TCB Tuesday*...


Progress is being made -

  • Holiday Cards are all addressed.
    (which I know doesn't sound like a big deal, but since I insist on doing it by hand - return addresses too - it takes FOREVER. I know, I know.... I'm a moron. And, of course, I still have to *write* the darn things....)

  • PomPom Garland has been made!
    And I can not thank Beki enough for introducing me to this idea! I am so happy with this.
    First off, I think it is cute. And secondly, I had a wonderful afternoon with Schecky - sitting on the couch, overdosing on cocoa and cheesy Rankin/Bass Christmas specials, and stringing pompoms. And for that, this garland will always be special to me....

  • One little bear down!
    One companion bear for her sister to go...
And, oh yeah - I did finally get the laundry pile dealt with too. I may not be done with everything from Friday's list yet - but at least things are moving forward!

Baby K is very sweet. You are a bear making machine. I love the pom-pom garland. It looks so pretty with the colored lights on your tree.

this is the first year i finally wised up and typed all the addresses into a mail merge.

i'm on the computer right now because i'm suppose to be printing them off. guess i got a little sidetracked.

ahem.

What a great garland! And even better with the memories.

You are so on top of things with the Christmas cards! Shutterfly just emailed me today to say that they'd shipped ours -- and to expect them 12/18! Looks like I'll be rationalizing again that anything mailed by 12/24 is legit. Oh well.

Awww, so cute. You are waayyyyyy ahead of me on the Christmas card thing. I think my goal is going to be any time before 2007.
(but I did get gnome #3 done)

I'm just getting my cards out today, though I've had them for a good 3 weeks. It's the darned addressing that gets me. Once I finally sat down to do it, it didn't take all that long at all.
Your pom poms look great!

I'm seriously in love with those bears. They are so, so cute!
And I'm with you on the addressing all my cards. I love to have nice handwriting and pretty envelopes. I truly live for this kind of stuff. Isn't that silly? Valentines are a big deal for me too!

I just finished doing my christmas cards it took me all of 30 minutes. Printed our names and best wishes on them from the computer. printed off address labels. had pre-printed return labels and then had an assembly line inserting, stamping and sealing. Great and fast way to do them. Loving it!
