Christmas is almost over



Well, almost over. Still a couple of prizes. Comment on this post for a $20 gift certificate to Big Picture Classes.
Crazy busy day! Got my hair done which takes FOREVER! Always looks fabulous, though. That part I like.
Got some great hot pink bras at Loehmann's for not much, like that, too. So went to JoAnn's (Yes, conversation hearts there, I figured if M had them then J did also, so, THX), and of course I did not find quite what I wanted to go with any of the ideas I had. However, new ideas! I plan on a "Hello Kitty" themed bra with fuzzy polyester fleece HK designs and bows and heart bling, too.Probably black buttons if I have the time. The other one will feature flowers, mostly pre-made ones. Since we are doing the flash mob to honor Cheryl Waters (seen in middle above between Kelly-Jo and Wendy-Jo) and her cancer fight, with our Be Aware Foundation donation, I think I'll put some handmade Cheryl-like flowers on it. Of course a little glitter and bling will be added but mainly flowers.
I'll have to see which design works out when I actually put these ideas together. Obviously a creative process! I may let you folks vote IF I'm done in time. Note: big IF.
Tomorrow my cleaning lady will be here so I think we'll start to take down some of Christmas. The pressure of being gone for CHA is getting to me. I ride around on a handicapped scooter while there and talk to people. It's not like I do anything profound; but, being gone can be stressful. Just too soon after the holidays this year.
So, after the cleaning tomorrow it's chores - crafting and packing and making sure things are tidy and bills paid.
I chose my One Little Word for this year. It is COMPOSE. I think being creative and calm are worthy aspirations for 2013. Did any of you choose a word for the year?

Love the picture of Cheryl and the Jo, Jo's! I was lucky enough to meet Kelly Jo while she was still a lead. Cheryl and I know that we will share a physical (vs. virtual) hug one day. I wish it could be soon. She certainly deserves as many as she can get right now! Can't wait to see your bra!

Love that photo!! I sure miss those ladies.

No word for me. Maybe it should be Stress with a line running through.... I so need less stress this year. Only 3 days back at work and I am already feeling it. Ugh.

You are such a lucky gal to get to go to CHA. I just got back from Anaheim... But that was for Disney.
