I did most of my Christmas gifting online this year...maybe will not next year....UPS has been a real pain about delivering (blaming a back log on the ice storm....yeah right). I finished everything on the 13th with delivery by the 17th so that I would not be in the RUSH....I still have 2 to be delivered...only after several phone calls and e-mails they finally told me they would deliver today or at latest by Monday, will see. None so far have been delivered on time and I had several NOT delivered in Texas. Then a package that I mailed by US Postal Service to Georgia on the 13th, left here, went to Tallahassee, FL (35 miles from destination) then it was sent to Memphis, TN where it sat for 3 days until I started raising a stink (again in person, by e-mail and phone) now it has left Memphis according to the tracker, but not to where it was sent, but I bet the package does not arrive in time for Christmas if ever! And, they are raising postage again in January as they are going broke....I wonder why?????? If I have to file a complaint they will make me prove it was not my fault before they will do anything.....GEEZ....I am glad I sent my cards out on the 3rd...hope everyone got theirs! LMBO!!
Okay, enough complaining...I am warm, fed, bills are paid and am in a lot better health than a lot of folks, so I have lots to be thankful for. Thank you God for taking care of me. I am very thankful for my family and the new additions this year that arrived healthy and with no problems. I am thankful for all my friends (real and cyber) that I cherish so much. I am thankful I have made it to complete retirement and can sit on my butt and enjoy scrapping as much as I want to....LOL! And that, I have been doing a lot of, both paper and digital. I am so very thankful for all the generous designers that so generously share their beautiful work with me so that I can make such lovely pages.I am certainly one lucky person!!!
Here are some of the things I have been making this week! first of all I used a template from Granny Enchanted for ornaments of the kiddos (Grandmas are cutting them out and putting on the trees).
I have made a few pages too, but since I am not finished, I will post those in a couple of days just before Christmas day....Y'all have a great Sunday....make lots of memories, be safe if you are traveling for the holiday and/or out finishing up your shopping. Chat with you more later, right now I think I need a nap. LOL, yep, I am happy to say I can do that now anytime I want to and not feel guilty about not doing something else. Just loving it! Hugs, Mat
