December 1: Time flies… when you’re busy!

Posted by on December 1, 2015 at 1:27 pm.

Wow, has it been super busy for me. I blink… and it’s December. I still have so much to do before my daughter is out of school for the Christmas holidays. We have treat bags to make and I have a few items to knit and sew and also some soap that needs to be made. Sighs… I cannot complain. I do make time to smell the roses, regardless of how busy I am.

This is the first time I’ve been on a computer in almost a week and it shows, since it’s the only time I write my blog posts. While I have written blog posts on my iPad, I really don’t like it that much and so I still do the bulk of my posting on an actual computer.

A few weeks ago, I made this card for my cousin. Like me, she’s a Christian and so I added some Christian sentiments to her card. I’ve used this stamp once before and I thought it would be nice to use it again for her. I also made a matching envelope and included a few home made lip balms in her note. My goodness it took me a while to mail that out, but I finally did.

    YAY! The musicial snowmen are back on your blog! Must be THAT time of year again! LOL

    Great card!

    And I know what you mean about blogging and typing on your iPad! I’m the same way! I use my iPad a lot but can’t bring myself to blog on it! I prefer the laptop for that!

    @Jennifer, Ha! Yesterday was the first time I’ve been on my home desktop computer in weeks. My iPad has clearly become my tech communication device. About four years ago, I remember writing (for an online tech magazine) how handhelds would be replacing desktops/laptops.

    @suituapui, the month flew by for me. I’m in a new job, new adventures, things are moving fast… but I’m still making time to ‘smell the roses’.

    @Jennifer, My daughter had her Christmas program. They have a new band leader this year and they were AMAZING!!!! They sounded like a professional band. They are miles ahead of the prior years when it was sheer tirture listening to them play. ?????
