On Sundays this month, I am the guest designer over at Christmas Card Challenges. It has been such a pleasure to make cards for this wonderful challenge site! Today's challenge is to incorporate holiday travel into your card. There was one journey that immediately popped into my head:
I have to apologize for not being around much lately and for posting things a little late. I have been working almost full-time - and loving every minute of it! And I'm really glad to say that my job went from seasonal to permanent. That is a huge blessing and I am so thankful! What it doesn't leave a lot of time for is reading blogs and crafting. But this is just for a bit. I am quite certain that after the first of the year, I will be getting less hours, and I'll be right back to crafting every day. For now, I cram it all into one or two days, so you'll see spurts here and there. Other than the osteoperosis in my hips, I am also thankful to say that my health is really good and I'm able to work with no problems. That's such a blessing - thank you, Father!
Shane is loving school, and he has already learned how to keep my short hair trimmed. He was born for cosmetology - and it shows. He wakes up excited to go to school every day, and Jerry and I love seeing that! His future is definitely looking exciting!
I am happy to say that I am finishing up my cards tomorrow, and they will be going out in Tuesday's mail. Nothing like the last minute, huh? I thought rather take my time than hurry through, so that each one is special. So this year, late is better than never! That's why I love Christmas Card Challenges so much. Next year, I will be completely on top of this thanks to that challenge blog! But just ot let you know how behind I am this year, I'll let you know that Jerry and I started and finished our Christmas shopping today. It was a full day, but it was relatively easy. It was a sunny warm winter day, and the stores and mall were quite festive. And it's always a pleasure to spend a day out with my hubby!
I hope to catch up with all of you this week. In the meantime, please know that I am sending happy Christmas wishes your way!
