Christmas Holiday is over....

Hello Prim Pals!
I suppose after all the shopping trips, visiting friends & family, eating and gaining those few pounds, the holiday is officially over. Tomorrow, hubby goes back to work, the kids go back to school and I can finally get back to my routine. There's a few errands that I need to do first thing, but then I am planning to sit and sew the rest of the day. Yipee! I have quite a few orders to do plus a few special requests to start on. And it will be so nice!!!! My house is actually clean after putting away all the Christmas treasures and bringing out just Snowmen until I can decorate for Valentines Day.

Amity popped in this afternoon with Alex and Miss Elle for a short visit. She had a few Christmas things she didn't want anymore, so she brought them to me. I'll have to have a good look and decide what to do with them. Maybe Ebay or Craig's List? One thing she brought was a set of 12, square, paper mache Christmas boxes like I have in my dining room. Mine have been painted and sponged and her set was left as it came with allover stars and trees on top. They are pretty cool cause stacked up they are taller than me....I'm sure someone would love them if I can ever get around to painting them.

I ran across this picture today and wanted to share it. This is Cait (my younger daughter) and her boyfirend, T. That is actually his name.....not short for anything just T. She has turned out to be a wonderful young woman after

giving me a run for my money in her teenage years. We are so proud of her. And for all you Moms and Dads out there....there is hope. Just hang in there and therapy helps! LOL!

After going through yet another dreary day with times of sprinkles, periods of fog and just being chilly, I am sitting down with a cup of hot chocolate, propping up my feet with a cozy blanket and watching an old movie on TV. I'll let y'all know how things go tomorrow.................

Hugs,



ps I figured out how to get my signature here. Just would like for it to be a solid color, like black.....I really think it is the background color that throws it off...Still looking for someone to help me with some tweeking. Please feel free to contact me.

Hey Karen!
Just looked at my emails and it went in my junk folder.
I found the exact same instructions, I can get it in there with no problem, but it doesn't say anything about what to do when it isn't solid color. It's hard for me to explain. It's like the writing isn't a solid color. And I would prefer it to be black. When I made it in black it was really blurry looking.
Wish I could find someone to help me with it. I would pay them...
