AaatteeeeeeeennnTION! Company HALT!

Things are finally starting to wind down on the Christmas front. I am officially on holidays until the new year. For the first time in my life, I am prepared to not have to spend the week before Christmas busting my hump to get everything done. I have two gift left - one is cash, the other is a gift certificate. Then I just have to wrap. Shouldn't be too horrible an experience, I don't think.
On an exciting note, Rachel is now officially a Master Corporal. Yay you!!! So happy and excited and proud for you. CONGRATULATIONS MCpl Tops. You do Canada proud. She sent a couple of pictures but I don't want to post them without her permission so, if you keep checking in, I am sure they will be on her blog sooner or later.
In scrapping news, I met up with Meg and Renee at St├ęphanie's class on Wednesday. Had a great time and so many laughs! Not to mention the creativity that started flowing with ideas for our Donna Downey weekend in April. I can not wait!!
For those about to embark on their holiday trips, travel safe, stay warm and celebrate merrily. Happy Holidays to you all

T'was the Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas,
And all through the home,
Only one creature was stirring,
A late night scrapper alone.
While she cropped and she trimmed,
Under her breath she was muttering,
"He hid my darn Hermafix",
The poor wife was stuttering!
When out on the lawn,
There arose such a clatter,
She sprang from her table,
And dropped her Magic Matter.
Away to the window
She flew like a flash
Thinking maybe it was UPS
Bringing more for her stash!
But what to her wandering eyes
Should appear
But a miniature (die cut) sleigh
And eight (punchie) reindeer!
With a little old driver
So lively and quick
She knew right away
It was Jolee old St Nick
He carried a sack
Filled up to the brim
With paper packs, cardstock
And templates crammed in.
There were punches, and stickers
And eyelets galore
There was even a Sizzix font
Not yet in the stores!
He went quickly to work
Storing it all under the tree
The wire, the fibres
And all acid free!
"Those whale Punches are heavy"
She heard him exclaim
Then he turned to his reindeer
And called them by name:
On Buyer and Stasher
Puncher and Cropper,
On Scrapper, on Matter,
On Trimmer, On Cutter"
And he sprang to his sleigh
But before he could leave,
The woman yelled "STOP",
And pulled a camera from her sleeve
She snapped some quick photos
For future keepsake,
Thinking all the while,
Of the layout she'd make!
And she heard him exclaim,
When she finally let him go,
"Happy Scrapping to All"
And to all "HO HO HO"

Sometimes things just make you wonder ...

Like when you think something is one thing only to realize down the road that maybe it wasn't really what you thought it was in the first place. And then, finally, more things happen and open it all up for debate. Then the imagination runs wild and questions pop in and out of heads which are either a reality of truth or fiction but you will never really know. I hate it when life hits you in the face. (how's that for some Monday Morning 'food for thought') :o)

Boston Bruins 7, New York Islanders 2

Here are a few of the photos that I took from the game. What great seats we had. Fabulous!! Unfortunately there was no aquariam. We got lost one too many times that weekend and, when he missed the turn off, we just headed home - - but not without a stop in Salem New Hampshire, first. A quick stop at Michaels found me some goodies, including a new Cuttlebug. It's not something I would pay full price for but, with the 50% off coupon and the lower US price, I walked away with one. In haste, I grabbed two die folders for it. When I was at AC Moore, I tool a bit closer of a look and bought 3 more. Turns out two of the were the ones I picked up at Michaels. DUH! So, I have the D'vine Swirl and the Spots & Dots available for trade if there are any takers. (they were $5.50 USD) I would really like to get a couple of the Christmas dies but can't find them. (I havent checked the Scrapbox yet) If anyone can give me a heads up, I would be thankful.
Happy Thursday. One more day until the weekend. Am I the only one who didn't think this week would even end?
