Tis this Season is Full of Snow.. YUCKIE

Hey all we are under a snow storm advisory here and some places are closer to a blizzard than snow storm. We are staying home for the most part. We will go shopping this afternoon after Jeff gets home from work. I have become a little more intuned to x-mas but not much over the last week..

Not going over board with the girls this year but they are getting a few things and then they are getting some stuff that grandma sent money for this year.. Again there is no tree up. No garland this year. I found a beautiful White Tree for like a hundred dollars and I just cant afford it. I wanted it so bad. But Jeff is afraid of Snowie trying to lay in the branches again this year like she did with the old tree.

Damned Cat..LOL.. I love her but she is in the way sometimes.. I was hoping to make some sales this month on etsy and havent done even that.. That sucks but I have ordered a few things that were cheap enough. I am having two skirts made for the girls. I wanted something with a poodle skirt look but not all the material. So a lady i know is making them with red velvet and black fur trim for me. They are going to be 15 dollars each and t hen shipping is going to cost me 8 dollars..

Then I ordered some hand made soap yesterday for some gift baskets I am making for the ladies that work on my shift. I should do something for the guys but half of them dont talk to me so why should i? I am just doing it because I feel I need to share what I can do.. I am putting one scrunchie, two facial scrubbies and one small bar of soap in the gift bag..

Anyway we have lots of snow coming and I am looking forward to the skirts when they are done. They are going to be red velvet with black fur trim and I will buy the turtle necks I want to go with them. My x-mas cards are goign to be late this year because i am waiting for the skirts to come before I have the photo's done.

Was going to have a friend of mines mom make them but she wanted me to buy the material and then charge me 15 dollars a piece for the skirts.. I know material isnt cheap.. and I know time is precious but come on.. Anyway I am just waiting like usual.. I need to get to some stuff around the house..

House hold duties calling me to clean, clean and more clean and I have no ambition today to do so but might as well get it done.. lol.. So I am off but thought I would post something before going and cleaning.. I will post photos of the snow later if I remember too..

I won't be doing cards at all - again.

Christmas has way too many expectations attached to it these days. Advertisers give the impression that if you don't spend a fortune, you don't care about your loved ones. They are just wrong.

I am with Jeannie. I'm not doing cards either, and I can't seem to get motivated to even to any baking. And since it's just me, I'm not bothering with a tree. I don't see the point.

Hope you have a good weekend, Tweets. We're supposed to get a big dump of snow here, too. UGH!

I've seen pictures of people who hang their trees upside down from the ceiling to discourage their pets from messing with them.

Wow my dear sounds like your the busy one. The baskets sound very nice!

Hope you're having a wonderful day!

The skirts sound so cute - I can't wait to see a photo! Oh, I am having a mess with cards - I better put on list to do fast - at least Chuck's relatives - I made some cards with photos of art work that I was going to put in gallery and sell. Then I realized it was costing more to make the cards than I could probably sell them for. This will take some investigation how to pull it off next year!

Lucky ladies at your work to get the baskets - what a good idea....
