My brother gifted me these 60 Ohuhu Markers (company site) for Christmas, and of course the first thing I did one Christmas Day was swatch them. I took a cut up mailing label, swatched on it, and then stuck it to the markers with a bit of extra tape for the edges so they don't … Continue reading Swatching My Christmas Present!
My husband came home the day before Christmas Eve, and he found a mysterious box on our front porch. It was open, with a plastic shopping bag inside, and when I looked in there were these: Yes, these are exactly what they look like. Wooden clogs. I'm guessing for Christmas, since some traditions still use … Continue reading You Left WHAT At My Door?
No blog post today due to the holiday. Hope you're having a wonderful time! And if you're sitting bored somewhere, I have 393 posts on my blog you can read. *wink*

My husband got this set of Mario magnets for Christmas! It's pretty obvious they're not officially licensed, but they are cute and kind of fun!
This is a little older, but I wasn't able to get the photos my family took from it until now. I had a close friend, who is military, drop by my parents around Thanksgiving. She has been having a hard time, and I remembered that she loved making Gingerbread Houses, so I picked one up … Continue reading Puzzling the Neighbors – Gingerbread House Edition
No post today. Hope you're having a wonderful holiday!
The last of the presents I've ordered have arrived! Nothing big, but I did almost all of my shopping online during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and now everything is accounted for. *smile* We were within budget, and we were able to find gifts for everyone in our immediate family. I spent last night wrapping … Continue reading Wrapped and Ready To Go!
