(Thank you Linda Albrecht for the wonderful idea!)
Now onto the fun gift I made for my boss. You have to know that there is an actual "Grinch" club where I work, which makes the holidays a bit of fun. I was searching for a "Grinch" picture and found one where he was actually hanging on to his trusty dog (do you remember in the movie?). Then the brain cells started to work. I made him a gift card holder. I covered a thred spool for the base and found a scrap of a dial laying around for the pole. I glued that inside and printed the pic of the Grinch and attached. I used an office clip to hold the gift card. I used pipe cleaner for the bling. He loved it! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I wanted to also show you the wonderful Christmas cards that my friends sent me this year that are so worth me showing off! These girls are so talented and I want to thank them for the warm Holiday wishes.This one is from Michelle M.
and from Mimi
and Jill (my SU Demo)
and Chele (the card was tied so pretty that I was afraid that if I untied it I wouldn't get it back the same way - what a whimp I know!)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ All in all, the holidays could have been worse-right?. I DID have 12 days off work (#1 job)and accomplished nothing I had set on doing - like clean my scrap area(s)! My husband was sick, then generously gave it to me. And the house is a wreck again! (not surprised here!)
Now onto a new year...2009! An extremely BUSY year!! Can I go back, please?? This year is Confirmation, Prom, Graduation, Graduation Party, Soccer, Baseball, Basketball, Birthdays, Holidays, Vacations, school pictures (done), financial aid/college applications, (snap!) COLLEGE - How did this creep up on me so fast? EEE-Gaads..HELP!! I'd better get my day planner up to snuff real soon or disaster!
Well, it's late (I typed this ahead) and I'm coughing my head off...hopefully I will get to bed soon and stay asleep. Not to lucky the last couple of nights though.
Until tomorrow friends.....
