Lots of chat today! Kandie, your ceiling sounds really cool! Hope you DH finished and is finally satisfied. I'd stay out of there too! LOL

Great little "kiss" trees, Catherine! Glad you got some lights up! I love Christmas lights! I'm a night owl too, but the last few years it seems that I don't stay up as late as I used to. Latest now is probably 1 a.m.

Dagmar, I'm glad your parties are over. It sounds like you had fun! Hope you had a good lunch with friends.

Ann, I'd send the dogs in to wake up my DH if he was sleeping in too long! But, then again, they'd probably just snuggle in and sleep too! LOL

I only have one card left to make for VSN. I've really enjoyed all the challenges. Now, I have to get all my Christmas cards written in and sent out! Every year, I say I'm going to be on top of my Christmas cards...maybe next year!

Hi Kathy, Melody, Sis, Sharon, Jayne, Shirl, Shelly and Linda! Hope everyone has a good evening or day!

I must not have uploaded my kiss trees, Catherine. Can't find them in my gallery.

Gracie, I don't stay up that late, but only because I have to get up and get to work. 1 am is usually my latest but I try to be to bed by midnight...preferably by 11:30 though, right now, I hardly ever make that!

Kathy, I went to your gallery to look for them and saw you had 28 pages! But I didn't find them either. I also did a search for Hershey kiss in the gallery in general - then I found that Qbee has posted on here too.

I made a bunch of them but it may have been two or three years ago. Time flies. I put each one of mine in clear plastic bags and tied the tops closed with pretty plaid ribbon. I follow Qbee on YouTube. She does a lot of things with kisses. She even revamped her tutorial on the trees. Her name is Brenda Quinta and she's from Boston. She also a SU demonstrator.

Happy Wednesday everyone....quick hello. Gosh a lot of chat and I had to quickly skim it as i'm on a mission to go and check out some of your cards and leave some love if I can. I shall have to chat and catch up after Xmas now I think. I'm supposed to be going through boxes LOL...anything for a distraction whilst hubby is at golf.

I have been thinking of you all....Sis Vicki, I have been thinking of you and your family and hope everything goes as well as can be expected. Kathy, hope you are still healing well, Gracie, I hope that your driveway is finished (gosh that was a couple of weeks ago now I think), Ann I hope that your son is better and you are still enjoying your poppets, Kandie I hope that you are going ok and back into renovating your home. Catherine I hope that you and your family are well. Sharon I'm sure that you are still creating lots and I hope to be back on the scrapbook thread next year. To Shirl, Shelly, Dagmar, Melody and anyone else I've missed, I hope you are all ok and having fun.


We haven't done a lot of decluttering/cleaning inside the past few days as the poppets came for the day and we were stuffed LOL. Yesterday we cleaned all of the outside deck and windows so all is spick and span for xmas. Hubby sprayed for spiders this morning before he headed out. Tomorrow we are back into it but have agreed that it won't all be done by Xmas. I'm ok with that as we are close to the finish line....well except my craft room LOL. It shall all be finished after next week and I can create again...well that's the plan unless hubby finds something else for me to do LOL. I feel I have reclaimed my home again.

Hugs to you all. Now I will go and see what beauties you have all been creating.

Jayne, I'm tired just reading about all that cleaning and organizing!

My plan tomorrow is to go get bloodwork at my doctors office and then to the church to drop off little box presents I made. I haven't been to SS in weeks and I'm dogsitting this week so won't be able to go again.

Now you know how I feel LOL. Sorry...I will try and chat about something else next time

The good news is that I did manage to catch up on the alpha cards...some beauties...you ladies have all been busy.

Happy dog sitting although I know that you will be glad when it's over as it doesn't agree with you. Enjoy your day and I hope that it's not too cold over there.

Now I have to get off this site and .............. Take care and hugs

Kathy you will be pleased to know that I opted to make Xmas tags...very simple ones which didn't need me to use my craft table that doesn't have a spare space LOL. I'm also about to go and make some gift voucher envelopes if I can find things.

To bring you up to date....after our holiday and after recovering from our bugs on return, we have done other things LOL. We had a day out in our winery area and had lunch at one of the new wineries with friends. It was one of the longest lunches we have had for a while and was wonderful. We've also been going to the poppets swimming and having them over for play days once per week. We play boche with them or when it's very hot we have water hose fights. On days such as those I wish we had a pool.

I've also had my craft Xmas lunch/get together which was fun. We do a secret santa and my wish this year was for something consumable...I ended up with wine and choccie....perfect LOL. We have also been to a couple of December birthday parties and out with friends for coffee. I've only played golf a couple of times due to the weather but we did go to our end of season Xmas dinner which we organise. That was fun. No more golf now for me until January. I'm enjoying the break.

Hubby has ordered a new car and we were hoping it would have arrived by now but no such luck so we are still sharing. We still haven't been to look for a new couch and that will be on the cards in the New Year. I figured I've waited this long so a few more weeks or months won't hurt LOL. Son3 will take our old couches.

The weather has cooled down slightly and is only 33 degrees today...perfect but muggy. The fires burning north of us seem to be under control...thank goodness. For 5 days the fire fighters fought them...they are amazing. Not sure what the weather forecast is for Xmas but hopefully not in the 40s again.

The kids and poppets are coming to us Xmas day for dinner. Hubby, son3 and myself will have champers and brekkie together, then chill until the rest arrive for dinner. We are having seafood platter, ham and turkey and veggies/salads, plus sticky date puds and trifle, followed by cheese/biccies and choccies for dessert. All washed down with some very nice champers and Aussie wines LOL. DILs will bring either a salad or dessert. We play board games afterwards...it's such a fun day/evening.

On Boxing Day we used to have Open Home and friends/family would pop in all day long. Some years we have had over 30 people and it used to be great fun and a way to eat all the leftovers LOL, plus everyone would bring something. I'd like to resurrect that tradition but hubby doesn't feel up to it this year and we now don't have the space that we had at our old home. We've also had separate groups of friends come for drinks/nibbles over the festive period but again we don't have plans for that as yet. I think we will just take each day as it comes. I quite like spontaneity these days.

We've also both had a few Drs appointments and I ended up having an MRI last week. Thankfully the results came back good except my sinus. I'm now on further treatment and if this doesn't work then I will need to go back to see the ENT specialist. So far I'm feeling much better although the weather is cooler and maybe that is helping. At least I can breathe again...yay.

The poppets finish school tomorrow for summer holidays until February. That means we will be babysitting more and throughout the week, although they are going on a family holiday in January. I'm also wishing that we were going somewhere....which we are in January but still in our State LOL. My sister and BIL are on a cruise in Asia after Xmas and so close to this region. I so wish we could jump on a plane and surprise her at one of her ports but I know it's such a lot of money and a crazy idea. I miss my siblings and family in the UK at this time of year.

What do you do for Xmas....is it like Thanksgiving...Turkey, etc and family get togethers?

I've got my Xmas carols playing.....it's beginning to look a lot like Xmas.....sing it Mr Bubble.....byeeeee

I'm not doing another big meal so that means a ham for sandwiches and pasta salad. DH will make a stop at KFC for coleslaw. We love theirs.

Here's a card I made at my recent craft Xmas get together. I didn't get chance to send cards to everyone this year, but know that those who didn't receive a card are thought of kindly. I wish you and your family and friends a Merry Xmas and a very healthy and happy 2020. May this festive period be a happy and safe one for you all.


Merry Xmas SCS Friends by Ozpom - at Splitcoaststampers

I imagine with Thanksgiving being so close to Xmas that it is hard to cook a big meal all over again. We don't have Thanksgiving here so I guess it's one of the few times we do cook a big meal and all get together.

Good morning, ladies.

Shirley, I received your lovely card, thank you!

Jayne, your posted card is so beautiful, thank you for all the good wishes!

Catherine, those Kiss trees are adorable!

DH finally is done with the bathroom. He has a few flaws he wants to fix (no bows, Washi tape or ribbon!). I think he might use a white silicone to smooth over some rough cuts. It won’t show. Here is a photo with the ceiling, and the barn door he put on the bathroom to open it up a bit because it is so small.

We are, for the first time, going to the middle son’s house for Christmas. I think I already mentioned that. DH’s youngest son, age 52, called and raised @#$& last night, saying he had been coming for Christmas dinner here his entire life. DH said that at age 75 he was getting tired of all the hassle and was looking forward to someone else carrying on the tradition. That son is always a bit of a troublemaker. We are still looking forward to it, and hopefully, to leftovers to take home!

A funny for today.

Good morning! Jayne, it is interesting to hear what all you have been doing. I do hope your get over this sinus infection soon. I look forward to you scrapping again.

Kandie, your bathroom looks great. The two of you are so good at decorating and DIY projects. It is good to see you at it again.

Ann, I don’t know if I will get back to crafting or not until after the holidays. I am giving myself permission to not finish VSN, and to do the Alpha Challenges later. I just seem to be so distracted right now!

Catherine, my 42” tv story is similar to the shelf stuck in the back seat story, only, we didn’t tear it apart to get it out! We did take hours figuring it out though. I swear the guy at Walmart just slid that huge box into the backseat. But when we got home, there was no “sliding it out”! We just about got a divorce over the whole thing. We were laughing so hard towards the end, that we wondered what our neighbors were thinking. They were probably watching this circus! I mean this went on for what seemed like hours. We would go in the house and take a break. Finally , what we did was take the box apart, and then without the box, we were able to slide this huge flat screen tv out of the back seat! We still remember and talk about this. In fact the other day, DH said if we ever buy another tv, we will have it delivered and installed!

Everyone have a great day!

I remember Kathy’s backseat story now!!!

Sharon, I can identify with your TV story as well. How about a small, new SUV, and the purchase of a used white wicker front porch chair, and a salesman shoving the chair in the backseat and then me not being able to get it out because the legs were jammed in! I finally got it out, with several pieces of broken wicker left in the backseat and white marks left on the leather of the back doors!!! Grrrrrr

Today is bill-paying day, so DH and I are sitting here tearing envelopes open and grumbling. :}

Kandie, I was just sitting here tearing envelopes open, but mine weren't bills. I stopped by the church and picked up my mail from the mailbox there, and I filled a few boxes with treats because I knew I couldn't go this week again. I had 24 cards! One was handmade, and two were photo pictures. The rest were store bought, and boy they are making pretty ones this year!

I got my lab work done this morning since I already had my deductible met for this year. My appt. For the doc was originally this month but they moved it to January. They said I could still get my labs done this month.

Funny grilled chicken, Kandie! And Sharon why do we think of the obvious (taking it out of the box) after trying so many other ways? Last night DH said the ties on his slippers keep coming untied. I said cut them off, they are only for decoration! He says "oh! I guess you're right!"

Kathy you were up late chatting with Jayne! And, you got up early to get the labs done...or maybe you were still up! I think you'll need a nap today!

Jayne, it sounds like you've been busy since you got back from New Zealand! It sure sounds like it's been very hot over there! It sounds like you have a wonderful Christmas day planned. I have so many good memories of family Christmases. We'll probably spend Christmas with my daughter, as the rest of the family is back in freezing cold Wisconsin...the opposite of your weather!

Sharon, I love stories like trying to get your TV out! LOL I've moved so many times in my life that I have many stories like that! It reminds me of the old videos of people trying to cram into a phone booth to see how many people they could get in there! LOL

Kandie, bills...yuck! I love your bathroom! We are going to put a barn door on our bathroom back in Wisconsin, too! The ceiling is beautiful!

Hi to everyone! I really need to get to work on writing and sending out Christmas cards today! LOL I did finish VSN and have those cards to send now too! Yay!

Good morning from wet, windy Northern California. Yes, the rain has returned and, unfortunately, brought strong wind with it. I don't mind rain like Honey does, but I don't like wind!

DD2 has her first final today. Thankfully, it is only one and DD1 is off work today so she can pick her up from school. Tomorrow will be her hard day with three finals. She is excited though, because her best friend comes home on Saturday.

Sharon, this is the first year that I have been there when passing out the goodies we made for the teachers and staff and it was fun to see their happy reactions.

Kathy, those single kiss trees are so cute. I don't have that punch though.

Jayne, I made a big Thanksgiving dinner for the four of us for Thanksgiving. We didn't go up to Idaho to my brother's because DD1 worked Thanksgiving morning but my brothers sent me a siblings photo - the two of them with a street sign for a street with the wonderful name of Sister Catherine! Cracked me up. Anyway, I would make another big meal for us but we are going to my brother's house that is about five minutes away from our house and my SIL is cooking. I need to figure out what I can take. They are tricky to cook for, my SIL is vegan which isn't hard for me as DH is vegan now too. However, they don't like onions and I put onions in almost everything I make!

Kandie, the ceiling looks fabulous! And a barn door is marvelous. DD1 loves barn doors!

Love the grilled chicken funny!

Seriously?! His youngest son complained about not coming to your house for Christmas?! He doesn't realize his dad's age and how much work it is? Maybe he should host it so he can see how much work it is.

Sharon, with the new building of the church, we received a huge order of stacking chairs. There were a few that were damaged so they sent replacements. I can't remember what happened to mess up the delivery of them but, concerned that they would return them, I had them delivered to a nearby Walgreens. There were four BIG boxes of stacked chairs. I have a Camry and there wasn't anyone else to help me get the boxes from Walgreens to the church. I made four trips and just barely fit the boxes into the back seat. Sometimes it was almost impossible to get the boxes back out...thankfully, I succeeded. What "fun"!

I'm glad you got your TV out of the back seat in one piece and yes, I think delivery is an excellent idea for the next one!

Kandie, that would so frustrating with damage to the wicker and leaving white on your leather too.

Yay, Kathy, for happy mail! Did you see NCIS last night?

I'd better get going with getting ready for work.

Hi Gracie! We posted at the same time. Cracking the whip, get to work Gracie!

Oh yeah, Jayne, 33 sounds too hot to me still since I just had Google do the conversion for me!

Count me as another who loves Kandies bathroom!

Catherine, I don't have the punch either, but I do have the pine tree dies and one of those trees is about the same size. If I really need the punch for something, one of my friends has it.

Yes, I saw ncis last night. I kept thinking maybe tony wasn't Tali's father but then realized that she probably already had Tali before she met Adam. I don't understand why Tony and Tali still have to hide now that Sahar is dead. I think Gibbs now has a "son!" I did not see that coming! I thought the woman who rented the cottage to Ziva was SAhar.

Kathy, I thought that too! For once NCIS writers surprised me! Never thought it would be Gibbs neighbor. I just thought that was a side story!

And I can’t remember if I said it, but, Kandie your bathroom is beautiful!


Oh, the rest of the story, DH and I carrying the tv down to the basement family room! Ha ha! Glad we had movers to move our tv when we moved!

We have a blizzard going through at the moment. I don't think its to amount to anything. I just took a sympathy card down to the mailbox before this hit. Glad I didn't wait any longer.

Kathy, hope the weather doesn't get too bad! Stay inside! When SU had a one day Free S & H sale, I had to buy the stars die and stamp set because I loved your Christmas card! Enabler! LOL I also ordered my sister something for Christmas.

Lots of chatter today!! I've caught up!!

Love the bathroom Kandie!

Get to work, Gracie!

Slow down, Jayne!

Catherine, enjoy the rain! Winds not so much!

Sharon, do challenges as you can and don't overdo it!

As I am one to talk! I stayed up till 1:00 A.M. uploading! And still had a few more this morning! Got all the VSN done and combined them with lots of other challenges!

Still missing, I think, two challenges from the past weeks but not worried about it!

Off to bake again and stamp some tags for my son's elf boxes!

Its about time I became an enabler instead of one of the enabled! LOL. I love that set! The blizzard didn't last, but DS1 called and was telling me route 80 was closed due to a 22 car pile up! He said he hadn't run into much but at one point it was a total white out for a minute or two. He drives truck, so he is used to just about anything, but I still pray for his safety on the roads!

Ann, I can’t believe how quickly you got VSN cards done and you just started!
Well, I did do a two page layout for our scrap challenges, and it fit Melissa’s VSN challenge, but I had already had done a card for hers. It I put it in the VSN gallery.
I even baked Pistachio cookies. I made up 5 sacks for tomorrow with goodies to take with me, on my appointments and errands. So, I did something today. I used two new tools, my Stamp’n Easel, and my letter guides. Love both!


I am sure your son will get home safely, Kathy. Prayers sent up.

LOL Shirl! It was a good deal to get the stamps and dies together! They are so beautiful! I can see using it for scrapbooking too!

Thanks Sharon for all the comments on my VSN cards! I loved your scrapbook pages!

Ann is amazing! All you do and then you get VSN cards made, too! WOW!

Kathy, I'm going to check the tutorial out.

Busy, busy day and lots of chatter on here.

Kathy and Sharon, I wasn't surprised that his neighbor was Zahar or however you spell her name. I thought it quite poetic that Gibbs and Ziva came full circle where he saved her life as she saved his.

Yay, Gracie, the whip cracking helped! LOL

Sharon, that stamp 'n easel looks like a wonderful tool. I'm sure you'll get a lot of use from it.

Kathy, the tutorial looks like fun. Your ornaments are lovely!

DH is coming home late tonight, he has practice at church first. Hmm, I think I need to go find something to eat, I'm hungry!

The Masked Singer finale was on tonight. Spoiler alert.....The fox was Wayne Brady! That man is so talented. Singer, dancer, talk show host, game show host, comedian! And now the winner of the masked singer. Two of the panelists guessed him, and I agreed, but I wouldn't have guessed him u til his name was suggested, so I'm not claiming that winning guess. And for the runner up....the Rottweiler was Chris Daughtry! None of the panel guessed him. I did, but again, only after someone I know suggested him. Then I could see him in my minds eye! The only one I guessed on my own this season was Lela Ali. Daughter of Mohammad Ali. The new season is set for after the super bowl. I can't believe they are doing another one so soon. Oh, I forgot I guessed Johnny Weir right too! I would never have guessed Dr. Drew! LOL

I've never watched that show, Kathy, but I completely agree that Wayne Brady is super talented!
