Christmas is in two weeks. It’s 1 degree outside – Yes, just 1 degree Fahrenheit. And I’m playing around with bright, summer colors. This is Penny Black’s Betsy Bluebell again. I colored the image with Prismacolor colored pencils and OMS. Another birthday card for my stash.

A Slice of Life: Happy Friday! It was another fast, busy day. I anticipate a fast, busy weekend, too. There is a lot to be done. Places to go, too. Miranda’s friends are throwing a baby shower for Mommy and Baby Girl Carlson tomorrow afternoon. Someone asked. Yes, Baby has a name, but I’m holding out for the big announcement. Soon? Maybe, although her doctor’s nurse has predicted January 7, which, if she is going to hold out that long could just as well be a day earlier, so she and Great-grandma (my mom) can share their birthdays. That would be cool.
Sarah and I had a great time finishing her recipe boxes last night, and they really turned out nice. We used Yes! paste for two of them, which were covered with thinner paper, and the Xyron to accommodate heavier stock. She thought the Xyron was pretty cool and probably would have opted to use it for all three had I given her the option. I thought she needed a “paste experience,” however. LOL. Regardless, she did an awesome job and was really proud of her gifts for her sisters. Sweet.
I’m off to see what everyone else has been up to in Blogland before slipping into my jammies for an early bedtime. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. “See” you soon!
