Sisterhood 3 of Blogging Stampers

Well, it was an eventful weekend. Still working on decorating for the holidays (which will probably take me till next week). I'll be sharing some of my creative displays soon. I only wish I could work on them an entire day and get it done, but I need to make time for family and holiday shopping as well.


Speaking of holiday shopping...has anyone had to stand in a line for more than an hour for something? I left the house 1/2 hour early to head to Best Buy to purchase a Wii for the kids and found out 'while' I stood in line that they were out. Ever notice there is always one HOT holiday item that everyone seems to want? Well, I have no intentions of traveling to the far ends of the earth to find one of these...they will be available everywhere once the Holiday is over.



Now, onto the big news. I subscribed to a great new group called "The Sisterhood of Blogging Stampers". It's basically a group of stampers that support one another by sharing artwork through their blogs. I'm really looking forward to getting to know the group. It's always nice meeting others who enjoy the same hobbies as I do.


It felt like Spring here today (well...more like the beginning of Summer). I went outside yesterday to clean the kitchen wire rack and saw these beauties in full bloom. Of course, they have been in bloom for over a week now; I just slooooooooooooowed down enough to get a photo of them.

These mums are from last years Halloween display in the front yard. I threw them in the side yard until I could find them an official home. Looks like they decided for me.




These photos are gonna be what brightens my day when the temps eventually dip into the 30's.





Look at the little cucumber beetle! Doesn't he know it's December? He should be in hiding until Spring.

O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil.

I am so happy to be in SBS3 with you. Your blog is so pretty. I love the flowers and your cards are great. I tried to buy a Wii for my nieces and nephew. Gave up. It will do them good to face disappointment :) Well maybe not, but I got them cool things anyway.
