NOT a Christmas Card!
Nope, no Christmas card here - just a birthday card I sent to a very dear friend the other day. The image is from Taylored Expressions and the hat from Tim Holtz. Very simple card but hey, that's what I do.
I had this exact expression on my face the other day. My daughter keeps giving me things to do (whether I want to or not) and had asked me to redo a wreath for her school. The sucker was HUGE and the tackiest looking thing I'd ever seen in my life. Honest! So, I set up a table and stuck it up there and worked my magic. (THAT'S a joke since there is no magic at all in my fingers when it comes to things like that. I'm not a florist or wreath maker or whatever and don't pretend to be either). Anyway, I had to run to the local craft store to get some things to go on the wreath and this is where "the look" comes in . First of all I had to park about a half mile away just to get to the store. This isn't good. Got in there and if there was one person there were 4,000! No reason that I could see other than it's close to Christmas. So, Lynn put the smile on her face and braved the crowd. Got the stuff I needed and after standing in the checkout line for an hour, came home. It's no wonder people shop online anymore. My Christmas spirit left as soon as I saw that wall of people in the store! But......the good news is that I did finish the wreath and it was passable ok!
Thanks for stopping by...................and SMILE!
