Tuesday and Ten Days to Go

Christmas is coming whether we are ready or not...I am more on the not side...Yikes!  This weekend it looks like I am going to be at the mall with all the other crazy last minute shoppers...and I will be in my craft room as much as possible finishing up some handmade gifts for friends and loved ones.  So much to do and not enough hours in the day!!

While we go about doing the last bit of shopping, just remember THE Reason for this Season!  God bless!!

Some Bloggy Goodness ~ Check It Out!!

I found the most wonderful page of  FREE blog templates with the all important 3 column set-up.

If I knew what I was doing I could post a screen shot...but I don't so you will have to head on over and check it out.  My layout is called Long Johns...I just followed the easy steps on the the blog and I was able to spruce up my little space online!  I think it goes well with my logo and it has the all important (to me at least) 3 column design.  This is the first time ever I was able to use a template and actually get it to work!!!  Kudos to LeeLou Blogs...I will be heading back to see what other goodies are for free!!!

PS - you can download a cute desktop too!!

Cooking Up Some Christmas Gifts

I love making handmade/homemade gifts.  One of the easiest and most appreciated gifts around the holiday is food!  I am always looking for new ideas to give away to friends and co-workers.  So many people do cookies and candy that I like to find something different.  In my search for new ideas, I came across this fabulous website. 

I have only just begun to explore the possibilities.  My head is swimming with ideas for food gifts! I think some of these suggestions are relatively inexpensive and fairly easy.  I invite you to check out this site and find some great ideas beyond cookies and fudge for holiday giving!

Jasper...the lovely little cat that adopted us! Here he is at the vet. We found out he is about a year old. He is typically a calm kitty. He has his playful and silly moments too.

He doesn't mind being held and has been known to eat a dog biscuit or two when Max isn't looking.

The dog and cat are getting along. We are amazed at how well Max has handled this addition. We would have never thought in a million years that we would add a cat to our home but Jasper picked us and he is a keeper!!
