Show Me # 3

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......

Sassy Cheryl Challenge # 38- Coundown to Christmas

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

I am thrilled, what a surprise when I received Cheryl's email. Thank you for choosing me to be the guest designer for the next month. Thank you my Sassy friends.. Janetlynne

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.
