Well we survived last week's outbursts...we seem to have one per day now so I am getting more used to them. Can't imagine what life we be like when they are teens...hopefully they will have developed some really good drugs by then so I can survive!
We are enjoying an unusually cold and rainy day here in San Diego. So the girls are watching Shrek which is their favorite movie right now. I just finished ordering the last of my Christmas gifts online and I spent most of the morning packing up my club orders and finishing my club members Christmas gifts. They are going out a little later than I wanted but I had to wait on a few folks to get their orders to me this time so I apologize about that! They will all be airborne by tomorrow though and some went out Saturday.
For those of you following my yoga experience I am happy to report that I have lost 3.5# now and finished my 12th class. It is getting much easier to handle the hot room and I feel great when it is done so I am extremely pleased with how well it is working. Joel says he can already see a huge difference. Here is a link if you want to watch an interesting 60 minute interview with Bikram himself...I think the McYoga reference is funny, but San Diego is the first place I have ever lived that had it...click on the picture of Bikram and download the interview.
Basically you cut a shape out of cardstock and use that as a template to sponge your color inside your mask. Here is a look at what my mask for these ornaments looked like:
I used a 1 1/2" inch circle punch, a 1 3/8" circle punch and a 1 1/4" circle punch. I also used the Top Note Die for the Big Shot. I held the mask in place and stamped my snowflake background on each of the ornaments and then used a green fern branch from a retired set hostess set called garden sillouettes to look like a branch. I used Red Riding hood ink and cardstock, baja breeze ink and cardstock, kiwi kiss ink and always artichoke ink for the branch. I also used the set Short and Sweet for the sentiment.
and this one uses a heart mask:
It doesn't take many supplies...so give it a try sometime!
Ciao for now! Deidre
