Christmas DONE!…

I hope you all had the best Christmas EVER!! 

Our Christmas was a lot better than I had hoped for…considering two of the kids didn’t make it home…but with several phone calls and ‘Facetime’ (LOVE Facetime!!) it almost felt like they were here…well …almost!


All in all…we had a wonderful Christmas…but it went fast…WAY too fast!!  No time to smell the turkey! 


The company has gone :o((…the fridge is still full despite my best attempts to send it all home with the kids! 

In a blink of an eye, we had the decorations down…tree put away…and everything put back into its proper place!

Now comes the fun!!  Today I will pack up my sewing room…literally!!  Do any last minute laundry!  Decide what beads to take down…(there’s Beading  in the Clubhouse every Monday)! 

Last year I didn’t take enough…this year…well..I have narrowed it down to this…


AND look at what I got from the kids for Christmas…all kinds of neat jewelry making ‘stuff’!


Hammers and Number and Letter Punch Sets…


A Dapping Tool…not that sure what it does but it looks like it might do something cool…??


More punches and lots of stuff to smack with the hammer!!  Oh I am going to have fun at beading!


I’m going to need a dolly to wheel all this stuff to the Clubhouse…and I may get kicked out once I start wielding these hammers around…BUT I’m going to have FUN!  Yup…I got spoilt once again this Christmas!!  ALL this and an iPad too!!  Pretty darn special!  Thanks girls!!xoxo  My heart runnith over… and so does my beading case!

Well I better get off my keester and start packing ‘er up!  Times-a- wasting!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quiltilng!~P


  1. Looks like you had a great day. Is facetime on Google +? A friend of mine said you can chat with more than one person through google... but I need to investigate that.

    Have a great day!

  2. We have a dolly you can borrow!Not using it! Clubhouse was good yesterday.......
