New online magazine Swap from OLM and Secret Sister

Good monday ladies! Busy week ahead for me but wanted to drop in and say Hi! There is a new online magazine out with wonderful ideas for Holiday handmande gifts.Best part is the first issue is Free to check out.Some wonderful ideas for gifts especially if you're wanting to do less expensive and personal..... http://issuu.com/splendidlyhomemade/docs/winter2011 Old Lady Morgan recently held a ornie swap so wanted to share what I recieved..

Candy Canes from Carmen and the primcats,Salt Dough Snowman from Rachel Somewhere in the middle, Joy Sack from Eve Lee hill primitives, Gingerbread from Becky PrimitivesnStitching,Little prairie girl from Sew many girls. Oh and Marie sent kisses.So much fun getting a surprise.I left mine in the packages because I'm trying to hold of till the day after thanksgiving to pull the tree out.....Also wanted to share the goodies from my secret sister swap for November....

Thanks girls for everything..I'll be busy this week so much to do finshing up swaps,ornies,preparing for Thanksgiving,taking dad to appointments, Supposed to meet up with a man who says he has about 200 lbs of beeswax actually he says he has 600 lbs but is only willing to give up the 200lbs, Need to check out a storage clean out but not looking forward to it because I think it will be mostly new and import stuff I originally said no as I didn't want to but hubby said he wanted to go look, and general life stuff shopping, cleaning any one want to help with that? Shipping packages and the list goes on.Hubby ask yesterday what I was writing as I've started carrying a small notepad.I said to many things to do if I don't make notes I'll forget little things..smile..Hope you girls have a great week.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Have a great week Amy. Woo, I'm tired just reading your post. ;-)
Love your goodies. Better go get mine loaded to share too.
Thinking of you and hope you have a good week aside from all that is on your list.

I understand that need to carry a little notebook to jot things down so they aren't forgotten ... but sometimes by the time I get the notebook out of my purse I've forgotten what I wanted to write down! One thought seems to follow another so fast that I end up losing some : ) Thanks for the link to the new magazine ... am going to check it out now : ) Blessings, Shirlee

Christine said...

It's bound to be busy, busy, busy from now on - hope you take time to pamper yourself in there sometime, as you've got some list already!
Love all those swap goodies too!
Best wishes

Boy girl ~ you have a busy week ahead of you! I don't blame you for carrying a notebook ~ every morning I make myself a list of "to dos" for the day so I don't forget anything! lol :O)

Lorna/Live Oak Primitive Peddler said...

Have a great week and thanks again for checking on me.8-)

Ooooeee....I'd be in wax heaven...well, if I did wax...but bet you'll find tons of great things to whip up for us! ;o) Sweet ornies you received in the exchange...wish I were more creative - or at least more productive - would have been fun to join in. I, too, have an appt-laden week ahead. I hate that. Smiles & Monday Hugs ~ Robin

Kendra said...

Busy, busy. Good luck, hope you get everything done. I'll help you clean if you help me! Kendra

Don't forget to take some time for yourself ~ your such a busy gal!

Hi Amy :)
Such great ornies! Love them all. I am right there with you on making lists...my problem is I make so many, then I can't find them. I need to carry a little notepad around, great idea :O)
Have a great day~
Hugs! Stacy

You are wise to carry a notebook to keep track of it all! Those were some productive bees to make all that wax. It must smell wonderful. Looks like you'll have a wonderful, primitive tree with all those ornies. ~Roberta
