Get Well Soon


Busy, busy, busy is how I feel this time of the year. From making holiday cards for others, not to mention our own cards, plus any additional gifts, and holiday shopping. How do I fit it in? I'm trying to finish my card orders this week, so next week I can work on mine. We'll see how this goes because I want to add some non-holiday items to my blog, but somehow, I see that not happening! Bare with me because I feel it may get a little hectic around here! In spite of, it's a great feeling and the holidays are very special, so I'm grateful to work hard for it.

Oh, I wanted to share one place with you that I've discovered. It's called Peachy Cheap and boy how it just may be addicting. They feature an item(s) of the day (scrapbook-related) that can be up to 99% off retail price and it is only available for that day. You cannot purchase it later and I've seen that they have sold out before noon on some occasions. I've already placed an order for some holiday felt embellishments that I could not resist (when it's almost over-tell me about it). I hope you don't get addicted, but I think it's hard not to at least check once a day!
