Post Christmas and Pre New Year's

I always have a hard time writing things down when it gets close to the end of the year. Everything is so rushed the last to weeks of the year. Most of the times I enjoy it since I can usually go shopping to take my mind off of things. However, since we only own one care and the nearest shopping center is 15 miles away I can't do much shopping. Nor should I really. We're waiting for Husband to get his paycheck. He has this job but things are getting a little too close for comfort.

Anyways, I got a electric hand mixer and Hang Over Part 2 DVD from the husband, a nice, fluffy pair of slippers from my mother-in-law. My mom sent me a Baby Jesus for my Nativity set. Coincidentally enough, I only have the Baby Jesus. I need to find a Virgin Mary and Joseph of appropriate size. I also got quite a bit of Christmas money. I haven't decided entirely what I want. There's a few things that I want to get to add to my sewing things. I want to buy some marking chalk, some long pins, a sock loom and yarn, and a few yards of fabrics. I also want to get a purse or two.

I'm trying to get my Retro wardrobe started but I haven't had a chance to get going on it. I have a few pairs of gloves, a few necklaces, earrings and a couple of purses.I'd really like to get a purse like this I need to work on getting some shoes and actual clothes. I have a few patterns I've bought whenever Joann's has a patterns sales and have bought a couple of vintage patterns. Of course I need to alter them since they're WAY too small. I also have a bridal petticoat that I need to alter to make it shorter. I also want to make a few pairs of gloves. I have great aspirations for sewing but sometimes I get side tracked. I'll post pics of the fabrics that I have. Some are really cute.

My mom and kids ( brother and sister) are coming up this weekend! The husband and I are really excited to see them. We've missed them. I don't know what we'll do but I'm sure we'll figure something out. Maybe we'll take them to Reno or up to Lake Tahoe. It's super windy and cloudy. It's making my feet cold.

The husband and I need to take some pics for our reception slide show. I've already picked out some pics from the portfolio but I think we need more. I wanted to do an engagement session (although we've weren't ever really engaged) just so we have some nice pics of us together. We have tons of pics of each other but not enough of US. I guess we'll see if it works out.

Well, I gotta get back to cleaning the house and finishing up the reception invitations. Until next year. :D
