2007 is winding down, and in the last few days of the year I like to reflect on the past year and my goals for the coming year. I have made a lot of new friend this year, and I am thankful for them. I am thankful for all the new customers I have. I am thankful that I am reasonably healthy, as is my family, and even though we are poor in money, we are rich in the things that count.
My wish for you is to have a safe, healthy, and prosperous New Year!
My husband and I are huge New England Patriot football fans, and last night's win was fantastic. They are now undefeated in a regular season. Can they win 2 playoff games and then the Super Bowl? We certainly hope so and will be right there rooting for them on each game.
I have lots to do, so I will sign off for now. See you soon!

I've been so busy lately, I hadn't had time to do ANY Christmas Shopping. I was beginning to worry, but this morning my daughter called, the granddaughters were with their other grandmother, and did I want to go shopping? Can you spell relief?
My hubby and I had decided what to get the oldest granddaughter, Rachel (I can't tell you what it is, she might read my blog), told me which store to get it at and where it was located in the store. My daughter and I went to the store, and it wasn't there! We went through every article in every part of that section, and it wasn't there! I was beginning to panic! I finally tracked down a salesperson, and he said, "Oh, my employees packed those up to send back." Now I was really starting to panic. However, he looked in the stockroom, and lo and behold, they hadn't been sent back yet! Thank goodness his employees were inefficient!
Then we had to shop for the 4 year old. With all the toy recalls, what to get her? We finally settled on a 4-in-one doll carriage for her new baby doll that Santa's leaving, and some play food for her new Dora kitchen (also from Santa).
Would you believe I'm still making Christmas cards? I still have about 12 to make. I think I can crank them out tomorrow. I hope so!
It's very hot and humid (sorry to all you who are in the north and midwest with your snow and ice storms. I would welcome some cooler weather. It just doesn't seem like Christmas when it's this warm.
Well, we attended my hubby's Christmas party last night, and a Christmas party tonight, and I'm about all done in. We only have a get-together with my brother and sisters from out of town next Sunday evening, and that's fine with me. I need to make time one evening to go with the granddaughters to look at Christmas lights. We have some lovely decorated homes in our neighborhood, and then we go to the next town to look at theirs, and it's always a fun time.
So, it's off to bed for me. I hope you have sweet dreams, and have a restful day tomorrow. And remember to take some time to craft.

All the Christmas cards to the troops have been mailed. Yippee! I had a request from a captain for cards for the troops to mail home, and thanks to Melissa, a TAC angel, I have cards to send them. I've gotten all my personal Christmas cards done and in the mail, and I'll be posting more here.
Tim Holtz has graciously allowed me to post a link to his blog. If you haven't checked it out, please do! He's doing the 12 tags of Christmas, with lots of different techniques that would be good for cards year round. I've put it in my links section, but here it is again... http://timholtz.typepad.com/.Have a great crafting day!

So, I got busy, and made 10 more, but I still have a few more to make to have enough for MY list. And hubby hasn't given me HIS list yet!
Anyway, I thought I'd share a few more cards for inspiration.
This card is a matchbook card.I really like to make these cards, and they are soooooo easy!
I liked the look of this card....very soothing with the blues and purples. In case you didn't know it, blue is my favorite color.
I hope you have gotten some inspiration today, and I hope you get some crafting done.
I have a busy weekend ahead...making more Christmas cards, going to dinner with my daughter and her family, and tomorrow we'll be going to the cemetary to put the Christmas flowers on my parent's graves.
