Yesterday while I was at the hardware store, one of the clerks asked if I was doing my last minute shopping. Seriously who would say this is the time for last minute shopping? Last minute shopping would be… the day before Christmas Eve. So in my opinion, I have lots of time, I’m still in the list making stage. Sadly my children prefer their gifts not come from the thrift store. Don’t misunderstand, they are happy to have anything I find used that suits their fancy, they just think Christmas presents should be new, shiny, wrapped and under the Christmas tree. Great, now I will have to bite the bullet, and do my Santa Mom thing.
I would much rather be having fun with my friends, like last Sunday at Laurie’s cookie exchange. There were 30 different cookies competing for top awards, check out Laurie’s blog for lots of pictures of these amazing displays.
I made a couple of trips to Monticello, I made some Christmas necklaces, that I wanted to deliver.
I wanted to spruce up my space and get a few pictures of what other people had in their space.
Here is a shot of Diane and Donnas' space.
This is an adorable idea, wish I had thought of it…
You know I have all the buttons I would need for a few hundred of these. There is so much to see at this show. I will be taking more photo’s when I go this week. If you haven’t been to Monticello’s, the merchandise is constantly being restocked. So it is definitely not too late the show goes through December 27.
I also had a great time at Sheila’s this past week, when I was invited to make come over for a day of art.
Sheila had glass for a all of us to make a house.
Here is Lisa’s.
This one is Isabel’s
I decided to do a Christmas house. I found a piece of a journal that had 3 of our families birth dates. I used that page for the back and did a little cut and past to put in the other dates.
That was such a fun day, seems like we are always going to get together to do projects, but it takes someone willing to pull it together, to make it happen. Thank you Sheila for letting us make a wee little mess and have a wonderful time at your house.
But the time is over for fun and games, it is time for me to get going on that last minute shopping.
