Sunday I participated in the Annual Business Women's Holiday Sale. It was a little disappointing, the crowd wasn't what I had expected, but I wasn't totally bummed, it was a great learning experience and I met a lot of other great women. Our fee included breakfast and lunch served to us, and the bar opened at 5. So got to finish the day with a glass of wine. I shared a table with a needle felter. It was fascinating to watch her poke at the ball of wool yarn and see it take shape. She slowly turned the wool into little gnomes. They were so adorable.
And I finally got my Christmas cards off in the mail today. Sent out my own designs this year. Here's a couple of the designs I used. I tried printing them my self at Kinkos, what a chore. I had trouble with the machines taking my card stock. Next time I think I will have them printed.
Haven't yet had time to bake, or finish my Christmas shopping. Although I already had to return one item, it seems my ex and I tend to buy the same thing for at least one of the grandsons. At least this year I found out before Christmas so I could exchange it.
Since I'm having my kids and some of my honey's kids at our house Christmas Eve I need to get busy and figure out what I'm going to feed them. Then a Christmas Concert next week and dinner with my sister another. Christmas will be here before you know it. So much anticipation and such a let down when it is over. It will be nice this year to have the day after Christmas off work to unwind, I don't have to go back till Tuesday.
It's such a fun time of year, and the weather has been cold here, no snow. But at least it feels like Christmas and no rain. Hope you are surviving all the holiday cheer.
A little over a week till Christmas. Take time from your busy schedule to enjoy the holiday season. It seems we get to wrapped up in making everything so perfect we forget to sit back and enjoy it. I ready for some hot buttered rum. Maybe tonite.
Thanks for visiting.
