i didn't say it had to be a GOOD plan!) :) :) :)
hello, darlings and happy thursday! are you having a nice december so far? mine has been excellent... but a bit hectic... and kind of short on the blogging, for which i apologize. at the moment, i'm all about writing out and mailing holiday cards! wouldja like to see the cool address label i made? (please say yes, k, 'cause it's the only crafty thing in this post!)
i used anna aspnes' retro christmas kit and snow spray brushes #3 from o'scraps, plus katie pertiet's clipped journalers stacks and inked flakes from designer digitals. (if you happen to need a label, i'd be happy for you to g'head and snag some of these to use on your cards or packages!)
some other stuff i've been doing this week:
enjoying the unseasonably warm and spring-like weather here in the northeast this week... it was 60+ degrees on monday and tuesday!!!
attending the members' preview of the astonishingly cool new matisse exhibit "in search of true painting" at the metropolitan museum of art.
catching up (belatedly!) on the last season of the closer and the first season of major crimes; totally impressed by the quality of acting and writing in both.
crocheting lots and lots (and lots!) of twinkie chan's delightful cupcakes.
visiting my second "specialist" dentist of the year, to get the second half of my implant/crown thingie completed. (if you've got a minute around 4:30pm, darlings, i sure could use a few "good dental vibes"!!!)
treating myself to one of krispy kreme's luscious red velvet doughnuts.
walking extra miles on the treadmill at the gym or-- as a special treat in yesterday's warm-for-december temps-- OUTSIDE (oh the luxury!) to counter-act the "doughnut effect"!
drinking in the gorgeous christmas decorations of fifth avenue with my mom on our annual "christmas windows tour" of manhattan. (i'll do a whole post on this, next week!)
driving to (just plain) york, pennsylvania, this saturday to celebrate our eldest niece jessica's 21st (!!!) birthday!!! ♥♥♥
planning a visit to longwood gardens to see the holiday finery later this month with lovely husband jeff's lovely parents.
buying our christmas tree on sunday; so far i don't have a "scheme" for decorating it, so i'm thinking we'll go with the special ornaments jeff and i both have collected from childhood to the present. i'll post some photos when it's decorated.
so what have ♥YOU♥ been doing this week? whatever it may be, i hope you've had a bit of fun doing it! ♥♥♥
