How are those snowmen ornaments coming girls!? I cant wait to see them all!!! I know they will all be great! Has anyone had trouble connecting with their partners? let me know if you do. Hopefully everyone touched base and all is good..

I've been Oh so busy busy busy! I have so much going on in so many different directions!! eiy yie yie!!
I shopped today. which I shouldnt have done. But I needed to pick up some things. My oldest daughter Jennifer has a big recital tomorrow at Buff State. she is singing 9 pieces and is expecting a lot of people. She sings so beautifully! I'm actually quite excieted to go! She bought a beautiful cranberryish colored gown, which I havent seen her in yet.. she'll be beautious I'm sure! We're having a little reception afterwords, so I had to pick up the stuff for the punch and paper supplies. I ordered a sheet cake which I will pick up in the morning. Im hoping I will be able to post some of her recital as it will be video'd. If I can figure out how to do it again! I'll at least be able to post some pictures.
I also bought my other daughter some of her birthday presents today. she has her own apartment this year, so I bought her a pink christmas tree and some sweet ornaments to go on it. then, you know... I just had to buy myself some jeans,and i ended up with pjs booties and socks too!
I was supposed to get grocerys, but after being out all afternoon blowing money, I just didnt feel like it.. We dont really need anything right now anyways, just stuff for thanksgiving dinner , but i can do that monday.
I have my snowman ornament all done for Debra at hophopjingleboo! I hope she will like it! Its cute! I cant wait to send it to her!
oh yeah, the picture above is of a few of my elves and a shadow type box I made for them. I'm hoping that I eventually get some time to make a few more elves to sell. I usually sell quite a few at Christmas time, but this year I'm pretty backed up with the bears! Stay tuned, I will be posting pictures of the bears I've been working on in a couple days!
hey, the person who won my giftie on halloween, hasnt replied to me, I wonder if I should chose a new winner.. what do you think?

Viv,
How do you get so much done and host swaps and work full-time?
You are a whirlwind of activity.
I am getting your package out tomorrow. Long story about what happened on Friday but it involved buying my daughter a car.
So sorry the package did not go out as planned but tomorrow it is going to the post office.
I swear. Hand to my heart.
:) Bren
