Happy Cyber Monday, everybody!
Did you survive the Thanksgiving/Black Friday weekend?
I did, but just barely! I worked more hours in the last four days
than I normally do in an entire week.
But, I had the day off today, so I'm feeling a little more rested now.
Friday evening I had a lovely (but too short)
visit with my cousin Ashley and her husband Jason
and she and I got to talk crafty stuff, which was so nice.
I need more crafty friends!
Anyway, how about a card?
I wish I could take credit for this nifty technique,
but I scraplifted it from Lisa Spangler's blog,
with only a slight modification.
I thought the yarn scarf might not stay put through the mail,
so on mine, I paper pierced two holes on either side of
the reindeer's neck and threaded some baker's twine through.
The deer has a really great shimmer in real life thanks to the
perfect pearls, but it doesn't showup in the photo, unfortunately.
I also wanted to share a quick pic of the
Autumn Cheesecake I made for Thanksgiving.
It's covered with apple slices tossed in cinnamon
and sugar plus finely chopped pecans.
