Where Is The Time Going?

It was Wednesday when I took this photo.....but somehow, Wednesday turned to Sunday and here I am....posting my work everyone does at this time of the year, I'm going in 90 directions and my craft room, kitchen and every spare spot in the house shows it.  How can one be so organized one minute and so behind the next?  How about checking out the other Workdesks on WOYWW  If you aren't already playing's fun, it's free and it gets you either inspired or cleaning your craft room  :-)
I was feeling really organized when I finished this card.  I made it for two reasons.  One I can't say yet and one is because I was working on ideas for my January class.  I really like how this card turned out and sponging on top of an embossed card stock really made a difference. 
Is it too early to be thinking about Valentines Day?  I hope not.....This is the second card for my January class.  I'm not sure about the inside yet. 
I was at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique this week (so what's new :-)  and Karen had just received a new shipment of Flower Soft. I've always enjoyed playing with Flower Soft and of course had to purchase some new colors.  Home I ran (well drove) and I just had to play.....I cut the images from the windows and replaced it with Mylar.  I also added ribbon to the curtain topper and made tiebacks from ribbon.  I like how it turned out. 
Karen's Christmas Workshop way yesterday, I've been making these little calendars (a little something that will fit into a 1/4 fold envelope....a treat to accompany some of my Christmas Cards)
I was thrilled when Karen wanted to include similar ones for her workshop. 
The calendars are soooo easy to make and what a great way to use up all those scraps that we accumulate.  The flower on this one was made using my Spellbinder Rose die.  Pretty cute I think.  Oh, and of course a Martha border punch. 
We have two stray cats that we've been feeding and we are very careful to bring the food in at night, because this is what shows up to check and see that we've done our job.....How do you like the make-shift cat shelter my honey made.  It's one of my craft bins, with the side cut out....We've had it on the porch for a month and the two wouldn't go inside.  Then it dawned on me....they'd like a way to leave when company comes.  We cut a hole in back and's occupied by both of them every night.  We'd like to make them inside cats, but so far, they come in if the door is open, and they snoop around the living room, but as soon as we close the door....they both become very anxious and cry to get out.  This has been going on for 2 months.  We'd hoped to have gotten them inside before the weather changed, but no luck.  We're patient though and maybe that will change as winter weather worsens. 

I guess I should post more often, but finding time these days.....well that's the problem.  Before I forget, I was thrilled yesterday to meet one of the gals from Redding that follow my blog.  Sadly, I didn't get her name, but I did want to tell her how much I appreciated her kind words, and if she'd comment giving me her name....I'd be even more thrilled. 

I'd like to promise that I'd see you next Wednesday, but..with Thanksgiving the next day, I'm not promising anything.  So.......have a most wonderful Thanksgiving and I'll see you all soon!

One more thing before I go....I took this photo as I was leaving Weight Watchers on Thursday.  This photo says Fall to me and I LOVE all the beautiful colors of Fall....Just one more reason to be thankful! 

Hugs to all....see you soon!

  1. You may not be posting often... but when you do it's packed full of pure scrumptious~ness! Everything is simply amazing!

  2. Hi Mary,
    I am your Redding "stalker". It was a pleasure to finally meet you and let you know how much I enjoy your creations. I had a great time at PSB yesterday and LOVE the little calendar project. I plan to make several to tuck into C'mas cards.

  3. Karen...thanks for responding....are the Redding girls coming to the Christmas crop? If so, I'll see you there. "Stalk" any time...have a great Thanksgiving.

  4. Hope you manage to persuade your new pets to come inside before the winter sets in Mary. Love the photo of those beautiful trees. You have been busy with your projects and yep, I know the feeling of busy, busy, busy.


Thank you for spending time visiting my blog. And thank you even more for your comments. I LOVE reading each and every one of them. Happy creating!
