good morning bloggy pals! Its sunday and I have soooo much I want to do today.. I need to unbury (is that a word???) myself in my craft room which has become the christmas storage room as well as the fact that I have crafting supplies out all over the place!
(day 1 from Barb burkard)
pictures for the first ornie swap borrowed from terri lightfoot
I've had to do christmas a little differently this year. as my family has gone from 6 to 13 and very soon to be 14 before the end of dec...( and 15 by next summer!) Yes.. all very exciting.. and I love every single one of my new family members.. but doing serious shopping for that many people is overwhelming.
(day 2 from Mary Zimany)
Not so hard once you know what to get them.. but getting it all figured out and organized is the tough part. but I do have it all under control now. and most of the shopping done. I have a few things left to get and a ton of gift cards to get.
(day 3 from Elizabeth Woodford)
So for now.. Im going to concentrate on getting my craft room back in shape.. wrapping gifts and working on some secret projects and making 5 more christmas stockings. where will I hang 13 stockings?! lol!
(day 4 from leslie brier)
and also on my list of things to do this week is BAKING!! woohoo! all though.. after last night i'm not so sure i'm in a hurry to be pigging out of cookies. ( I ate a lot of cookies last night! and I woke up with a cookie hangover! SERIOUSLY!)
(day 5 from Patti Gramza)
I wanted to share these pictures with you of an ornament exchange that I am in. We did the 13 days of christmas. I did not know most of these women but was invited in by my friend BArb Burkard... All I can say is Im so glad I joined. the ornaments these women made are so beautiful.
(day 6 from Martha Brown and day 7, my ornies)
Today is day 7 and they get to open my ornie. I'm not sure mine begins to compare with theirs. I hope they all like it! And Im so excited that there are 6 more days to open!!
I was in another ornament swap too, with nat, sandy,
heather and tammy. and again! wow.. how lucky I am to be part of these awesome swaps!!
(sandy camarda, heather speckled egg, tammy lucik and natalea kandefor)
I didnt get a picture of my ornie and to be honest I dont feel like taking a picture right now to post! lol! sorry..
Isnt the first picture of figgy adorable? hes so freaken funny. but they are not always so funny. I took this pic below this morning after I had to move a ton of stuff of the craft table, because they were insisting on sitting on everything and knocking stuff over. I kept scolding them and annoying the crap out of my husband! teehee! I guess I do have a tendency to be a bit annoying when it comes to talking to the cats, the bird and the BABY! haha!
Ok.. I really need to go get some groceries.. I just remembered that I told my kids I would make lasagna today.. you know they all come for dinner on sundays.. I love it.. but eiy yie yie! i have so many others things to do too. plus still on call and I have to do a homevisit this morning too..
I hope everyone has a delightful day! see yas later!
