Good Morning everyone! Happy first day of December!!
I am so glad the weekend is finally here! Today I plan to get my Christmas lights out and maybe do some inside decorating too! Biggest part of the outside decorating I dread is finding all the stuff!! When I take it down after Christmas I tend to not be thinking about when I get it back out the next year so it is usually a tangled mess!! Our temp today is spose to be in the upper 50's so it won't be too bad outside untangling the lights!!

Our Christmas parade is always the Sunday before Thanksgiving. The poster is for the parade in a small town nearby that is trying to get a holiday tradition going and attract visitors. They are having a breakfast with Santa this morning, craft show part of the day (big enough it needs two locations) stories at the library, businesss are having open houses, the lighted parade at 5 (yes, it is dark by then!) and then a taco dinner.

Traci, great box of goodies you got from Jess! Love the mini! Those look like soooo much work and planning...sometime I should try one! Traci, what Maggie stamp did you get? (pic is small and I am evidently going blind!) Have fun with all the new stuff! Great pkg you put together and sent Jess!!

I better check a couple other threads and get dressed and get to my days work. You all have a good day and I will try to check back later to see if any more pkgs were received! Isn't this exciting?

Good Morning everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! Spose to get up into the low to mid 60's today...hard to beleive it is December! DH keeps threatening to get the mower back out to mulch up leaves that have blown into the yard! Glare

I have lots of big goals for today. Want to go to church of course, and then need to finish my outdoor lights, get my weekly trip to walmart and the grocery store done, and mail 2 swaps so they get out in tomorrows mail! Whew...that is a lot of doing for one day! Wish me luck!

Has anyone on here ever used Hammermill 80# photo white cover stock to color on with copics? I saw on a blog this morning that this is what one lady uses. It is a lot cheaper than Xpress-it, but would have to be pretty good in my opinion to be better than the Xpress-it is. Just curious!

Jess, I know what you mean about so many things you want to make...my list just keeps growing...maybe someday....ahhhhhh

Have a good day everyone! I got to get movin or nothing will get done!

Jess~ I would love to learn how to make the minis as well. I think DD's would love them too! I'm not very good at layouts but I'm going to start doing them to post in my FB store as I think they would sell well. I'm also trying out some groupings of things that match and go together for the FB store too. I'll post pics after I get one done and see what everyone thinks.

Janice~ Wow, that's a lot of doing! I got up and had breakfast and ran a few errands. Had to get some more adhesive to finish up on a few of my other projects. Hope you get everything done.

Traci~ So excited that you got that stamp. She's so cute. I would love to have some of the Hello Little Butterfly Stamps. I think that will be on my first wishlist in the new swap for Jan. Cool

Rhonda~ Finishing up today for sure and will be going postal on Tuesday or Wednesday! Sorry, I have to work tomorrow and won't make it to the PO before it closes. Can't wait to get it in the mail.

Have a great rest of your day, Maggie Sisters

Rebecca mini's are so much fun. I started by watching video's on youtube. I learn everything from thereBigGrin ! I will help in anyway I can. What is the name of your FB store? I would like to find it on FB.

I found a recipe for orange creamsicle cookies. It says they taste like the orange cream popsicles. So I think I am running to the grocery store for some oranges!

I'll check back later!

I forgot to mention that Krista from Saturdated Canary is going to have a free digi tomorrow for 12 hours only. Not sure when it will be available. I got the info from her FB page. I hope I can figure out how to get it downloaded and saves. Its probably not as hard has it seems to me. We will see!

Just an update: My MIL passed away on Friday and the service for her is tomorrow with family in town through Wednesday. My computer time is limited a bit until things settle down. I have most of the swap for Joysee ready, but will most likely not be able to mail it until Friday. I apologize for the delay. ((((hugs))))

Misstamper, I am soooo sorry to hear your MIL passed away. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the family. God is good and he knew it was time to take her home. Hugs.

Good morning everyone. Here it is, Monday already. My 'to do' list is still just about as long as it was at this time yesterday morning. Nothing went my way yesterday except church, which was very inspiring. The lighting of the HOPE candle is always such a good reminder!

Have a good day everyone. Spose to be in the upper 60's here today...I need snow!

missstamper, Sorry to hear your MIL passed away. No time is good for a loss but during the holiday's just seems to make it worse because everyone expects you to be joyful. Y'all are in our prayers.

Janice, I got nothing done yesterday either! I need to get a new microwave because mine is dead and forgot! That is until it was time to warm up dinner and I realized I had to do it on the stove. Laugh

I decided to start selling Stampin' Up and have posted clubs for January here and I have created a blog for sharing Stampin' Up specific items and promotions.

I have 1,000 things to do today but am looking forward to going out to dinner with DH this evening.

No special occasion, he has a client in town that asked to take us both to dinner. So, we are going to a nice restaurant but it will be dinner for three not two. But I will take what I can get because he has been out of town so much and when he is in town he is playing catch up either at work or at home. Time together is a premium!

ETA: We have been in the 80's, kind of hard to be in the Christmas spirit in shorts and t shirts. I love the FL weather but I do find it is harder to get into the holidays when we have hot years. I do better when we have cold winters even if those cold winters are only in the 60's.Cool

Missstamper~ So sorry to hear about your MIL. Hugs and prayers coming your way!

I'm sure Joysee isn't in any hurry as she's having surgery tomorrow. She just got out of the hospital for the weekend and will be back in tomorrow. She's been having a lot of issues with her health.

Just popped in to say hi to all the Maggie Sisters~ Heading out to work and have to close tonight. Probably won't be on till tomorrow. Have a great Monday, ladies

Good Morning Maggie Sisters!!

Jess, where was the sneak peek? OMG all these new releases are killing me!! LOL! Are you doing the Magnolia Advent Calendar for a chance to win prizes? I have enjoyed all the inspiration on it the last couple of years and so far this year it isn't letting me down...(except I haven't won a prize yet!!)

Evelyn I checked shipping and your box is still suppose to arrive to you tomorrow!! Hope everything in it get there safely!!

It is such a relief to have all my swaps mailed. Now I can relax and decorate for the holidays and do some Christmas shopping!

Hope you all enjoy your day, and maybe some more pkgs will be received and pics posted!!

I saw the sneak peek on Magnolia World on Facebook. No I haven't checked it out. I will do that today! I think this new collection is going to be a great one!

I have one more swap to mail and I hope to do that thursday or friday. Then I can relax for the rest of the holiday season too!

I hope it does include something for her to lay on. She is a cutie!

Oh wow, I have looked at my craft room and get so frustrated with all the things I have. It is just so much. But I have resolved myself to no more stamps EXCEPT my Maggie stamps. I think that is one luxury I deserve and that is just exactly what I am going to concentrate on. I have so many new sets I haven't used and I am going to use them this coming new year.

Can't wait to see my box when it arrives. Woo hoo! Can't wait til my box arrives at its destination as well. Jess, thanks for the link to see all the neat stuff. That was so cool.

Now - I am looking forward to really making some neat stuff with my Maggie stamps. Hope you all are planning for a whopper January swap - Jess set up a cool one as she always does.

Thanks Evelyn! I can't wait to see your creations! You do beautiful work! I am going to concentrate on my Magnolia and Saturated Canary stamps this year too. I want to use them alot more than I do no!

Glad to see you pop in Kathy! I hope things are well with you and DH! I hope you will be back swapping with us soon! Y'all are still in my thoughts and prayers.

Hey Gayle! Have you heard from Sweets? I am going to send her a message!

Have a great day!

Good Morning everyone! Finally wednesday! I thought yesterday never would end, hopefully today will go better!!

Pretty nervous this morning....tracking still shows an expected delivery date of today for Evelyn's pkg. I hope she is not disappointed, and likes what I sent her!!

So we haven't heard from Sweets? I hope she is ok. I might have her email addy if you need me to email her I would be happy to look for it.

I have come to the conclusion that I could not live in a warmer area this time of year. I think these 60degree days are why I am having trouble bringing in the Christmas tree (yes, we use a fake tree). Christmas is spose to be cold and snowy and snuggly, not 'lets open the window and air out the house'. How do you all decorate with snowmen when it is this warm? I have said it before and i will continue to say it...I NEED SNOW!!!!

Traci, you can keep those 80's in December!! Were you born and raised down there in that 'heat'? I spose if you were it is normal to you, but we used to have LOTS of snow before Christmas,not this warm stuff and still some green grass!! The last few years it is getting warmer and less snow, but gosh, I NEED it for Christmas. My grandparents lived 1 mile from us when I was growing up and we always went to their house on Christmas Eve. Many years there was so much snow that the drifts along the side of the road were way taller than the car!!
