Lazy!

I need to get back to the school day schedule or I am going to be one grumpy mom in January. I have taken to staying up late reading and sleeping in late. And I am not sleeping very well. It could be all the junk I have been eating.


And I have not done one single creative thing in weeks. I didn't even make my own gift tags. Nope, just cut the fronts off old cards and used them, dug really deep in the gift wrap accessories box and found tags I had stamped about 3 years ago. And I am almost out of gift wrap...which brings up another thing. When did gift wrap get so darn thin? I used to buy the nice stuff at Michaels, so about 3 years ago, it was so thick. Then with each year it got thinner and thinner. Now when I wrap a box, the corners of the box tear the paper. I have put off replenishing my stock because it seems most papers are as thin as what I already have. I am thinking of making my own gift bags out of fabric to use next year. We'll see, I like sewing about as much as I like getting a tooth pulled.


I lied. I did do one creative thing...I finished the calendars for the grandparents. They turned out great and everyone loved them. Even with doing most of the layouts digitally, the thing weighs a tonne. Good thing I had so many pictures of Sally. Those darn kids of mine are so uncooperative when the camera comes out.

Way to go Kelli, congrats on finishing the calendar. And I know what you mean about wrapping paper. We bought a couple of huge rolls from Costco that seemed to be really thick. NOT. And now we've got enough to last the next 10 years...
