Finally finished!

I started this piece in Jan 2009 with the intention it would be a Christmas present in 2009...well it is almost Christmas 2010 and I am finally finished!! Yay me! I can't wait for Robert to open it Christmas morning!

On a side note, I got a great deal on some bamboo kitchen utensils awhile back and they finally came. It took almost 5 weeks for them to be delivered, but I paid less than $4 total for a 6 piece set and they seem to be really good quality, nice and heavy.

First snow of the winter

Just sharing a few pics from the snow we got over the weekend. We were at the local Christmas parade and right as the parade started so did the snow it was perfect!
And it was the best kind of snow, it was beautiful for about 12 hrs then melted and caused no problems! :)

Online shopping

I must admet I have never been a huge online shopper, I like to actually see and touch things before I buy them. But this year I have discovered the joy of online shopping! I came across a promotion on, "amazonmom" which gave me 3 months of free amazon prime, which is 2 day shipping on all things sold by, it has been great and I got an email the other day that they have extended it by 2 more months :) I also have discovered, which is constantly running great sales on all kinds of printed goods, note card, business cards, calendars, magnets all kinds of stuff. Anyways, I have already gotten 2 calendars for free, just pay shipping (less than $5 at the time) and tonight I ordered 2 more calendars and 250 business card(my first!) for less $22, this time I had to pay an upload fee for the calendars but other than that they were free plus shipping.
I am happy to say that I am mostly done with my Christmas shopping! I still need a few stocking stuffers for hubby and a gift for my Dad, which is soo hard to shop for and then I think I am done. I am considering giving my Dad a heffer or some other animal :) I probably am not really going to do it, he isn't the kind of person I think would really appriciate that, but it would be funny!
