Birdies, a Prize, a Circle Cutter, & a Promise!
Ah yes... even the title seems cluttered and random, I know?!
However, December 10th looms large and I am trying to schedule my time so I am not stressed out as I wrap up (pardon the pun) the rest of my Christmas To-Do list! LOL!?
So - on Tuesday, while Kaye had Dance Team (Drill) practice, I enjoyed a little down time at Bella Scrapbooking partaking in Julie's fun Creative Cafe project of the day... Who doesn't love these adorable Birdies?!
So fun!!! (Of course, you know me... I had to tweak it just a little to make it mine!)
I did manage to get all my letters copied, cards stuffed and stamped, and everything is mailed off and on it's way... I got most of the shopping done and a few of the stocking stuffers bought... I have wrapped everything so far and they are under the tree or around the manger... (I haven't wrapped any of Kaye's yet because, well - that just seems mean?!) Of course, I guess seeing all the gifts out and not seeing any for her may be meaner?! (more mean?! I don't know?!) As I got home yesterday and collapsed from a full day of meetings and errands and marking things off that super bossy list of mine, I logged on and found that I have won a prize of some osrt at Bella's... so I guess I am 'required' to go back to the store soon and find out what I won! Yay! I love prizes!
I have recently been blessed with a new client. He is wanting me to get this album done before Christmas and it is an awesome project! It is a Heritage Album that goes back 5 generations... he has excerpts from actual diaries written by his great, great, (great) grandparents... as well as some excellent photographs! The thing is - each main 'branch if you will, features a great old photograph and most of them, since they are old - are oval. I have finally (after all these 13 years of scrapping) come upon a need for an oval/circle cutter?! I am sure someone will have one for me to borrow... because, really - if I have made it this long?! Do I really need one afterall!?
Lastly - in the midst of all the flooding that is going on in WA and OR... I looked out my front door the other day and this is what I saw:
Pretty cool, huh!? Gotta Loves God's Promises... the Bible says that they are Yes and Amen!
