SSW 89 - DSB

Today's Ramblings: I have yet to plug in my new sewing machine to see if it works but let's assume it will. Then I have put thread on the bobbin and place the thread through the sewing machine etc - this may take me a good couple hours to figure out - so I better save such things for the weekend.

Speaking of weekends - it is a LONG WEEKEND! And I LOVE long weekends *heehee* Monday is "Family Day" and I also took off Friday so it is a FOUR day weekend - wahhooooooie! Countdown begins....

now.

Remember I was telling you about my donation venture to an animal charity - one was recommended to me and they seem to really, really care about animals! I even came up with a name for my special cards and have been working on a blog button. But it is a secret for now - I really hope this is a success. I will have the long weekend to work out the kinks.

Deanne, I was talking to Arlana about changing the thread in her sewing machine all the time to do her cards. I hate changing the thread...It isn't that I don't know how, it is the time thing. Such a pain. I love your teddy this week. He is so cute. I love how you popped your layers. Have a great week!

Deanne this is such a fun, cheerful Christmas card. The papers are fab with the sparkle they have. And your coloring of Cocoa is absolute perfection - how do you do that? Have fun on your long weekend and setting up the new sewing machine - I could use both right now!
