Oh yes, no rest for the weary this time of year...baking for Thanksgiving, volunteering the entire weekend at a craft fair at the Hawaii United Okinawan Center to feed about 150 volunteers a day, meeting friends for lunch, making 2 Bucilla Christmas Felt Stockings for grand nephews in Ohio, sending off a goodie box to son in Seattle, making felt gift card holders for my pen pal friends in North Carolina, mailing etsy purchases (all 3 of them!! LOL), shopping at the Ala Moana Shopping Center, Pearlridge Shopping Center, multiple trips to Target and Walmart (buying stuffs & returning stuffs), so many hours perusing AMAZON, trips to fabric store to find fabric for my next HUGE holiday project (more on that later), going to craft fairs (of course), planning our annual Family Christmas party...whew!...I think I'll go back to bed now.
I did do one thing for myself the other day; going to Starbucks for tea and a gingerbread biscotti. Yes, it was nice to breathe a moment, and simply enjoy.
For now I leave you with my felt gift card holders....
