Yesterday I was unplugged for the most part, I did check the internet from my phone, so I could check the score of the Packer game. I made HUGE progress on so many things – the biggest being the felt tent.
Giraffe Ornament – still needs eyes, nose and a hangerFINISHED!!!! The tree is decorated!
- Felt Play Tent – HUGE Progress on the play tent this weekend! Pictures of 2 of the sides pinned to the background. I have actually started sewing the engine to the background. I decided to hand sew the background because I HATE rethreading a sewing machine and changing bobbins. This is easier for me and I don’t have to pull out the sewing machine.
Grandma Presents – I am wood burning frames 1 is still in the wrapper the other is 75% done.I still need to stain them but I will do that soon. I don’t want to upload photos yet because I want Grandma’s to see them before Christmas.
- Coasters – TWO Sets Finished! Two more to go.
- Cookies – Ingredients bought nothing started
- Class party – I am making Gingerbread Men so the kids can decorate them (5 year olds + frosting = FUN!) I sent the letter out yesterday to remind the parents when the party is. I need to figure out snack food and supplies.
- Jeff’s Present – not started – looked for the Iron On Transfers but they still elude me. I also had another idea for him this weekend that I think I will also be doing.
- Jillian’s LPS House – STARTED!!! After my computer crashed (BIG TIME!) last night I decided to take my frustrations out on some Foam Core. I haven’t taken any photos yet because I was trying to get as much done as possible and I don’t want my daughter to even see the photos.
- Manatee – 50% done I did get more teal paint so maybe I will work on that this weekend.
- Christmas Cards – BOUGHT! Embellishment almost FAIL. I decided to buy 3 $1.00 pack of cards on Saturday. I thought they needed more “bling” so I added glitter. The cards were dry to the touch and I picked them up. 20 minutes later I sit down to write and they were almost glued together. So I had to redo the glitter making Manda very ANGRY! The cards are almost finished waiting on two addresses (and a Christmas letter) and I am giving them to today to get them to me (Jeff has till Friday!) If I don’t have the addresses today no Christmas card for them. Side note, if I buy 2 packs of cards and it says 16 cards and envelopes, I expect 16 envelopes not 12 or 13.
As for my computer it is amazing once you disable 1/2 of the VISTA programs, uninstall 1/2 of Adobe Master Suite CS3 and defrag how much smoother your computer runs
