Merry Christmas to Letterboxer's, Geocacher's, and All my Swap-Bot friends

I hope you have all had a great year at the game(s) of your choice, I know I certainly did during the parts of it I was well. I am looking forward to 2010 being an awesome year without too much real life getting in the way!

I will be offline later today as we move but hope to be back up by late tonight or tomorrow sometime as withdrawals will be starting by then!

Merry Christmas!

I just had the most fun night I have ever had since I got ill 4 years ago!

Last night we went to the Festival of Trees Gala Dinner and Auction to help support the arts in the community. It included a silent and a live auction (I donated a very small basket of my handmade ornaments to the silent auction and the winning bid was $60, I was blown away as I was hoping that they would at least get $20 for them. It was so cool to see bidding on something I made!

I ended up winning 4 items in the silent auction and this wreath that is so beautiful in the live auction. In the live one, I thought some one had out bid me and I had reached the end of my budget so I resigned myself to not getting it and then all of a sudden the auctioneer called sold on my number and I was astounded! I have taken a picture to show you but the picture doesn't do it justice, It is unbelievably beautiful in real life.

The 4 things I also won were 2 identical little mug/hot choc, and goodies baskets, they were very inexpensive and 2 medium size gift baskets that were about half their retail price. I now have most of my Christmas shopping done as I opened the baskets and there are things I can use for all sorts of family members. I figure combining this stuff with the $150 worth of merchandise that have on my Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum points card, I should have 95% of my Christmas shopping done.

There was this coolest purse made from recycled wrappers (misprints and overstock that would have been thrown out otherwise and it is so beautiful with all its bright colours, I have a picture of that of it too.
It was such a fun evening, in fact, I had forgotten it was possible to have that much fun! Of course, afterward, we went outside and it was snowing like crazy and reality came crashing back! LOL!

Some ATC's for a friend

These are for my leader of my Hello Kitty swap as we are not swap partners but she saw the ones I had made and really liked them so I made some for her, She knows not to look here until she receives them. What do you think?

Porcelain Ornaments

I had several porcelain balls that turned out fabulous and we may drive to Grand Prairie (2hours away and an hour different time zone. So if you leave here at 7am it will be 10am when you get there even though you only drove for 2 hours, its a pain in the rear)to get some more because I think the will dell really well, they are so colourful. Check them out!

Here are a whole bunch of ATC's

It's amazing what you can make in bed if your willing to make a mess, and the boredom is overwhelming. Here are the latest ATC's I made last week when I was feeling awful with a cold. I feel so much better now, my health seems to be improving and I expect to become more active especially on Atlas Quest (boy do I owe you patient people) as soon as I finish painting ornaments for this huge art sale that I got roped into.
