The Magic Show, the Grump that stole Thanksgiving and autumn spendor.....
We lived through Thanksgiving. I was a grump and the fam gave me a wide berth but we all lived to tell the tale.
And here are some of the pretties that I made with the autumnal bounty the Judy Stern and April Ross sent to me. Thanks ladies. We will now decorate our outside front porch tree with the pine cones, magnolia pods, acorns and leaves as well as some foliage and fun gathered from the neighborhood trees. I love our natural tree and it is twice as blessed this year because I have lots of sista love on the tree as well.
We did get the lights up around the house, stocking hung on the gates and things are looking a little holidayish. This weekend will begin the fun for the grands.
Got my cards finished and in the mail. Only two more packages and I'm done. All the shopping for the grands and Shel and SM have been finished for a month and I'm a lucky ducky that kept my list to a minimum and got just what was on the list.
Gonna go to the twinkle light parade this weekend and see if I can find some Holiday spirit lying about. It should be fun. The Nob Hill area of Albuquerque is sorta chichi but also boho so there could be some possibilities. I want to go to my fav shop Masks y Mas and look at the Day of the Dead and Guadalupita items.
Now for the rest of December, I am going to concentrate on sewing for me. I also am taking a serger class so that I can figure out what to do with it besides stick two pieces of cloth together. And I'll be doing my mermaid a thon shortly.
It's hard being a half year off with creations. I'd love to make some cute things I've seen for winter but I need to be at least at the end of spring in my endeavors. Oh well.....splashing tails, shells and flotsom and jetsom here I come.
