Nov. 3

I felt like I was skipping school today, like I was going to get in trouble for not being at work.  I did manage to have a pretty good day though.  I was able to stay focused on the project I mentioned last night, and got quite a bit accomplished on it, although not quite as much as I'd hoped too.

This is what I'm working on!  Little treat boxes for Thanksgiving!  I die cut a bunch of pieces and assembled eight boxes today, then spent a chunk of time coloring little Thanksgiving themed images like turkeys, pilgrim mice, and pies that I will use to decorate them.  They can either just be treat boxes, or also serve as place cards at the family holiday table.  I did hit a little snag when it got to the actual decorating part though.  I couldn't decide which image, tag style, sentiment to use with what, and ended up calling it quits for the day.  I was sooooo hoping to get these done today because it really is almost too late to get these posted in the Etsy shop.  I'd hoped to have Thanksgiving cards made and listed by next week, and I don't even have any made yet.

I'm thinking of skipping Thanksgiving items for this year and jumping into Christmas stuff instead, get them up as soon as possible.

I already started working on these last week while waiting for my order of fall colored 12x12 papers to arrive.  These are gift card envelopes.  These are super cute and festive just as they are but I'm planning on decorating these a bit too.  I'm waiting on another order which has a set of little angel stamps and a set of little reindeer stamps that I intend on using for these.  And heck, gift cards are given more and more these days during the holidays so these little envelopes are perfect!

Minion was feeling a bit under the weather today.  He slept most of the day and threw up a few times this evening.  He didn't even want his canned food supper tonight!  Eventually though, he hacked up whatever was bothering him and then ate the canned food, and then went back to bed.  Hopefully it's nothing.  I mean, it was nice having him sleep and be out of my hair all day, but not if it was because he was sick.  Poor baby.

Well anyway, hubby's watching some dumb movie that I have no interest in (Baby Driver) so I'm heading up to read more of my Hex Hall companion novel.

Today I'm thankful for:
My hubby and his willingness to get supper from a local place because I was lazy and had nothing ready.  LOL

What are you thankful for today?


  1. I love days like that when Adam is willing to order out or just let us fend for ourselves when I am tired or stressed. I am looking forward to to your Christmas goodies. I hope you are having fun brainstorming things.

    1. I got my angel and deer stamps on Saturday and they're sooooo stinkin' cute! I stamped some out last night and started coloring them. I'm having fun with all finally! (Hope it lasts!)

      And poor hubby's getting frozen pizza tonight, again, for supper. We often have pizza if we're going to be watching football, but this time it's also because I want to keep working on Christmas crafts.
