Nice Sunday

Had a really nice visit with Dennis and his daughter, Fyre. Fyre is such a sweetie! She was bored at Mom and Dad's house, so I took about 3 huge bags filled with craft stuff for us to play with. She made a couple cards and we had a lot of fun. We also went shopping at the Dollar Store and found some great stocking stuffers. After Dennis and Fyre left, Shawn took Mom's old desk top computer out to our car and then Mom and I cleared off the desk and moved stuff in the back bedroom. Shawn and Dad then took the computer desk apart and put it on the deck outside. Now, in the next day or two, and if Mom calls me, I'll go over and help them move a little secretary desk and trunk out of the front room to the space in the back bedroom. Then, help them put up their Christmas Tree. Mom wants it up and decorated before anymore of the Great Grandchildren come for a visit.

Still working on some beaded bracelets/cuffs. Got most of my Christmas Shopping finished. Need to wrap most of it now. Blech. I'm not a good gift wrapper and I like to use lots and lots of tape! I still need to get some gifts for Shawn. Have no idea! Any suggestions? PLEASE! Send me suggestions and ideas for gifts for Shawn!

Well, that's it for now. It's past my bed time. HA!

Hugs and hope you're having fun getting ready for however you celebrate the holidays!

Another Day - Another Bead Spill

I was bundled up in a blanket on the couch with my bead tray on my lap. I'm working on another bracelet with 3 different colored beads. Then, the phone starts ringing. I set the tray down on the couch, not realizing that it was on top of the blanket, stood up and spilled the tray. Not all the beads, just enough to make a mixed up mess in my tray. So, now comes the fun chore of sorting them back out, putting them into their separate containers and get back to work on the bracelet.

I also have to work on a postcard to send out to a Secret Sister. I'm going to put together a little box of goodies for her too! Why? Because I have a house full of crafting supplies and materials I can easily share and still have tons for myself! Yeah, filling up a little box may give me one teeny, tiny square inch of clear space on my dining room table.

Well, off to do some bead sorting. So much fun I just can't stand it!

Hugs and love!
