Well, I know I am crazy but I have the opportunity to open a new business. And the crazy part is I am thinking about it. I have prayed about it and I have put it his ( Gods) hands. It will be a antique shop, and maybe a little scrapbooking on the side. The building I want is up for rent and has a perfect place for crops in the back. Say a little prayer for me.

I just wanted to say Merry Christmas to all of my friends and loved ones. I hope since you have taken the time to sit awhile and read blogs you are relaxing. Remember that Christmas will come whether or not the cream cheese icing was runny or hubby ate a lot of my eggs I had boiled to stuff. Take a breath and remember the relax. As much as possible.

3 Days till Christmas!!!! Well, I am going to make one last run to Walmart this morning. It is my week to get grocey's and there is nothing here to eat. I am dreading it so much. We have Christmas with Hubby family on Christmas eve lunch and My family Christmas night. So my daughter and grandsons want to eat here on Eve night. ( with left overs all Christmas day) So, I have menu in hand, last minute gift ideas and no desire to shop. Suck it up, be a adult, grow up, be a woman, stand tall, deal with it, you are a grown ass woman. No, that didn't help any. I guess it is the time of the season . I also pulled a mussel in my back and have a throat that feels like raw meat. Like I said tis the season. But don't you just love all the hipe.

9 days till Christmas !

Any idea what this is ? They are" Clackers". I use to play with these when I was a child. I got these in a box at Auction. I knew right away what they where. They are basically 2 large marbles hanging on a string. You swing them together so that you hear the clacking noise. It is possible to get them going sooo fast that they clack above the hand and below. I have them hanging in my studio . I vision of my childhood. The memories of hitting my self and my sibling in the head. My childhood was sooo much fun.... Take a few minutes to remember one toy you enjoyed as a child. Merry Christmas!

Bet you didn't know I have a small collection of stuffed Christmas bears. I love an old fashion Christmas. And these bears are part of that. I haven't bought one in quite a few years . Since I quit a full time job. More things are more important, like the newest scrapbooking tool or embellishment. Hope you are having a Beary Merry Christmas.

A full morning of cropping ! Yeah! I worked a little on my Christmas cards. This layout of grandson #1. ( Girls dig scars) I worked on a little gift for a few friends and added a page in my Christmas journal. And painted angel wings for tomorrows class. I have really enjoyed this morning and now I am going to take a bath. Which is a big thing to me because I don't always get that much time alone to take a tub bath. Calgon is going to take me away and then I need to pick up grandson at school, run to Walmart and cook dinner and finish preparing for tomorrows class. Busy! Busy! but it makes the simple things like a bath so much sweeter. Bubbles here I come!

Don't you love the vintage look. I love finding these vintage Christmas cards. Life was so simple and slow paced in the 50's. Neighborhood Christmas parties or Cocktail parties. And the ladies dresses was so great, with matching gloves,hat and handbags. I just hope my comfortable jeans stay comfortable this season. Pass the goodies.......

Long day at Jasper store, Holiday extravaganza . Left home this morning at 8 am got home at 7 pm. On my feet most of the day. I think everyone enjoyed. It was dark when I started home and I had the Christmas tune filling up the car. I saw great lights coming home. Twinkle Twinkle , All the Christmas lights. We have noticed that even a shabby rotten shack of a house is beautiful with white lights. And I do admit I like the white twinkle lights. Twinkle Twinkle, I think I have the Christmas spirit. Twinkle Twinkle ,I am tired. Twinkle Twinkle, until later. Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas!!! Twinkle Twinkle, I like typing that word. Twinkle Twinkle, heck I like saying it too.
