And so it begins.....

Hello everyone, and a very pleasant December 1st to you all. The countdown is on and I am still working on my Christmas cards. What can I say, I am such a procrastinator when it comes to all that Fa La La La La and Egg Nog stuff, and please please don't get me started on what I think of snow.

There are lots of us Canadian folk that hate snow and the whole winter season to boot (no pun intended there). Which begs the question, why do I still live up here in the great white north? A simple explanation would be to say that where I live is such a beautiful place and even when it gets all cold and snowy it is still  beautiful. So in a nutshell, I would have to say that winter is a small price to pay to live in such a beautiful part of the world. I must say though, so far we have been doing pretty good in the weather department and I will leave it at that. I don’t want to be blamed for jinxing things for us all.

One thing that the fall/winter season brings with it is my birthday. Being a November baby I have always wished that I could celebrate by having either a beach or pool party. Now there isn’t much anyone can do to change their date of birth but there is one thing that you can do. Move “Down Under” you know the “Outback”, or more traditionally referred to as Australia. A friend of mine recently moved away to the land down under and was spending HER November BDAY at the beach, without me! Too bad though that you would have to travel to the other side of the planet to do so.

Speaking of November birthdays, my crazy friend Darlene's birthday is the day before mine and this year we made a Copic card for each other. I haven't had the chance to photograph her card yet but I thought I would show you the one that I made for her. I will post her card over the next day or two, and hopefully by then I will have some "completed" Christmas cards to show you as well.

Well folks, that is about all I have for you today. I am trying not to blab my head off on this thing but it’s like talking to someone. Yikes! Its bed time for bonzo and God willing my feet will touch the floor again tomorrow and I am able to get right back at it! Thanks for stopping by :)S
