{cropped and ready for bed}

Yesterday I cropped from noon until 11 pm. It was great to be with others who love being creative with paper. I didn't get everything that I wanted done, but I did finish my 12 days of Christmas project, and I was able to churn out a 'Thanksgiving' card, and a 2 page LO (I never do those)... I just felt like challenging myself a bit, and I really wanted to use as many pictures at one time that I could while still creating a beautiful and simple scrap page.

I have taken pictures, but Gavin is on the laptop right now, so I can't load and edit them yet. I need to sign up for my paid account at Picnik since I have decided that I prefer their site, and I like using them more than Picasa. I like it because I don't have to download it to my computer, and people can view my pictures like they do on the picasa web albums. So I will actually be paying for photo editing stuff, but it will be MUCHO cheaper than photoshop (which I would love, but it's not in the budget). I've much rather have a good fitting new pair of jeans and pants for work.

So I am gearing up for Black Friday. Ads are being released early online so if you are into the hustle and bustle of the biggest shopping day of the year, you may check out this website: www.blackfriday.info -- I follow this site religiously every holiday season.

So.... I'm going to have a date with the television now and then I am off to bed because Gavin and I are exhausted from this weekend. I have the most wonderful husband in the world. While I was away at cropping... he was cleaning the carpets, picking up the dog from the groomer, and taking care of our sweet (and becoming destructive) angel baby girl.k -- He's the best man ever, and I am so blessed to be his wife. Today we picked up Harper a new winter coat from Old Navy, taking advantage of their 30% off coupon. Then we ate at the Cajun Big Easy at the mall and picked up some rolls of wrapping paper at Hallmark and Harper's Xmas ornament for this year. I love their $5 off coupons :) -- I got 2 rolls of Peanuts paper, Xmas plaid, and one with a Merry message on it. Harper's ornament is the Orange See and Say they have. It's fun. Harper was a handful today though, so we are both pooped to say the least.

Goodnight and I hope everyone has a lovely and hopefully creative week without any tests, unlike me :(

With love,
Gabi from Savannah, TX
