Chirstmas Pennant Swap

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! We had a very nice Thanksgiving, my son Joey had Thanksgiving dinner at his house so all I had to do was make the scalloped corn, boy that was nice!! Landi left her boys here with us until Sun. so I was busy, busy, busy!!! They keep you on your toes from morning until night!! Fun to have around though, and poor Maddie today is lost without them, all she wants me to do is hold her! I did get my pennants done for the 2010 Christmas Pennant Swap on ATT and got them in the mail. Caidin & I were up early on Sat. morning so before Bridger woke up I got Caidin busy doing a project and I got them finished, I was getting a little worried I wouldn't get them done on time, whew!! So here is what I did with them, I didn't make any holes so that people can hang them the way they want. I wish I would have taken a picture of all 11 of them together!

So here is a pic of the little rug rats I watched all weekend, so cute!! And they made their grannie go out in freezing weather!!! Needless to say I didn't last very long!!
And they helped me decorate the tree, Bridger liked putting everything in one spot, I'm doing a little re-arranging today! lol
I'm also playing with this today the VAGABOND, I had a weak moment one night and ordered it. Another die cutting machine is really the last thing I needed!! But WOW am I ever glad I did, my goodness it cuts like butter and the machine is so quite, I'm in love!!! A great deal from Eclectic Paperie and they threw in a few goodies to boot!! Great place to order from!! Thank you Eclectic Paperie!!

Stormy weather her again today, internet connection keeps going in and out, it has taken me most of the day to post this! grrrrrr!!!!
Thanks everyone for all the nice comments!! Have a good one everyone!!

I haven't been able to participate in the challenges for a couple of weeks on Linda's blog
or on SSSS It's been super crazy here at home & at work and have had no time to be creative. So I took a little time last night and made this card using the Alcohol Ink Spatter technique which you need to get Tim's book A Compendium of Curiosities and find out how it is done.
It was a little more challenging then I thought it would be, after a couple of tries I called it good. And yes I stamped the post card crooked, no time to do over!!
I have been working on my pendants for the Christmas Pendant swap on ATT group when I get a chance, hope to have them done and in the mail next week and I'll post a picture. Here is my entry for both challenges...

Have a good one!

Shopping Spree/Halloween

No creative time for me lately!! grrrrr!! I feel so bad I wasn't able to take part in the challenges on CCC & SSSS last week, hopefully this week!! I did start working on my Christmas Banners for a banner swap on ATT group over the weekend, turning out pretty cool I will see if I can get a sneak peek out in the next few days. I had a super tough week last week, lot's of things going on so I headed out Sat. morning to the nearest LSS which is 70 miles away, hey when you need some retail therapy especially when you know they just got in a lot of Tim stuff ya gotta do what you gotta do!! lol Being I did have such a tough week, I went a little over board!! But it was so nice that they have finally gotten in some of Tim's stuff and I don't have to order it on line!! Plus after spending so much I got my punch card filled up so just had to go pick up something else and get $15.00 off, I chose Tim's Tag & Bookplates die cut, Woo Hoo!! Ahhh, some retail therapy does wonders, I had a much better weekend and hope this week goes better!! Here's a pic of my stash from my little shopping spree.....

I got the chance to go trick or treating with Landi & family again this year, super fun!! The boys are so cute!!

Caidin was a construction worker and Bridger was a monkey(which he is)!!

Pretty happy campers by the end of the night!!
Have a good one!
