What are your holiday plans today?

I am peddling French baskets and notions from 10~2 today at the Willows Holiday Market and hope to see you there!

Later on tonight the Fashionista and I (along with every other woman in Phoenix) will be attending Crafeteria. My hope is to get there right at 6 pm so I can see all of the wonderful merchandise, as I know things will sell fast and furiously.

This weekend I have plans to clean my house, find Christmas, have a date night at El Chorro with my hubby and study for finals. (I have two on the 9th.) I can’t  wait for school to be over so I can visit all of my favorite people (you) once again.

Be blessed dear ones,

Today I am making pillows and cleaning. I've been decorating for the house tour we are on next weekend and it's crunch time!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend and get lots of studying done!

My holiday plans for today include mailing my Christmas cards and attending the Surprise Christmas Party at the Surprise stadium with my family tonight. I attended last year and it was such fun... like a small town event. This weekend, let the baking begin!

The crafeteria sounds like so much fun! Good luck on your finals!

I'm getting ready for my craft show tomorrow & another one on Wednesday!

Destiny said...

I wish you luck at your holiday show AND with your finals! I really need to get my Christmas cards done and maybe make a few Christmas crafts with my daughter this weekend...I have the entire weekend OFF! I'm so excited! Have fun this weekend! : )

After I finish work, I'm going to hop on the bus and head for my favourite florist and my favourite garden centre. I hope to find some inspiring Christmas greens, branches, cones and berries. And maybe a wreath. Then I'll walk a few blocks to a beautiful store that sells wrapping paper, etc., and pick up a few more gift bags. By then, my arms will be full, so I'll hop on another bus and go home, where I'll listen to Christmas carols and dress up my potted amaryllis and paperwhites with branches.

Tomorrow morning I'll create my outdoor urn. And in the afternoon I'll head over to my friend Vern's to bake cookies and watch hockey (Canada's national pastime - the hockey-watching, not the cookie- baking). Ahhh, heaven.

Today's plans are to continue cleaning in prep for decorating, as well as prepping for a late-night dinner after the kids' choir concert tonight. Hoping that kicks off my Christmas-celebrating-urge, because so far it's been missing!
Hope you have fun! May exams go WELL!

Still battling laryngitis but at least I'm feeling energetic now after being sick for so long. Today, we'll drive daughter to her Dads for the weekend and Jim and I will have a weekend to ourselves, grocery shopping, lunch out, a little bit of gift shopping (on his part, since I'm done), and oh yea... wrapping. Not my favorite thing, but he has agreed to help me. Daughter's birthday is next week, so we have all of the prep for that this weekend.

Hope everything goes well with your finals! This is the first year of school for daughter where I've heard this word. They're also coming up and I'll just be happy if she makes it through this semester. That would be the best Christmas gift of all. ♥

Have a nice weekend.
Love, Linda

Have you missed me??? Somehow I wasn't following some of my blogs and didn't realize it!!! Now I have to catch up on what I missed!

I am putting the tree up this weekend and maybe wrap what presents I have bought!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I hope sales are really excellent today, because then you could hop a flight for Orange County tomorrow en famille; we are having a Christmas Tree lighting and visit from Santa right on the sand at 3pm. The tree is right at the water's edge. It will be terrible fun!!!! I just started my decorations this morning, dipped a toe in the water so to speak.

My holiday plan today is to collect as many pincones and greens as I can. I want to do a simple decorating with pincones, berries and greens, maybe some glittering ornaments. That's it. Then invite some friends over for a simple gathering dinner sometimes soon. Happy Holiday to you and your family!
