elf. P.S. they are good in the peanut blossoms in lieu of the chocolate kisses/stars too.

Kathy, so glad you heard from your son directly!

Rhonda, Have fun at your Open House!

Paula, happy shopping at Ikea.

Angie , bless you for directing! That is one job that is NOT my gift. Here's praying it turns out wonderfully! My DH is at church today for ours. He is the sound tech. I am sure it will be an interesting day. Rehearsal this morning and performance at service tonight.

Kathy - here is a photo of the ornaments - super easy - just 6 scallops and a couple beads from the pretties kit - oh and the cording too. The pink/Bella Rose one I received at convention as a swap. Rie wants to make about 20 of them this afternoon.

Okay, so really - here are the photos...apparently I am a bit technically challenged this morning

The tree is copper wire all twisted up with green beaded leaves. It was a gift from one of our ministry partners in Zimbabwe.

Thanks Elfie for my gift today! such a cute coaster calendar!

It's fun seeing everyone's gifts today. so many fun, cute ideas!

today is wrapping and sending cards day. Tonight we are going out to dinner and then going to Naperville. They have a "settlement" camp there... it's from the 1800s and they have carolers and yummy cider and ice sculptures. I am excited to go.. especially since the temp is a little warmer here today than it has been.. almost 40 rather than 14 like yesterday!

we do have so many talented women.. we all should challenge ourselves to enter next year.. maybe just like we do our swaps.. finish so many projects a month until they are done and mailed! I tried last year, but couldnt' come up with WOW scrapbook pages.. scrapbooking is a challenge for me.

Paula- did you survive the night with 5 kids!

looks like Ellie and Jen are in ice huh? we haven't heard from them..I will think warm thoughts for them!

OK ladies! gotta go about my day! i'll check in later! have a great day all!

ps. my goodies for today are posted on my blog!

Morning everyone!! I received a package of red hot bookplates and love tiles from ki memories as my secret gift. My kids are keeping me in check so I don't spoil the process and open when I'm not suppose to.

The snow is all gone after a night of horrible hard icy rain. I woke up to a beautiful sunny day but they cancelled my DS soccer game. He is so sad!! He lives for his soccer and he already gave up Thursdays practice for his Christmas Concert.

I only have two of my kids today, the youngest two. My oldest DS is in Victoria for a swim meet (my youngest DD was suppose to go as well, but I think she is too young for such a travel meet) and my oldest DD is spending the weekend with my parents. They have the most wonderful relationship!! My parents live in the same city as myself and I feel extremely blessed to have them so close!!

I need to go a pick up some playmobil I have on hold at a store but I don't know how I am going to do it with my kids with me. I guess I'll take them out to lunch today. We also have a membership to the Vancouver Aquarium I could take them there but I have the most horrible sore throat right now.

Hey Liz - have fun in Naperville! That sounds delightful. A bit warmer here today too, but the wind is picking up and supposed to start raining, then snowing - super fun to have snow over ice!!! Glad I don't have to drive far and with no traffic.

Erin, hope your sore throat is just from the winter dry. Drink some hot water with lemon and honey and take extra C today. Have fun with the little ones today!

I love hearing about everone's elfie gifties! Fun, fun, fun!

My elf package arrived today! Yay! I made my DH unpack it so I couldn't see the outside, just in case. He thinks I'm crazy, but that is nothing new

It was worth the wait! My 1st gift is a scrapbook case! And she cleverly packaged all my gifts inside that. This is the perfect gift, I was totally going to buy one last weekend at the crop I went too, but thought I would wait until after Christmas for a sale, now I don't have to. My 2nd gift (for today) is a covered box of tic tacs! I will post a picture on my blog later.

Oh and she included a gift for my daughter, too! I'll post what that is later after DD gets back from her Mema's house.

Thanks Elfie!!! =-)

DH and I are making candy today. So far we have turtles, peppermint bark, chocolate covered pretzels and buckeyes (still need to cover them). I had peanut brittle, but I messed it up and have to do it again. Next I'm making oreo truffles and Mocha Truffles. Better get back to it. Talk to you all later!

Crissy, I'm so glad your box came! Mail this time of year is just wild. Happy Elfing!

I saw Ellie online last night--I think she was in the llama thread. So she must have power.

Haven't heard from Jen. Hope everything's ok!

One more thing...

I have a cramp in my hand from calendar writing. Each member of my family is colour coded. I am giving up for today, I only got some of January done. I need my hand for scrapbooking and its getting really bad (especially this time of year)

Yay! Crissy so glad to hear your gifties have arrived!

Amy, what a darling giftie!

Erin, sorry about you cramp. Take some Ibuprofen and make sure you keep your hand warm this time of year. I know mine get super cold even in the house.
