So many to-do's so little time

I have had to make a to-do list. I hate to-do lists. Makes me feel more overwelmed to look at said to-do list. Did I mention that I hate to-do lists?

So here is what's on the bad boy:

Mail nomination letters to Auxiliary members
Put backing on baby quilt
Make birthday cards for sister-in-laws (before I have to make a belated one)
Put my Stampin Up stamps on Ebay to get rid of....sell I mean
Finish Memorial Day program and send to print (before Memorial Day)
Get some exercise in this week you lazy ........
Grocery store. (the place that has food in it making it possible to eat)
Go to Lowes to get herbs (so that if I never get to the grocery store we can at least eat basil)
Get something to wear for Memorial Day services (so that this year when I see myself on tv and gasp at how much heavier you look on camera I will at least like the shirt I am wearing)

Somewhere on this should be 'buy case of wine' but I think we all know that is just a give in.

Well look who's back

I know, I know, I don't keep my posts up to date lately. You don't have to yell at me. Oh what you weren't yelling? You haven't even looked lately? FINE. My only excuse is work, work, work!

A few things that went on this week... I received another order of Copic pens. Oozak sent out an email that the prices are going up soon. The link is to the right of this post and you have to order from them before the price goes up. Oozak is the least expensive place I know of to get Copics. The customer service is outstanding and you get your order in 2 days!

I am starting to make some (simple) backpacks for Operation Military Kids. Simple because I have to make a lot of them. The backpacks go to kids who's parents are serving in the military. They will be filled with coloring books, crayons, stickers, gift certificates etc. I plan on machine embroidering My Mom/Dad is a HERO on the front. Have to get working on the design.

I received a Birthday Card Shower invitation for a childhood friend and neighbor a few weeks ago and really wanted to make her a card. I of course had to go to Mo's Digital Pencil Shop and bought Mummu. I tend to keep my cards pretty simple because I want the work to stand out. And I don't want to pay $2.00 to mail a card!

Her mother is the one who taught me to sew when I was just 10 years old. She was starting a 4-H group and now that I think about it I don't remember having a say in if I wanted to join or not. I think Mrs. Munsey just said I will and I did! That is how she taught me to sew will and I did! And every time I sew something today I thank her for that.

Happy Birthday Suzanne. Hope you have a wonderful birthday and enjoy your card.
