Wishing you all a Very Happy Thanksgiving

I wanted to take a break from all my cleaning to wish my blog family a very Happy Thanksgiving.

I have been busy this morning with cleaning. I am trying to get the house ready for the Christmas decorations. It is sooo hard to believe that this year is just about over. Our plans for tomorrow are to have lunch with DH's family and then supper with my family. Oh my! All that food. I dont know why things just cant be simple. I love this time of year, but I hate all the running that we have to do. Do y'all have to go from place to place or do y'all just stay put?

I usually have my tree decorated for tomorrow. I have the lights on it, just got to do the finishing touches. Wesley is excited about decorating. I dont know about Josh. The older he gets the less he cares. Sometimes I know how he feels. I just havent been in the spirit for a few years now. I dont know what's wrong with me.

Anyway, this is not why I dropped in. I hope that everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow. I hope that if you are traveling that you will be safe. So to my blog family..... Happy Thanksgiving.

Look out Myrtle Beach,,,,, Here we come

Yep that's right. I am takin a small vacation. I have been anywhere in the past 2 years. DH has taken the boys up the lake and I stayed home, but now it's my turn. Im taking the boys and we are goin' with my mama and daddy to Myrtle Beach for the weekend. WhooHoo!!! Finally some time away from the house. Do you ever feel like a prisoner in your own home? That's how I have been feelin'. All I do is wash and clean, wash and clean. Sooooo, Im gonna break the door down on Friday and Im outta here. I sooo can not wait... I really need this time away and I think it will do me good. Finally gonna do something for myself.

We are gonna hit the outlet malls down there and do a little Christmas shopping. I dont plan on buying much. Josh and I started the tradition last year of shopping on Black Friday. So we will hit the malls early next Friday, but Im just lookin forward to the time away from home.

Just wanted to share this with y'all.

OMGOSH,,, how could I forget these

I have made these ornies up too. I think they turned out to be my favorite. I got the printables from Sassafras Hill. I just love the patterns she has. Sorry I forgot them.

Front and back:

Well it finally happened....

I have come down with the "Crud". That's what we call it anyway. Nasty cough, runny nose. I have been trying to fight it off for about a week or two now, but this cold has won. I hate feelin this way. Some of the girls at work have been sick and the kids in the program have been sick, so I guess I had to get it at some point. Last night I felt sooo bad, not feelin much better today either. Seems that it always happens right around the Holidays too.

I have been working on a few things though. I need to work on A LOT more. I did get the free download peppermints that Char offered on her blog a few weeks back. I am pleased with how they turned out. They are soo easy to do, and fun to make.

I also finished up the Vintage Candles that I got from The Primitive Pear. I just love her stuff.

Things have been quite wild around here, with the wedding over I think I might be able to get some things done. I hope to anyway.

I hope everyone has a great day. Oh and if you havent seen the pictures from the wedding there is a slideshow on my Easy Livin blog

Happy Thursday Everyone

It has been one of those weeks. Monday and Tuesday were Teacher Workdays and I had to work longer hours for those 2 days. So now I am behind on things around here. I am so use to gettin up and gettin Dh and Ds out the door to work and school, but had to be at work at 5:30 Monday and Tuesday and then yesterday was just shot!! I didnt get anything done. Then had to rush home last night after work and get supper goin and finished before my cousin got her for me to color her hair. Yep Im a "retired" hairdresser!! Giggle. I havent done hair in a loooong time and the truth is I dont miss it one bit!!!

I do have some peppermints in the works though. I have managed to get them sewn up and I will "Try" to work on those some today. Inbetween the loads of laundry that I have, I hope to at least get them turned and stuffed. I have got to get my bum out and pick up some muslin I am completely out.. That never happens. It's just been sooo crazy around here. This weekend wont offer much help either. Why?? Well it's the big weekend!! My little brother is getting married on Saturday. Friday is rehersal and dinner! Gosh I dont see the light at the end!

Sunday my friend Angie and I are gonna try to go to our friend Angie's house for her Holiday Open House. She doesnt live that far from us, so I believe we are gonna make a road trip. Good Luck Angie on your first Holiday Open House.

Well that's about all I have for today. Busy, busy. And not craft busy that's what hurts. I hope everyone has a great day.. Hugs to all..

Upcoming Craftshow

Hey Everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know that Ami owner of Kountry Berry Designs is having a Christmas Craftshow. If anyone is interested in having a booth for show just click on the link for interested crafters. Thank y'all for peekin.

**Happy Holidays**

Here it is already November 1st. I have been thinkin' all day how November will be a short month for Josh and school. He only goes to school 13 days this month. Then he will be out for Thanksgiving break. I know he's ready for it.

As I think about the family get togethers for Thanksgiving, I cant help but think about Christmas and how it's just around the corner. As I say that I think back to when Josh was about 4 years old and how he wanted a toy soooo bad. I told him No toys Christmas is just around the corner. His reply was "What corner?" As he looked around every corner we came to in the mall. Those were the good times. So sweet and innocent.

I have been busy today. I worked on a couple of signs with vinyl lettering that I got from Ami at Kountry Berry Designs. Oh my gosh! How easy are they to do? I could not believe how simple it was. Im not one for stenciling and using paint, so this was very easy for me. Here is what I did today.

I also got a pattern from The Primitive Pear. I got the Vintage Candles and they are sooo easy to make too. I love how they turned out.

So Im gearing up for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I am just about in the Christmas Spirit. I think I need to turn on some music and get there already. Giggle. I want to wish you all Happy Holidays. Hugs!
