Merry Christmas

My days have been full of preparations for Christmas and time spent with friends and family. My prayer for each of you is that you and your family have a blessed Christmas and that you enjoy the warmth of love and friendship.

Sneak Peek

My DH gave me a wireless router for Christmas and one of the tests was to see if I could connect to the internet in my CP (Craft Palace). These pictures are a testimony that I can. I am a very happy camper now because I won't have to take things back and forth when I want to share with all of you.

I must say here and now, that I have the most wonderful husband in the world. We have been married for 42 years and he is always surprising me in small and big ways. He lets me know each day that he loves me. And he spoils me very, very often.

Now for some sneak peeks from the new Occasions Mini and SAB. My friend Terry came over the other night and we created into the wee hours. Here are some of the results of my efforts.

Christmas SAS part 2

These are the rest of the cards I made for the SAS. They are resting on the cute little Christmas mouse I found at our local hospital gift shop.

Although it doesn't show clearly in the picture, I sponged some ink around the edges of the silver glimmer circle to add a bit more zing to the card.

Christmas SAS

Todays offerings are from a Christmas SAS I prepared for. My back went out on the day of the event so we made these on Monday night at our monthly Club. We had a nice evening and Kathy had lots of Christmas treats for us to enjoy. 
Our group has been together for over 2 years and it is led by my up-line, Kim Becker. We always enjoy our time together.

Demo Christmas Gift

This picture shows the three finished balls surrounded by light green tulle on a silver charger.  

These next two pictures show how I wrapped the gift for presentation. I used some of the pink tulle I had used in the pink ball to wrap around the charger. The idea being the person who received the gift could use the pink or the green tulle under the balls to change the appearance. I think these colors will work for Christmas, Valentines Day, and Easter.

Christmas Gift Sneak Peek

Tomorrow is our demo meeting Christmas Party and each year we have an exchange. Today I thought I would share a couple of sneak peeks of the gift I will be taking.

I am still working on one more which is smaller. After tomorrow I will show you the entire gift, but I want to tease you just a bit today. TFL.

Another day in my life

I was at WalMart buying a bag of Purina dog chow for my dogs , in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Why else would I be buying dog chow, RIGHT ??? So on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again, and that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in intensive care, with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms. I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and all you do is load your pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care, because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle's butt and a car hit me. I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. Now that you've read it I have to confess, I copied it from someone else.. share and make someone else smile today :)

Here's your sign.

I don't normally share stories like this on my blog....however, I am laughing so hard that tears are rolling down my cheeks and my sides hurt. I know this time of year is filled with fun and laughter for most, but it can also have it's struggles too. So I thought I would share it in hopes it makes you laugh and brightens your day.

Cheers!!! Michelle
