My To Do List - (From last week)
Create and print Christmas Cards (First i need to talk my kids into letting me take their picture) - Then send them out.
Okay, this is DONE. Now I just have to slap some addresses on some envelopes and send them in the mail. I was so inspired by a photo at twopeas by cbaase .. I finally talked (okay, bribed..LOL) my kids into letting me take their picture with duct tape on their mouths. (nope, it didn't hurt them, i didn't press it down, it was just sitting lightly on their faces.)
Here is my Christmas card of 2008
2. Finish up my new matchbox advent calendar
I WILL take photos of this today. LOL
Spray Paint Vase
Okay, tip... Just incase you ever want to Spray paint in the winter. Spray paint does NOT work in the cold! LOL Who knew? I didn't! I called my friend and started grumbling about my faulty can of spray paint that i just got all over my hands and she laughed. Apparently spray paint doesn't work when it is too cold, it just doesn't spray. Instead it was just pooling and running down the can. I made a mess, a really big mess. I will have to paint it with a brush instead.
4. Paint inside of back door (hopefully it is not too cold to do this?)
Going to wait til spring to do this.
5. Make a few more Christmas crafts, I haven't decided on what yet, any ideas for me?
My DH just went away for 5 days on a work trip. I have decided that I need to just give up on doing any more Christmas crafts this year. I don't think I will have time. I should have started earlier on this. Live and learn :)
6. Sort and Wrap Presents (We are all done with the kids! YAY!) This year i am wrapping early!
I got a TON of wrapping done and tonight, I am going to go finish the rest of my shopping. I have a couple things to get but, I plan on having most of my stuff wrapped and ready to go by the middle of the month. :)
7.Finish gathering anything else and figure out what in the world i am going to get my mom! My mom loves reading, I have decided that i will get her a gift certificate for the book store. I think that will be perfect, This way she can just pick out what she would like to read :) its also really easy for me! Mothers are so difficult to buy for! LOL
Time to get a move on now that I finished my breakfast. I only have 5 and a half hours til the kiddos come home from school and it is AMAZING how quickly those hours can FLY by! :)
