day 30 AEM (last day)

when i woke up this morning, i had a couple of crafty ideas & at 5:30 this morning, i went at it, hehehe.  i became a last minute partner for this canadian gal  in our current swap in the vintage tea room (which btw, in 2 weeks ***DECEMBER 15***we will be having our fabulous virtual holiday tea!!!  hope you can join us!)…& i thought of what to make this gal & dreamt the idea of making her some fabric postcards (which are quite popular these days).  she likes pink & i just happened to have some  fabric in that color  scheme. 🙂

i made 3 postcards this am (my last effort for AEM, boo* hiss* sniff* sniff).  i was so engrossed in my work that i lost track of time.  i was nearly late for class….but luckily my yoga instructor forgot her key to the building & had to wait for another person to come along & open the door for us.  anyhoo, here are the posties that made me (almost) late for yoga class:

i hope that my swap buddy will like these.  i plan to also add some sweet treats  for her to complete the package.

there’s a WINTER storm watch tonight & my dh has to drive in to chi-town  to see his elderly dad.  if i didn’t have too many things (like crafty wips & baking, to name a few) to do, i would have gone with him…  but i have a bunch of stuff i need to get done.  & if we are going to get a half of foot of snow like they are predicting we will, i’d much rather be in the comfort of my own home, than driving in nasty white-out conditions,  you know?  i told the hubby to stay put at his dad’s until the storm blows over.  he’s like,  okay, see ya on sunday

uh, the things we do for family, huh?!  welp, i just wanted to post this for AEM, which ends today.  i will miss participating…but not to worry, i will always be creating something…

speaking of which, my dear pal melanie tagged me for CREATIVE DREAMS meme….i want to respond…but i want to gather my thoughts.  PLUS, i just realized that since we will be potentially snow-bound tomorrow, i’d better make a quick trip to the grocery store because i know that when it is blizzard out, i don’t dare go out!

& i just realize, i’ve been procrastinating with whom to bestow the friendlybloggeraward.jpg…this is a DILEMMA for me, lol!   i cannot make up my mind on this!!!  i want to give it to ALL  MY PALS, lol!   waaah!!!  any suggestions??!

welp, i better git to the grocery store before everything gets cleaned out, hahaha!

in the meantime, have a safe, warm & snowy weekend! xoxo

  1. WOW- – I remember days of being snowbound when I lived in Buffalo New York….back then I Loved it because I was young and in college…did not have a care in the world – so snow bound was party time….lol
