Avoid the mall shoppers. Don't do it. seriously.

Here's what the past 26 hours entailed.

12/19: 5:30-6pm Nailbiting ride through the snowstorm 30 min. to the Christmas party

12/19: 6pm
-11pm Christmas party where I drank 2 Whiskey sours and 6 glasses of wine. (surprisingly enough, not totally hung over) and danced so much that I managed to get a blister on the bottom of my big toe and my knees hurt so much that I almost fell down the stairs this morning after I got out of bed.

12/20 7:30am-10am woke up, drank many many cups of coffee,played
Return to Ravenhearst until I got completely stuck and agitated, showered

10am- 1:30pm- Braved the mall like a complete idiot but the trick was to repeat this in my head the whole time: Stay Calm, Carry On. Bought 3/4 of what's left of our Christmas shopping.

1:30-2pm- ate lunch - first meal o
f the day, and was famished. 2pm-3:30pm- Wrapped all gifts, tags and ribbons and all.

3:30pm- 4pm- laundry, lunch
clean up, bathroom clean up

4:20-6:30- Went to the movies with my friend and saw
Four Christmases. Pretty funny movie, definitely recommended.

6:30-7:30- pizza

Yesterday I finished this gift (hopefully the receiver is not reading this blog):
I also made this bracelet and this pair of earrings:

I also made this necklace: Today in the mail I received 2 more gifts from Laurie at Old School Acres- hopefully the recipients aren't reading this blog as well) done. til tomorrow. adios amigos.


  1. I agree with you on the mall thing - we ran into 3 of the oddest people just at Macy's alone! Loud, rude, etc..

    Love the new pieces!

  2. You are a very, very brave girl. Either that or compleately NUTS!!!!!

    Love the owl - what a treat!


  3. Wow! Your work is just so pretty. The people on your Christmas list are very lucky. Happy Holidays :)

  4. It feels like there are at least 20 hours more in your days than in mine. I'm impressed.

  5. Lovely new designs and gifts! Happy Holidays, Lorelei! Enjoy!


I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
