Our third and last craft before lunch was our tag holder and 6 lovely tags... We used the most incredible "rolling" rubber stamp thingie that had the ink built right into it!!!! it was WOWsie according to everyone at our table. Lunch was sooo yummy. Make your own sandwiches with every kind of meat, cheese, veggies, dips, CHIPSSSS, yum.... and sweets to die for. We munched and chatted for a bit and then back to work. The afternoon buzzed by with three more crafts.... the paper box, three awesome xmas cards and a glass ball with a floating tree in the middle!
OK, they found me... so now I have go, but I am ending this blog with a pic of all our crafts....
Thank you so much, to Myleta and all her elves for the amazing amount of work they did. The day was so fun, amazing, relaxing and amazing!!! oh, I said that already!! It was so fun to learn some new things, use very cool supplies, and meet some really nice people too.
and they made us little bags to take all our goodies we make as we move along from one table to the other... and to take our goodies home.I have to go... cause my sister in law has arrived.... I will finish this tonight... stay tuned!

The snow started last night around 9pm and by midnight, when Mollie was having her last pitstop outside before bed.... we were treated to a fresh clean blanket of snow. Mollie loves the snow... not sure why. Seeing my ole skeleton faced pumpkin covered in snow, made me think that I need to take down all my fall decorations and find something a little more wintery but not Christmasy.
Today, I made a big pot of spaghetti sauce, using all the "low sodium" stuff like canned tomatoes, tomato sauce...paste... you know all that. I thought I would add an extra teaspoon of chili seeds to the mix, to offset the lack of salt flavor.... wooooooo.... zippy. Those little seeds are pretty powerful. Dad loved it, as he loves spicy food but I was having difficulty with mine, and needed a tissue or two to get through the running nose.... The rest is in the freezer for the next couple of weeks. yipee....
A big congrats goes out to Stephanie, who has just found out she made the Dean's list this year, and although she was attending the Dean's supper anyway, to receive an award, she is now going as a "member" of the list, instead of an "honoured guest". So, she will be off tomorrow to buy a dress for the occasion and she will keep us all posted on what she buys. I am very excited for her, as she has worked very hard these past few years in school, and she deserves this honor!
Michelle just let me know that she is coming home on Thursday for the weekend.... that is pretty exciting to me!!!
Winter decorations.... Dogwood flowers.. Polar Bears (my mom made these in 1972) and an evergreen tree... ok, dogwoods are not wintery... well maybe they are somewhere south, but these are my least vibrant colored flowers I own!!!
I can't believe we have tomorrow off. I am sooooo thankful....
