Well I have decided to start something new on Thursdays. It is What Are You Working On? I thought I would start a weekly entry about what I am working on this week. So for my first entry I wanted to show you what is going on. I have mentioned several times that I needed to come up with a Thanksgiving card and I finally came up with the idea. I don't know why this was taking me such a long time to come up with an idea. So I just put my stamps and inks on my desk and decided to test things out to come up with the card. So when I make a card you can usually count on a couple of this going on--distress ink, neenah solar white cardstock, copics, and of course my favorite Hero Arts stamps (boy that would be a dream job working for them!!! I can dream can't I?).
I completed one card (I will post it next Wednesday) but I wasn't totally happy with it so I decided to tweek it for the second one. I just have a couple of finishing touches on it and it will be done! hooray! I want to get them in the mail this weekend. I always like for my cards to arrive early! I never like to be late (for anything!)
Well a lot of you have been asking for me to post pictures of all my holiday decorations(yes I read all my wonderful comments and if you ask i will try to make it happen --if possible). I love to redo a lot of the rooms in my house for the holidays. So the first room was the kitchen. Several years ago (wow it has been at least 10 years now) I found after the holidays the perfect sale on this set of dishes. I had seen in a magazine once that the person changed her dishes and accesories every season. Well I knew that was out of my budget but I could maybe do winter dishes. Like I said I found the perfect sale--the dishes and accesories were all 75% off--yup I bought everything--plates, bowls, platters, mugs, candlestick holders, birdhouses, you name it! So here is a quick picture of part of the set. I just love the winter cabin feel. There is nothing better than being in your warm and cozy sweats and have a fire going while it is snowing!
So next week I will post pictures of the boys' trees. We are going out to pick out this years ornaments. Can't wait. Jack is really getting into Christmas this year! I love it! We already wrote our letter to Santa. Got to get shopping!
If you feel like posting what you are working on that would be awesome! If you wanted to post a picture in the comment that would be awesome as well. I love to hear what everyone is up to--not just see the finished product.
Thanks for stopping by and I will be back tomorrow with a new layout.
