It's been a busy week. Aside from packing for a rather lengthy vacation, we're also packing up our kitchen so the contractor can begin to rip out the ceiling and old cupboards while we're away. We've been driving to Consesus Lake every day to visit with Tracy's family. His mom has rented a cottage, and all of us try to gather for dinner (at least) every day. It's been over 90° every day this week, so it's been great to be at the lake. The last several years, we've taken the opportunity to draw names for the Christmas gift exchange during this week since everyone is together. I make gift tags, and if they want, the family can save them for the packages come December. (Mine is in a little dish on my dresser so I don't lose it!)
Here is this year's version:
I kept it pretty simple this year. I colored some Avery tags with Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Broken China), punched some snowflakes and outlined them with a glitter pen, and added a coordinating gem. The snowflakes are popped out with a 3-D adhesive. The back was stamped with WPlus9's "All Occasion Tags."
This is probably my last blog post before we leave for Vancouver, BC and Alaska. It appears internet connections will be iffy, so I doubt that I'll be able to do much blog reading or commenting (not that I expect to have much time for that), and I'm quite sure posting will be a challenge. I'm hoping to keep up with Project 64, but we'll see how it goes. I do have a few posts pre-scheduled, and I'll be catching up with you on my return. We're very excited to be going on our first cruise, and to be going with good friends of over 25 years. Should be fabulous!
