Well let me tell you....I was up till 2am yesterday making cards!! I made the card you see with the snowman....double pocket card, inserted a packet of cocoa in one of the pockets.....Thought Brendan would love it, and then I thought HOT CHOCOLATE in Punta Cana, DR where the temps are high 80s?!?.....so I had to search through all my printed digital images for something that was Christmas related, and better suited for Brendan....so down below is my completed card. It is being HAND delivered....just wish it was me doing the delivering!! Yes I have almost every digital image printed..I guess I am afraid I am going to lose my digital files, .....(so just in case, I print them)
Next thing on my agenda...Christmas Open House on Sunday. We have one every year, so I am not too stressed about it. I always make a scrapbook page, and have our guests sign the page ......... almost done.
Now if you look closely you will see approx 7 little c shape clips. They are kinda like bread bag closures. Well my husband had to remove lights off a prelit tree, and restring with new lights. The lights were attached by these little things....I figure there must be something I can use them for/on!! This is how I accumulate so much stuff!! Cheryl, I will never have a studio like yours...I keep everything....even thought I would never be able to find it when I need it!! Have a Great Day...

Happy Thanksgiving to all.....
Nothing too interesting on my desk....We had a crop last weekend. I made quickutz easel with 3rd Annual Fall Scrapbook Crop for table gifts. They are all ready to use on a scrapbook page. Our Christmas party is always the first Sunday in December....our theme is tropical Christmas, so my decorated palm tress are ready for my sign in page...hope to finish that in time!!
Christmas cards...... hmmm....well I was going to use the flamingo, isn't he cute....but I did just get this snow globe....but I just love some of the Sassy Cheryl images.....been eyeing the Snowman parts....Decisions, Decisions
I was hoping to have started on the color me challenge, but working retail when it this close to Black Friday....so much is on hold!! Oh yes....I am having Thanksgiving at my house.....first time EVER that my family was in town for Thanksgiving....
Whats up with the crazy people that are at the mall at 4:30 am? I am there because I have to be....... How many others are out and about that early?? Do you shop on Black Friday? Is it a tradition in your family?
It never was in my house, but it sure is in many. I have to leave extra early because the roads are so busy!
Have a great day, and a great day tomorrow......

The countdown to Christmas to me starts with the Christmas tree. We brought ours down from the attic this weekend, and of course once again a string of lights are out. Every year we re-string lights on our prelit tree!! This year my husband says, "I am not doing it again, I am buying a new tree"....."we need one taller anyway". I came home from work, the most beautiful tree is standing in our window....just waiting for me to fluff the branches, and trim the tree!!!! Thought I would have time Monday, as I was off...but no....How come days off go by so fast?? 39 days until Christmas.... ARE YOU READY?
Join the fun at Sassy Cheryl's Blog

Note- For those asking and wondering. It has been a month since Brendan left for Punta Cana, Dominican Republic... He is doing well, enjoying his new job.

AND Christmas cards they are still on my mind, and I have less time, as the days go by!! If I keep my flamingo dies along with Christmas paper on my desk....maybe I will get tired of looking at it and think up something!!
