hehe---any ideas what I've been doing today?
Let's just say, that I have a new love in my life and he is my dentist----and then, let me say that I have been terrified of dentists in the past----so much that I get ill when I need to go for a check-up. Today was different---I kept saying to myself while lying there snarfing up the glorious happy gas that I loved my dentist, I loved my dentist, I LOVED my dentist---never have I said that---this little old man will retire before I see him again I'm sure---but it was so pleasant to have met him and his gentle ways and ohhhhh yes---the happy gas.
Now---as I still feel like I'm floating a bit---let me try and get a few things posted for you without chatting too much---never know will come out of my mouth after today.
I'm flinging myself into a contest with Basic Grey---I'm such a sucker for a good challenge---so, these cards were created for it. You must go check out the gallery as there are some of the most delightful creations there.
Tomorrow, we are off to the mountains to cut a tree and cut wood for winter---I've been looking forward to this for a couple of weeks now. Then--I'll decorate the tree and my home for the rest of the day and hopefully get it done so we can sit back and enjoy.
I promise to post pictures of the trees I'm working on. I'm in love with one that should be finished Saturday---it's just sweet and shabby and woodsy---I wrapped the center with "Sparkle Lights"---they are so wonderful----they are just very gentle and subdued and twinkle in such a way that it adds so much interest and life---only the center is done this way---I've wrapped grapevine around it---just because I'm addicted to that stuff and use it all of the time--then it's got white berry garlands wrapped around it---thus the shabby comes in---cute rusty metal ornaments---some silver bells that are kind of worn, red berries, and now, I've just got to wrap some Styrofoam balls with fabric scraps to add a touch of homespun stuff, then I should be ready to take pics.
And...I've decided to sell my cards---I just need to get things going in that direction, but I'm not going to hurry---so when it happens it happens. In the meantime though, if you see something on my blog you love and want to purchase, send me a note and I'll put it aside for you. I really would like to have my holiday cards up for sale so you can use them for Christmas and whatnot---but it may not happen that quickly---but they are available.
Gosh---this chatty chic on the gas needs to go do something. I'm off to putter around.
Chat soon---have a great day tomorrow!
