Are you recovered from Thanksgiving and Black Friday????

I am.. =) I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving with family and friends. We cooked a 20lb turkey and all the trimmings. Had my inlaws over.. I tried a few new items this year. coleslaw using Zehnder's coleslaw dressing and their buttered noodles.. the coleslaw turned out great. I used my new 9 cup KitchenAid food processor. that thing rocks. it's like a ship getting ready for take off... i got mine from QVC and in Black..
and the buttered noodles were ok.. lesson learned on those. i got the wrong size noodles, should have been the medium noodles, not the wide ones. oh is a pic of the aftermath.. all the dishes.. blah =)

then, after relaxing and having Pumpkin pie, we met up with our friend Dan's family for bowling at Bay Lanes. i haven't bowled in years. it was fun.

I didn't have any intentions of going out for Black Friday, but I decided to go out to Michael's and my LSS.. I got a ton of stuff, their organization cubes were 55% off.. only $13 bucks.. it was a steal. so, I started my collection.. and bought a few Christmas gifts... this is a pic of my stash.. got a cute holly edger, some holiday ribbon, brads, felt, and I got the Fancy Pants Vintage Valentine paper collection.. it is soooo cute. and a bunch of other stuff... can't wait to play.

oh.. and my new MM carousel

this is the make n take I did at the LSS... a Sizzix rep was there and we made this cute card. love it.. =)

So, I splurged a little on Black Friday.. it was fun.. then, came home to eat some leftovers. had a hot turkey sandwich.. then we went over to our friends house, drank some beers... my favorite is the Mich Ultra Pomegranate Rasberry.. yum...stayed out too late...

and that leads us up till today.. I woke up feeling crappy... decided I would go to Joann's this morning.. I didn't really see anything that really grabbed me, but I did pick up a few things to make some cute holiday projects with my Tim Holtz alcohol inks and clear glass ornaments. check out this tutorial HERE.. they are so cute..

If my energy level increases, i plan on getting the tree out and decorated.. I'm almost done with my holiday shopping too.. most of it done online.. takes the stress level out of shopping.. and I'll try to get some crafting done too. =) gosh.. so much to tell you all.. I think i need to update more often..

see you soon.. toodles..
