December 1, 2009

Good morning, and Happy Birthday Audrey. You can open your box now!! This poor child of mine. During the year, I will see something and my brain will kick in and say "This is just the thing for Audrey's birthday!!" So I buy it, and I send it to her with a note telling her that she cannot open it till her birthday comes round. But, by December of course, I've most likely already forgotten what it is. When she calls me to say "thank you," I say "You're welcome honey, can you remind me what it is?"

I used to keep track of everything in a little notebook, but since my "sometimerz" has kicked in, I forget where I put my notebook. You know, I think I've even forgotten what the word "organized" means. Oh, mind you, I'm not complaining. Sooner or later, I come across whatever it is that I forgot or misplaced. It just means that some birthday cards get sent a bit later than planned.

Let me tell you about my weird night. Yesterday afternoon, Tootsie and I had ourselves a little nap. Then we went to bed a bit early last night so that we curl up and watch a couple of programs. But of course, we fell asleep. Around midnight, we woke up and Tootsie promptly went to do the potty thing. After that, we wrapped and tagged gifts for a while, shopped a bit more on E-bay, had a bowl of fruit, and then went back to bed. Needless to say, we got up quite late this morning.

Speaking of E-bay, I have had a delightful time with it lately. I managed to pick up at least six Christmas gifts on it, and a couple of other things that I have been looking for. I would be a bit more explicit, but you never know who is reading my blog, and I don't to spoil any one's fun. I even managed to buy one gift that will be put in the drawer for next Christmas. See? I already have a start on my next year's shopping.

Because I got up so late today, I really must get going here and try to get a few things done. Let me show you a preview of the baby QP that I made for Maitri. I've left it quite plain so that she can add whatever trims she wants.

Next, I will post your freebie for today. It's a QP that I made with some wonderful brushes that were a gift, and I call it "Fantasy." Hope you like it. Y'all have a wonderful day now.
Hugs, Edna B.

I’m on lunch break right now, with a silly Kaline swiping at my typing hands from behind the laptop! She says “hi” to Tootsie!

I’m so jealous! I haven’t planed hardly a thing for Christmas yet! I’ll be finishing up draft one on my paper this afternoon. Once that’s one, I’ll walk away from it for a few hours and then come back to read and refine it. I’m a bona fide geek now. I’m doing y paper and getting excited about networking the computers in our house in January. :) Once my paper and thus, my semester, is done, it’s all holiday planning (and cleaning) for me! I’ll be having Cyber Friday this year!

You send the gifts with a do not open note?? That would make me crazy! Hehe I hope it’s a pleasant surprise when Audrey calls to remind you what it was!

Okay, back to my paper!

Lol- am I not getting that "do not open till Christmas"as well? No peeking she said, ha hah ! Seems to be catching- I did the same on Erik's present,lol-and that goes for yours as well. Glad to hear you're having a good time on e-bay,lol- sounds like you are really hooked to the site. I'll have a break now, tired after cooking, cleaning ,ironing and forum work - just payroll to do now, but that will have to wait until after I had an hour of chill out time now.
Hugs Snowy

I see the brushes and you did a lovely job. Oh, before I forget HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUDREY! I always have trouble to keep the presents a secret. I can keep it a secret but oh boy, it's sooo hard at times. So I always find somebody I can tell a bit about what I have found and that helps a lot LOL. Not open presentsbefore the day they they were supposed to? It's a hard thing to say Edna, but I really will do that. Although it will drive me nuts!
I overslept this morning really! Just sit at the computer for about 15 minutes! Oops, it did me good, but I hate it to wake up so late. I feel, like I missed a whole part of the day. Well, it just happens once in a while, so let it be. Now must get on, so you have a great day, glad you could use some of the brushes.

I love your Fantasy QP and my granddaughter will love it too when I put one of her great poses in it. Your blog also caught my attention really quickly. Your warmth and personality just sparkles and oozes out in it! Thanks for sharing!
