Makin' my list...checkin' it twice....

Check one thing off the Christmas "to-do" list (almost): the family photo card is completed. In the time I had yesterday afternoon, I cranked these out. I like how the photo looks with the color scheme. I included a self-tying bow (one without a knot at the base and which has little to no waste), attaching each with a glue dot. I want to write a short synopsis of the year to attach to the back, but this and addressing the envelopes, which are also stamped, will complete the project.

I'm trying to kick back a bit tonight and breathe, but it's hard. I have letters to cut for a bunch of dvd tins I was contracted to make. The addition of the initial really completes the look, thought, so I'm glad to do them.

I also am hosting the dinner portion of a progressive dinner Sat. night, and I want to get some (I'm not going to kill myself, trust me!) decorations out and clean the house a bit. (At dinner, Bob broached the subject of not putting up the Christmas tree this year, and Michael's response was "atheism". I think this was his 13-year-old way of saying "heresy"!, so I guess we'll be putting it up at some point. Call me Scrooge, but it seems sort of pointless when we're not here for the week of the holiday.) Bob will help, so I guess all that can happen tomorrow night and Sat. afternoon after I work. I know, I know--BREATHE!!! I'm tryin'!
