20 of 20

Sad. Only 20 days left of my twentys. Blah. I'm so not looking forward to turning 30. And, at least if I HAVE to turn 30, I wish that Bryan was here to celebrate with me. Unfortunately, I probably won't be doing much of anything on my birthday. Maybe that's good though...I can roll quietly into my 30's, and just try to pretend it isn't happening. LOL!

I am finally finished with all of my gifts that need to be mailed out. Yay! My last trip to the post office will be tomorrow. I finished up these sparkly pretties...



I filled the acorns up with yummy chocolates, and the pinecones with some pretty old-fashioned hard Christmas candies. They wil be on their way tomorrow to a couple of lucky ladies.

I spent the rest of the afternoon working on filling up my Christmas idea book. It felt so good to finally purge all those stacks of magazines that I have been saving. I clipped what I wanted, pasted it into my book, and deposited the remnants of the mags in the trash. Ahhhhh...! Such a good feeling to actually get something accomplished! I even bit the bullet and finally submitted to a couple of design teams. We'll see how that works out. It's been a while since I've done one.

Well, I'm off to stalk Poppy Ink for the limited number of Silverbella kits that are supposed to be going up for sale in a few minutes. Happy Thursday!

I love whenever I get to completely tear through a magazine and paste all the clippings in my inspiration notebooks. Feels SO good!

I got my card in the mail! Thank you I LOVE it! You are the queen of the cute crafties chica. Its even cuter in person (and I got my favorite style!). Thanks for the pics too. =0)

Hope you are having a good day. I'm sorry you have to celebrate the dreaded 30 by yourself. I have started my countdown to, what a shock it was to realize a couple of weeks ago I was 100 days from it! =0(

Your acorns are beautiful. How did you do those?

I totally missed the silver bella kits at PI. I'm sure the banner will be amazing...anything from Heather usually is!!

Think positive about turning 30...it's really not that bad. I have loved my 30's. I'm getting ready to hit the down slope soon (I'll be 36 in January - YIKES). But hey...it's all in the attitude :-)
