Black Friday

While walking guests to their tables at work today, I took an informal survey about their Black Friday/Saturday shopping experiences. Most people admitted to doing at least “a little” shopping, and some were going as soon as they finished eating. None had any great tales about fabulous finds, although one did tell me she found some great crafting deals at Michael’s and Joann’s Fabrics, and I should go check them out. This tickled me, as I didn’t know her at all and I don’t think anything on my all black, adornment-free Olive Garden garb would scream “crafter” to her. Perhaps we just know our own kind.

Today was our Second Saturday Scrapbooking for November, and Sherri and I had a lovely, laid-back day together. My major accomplishment (besides teaching Sherri how to make Base & Bling pendants) was to assemble a full set of Christmas cards as samples for our Yuletide Carol workshop in December.

The set of twelve Christmas cards was designed by Jen Patrick of Roxybonds Scrappin’, using the Yuletide Carol paper packet and Complements (X7187B and X7187C). Here is one of my absolute favorites:
