So.... I'm sure you all have heard the saying, "the best laid plans ..." I've had one of those days. I have looked forward to this day all week long. I planned on getting some of my Christmas gifts started if not done and wrapped. Well.....
I have a nice breakfast, finish my coffee, and I am ready to get started. Do you remember this kit from the last catalog??
I decided that these would make great gifts for my boys, so I was going to make 3 of them. I bought the canvases when they were on sale last month at Michael s, and I bought the paint I wanted to use a few weeks ago. The other thing I had ready was the HEIDI SWAPP stencil I was sure would mimic the CTMH chevron in the original kit. I was good to go!
Only ..... where is the paint? It must be here somewhere .... 2o minutes later ... I threw on some clothes and ran to Micheal's and bought a new tube of paint. Not my plan. But, Santa got me a gift while I was there. I'm sure it will be wrapped and under the tree on Dec. 24! ;-) Project life is on sale this week and I have had my eye on one of the HEIDI SWAPP kits. (yeah!!)
Anyway, back to my story. So I come home, get started again, and I am ready to start putting things together. I just need to print a few pictures.
Print..... a few..... pictures.
Oh NO!! No ink!!
How does this happen? I do not want to go back into town. I have things to do.
I make some lunch, eat, pout, put my shoes on and head back into town to get ink. Pout some more, and finally get home so I can get this done.
I am happy to report that 2 of the 3 are done and the pictures are printed and the detail work is done for the third. I don't plan to quit tonight until all 3 are done and wrapped.
I love feeling like I have a head start on Christmas. Now, what am I going to do for the daughter-in-love?
How are you doing on your Christmas list? C
