This has been a pretty hectic week couple of weeks between work and home. Work is always crazy but the personal stuff is awesome. I was asked to be a part of another crafting board and online store that is getting up and running as an administrator, oversee swaps, design team member, and online class instructor. Thank goodness all these duties do not start until January. There is activity on the board now but the kickoff will be January. At least it will give me a full month's break before starting. I will still do stuff on this board as well. Just super excited to be asked.

I hope to get some good crafting time this weekend.

Kel

Kelli - sounds like you have some interesting and fun and busy months ahead of you! Look forward to hearing more about your new venture.

Was going to craft last night but got side-tracked so I will be up bright and early on Friday to hunker down in the craftroom! May find an hour or two to sneak in there tomorrow in between the snitches of slivers of pumpkin pie. lol

Happy Thanksgiving all! Gobble Gobble!

Okay - so is anyone finding some good Black Friday online deals for our crafting addictions?

MemoryMakingCrafts.com has good price on scor tape which I ordered. I like to stay stocked up on that stuff when I see a good price.

And GinaKDesigns has (what hopes to be) a fun and interesting mystery box and I needed some of their CS so I ordered some of that as well to qualify for free shipping. Plus you get to pick out a free stamp set too from a selection of 6 choices. So figured I was getting lots free and/or a real good deal at the same time that I was re-stocking my favorite CS.

I looked at a few other sites cuz of percentages off on dies and stamp sets, but decided to not splurge.

But if someone else finds a great price on stuff we covet here...wouldn't take much to talk me into it. lol

Finished another project last night for this swap so I'm off to work on the next item on the list!

Then leftovers later at my parents....

Though I brought pie home with me last night...so guess I'm off to snitch a slice of that first. I'm sure it will be good for my creative mind, right??

2 more projects completed yesterday! I'm gaining!

So is it a crafting day or a shopping day or a catch up on sleep day for you?

Totally crafting for me....

I'm having way too much fun with these new projects and themes I'm working on to stop!

Today is a crafting day for me. Family is gone for a long weekend - hunting. So the house belongs to me and the furbabies. Waiting for an item to dry and working on another now. Love these no interuption craft sessions.

I crafted allot yesterday, plus sent off more of my
homemade thankyou notes. Pple have been so kind
and tomorrow is Bill's benefit too.
Thanksgiving was great except one dd was in Seattle
with her dh visiting his relatives. We had an amish turkey
and 2 kinds of stuffing etc and 3 kinds of pie, but I stuck with
the pecan cause that is my favDrool
My ds couldn't sleep that night so went on a late night visit to his
gym where he works out, it was 3 am and he said the traffic was xcrazy as if it
was broad daylight. Me, I was sleeping. I did get a few things today tho.
Got a leaf blower for 20% off and some pic software for my new puter etc
it was about half off too. Gotta love a good dealBigGrin
Hope everyone else is having a great weekend.
Waves to both my partners....

Holy cow, I just posted a long posting and it just disappeared!!! Grrrrr... I've also been having issues with logging on... crazy!
Anyway, in a nutshell... didn't get any decorating done, I went to our storage building to get the tree stand that Bill forgot, but it's so buried that I couldn't get it! So that won't get done, but I can do the other stuff... but did I? Nope, I came home and was so cold that I fell asleep!!! Yikes!!! So I decided that tomorrow will be decorating time! I'm off to the craft room to work on some things for this swap!
Jen, does your husband go hunting just for the day? Mine left Friday afternoon and won't be back until Tuesday night!!! So I have some quiet time here!!!!
Kathy, I hope the fundraiser goes very well! How wonderful to have such kind people looking out for you and your husband! And I'm sure you would do the same!!! Good luck!!!!!
Talk tomorrow!!!

We are a crazy people to be up shopping in middle of night! lol

I always think the prices are just as good - if not better - in the final days winding down to christmas day. So I haven't shopped Black Friday in years and years and years.

Got another project done this afternoon. It's so nice to have a long weekend and just be able to relax and craft and not be bothered by anyone! lol Really helps that it's football season and DH is busy watching the games all weekend long! lol

Teri - I envy you being able to do your christmas decorating while the house is empty! You are so lucky for that perfect opportunity! Better get it done tomorrow! lol

and good luck Kathy with the fundraiser for your DH. It's wonderful that your community is doing this for you both!

A special hello to both my SS's & I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving with family and friends... and it looks like some of you got some shopping done. We didn't do any shopping for the sale items. I keep seeing e-mails and need to check out what is online but my mother has kept me busy enough and I haven't had much of a desire to even look.

We had a nice dinner, my mom invited co-worker and her husband over and we played a couple games of Uno with Brandon, which he loved. We did a few things on Friday and started the outside a litte bit inside and yesterday we finished up decorating inside.

I am almost packed and ready to head back home. I always say it is a 7 hour drive but some how it always ends up to being closer to 8 - 9 with pit stops and I imagine today won't be any different as I would like to stop and get a couple geocaches along the way to fill in different towns and counties I haven't gotten on this side of Texas.

I did find a little bit of time to work on a few items but have some more work to complete it all so I hope to work on more tonight - depending on how late I get home.

Peachy - I totally meant to post the few pictures of Romania I have but I guess time got away. I will definitely do it either tonight or tomorrw. I really want to get on the road. But I promise I will post them.

I hope everyone has a great day

Yes, we are in the same boat Kelley, I feel like this swap got away from me somehow, but I am working hard to get it done!

Well I do have some good news for those of you feeling behind in this swap.

The DD has been extended to Wednesday, Dec. 5th for everyone except Joysee. So that gives you this next weekend to still work at it and still have Mon. and Tues. evenings to take pics, wrap, and get mailed by Wednesday. So hopefully that will remove some of the pressure for all.

As for Joysee - I was so hoping she would check in by today. But no luck. I will try to call her later or tomorrow. After giving it much thought, I've decided that she has had her chances to graciuosly bow out from this swap from my phone call to her and from GrandmaJ calling her. But she indicated that she wanted to stay in all her swaps, even knowing that she was in and out of the hospital and unsure of her crafting time and ability to mail out boxes.

So if I don't get to actually speak with her on the phone or if she doesn't check in ASAP, then I will have to wait to see if she gets a DC# to me on Dec. 1st. If not, then she will be removed and the SS mailing to her will instead mail to Joycee's SS. So that's the other reason why I'm changing the DD - as that person can not mail until Monday, Dec 1st, as I'm holding her up from mailing in hopes that Joysee will come through last minute. Joysee indicated both phone calls that she was mostly done with her swaps - so I hate to remove her - but now that it's coming down to the wire, I really have no choice if she doesn't follow thru or get in touch with me via phone.

I'm not putting her on the flaker list, just politely removing her, under the circumstances of her health and hospital issues.

So that's where we stand with that.

Everyone else should be able to mail out by the 5th, no problem.

Taking a break from finishing the purse. I like the way it turned out and hope my SS recieving it likes it. It is a little bigger then I thought so I need to get more candy, well this and I just needed a piece or two of chocolate this weekend - lol.

Being so close to the end of the swap I thought it might be a good idea to check and see if there are any updates. Looks like the DD was extended. I will just sort of pretend I didn't see the extention because I feel I craft better when there are no interuptions and the house is mine until Tuesday when dd comes back from hunting.

Kelley and Pamela, I can relate to time getting away from me. I am not doing too bad but feel like I am not as far as others or as I would like to be.

Teri, my husband left Friday at 3:00 am. He has a friend that hs a 300 acre farm and he allowed dh to build a cabin on a portion of his farm. So my dh, fil, our two sons and some other friends usually go for about 5 to 7 days a few times a year depending on the season. Now last year my daughter decided to hunt so she passed her hunter safety course and well got her first doe last year. This year she would like to get a buck. So what used to be me at home with three kids while dh went hunting is now me and the fur babies and dh has the three kids, who are all adults now. But I don't mind being here being able to do what I want on my own time frame - lol.

I too am going to ignore that extension because I'm almost finished my last item and refuse to change my mind again! I have this swap and one other that is just about finished as well, and then I'm done for the year. It's time to focus on Christmas so I need to limit my distractions. RollEyes LOL
