Christmas Tags

Saturday morning was slow for me today. Slept in till 8:00 am! I never do that! I am usually up early. The only reason I think I got up at 8:00 is our Siamese cat was so stinking noisy! Then the dog jumps up and panting. Don't they ever sleep in??? Oh wait I forgot, they sleep all day!

My hubby has been working out of town so much! I don't hardly get to see him. I was able to fix him breakfast today! It was very nice to be able to sit down and eat together. Now he is off for a long day at work, he said he'll probably be late tonight. Then he will have to go out of town again next week to Ukiah.
So I am in my craft room, getting things ready for an up coming craft show. I made these tags!
I love tags. I like to make tags for my own packages. My family doesn't want to open the packages because they are gift wrapped in a theme. Do you ever do that? They are posted on my website, so you can take a look there at all the ones I have made.

Anyway, have fun looking, make a comment or two. I love feedback! If you think of something I could do better at, don't be afraid to tell me. I am OK with that!!! Talk to you soon!

Happy Birthday To Me!!!

Awww! Today is my birthday and I am having a wonderful day. Although, I am having to work, it's ok. My staff was so cute!! I got a wonderful ceramic ice cream code filled with candy, bow and a cute balloon. A bottle of Merlot, mmm, and Sunflowers!!! Oh they are so pretty!!! And my daughter came to take me to lunch!

Tonight I am meeting my girlfriends for a gathering at a pizza parlor, where we hold our monthly card making workshop. We thought we would get together before the meeting and have a little fun. (not too much as I have to drive home!) Got it covered though, just in case I have a designated driver lined up!

I signed up for a showcase and I am hoping to drum up a few more lookers. Sales have been down since mid-June, so I am hoping it will pick up soon.

All in all, it's a good day in the neighborhood and here is to a great night!!

Saturday Morning Coffee

Ah! Good Morning.. I am having a great cup of coffee, toffee nut creamer! MMM! My fave. I am reading the online newspaper, saying hello to a few Facebook friends.

Today is a girlfriends birthday! Happy Birthday Angela!!! She and I have known each other for about 9 years. Since her and my birthday are 4 days apart, we usually celebrate with a dinner and a movie. I will buy one and she buys the other. Spending time with each other is the best gift of all.

Middle of July and close to the holidays. There are many "Christmas in July" presentations going on. Many artists are debuting their creations. I have began creating some of my line, only posting a few. I will list a couple and you can tell me what you think!

Have a great Saturday!

Ah! Wednesday!!! The middle of the week. WONDERFUL day!! I am having a great morning! I hope you all are too.

You should all check out this shop! RogersStuff!! He is making me stickers to go on my car for advertising. I got to see the example this morning and he did an awesome job! I am responding to his email and hopefully you'll see a picture of it. What a cool way to advertise your shop!!! Go visit him!

Don't forget I am having a sale in my shop!! 10 cards, under $4.00 price for a group price of $25.00 !! What a way to get a wide selection of cards.

Well, have a fab day!!

Monday Morning Blues

Well, it was back to work today after a wonderful restful vacation. I had a great time with ME! I got up when I wanted, drank my cup of coffee in my favorite sitting area, listened to the music I like. Made myself breakfast and ate it when I was ready! (who cares if it was cold!) It was such a nice feeling to get to know me. Most of the days, I had pure quiet! No TV, no radio, well occasionally my siamese cat wouldn't stop meowing! OMG! Anyone else have a siamese cat?! Love you Baby!!

So I go back to work today, ran a bunch of reports, and waited for our 2:15 all company meeting. So the news came in!!! We lost the bid for the new contract! I was not expecting that piece of news! So now what?! My advise to myself.... "one day at a time"!

Don't forget everyone...grab that recipe for the cheesecake! If anyone makes it, post a comment. Let me know what you think!

Saturday Morning Coffee

Good Morning! Have you had your morning coffee? I poured myself a cup and thought I would write a few words. Did you all get a copy of that cheesecake? OH you must! It is really so very very good!

I have been off work all week on vacation. I must say I have had a wonderful relaxing week. Hubby was working, and still is out of town, so needless to say, I am all by myself! It was nice to spend time with me. I was busy in my craft room and thinking about what is really more important in life other than stressing myself at work!

Well friends, please enjoy your day and if you have some time, visit my shop!

This is one of the posting. A very popular one at that!
