Merry Christmas

We finally put up our tree on Christmas Eve. Thank goodness we were able to finish it before Noon! I was so happy. Last year, I didn't get it finished until the afternoon (and that meant that everything else I needed to do got pushed off as well).

So, here it is just after I finished:



And here it is later after the sun went down. Isn't it pretty?



What is amazing is that Dave and I had all our gifts wrapped and under the tree BEFORE 9 pm. That was a first too. We are usually up late and exhausted struggling to finish wrapping before we fall over snoring. (Although this morning as I was bringing down the present I couldn't wrap, I noticed that he forgot to wrap John's PJ's - they were still in the closet in a bag).

Now all that good stuff said about prepping for what happens this morning (if Dave ever wakes up!) doesn't mean I'm DONE....'Cause of course, I'm not. I still have some Christmas cards to make and mail (figured it didn't matter if I did them today sometime, since they were going to be late anyway) and I have some presents to finish. But I do see a little shimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe I'll finish before the end of my vacation (which will again also be a first).

After all the wrapping was done, I worked on Rita's gift. Dave picked up a gift card from Lowe's for her (she gutted the drywall in her house and is replacing it. She's been "constructing" for the past few years). It was not much, just a token. So, I decorated another box of chocolates and included that too.





I'm into these gift card holders this year, I guess. Easy-peasy (and pretty too)!

I got an email from UPS yesterday that my Brother received his presents in the mail. Hope he liked them.

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Spooky Eyeballs

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets

I created these this morning....just in time for making a few treats before the spooks come calling tomorrow night!
