"Alice's Restaurant Massacre" on Mike Putman
(aka jack and cat curio) blog play list.
The perfect end to a Thanksgiving day, thanks Mike!
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
This morning I do believe I finally got the last of Thanksgiving paraphernalia put back where it belongs. All the "stuff" you only pull out once or twice a year, so you have to get down on your hands and knees to put it away. We had such a house full for dinner, a lot of the furniture had to be moved. Of course that leads to a cleaning while you are at it. I have started bringing out Christmas decorations and trying to remember how I displayed them last year.
Now it's time to get back to making my Christmas cards...yes I do know I'm cutting it kind of close!
The cat beat me to my table... she is right on top of the glitter!

I'm going to pass it along to ...
An designer from Scotland. She always has such lovely mixed media art on her site, it's fun to see what she will do next.
Is just getting started in the blog world, and really working it! She designs (among other things) these great Palo Verde Gals. And Lisa lives in Gilbert so that makes us neighbors.

We were talking about my Mystic Paper Design Team project for November. The paper in my kit was all soft pastels, perfect for all the spring, baby and wedding ideas. But I went way out of the box and came up with a Christmas album. That's right PINK for Christmas. Before you say "she has really gone too far with this idea"... have you seen the front cover of Scrapbook Etc. for November/December. The Christmas layout is in PINK and green.
The front cover of Romantic Homes magazine...PINK for Christmas. So we are going PINK! And who doesn't love all the sparkly glitter this time of year?
Yes, the album is loaded with glitter. I know what you are thinking...wouldn't this be a great gift for your aunt-cousin-secret sister-coworker-neighbor. And you are right, it would be! Heck it would look wonderful sitting on your coffee table for your friends and family to woo and aah over while they are visiting during the holiday season. Come on! You can do this...just think PINK

My monitor kicked the bucket! I've unplugged, jiggled, shook and pounded on it, and it's not coming back. Yes I am very much annoyed...and that is putting it nicely. The good thing is my husband had the for site to buy an extended warranty, so "they" are sending us a new one, eventually. It's pretty sad when you have you call and ask somebody if you can use their computer so you can post a blog! I'm at my Aunt Louesa's house using her computer. You remember Aunt Louesa from the "Family Connection" post. I get to post and have a nice visit too. As soon as the monitor comes in , and DH has it hooked up, I'll show you the Sugar Plum Christmas book. In the mean time you can catch part of it at the Mystic Paper blog site.
