Cyber Monday

I think cyber Monday is today.  Am I right?  I really don't find much that I am interested in buying at greatly reduced prices on any of these special shopping days.  I am going to start putting some things into a wish list on Amazon so DH has some shopping ideas.  I have grown to like Amazon and the quick shipping.

Black Friday Shopping

Did you go out shopping on Black Friday?  I really don't have anyone to shop for except DH so neither one of us venture out on black Friday.  There is too much traffic and waiting in lines.  Most of our shopping is done online now.  So easy.

Thanksgiving Nears

Most schools now have the entire week off for Thanksgiving and families are on their way to family or vacation spots.  If you are one of them, travel safely.

Deer in the Snow

This is the same deer that I have used on a few of the other cards I have posted.  The die set it is in has so much in it.  Along with the deer there is the sled and decorative layer for the sled, and a Christmas tree.  There's also a bow, a teddy bear, a wreath, and a stocking.  I haven't used any of those little pieces yet.

Dunedin Show

This weekend we will be in Dunedin at the Methodist Church on Main Street.  In addition to this show at the church, there is a very large show on Main Street.  We decided to give the smaller show a try.  Dunedin is what I think of as little Scotland on the Gulf Coast.  The name comes from Dùn Èideann, the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. There is a Highland Festival each year and many bagpipe groups.  Some Irish influences as well.  So we have lots of Celtic things for this show.

Santa's Sled

This card involves a lot more work than you would think, but still an easy card to make.  In order to make the sled, I first made a gold sled with runners and repeated with red.  Then I made the gold fancy layer of the sled.  I cut the runners off the red sled and attached it to the gold sled.  The next step was to add the fancy layer.  The sled parts, tree, and deer are all part of one Stampin Up die set.  The background is also a SU folder.

This weekend is a busy one for us.  On Saturday we will set up at St Tim's in Lutz.  After tearing down we will head to Coachman Park in Clearwater to set up for the Sunday show there.  Sunday is Christmas Under the Oaks.

Breakfast Day

Once a month we go out to eat breakfast with a group of our retired math teacher friends.  Today was a breakfast day.  Of course people ask how our shows are going and I was telling them about the teapot panels.  It is hard to get them to visualize so I looked on our blog for a picture to show them.  There was non to be found so I guess I haven't blogged about them before.  So here is one of the teapots made from a glass plate.
