Ewwww! It's snowing, big giant fluffy flakes. The roofs are all covered with a clean, white, fluffy layer of snow. OK--It's really pretty, lol! I'm not ready for snow. I HATE driving in the snow. I think it stems from the fact that I was such a late bloomer as far as driving goes--I didn't get my license till I was 31! So basically, I didn't learn to drive when I was young and fearless, but when I was older and more cautious. Whatever--it makes me anxious.

Guess what? I sold a planner yesterday--that cute brown and blue one with the dragonflies. So, I guess I'm not the ONLY old-timey gal who still uses a PAPER planner! lol This is my newest one--in pink and gray. Check out that pretty floral fabric. I was snooping around at an antique shop one day, poking around looking for cool old sewing stuff, and found it kinda smashed up in the corner, poking out from behind a basket of buttons. It didn't look like much, but it had potential and she only had it marked for $5 for about 2 yds of it. I brought it home and washed it up and pressed it--and it's gorgeous!! Yeah!!

Let's see what's on the to-do list today:::

1) Design a stocking for custom order--brand new little baby girl needs her Christmas stocking! She wants all pink, green, and white--I feel honored that she asked me to make it for her, to make something that will be part of her Christmas tradition. Yeah! It's going to be like this little ornament stocking, only bigger and fancier--and with some lace and her name embroidered on it OF COURSE!

2) Leslie, from AlphaStamps has sent me a big package of her new felts and collage images and wants me to put together some new ornament/Christmas designs for her to use on her website--samples of what people can do with the products she offers in her shop. This is a fun project and I look forward to jumping in to it.

3) Go around and change my avatars to this cute Christmas one that Sam made me! Isn't it adorable?!

4) Go to lunch with my sweety. He has the day off, and, he doesn't know it yet, but he's gonna take me to Mitch's for a big juicy burger! Oh, and HE is driving! lol

Have a fun day!!

Snowing? Oh it is a gorgeous warm day here. Wow I can't believe that! I love the planner cover you have made. I guess I never understood how one would know if the planner they purchased would fit in the cover? Does it only fit a certain brand of planner?? Maybe photos of the planner would be helpful!

Hi Joni!!! Oh, a gorgeous warm day sounds wonderful, sigh. We haven't had one of those for a while now.
As far as the planners go--I include the planner with the cover! There are pictures of it in my listing on ETsy. I just give a quick little peek of things here on my blog, I don't want to bore you all with the details! lol

Thanks for stopping by Joni--hugs!! Have a good weekend!

I zipped over to your Etsy and ordered the planner! That's a testament to how cute it is as I'd already bought a 2008 organizer this past August (I like being organized).

Anyway, there must be some happy medium to the weather. It's 90+ here in Tucson and you've got snow where you are--oh my, we are both at oppositie extremes weather wise. Enjoy your day!

Jenn Maruska said...

Oh, I always have a paper planner! I need to see it, touch it, circle dates with highlighters, Etc!!!

Congrats on the quick sale ; )

Haha. I love the new avatar Karen, very cute. I hate to say this, but it was 80 degrees here yesterday, eugh. Way too hot for me. I'm loving the Fall in Northern California though. So pretty. Have a great lunch. I'm hoping Nick accidentally went to work not knowing he had a day off.
