What’s Going On?

on November 13, 2014

This is the time of year that I really feel like there are so many projects I want to complete and so little time. I see so many pretty things I want to make for friends and family that I wish I could clone myself, lol.  But since I can’t do that I do try to make a list of projects I really want to complete and then set aside time on my calendar to work on them.  Most of the time, I am able to do so but there are times that life gets in the way. Is this the same for you?

Between now and Christmas there are only so many days in the week, etc. If you read my blog post dated Oct. 21st you will remember that November and December are full of workshops, classes and work days for you to come and complete your projects.  Here are the dates:

CROP:

  • Saturday, Dec. 6th, from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm.  I extended the hours for Dec 6th because it is our last crop of the year and we are having a Christmas Sock exchange. You bring a  pair of cute Christmas socks, stuffed full of little goodies valued at no more than $10 tied with a pretty bow around them. At the crop we will stand at  behind our chairs while I read a Christmas story about Santa Claus traveling in his sleigh, each time you hear left or right mentioned in the story you will pass the pair of socks in that direction. At the end of the story you keep the socks that are in your hand. It is SO much fun and I love Christmas socks don’t you!

WORKSHOPS:

  • Nov 22nd, Saturday, 1:00pm to 3:00pm, My Crush Holiday Happenings. Most of us are very busy with hustle and bustle in December going to parties, shopping, putting up our Christmas tree, wrapping presents, baking delicious goodies, going to see the beautiful Christmas lights, etc.  Sometimes we include these events in our photo albums but not always.  The My Crush Holiday Happenings book is a way to record these special holiday events as they happen.  The book is a kraft hardcover with foil gold accent and wire bound.  We will be adding additional embellishments and a title to the front cover.

    Dang! I have stuff on all the dates.

    I’m going to Delaware from 3-15 December. Good news is mom’s tumor has not grown and her CA19-9 markers went down. The bad news is her blood sugar is going up to 250/fasting from 100 in March. We need to check on her and my dad regularly though to give my brother and sister relief
