Baby it's Cold Outside!!

Baby it's been a little cold here in New Hampshire!! Saturday night snow fell and left a beautiful blanket of fresh fallen snow. After church on Sunday the girls and I went out to try to build a snowman, but the snow wasn't sticky enough, so they did the best they could and he turned out really cute....
Been so busy since I came home from my mom's in Maine for Thanksgiving, the day after I got home I started working part time at a Pool store/scrapbooking store, so I have been very busy and I haven't even done my Christmas Cards yet...!!!! Christmas is right around the corner. boy...
Today I have my Ladies Quilt Group Christmas Party at my house, so I have been rushing to decorate and clean and I still need to make a homemade item to exchange...ahhhhh but I know I will be done way before they get here.
Happy Holidays,
Peggy Lee

Glitter is a flying!!!

The glitter was flown onto the floor for little miss kittie to run through it!! Glitter world I have been busy in, getting ready for the holidays, and working on some new artwork.

Christmas tag/ornament made from a coaster from our local rest. 99 which I turned into cuteness!! This could go on a tree, or gift or be a present itself.

Alot of work to prepare, 40 kits that had to be put together, alot of cutting, inking, stamping, shopping for last minute items.

What to Make?

Today started out chilly and a little snow fell, with that today is our Quilt Group Gathering and I am trying to figure out what to make, or start or where to begin. I need to start on my Christmas Homemade, Handmade Gifts and some new decor for our new home. And I am drawing up blanks, I think it's because my plate is full, to much going on at once and this Holiday Season is already filling up fast. I can't believe it is November already, Christmas is in 49 days Oh My!!
Well I need to go find a project to start, finish working on my Scrapbook Workshop that is next week and I have a sick kid home today. Wow it starts....Watch out there might be snow in the morning. ahhhh

sick of being sick

just a short note, the title speaks for it all....
Monday I felt fine, had a stamping class, created all day, then Tuesday woke up with a cough and sore throat, fever. Wednesday woke up fine nothing, was I dreaming, my chest still felt heavy but no cough. Thursday fine all day, stamped enjoyed friends, cooked a roasted chicken dinner great evening stamped some more.
This morning couldn't wake up over slept my man didn't get his morning coffee, came down stairs with my pillow and slept some more on the sofa my poor girls (teenagers) got themselves to school. I stumbled to the coffee pot, now the cough is back worse, sore throat, ears hurt, very tired. I am so sick of this.
That's what my week has been, I am going to try to make some salt dough snowmen heads today hopefully....

Where did my time go?

This morning I had some free time so I decided to look at my blog, wow I haven't posted in a long time, please forgive me for neglecting my blog, I have been very busy. Which is no excuse but I know my prim friends will understand. I have been looking for a job, money is very tight and we just got me a new car (well old but new to me) I have been without a car for 4 months so I am very happy but with that now we have a house payment and two car payments oh and teenagers. Anyway I have been applying for jobs but no calls, which stresses me out my husband says we will be fine honey, so I had coffee with a dear friend and she said Peggy you have great talent and stuff to create you need to start selling your stuff and we need to travel and do some craft shows, I agree so I am going to embark on that task and if God blessing me with a job that will be great, I also teach crafting workshops which I need to schedule some and get busy. I know I will not get rich but it's the extras that kill me, because we can't but God has always supplied our needs and we are greatful for that. And continue to rely on Him.

Ok to update you with some pics of my busy two weeks:

The first pic is the fall table runner I made for a show-n-tell for my quilt group, love the pumpkins. The next one well is our baby Sasha and she keeps us busy and drives our other two cats nuts, the other day I was sweeping in the living room ran my broom under the sofa and out flying by was a dead mouse and dust bunnies, she hid the mouse under the sofa to hid it from the other cats who never go under there. I was not happy to pick it up, but ways glad she killed it. Then last week we woke up to a winter wonderland, a snowstorm it was beautiful but way to early it didn't last. The last pic is of my husband and Emilee walking into the apple orchard we went to get apples it was a very dark and deary day oh and very cold.... but I do love this pic I am planning on making it black and white. More to share when I get my thoughts together and a project to share. thanks for stopping by.
