Last Book!

I'm almost done with "Breaking Dawn" I was trying to save the last book for the Christmas break, but I guess I will have time to craft instead.
Mojo #117 was completed a couple days ago, but never did have time to post till now ( bet you can't guess why). Just got my new Verve Stamps and I knew I just had to use it. Love it!

4 x 4 Easel Card

I love this card! Thanks to Tracy for bringing the template to share with us last Cal~Gals.
I'm on the 3rd book already "Eclipse" I didn't read "New Moon" in a day, but I managed to do it in 2 days. I had to put the book down to do my Christmas shopping and we also had to go to the "Teddy Bear Toss" at the Hitman's hockey game.
Wooo Hoooo! I'm all done with my Christmas shopping... I did most of my shopping at Tommy Hilfigers (Cross Iron Mall) majority of thier stuff are on sale from 30-60 % off. It was so much easier shopping there than going to Winners.

It was half the Cal~Gals last night, but we still managed to have fun, giggles, joke around and EAT. Oh yeah... the purpose of getting together! Not a bad night... we did a lot of creating, but I think Nancy did the most.
It was Tracy's turn to do the sketch and we all did really good. That is... if you're not timing us! As usual I was the last one to finish.
I love the image that I used for this one. Unfortunately it's not mine (Nancy's), but will probably have one soon, since they have it at my second home (Michael's) hehehe.
I got the rest of the Twilight books last night from Shannon and I started reading New Moon last night.... I already read 3/4 of it! Hubby is already complaining that I don't have to read the whole book in one night. Lol, I don't think I could read that fast.

Happy Monday to you all! My take on today's #116 Mojo. I'm very excited that I was able to finish this one today, while taking a break from my Christmas baskets.

16 more to go!

Woo Hoo! I did 68 baskets over the weekend and hubby just came to pick up 34 of them. Of course he called and asked me to bring 34 upstairs, so it's easier for him to load. Wheew... I was sweating after the 10th! I tried to carry 2 at a time, but my short arms couldn't do it.
My assembly line is set up in the basement, where the play area is for the girls. They are not allowed to play there... but they will disappear from time to time with an excuse of needing a specific toy from downstairs. They think they are so smart! the other day I caught them with not ONE, but Six chocolate bars! And that's not six to share, but six for each.

For the gift tag, I used clear ball from Michael's and embossed the sentiment on vellum (light enough to be able to roll and insert in the ball) I also used stickers and glitter glue to decorate the ball.
I already started my Mojo sketch and hoping I will be able to finish it today.

Mojo 115

I'm suppose to be doing my Christmas baskets.... but I thought, I'd take a break and do the Mojo sketch instead. I don't know what kind a break I think I deserve, when I haven't even started yet.

I don't know about this one... I was trying to go for non traditional Christmas colours, but it didn't turned out the way I was hoping for.

What's in it?
Image~~~~~~Verve O Christmas Tree; PTI Signature Christmas
Ink~~~~~~~~Stampin up Elegant Eggplant; Copic markers; Dusty Concord distress ink; Purple Twilight
& Water Melon Alcohol ink
Paper~~~~~~PTI White card stock; Stampin up Elegant Eggplant; Staples glossy photo paper
Accessories~Kaser Kraft rhinestones; Fancy tags, Circle & Scalloped circle nestabilities;
Argyle #2 Sizzix embossing folder

A little bit disappointed with the first one, so I gave it another try and came out with 2 more Mojo Sketch.
What's in it?
Image~~~~~~PTI Signature Christmas & Holiday Button Bits
Ink~~~~~~~~Lipstick Red Colorbox; Brilliance Rocket Red Gold
Paper~~~~~~Stampin up Red Riding Hood; PTI White card stock; Martha Stewart Holidays
Accessories~Pendant Renaissance Hearts & Fancy tags nestabilities; Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder
$ store buttons; Silver brads

This one is pretty much the same, except I used Pendant Fleur De Lis.

Do I really need it?

You BET!! I just picked this up at Michael's today for $10!!! I used my 50% coupon (last week's receipt) and then the 20% coupon for all Martha Stewart products (this week's flyer) It's already a deal when you buy the combo pack, but the $10 is even better.
Is it ever ugly out there! Hubby dropped me off at LJB's school for PTI this morning for 9:15. It just started snowing and when I came out of the school (15 minutes later) everything was covered. I already did my shovel #1 for the day and I think I will probably do #2 shoveling after my afternoon run with the school bus.
