Good Morning America!!
Gosh it's been a long time since I have said that!! But I feel pretty good as I have gotten a lot accomplished since I last posted. I think I have completed all my Christmas shopping, but won't know for sure until I have my gifts wrapped (that is a whole story all by itself). Picked up Avery Labels so I can address my cards, but still have to create them (LOL -- saving the best to last). Got up and made cookies this morning, then made a Christmas cookie plate with my Decor Elements (if you remember, I already posted 3 of these I made this year but somehow those disappeared when my daughters and grand-daughter where here). Then, I put together my stuff for Ronda Wade's RubberQueen shoebox swap tonight and created a paper sack pocket pouch for a gift (and that is a whole story of its own too, but suffice it to say I hope my next 4 pocket pouches will turn out better in the sewing department).
Even tho I did a crapy job, I'm going to show you what they look like. I do like my swap card, but would have liked it better if I would have done more with it. However, after my 1st shoebox swap, I was instructed to KISS (keep it simple stupid -- I think that is what it stands for???). Do you have any idea how hard it is to keep something simple -- I bet most of you have this same problem. Anyway, here they are:
Okay, now if I hurry and clean up my mess I will still have time to take a short nap!!! My reward for staying focused this morning.
Until next time,
