As my "deadline" quickly approaches, my lists get bossier?!

Wow... What a productive few weeks I have had! It was seriously looking extremely doubtful that I would meet my December 10th Deadline - especially since I hadn't purchased ONE thing as of Thanksgiving Day!? Well - we got a good chunk of it done on Black Friday, and I have managed to chip away at the rest of the list since then! I give MUCH of the credit to Tracy - from the Sisserhood! She came up with a Thread on our Team Page for our daily To Do Lists... while the lists HAVE been really Bossy with me - I have been lovin' the productivity! (Thanks Tracy!)

I am done with the buying part, but am not quite done with the making part... (and I still have a little of the wrapping part to finish up!) Here is a peek at what I have been doing (altered notebooks. journals, address books, and frames):

This is my neices' favorite Quilt:

...and this is the Dry Erase Board I made her:

I'm pretty happy with it! The Dry Erase pens are attached using velcro! So fun! I also made Digital Scrapbooked Calendars for my side of the extended family... here are a few samples of that:

I was asked to take a few portraits for a friend and decided that since I would be out and about anyway - I was going to make my little family come with me and bring along my tripod and timer/remote... unfortunately - this plan all transpired on Sunday after church... gorgeous blue skies - but wow?! FaREEZING cold wind - and lots OF IT!? Still - I managed to get several great shots of our friends for them - and we got quite a few Family Portraits of our own! We don't even really look THAT cold in most of them! Here are a few of our fav's:

Yeah - see?! There is that -3 degree Wind Chill... and THIS was our last shot!

Oh yeah - turns out those size 12 Levi's were not just a fluke... I bought those grey skinny jeans on Saturday - and they are a size 12 too! So - yay me! I also bought the outfit Dave is wearing for his birthday on Saturday - and then realized how well it would match for family portraits - so I gave them to him early... and Kayelyn got new digs as well - but managed to rip those jeans when she hoped down after that last shot! Sad day!

Anyway, I seem to be right on track... I am working on a few more items and then planning on wrapping it all up tonight! I do have a couple of birthday gifts to pick up for my Honey (since I accidentally GAVE them all to him on Saturday?!) - his b'day is the day after Christmas - so I will do that tomorrow and will be officially DONE done ~ ...all by December 10th!

(UPDATE - I am DONE done! It's true! I made it! Whew?!)

So - how are you all doing?! What are you working on? DO share!
