Before I begin today, I just want to let everyone know about my Holiday Sale! All orders from now until the end of the year (or until I run out) will get a free pair of earrings. And if you use coupon code NACHO20, you'll get 20% off your order. That includes clearance items as well as patterns. So what are you waiting for, go buy handmade this year!
Well that was a long and relaxing weekend. I know, I know, how could it have been a relaxing weekend, are you kidding me, it was Thanksgiving. The first time of the season that hoards of family and friends get together to gorge themselves on food and get into arguments over which is the best ball team. Oh, but not for us. We stayed home and hid from our family and friends. Well sort of, we did have a friend come over Wednesday and Thursday to eat our food and watch MST3K with us. But that was it. J's really close to being done with school (two weeks until his final project and three weeks until he graduates), so there was a lot of homework that needed to be done. And I had to go into the lab and collect media (it was as fun as it sounds). So no craziness for us. That will just have to wait until Christmas time (we normally have between 6-7 Christmas parties/dinners to go to).
I did get a little bit more work done on Christmas gifts. I now have the beadwork for three of them done, that only leaves three more to go. I can do this. What else? I finished up my latest custom order, well I finished up two of them. I finished up the leather gauntlet (photos soon) and I finished up a guitar string bracelet. Now I'm just waiting for the final okay, and this pretty thing will be on it's way to it's new home.
I also got a little bit of work done on my "left overs" blanket. This blanket is made out of all the yarn I have left over from other projects. It's taking me a long time to make, but that's okay. I like working on it.
And of course, the Christmas tree is up. Yay! I love the Christmas tree. It makes me so happy. I wish I could leave it up year round. Unfortunately, the lights in my tree topper aren't working, even though I replaced them last year. So I'll have to fiddle with that to see if I can get it working.
So how was everyone else's holiday weekend? Did you have a big get together? Did you brave the crowds and go shopping? I'd love to hear what everyone else did. :-)
