Beautiful ornaments Melody!

Forgot, Catherine ask about what I bough. I thought I did an post last nigh, must have gotten interrupted. I did get three colors in the Oxide sprays. Tree colors were all she had left. More coming. I also got the Mahogany oxide pad and refill. I found some Prisma watercolor pencils for 60% off. So did pretty good. Mi will hoard the rest of my credit for later.

The forecast was off by a couple of hours. It was to start here with freezing rain between 4-7 a.m. and it started about 9. Its not to amount to much. Then tomorrow we are to get some snow. They said 2-6" but the weatherman said he thinks it will be much on the lower side of that. Tuesday I go for a non-fasting blood draw. Its just so they can have blood on hand in the rare case I would need some during surgery Friday. After the blood draw, I'm meeting my demo friend to exchange gifts and have Chinese. There are five in our card class and we exchange names because it could get expensive, but she and I are besties so we get for each other and meet outside of class for that. Our card class for December has been postponed until January. Not because of my surgery, but because my other friend from class is at her brothers. He is on hospice and she isn't sure how long he has yet. One time they tell her probably two or three days, and then they say he could linger like this for a week or two.

I uploaded a few things yesterday. One was a group picture of my candy boxes. I made several different kinds but only took a picture of the types. I made several of each type. I have 26 filled and ready to hand out. I am NOT a procrastinator! LOL mailed my cards out last week, but haven't heard if any have arrived, except Lynn's! Still no word from Kandie but at least I know she knows we're thinking of her because I sent a card over a week ago.

The other two cards I uploaded were Christmas and I really don't need anymore! One was a technique called packing tape, but your diecut can't be wider than 2" or however wide your tape is. The other card was inspired by Cathy Zieleske on YouTube. I love how it turned out.

Good morning! It has warmed up here, it is almost 50 degrees! And rain is pouring from the sky. The forecast is for rain, rain, rain....Honey's "favorite" weather! But, obviously, we need the rain so it is good. But the snow is all gone now.

DD1 is at work this morning and then she is going to a concert at the college this afternoon. She has to go to two concerts this semester for her music appreciation class. So she is planning to attend today's concert and then the girls have picked out a concert next Sunday to attend as well. Next Sunday is DH's birthday so we are all going. Hopefully the customers are nicer today than they were on Friday!

DD2 had made plans for the family to go on an outing when DD1 got home from work. Obviously, that won't work now. I don't know yet if it will just be her and I who go or if DH will be able to go with us. He still has some projects he wanted to get done last week that aren't done.

Gracie, I hope your sale goes better today.

I guess we are fortunate that our super inexpensive pre-lit tree from Walmart still has working lights! I bought the tree with the white lights and the girls add colored lights to it too.

Beautiful Advent candles, Dagmar!

Sharon, yes, DD1 is working today. She has a couple more weeks of college and then a six week break between semesters during which, hopefully, she will be working a lot! I was sorry she had to work Thanksgiving day as well, but was glad it was early so she had most of the day with us.

Oxide sprays - or any sprays - sound like fun, Sharon. I don't have any sprays at all.

Kathy, I'm glad they are getting some blood from you ahead of time, just in case. That is excellent. Now I have to go check out your gallery!

Morning!

Dagmar, gorgeous bright red candles that scream holiday!! So pretty!

Catherine, my younger sons both worked in a restaurant and always worked Thanksgiving! They were always so tired by the time it was over they never enjoyed the holiday! Long hours and sweating like crazy is what they remember along with not nice patrons!

Tomorrow is throwing out left over day! Not Cyber Monday! LOL!

I like the sprays for inking but they sure are a mess to use, the inks go everywhere. I have the Dylusion Sprays.

For some reason, I thought you had already started a thread and that I had posted to it! But all I can find is last year's so that is probably what I had looked at before. I will get to work on one today.

I have to make my card too for the friends from SCS too!

Sharon, what gorgeous work you did and such amazing colors!

Karen, no worries it happens! Just let it in the thread! LOL! We all do this sometimes!

Ann, I think that's what happened. I followed the link and saw a card there so I figured I had done one. I never looked at the date! I'm going to work on mine now. I'm home awlone. DH is at the cabin until Thursday. DS2 just went to the cabin now too. He is only staying up a day or two depending on the weather.

Good afternoon all!

If we ever get a faux tree, I will make sure we do not get a pre lit one. That is really discouraging.

Sharon-great gifties.

Dagmar happy 1st Advent day to one and all.

We were married 29 years ago today on Dec. 1st. Going out for dinner tonight!

Ann, congrats on your skating tikes. Fun!

Victoria, sorry about your mil.

I am thinking about Kandie too!

I should make a card, too, since I don't plan on sending out a lot of cards this year.


Kathy, I got your lovely card. Thank you so much.

Happy anniversary, Shirl!

I have some ink sprays, but I also agree that they are messy to use. Hence, I rarely use them, and then the nozzle gets clogged from lack of use.

We've had snow coming down for a while, and it is now starting to stick. The prediction is for less than an inch.

Happy Anniversary to Shirl! Congratulations on 29 years!

I was going to work on addressing Christmas cards, but somehow started shopping online. Kohl’s, Amazon, & Shocker Nation. Got lots of good deals. I think our shopping is done, except gift cards. All being shipped to DDs. So don’t have to worry about carrying it on the plane. Now no cards done. But feels pretty good to have most of our shopping done.

Thanks Sharon and Ann and Melody! I should have been addressing some cards, but I got the FS one done today and another one too. So no cards were addressed today. Oh well!

Kathy, thank you for the pretty Christmas card! I got it Saturday! You and Ann are so on top of things! I'm impressed! I'll have to go check out your Gallery Kathy.

Our sale was much better today! I sold almost all my Christmas cards! Now, I'll have to get busy making more to send out this year!

Happy Anniversary Shirl!

Sharon, you sure have accomplished a lot, too! Great little post-it gifts.

Hi Catherine, Melody, Sis, Karen, Dagmar, Jayne and anyone else around tonight! Miss you Kandie.

Gracie, I wasn't sure if I'd feel up to getting cards done after surgery, so I got them done early! I'm imagining a lot of people who have received mine are secretly calling me an overachiever! LOL But I have to do it when I can or skip it, and I didn't want to skip it.

Proud to have you in my company, Kathy!! From one over achiever to another!! LOL!

Sometimes I send mine early just to irritate my family members! I am so bad!!

But the real reason is that December is way too busy with family gatherings, shopping, and taking care of grandkids! So I need to make sure things are all done for less stress!

Kathy and Ann, I think that's good planning on your part! Common sense...I'm always impressed when people plan ahead! I usually fly by the seat of my pants, but I've been trying to get better as I age! LOL

We got enough snow to make the trees look pretty, but its melting now. I cleaned my car off in case it would get cold. My back window defrost is broken so I like to keep it clean. I can see the problem, but I'm not sure I can fix it. The wire to it broke loose. I'll Google and see if I can fix it on my own.

Morning!

Bad night spouse was up with an upset stomach and of course is so loud that he woke me up too! Plus up twice for me to use the restroom so not a very good nights sleep.

Image that he wonders why he got a stomach ache when he had a piece of cheese cake that had to be at least four inches wide!!

Kathy, you are so handy! You will figure it out!

There is snow on the trees but the roads look clear this morning, however, the sirens have been going already today! Roads were slick last night!

We didn't get much snow and most of it has melted already. I cleaned off my car because the rear defrost doesn't work, but I just went on YouTube and saw how to fix it, so I'll pick up what I need tomorrow when I go out. There's an auto part store next door to my Chinese restaurant. How convenient! And all I need is a kit that shouldn't cost much. Its just a clean wipe and special epoxy that allows the electric charge to go through to the defrost wires.

I didn't think my previous message went through so my last message is a repeat of some info. My tablet throws fits and sometimes chrome just shuts down. So it did that after last message and when I went back in I didn't refresh and thought it didn't go.

Good morning! It has been raining, raining, raining here. Poor Honey! It is back to the grind for us today - DD2 back to school, DH and I back to work. DD1 is enjoying a rare day off from work but she has class later today, however, she is happy that is all she has!

Yesterday afternoon, DD2 and I went to a local small town with several goals in mind. We struck out on ALL of them! First, we went somewhere where she wanted to get hot chocolate because she saw someone else's post of their hot chocolate and it was beautiful. She insisted I get something too so I ordered a machiatto. My machiatto wasn't drinkable, she had her hot chocolate but didn't enjoy it, it wasn't sweet enough. Then we headed to a bookstore she wanted to go to and it was closed! We were also going to get crepes and that place, which is normally open, was closed because they are relocating! However, I did go to a craft store over there - do any of you have a Ben Franklin Crafts near you? I found a mouse pad for my Misti that they had on clearance for $3! Plus I now have a bottle of purple alcohol ink. This store actually sells the bottles individually which was fabulous. Our day wasn't successful, but we had fun together so it was successful in that way.

Wow, lots of chatter since I last posted, love it.


Ann, no leftovers to throw out. Our Thanksgiving leftovers were consumed so I had to cook yesterday. I made a vegan cream of broccoli soup and both girls pronounced it delicious. DD2, who doesn't even like soup, even had two bowls of it! The cream is provided by cashews. I did doctor the recipe, it only had salt and pepper as seasonings which seemed inadequate to me so I added other stuff.

Fabulous post-it notes, Sharon! And congrats on being mostly done with your shopping!

Happy, happy anniversary to you, Shirl! As for pre-lit trees, we have had amazing success with our cheap pre-lit tree from Walmart. The problem with it is that the "needles" keep falling off!

Melody and Ann, do you use a box when you are using your sprays? That is what I always see Jennifer McGuire do and it seems to contain the mess.

Gracie, I'm glad your sale went better yesterday! I used to be a pre-planner and get things done early, then I had DD1. That seemed to interrupt my organization skills! DD2 is like I used to be.

Kathy, thank you for the beautiful Christmas card I received. Love those plaid Christmas trees!

I'm amazed at your repair abilities, Kathy! I'm sure my DH wishes I was more like you in that!

Catherine, we had two Ben Franklin's but one closed. The other is more like a department store. It has a pharmacy and a framing section. Fabrics and general merchandise. It has hardly anything for card making or scrapbooking. It does have craft stuff, glues, foam sheets, stuff you'd use in other types of crafts. It also has a section with crafts and candles and logo stuff (like sports teams, tractor collectibles, etc).

Catherine, I have a box to use, which I do 'sometimes'. We used to have a bunch of Ben Franklins in the area. The only one I know is still in business is in Oconomowoc, about 20-30 minutes west. They are still a craft store.

Kathy, I am too, amazed at your abilities to fix things! Good luck with the repair.
Kathleen, it sounds like a wonderful day with your D2. What fun, just to be together, and find things or not. LOL we used to have a Ben Franklin in a small town I lived in over 20 years ago, and it went out of business while we were there. In fact at that time, it was the only place to get crafts. The only other place was a short lived (less than a year) scrapbook store. Back then we had to depend on SU! & Creative Memories parties for our paper craft needs.
BTW, Catherine, I try to remember to use a box when spraying.

Ok, just shoot me! I was making a three layer Christmas Layer Jello for tonight’s ladies Potluck at church. I was doing really good, went for a walk, came home to do the last layer. The first two were set up. So the third is strawberry jellos and whole cranberry sauce, real liquidy. I let it cool, I then spooned it on the other layers. So far so good. Pretty proud of myself, because really I don’t cook a lot anymore. Went to put it in the refrigerator. Right away, I realized , I should have asked for help. It was heavier than I expected , so it titled . I got it in without spilling the whole thing, but it was red jello down three shelves and on the floor. I got paper towels and a wet rag and began cleaning it up. I am not to good squatting down, but must have leaned or grabbed hold of shelf on the door. Don’t know how but one of the shelves on the door with about seven jars and bottles in it came down and they started to the floor. So I am hanging on to the shelf tilted dow with bottles headed towards the floor, and holler in to DH downstairs. I need help! By the time he got up here I had started taking the bottles out with my free hand, not the one holding the shelf. I put them on a shelf in refrigerator. He got here , took hold of the shelf. I then tried to get up out of my squatted position. And what a Red mess. I had to take out the two bottom bins to wash them. Mop the floor. I still have jello. So don’t know how the little amount I spilled could make such a mess! My excitement for the day, girls!

Ok, I'm confessing here. It was so much fun reading Sharon's post! Sharon, I have no trouble getting down, but getting up is hard! I can picture it all. You "painted" a good picture of it all! I hope that after all that work, you still have jello for the ladies!
