Crazy, busy weekend

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday. We only expected one daughter from Albuquerque, but Thanksgiving afternoon our daughter from Chicago (flight attendant for Southwest) called to say she would arrive at 5:30 since the airlines didn't call her for a trip. So, we put a hold on the cooking dinner and had a later feast with the two of them. They both left early Saturday so it was a quick visit!

There's a saying in Texas that if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change. Well, change it did. Early in the week we had 80 degrees and the air conditioner running. Thanksgiving morning turned COLD and it actually snowed big flakes in the afternoon. It's back up in the 50's and raining now.

I did manage to find some time for art. I finished twelve 12x12 layouts for a calendar class at Recollections. It was designed by the corporate office but still took hours to put together. Sorry I don't have photos!

I also finished two birthday/anniversary books this weekend. These are tab board books, covered with coordinating patterned papers, with a metal title frame and ribbon tie closure. Each inside page is stamped with a month and has a cardstock block with 31 spaces for writing names for the birthdays and anniversaries that month. These will be Christmas gifts for my Mom and SIL. Hope they're not reading this!
