I can not believe tomorrow is Friday already. Time sure is flying by lately. Christmas is SO close. I can't believe how fast it came this year.
I'd been putting off a lot of my shopping cause I was hoping some things would go on sale, then I realized how close it was. The kids only have this next coming week and then they are off. I can't do any shopping after that. Also, there will be people out of work and stuff and just too many people in the stores and I refuse to shop then for that reason. I much prefer to go early in the morning when everyone is at work and shop in peace and quiet:)
So, this past Tuesday I went and pretty much knocked it all out with the exception of a few things I'll be getting this next coming week and I am DONE. It's funny how even though I spent quite a bit of $$$, I only came home with two small bags. It seems the smaller the gift, the bigger the price tag:(
Yesterday I mailed out my 2Peas pal "big" package. I am anxious for her to get it. I really hope she likes it. I will post pics of all that I sent after she receives it. I also have a few things I have worked on that I am sending her as a "thank you" gift, but I can't post pics of those either for a while.
Today I got most of my wrapping done. It took me all of like 30 minutes. It doesn't take long to wrap a bunch of video games and DVDs:( Our tree looks so bare with our small little piles. I did V's stuff in some really cute pink wrapping paper with penguins on it that I got in the T Dollar Spot and Mattie's in some blue with snowmen on it. REALLY cute. I'm going to go back and get this cute red one with Santas on it to do Stevie's stuff with. That way everyone's presents are all wrapped the same. I thought that was a pretty cool idea;)
I worked on one LO in the evening yesterday and finished it up tonight. I got the inspiration for it from this woman Jilliand's blog banner (Crazy Beautiful:)
Papers are Elsie and the black/white polka dot is MM. Doodlebug Paper Frill, HS ghost flower, AL button, some polka dot ribbons, Hero Arts butterfly stamps, some KI epoxy alpha stickers, adhesive gems, buttons and some chipboard letters from Miss Elizabeth's (good AC knock off;)
Also got some pics of V in her Santa hat in front of the tree. I still need to do Mattie's and then some of them both together. That's going to be fun:(
That's all the news for today:) Have a great night:)
