It's the day before Thanksgiving...

It's the day before Thanksgiving and the prep work is on! Today I'll spend some time preparing for tomorrow. I'll be baking our pie, cutting up celery and onions, preparing the dry ingredients for the stuffing, and just double checking to make sure we have everything! I love Thanksgiving. It is a very laid back day for us even with the prep of an entire, large dinner. Todd and I are also very excited to get the sale flyers in the paper tonight...can't wait to see what we can't live without! NOT!! I wish we had a Wal-Mart closer than 45 minutes away because there are a couple of things I'd like to get there!

I did a little stamping yesterday. I joined an ATC (Artistic Trading Card) swap on SCS. I've been a bit afraid to try this little cuties because...well, they are new to me. I joined this specific swap because of two reasons...1. they needed one more person and 2. it's a technique ATC card swap. That means when I get my swaps back each of the cards will have a different technique with directions on how to do it on the back. That will give me more resources for my stamp club! These are a very cute 3 1/2 X 2 1/2 size and fit perfectly into Stampin' Ups! On Board ATC Book in the Holiday Mini. Can't wait to show everyone! So...would you like to see what I did? It's very simple because I really wanted the faux mother of pearl to show. I used the new Like It A Latte set from the Winter Mini. The colors are Close to Cocoa, Regal Rose, Glossy White, and Whisper White. I also used Stickles glitter glue on the candy cane and the sprinkles.

Over the next couple of days I need to prepare for my Hostess Appreciation Brunch on December 2nd. We are also doing a gift exchange so I have to get my persons gift done and help a club member do her stuff too. It's gonna be busy but fun!

Oh, I have to share...I closed a VeggieTales Mom show last night and although it wasn't a huge one I helped a couple of people get a great deal! We have right now a special for a DVD that has both of the VT Christmas movies on it. The cost is $ buy both movies it would be almost $30. It's a steal! With that deal both ladies where able to buy even more with their money which is a great idea this time of year! We have some really neat stuff for Christmas this year! Go check it out at

Okay, ladies...I'm off and running for the day! I'm not sure if I'll be blogging tomorrow with all the prep and stuff but go ahead and check back 'cuz you just never know!
