My Little Secret...SHhhhhhh!

This year I made around 30 cards, but still had another 20 to go. I had a million things to do yet(still do!) and time was running out. So...I took advantage of some of the samples I had previously made using sets that are now retired. I killed two birds with one my cards all done and mailed on time, plus now I have a little more space in my craft room for more cards to pile up! Good thing I always make full cards and then store them in clear envelopes. Nobody will know that I didn't just make them especially for them...unless you tell them! ;-)

Today I need to do some more baking. I made the dough for my Grandma's Molasses cookies last night, I also baked a few batches of Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut with white chocolate chips in them last night...those are so good! Today I'll be rolling balls all day...Peanut Butter Balls and Truffles and dipping them in chocolate. After smelling the chocolate all day I don't even want to think about eating any for a while...can you believe that!?

Yesterday I almost finished my shopping...just a few more stocking stuffers to get at this point. What a relief! Most are even wrapped!

We had a great time on Tuesday night at the Ozzy/Rob Zombie concert! Rob Zombie opened and he put on an excellent show! Full of creepy theatrics & pyrotechnics ~ Think Alice Cooper meets Kiss. He had several monitors showing clips from his movies, etc...We had floor seats about 30 rows back so we had a good view. When he was finished with his set I said, Ozzy is going to have a hard time topping that!

Unfortunately I was right. Before he entered the stage there was a hilarious montage of clips on the big screen showing Ozzy imposed into a bunch of hit movies and TV shows...Pirates of the Caribbean (he bit the head off a parrot), Lost (he was Locke's father) Dancing With the Stars (he was standing there holding a leg, screaming Shaaa-ron! thinks it was Heather Mills...ooops!) the Office, Wedding Crashers, etc...It was twisted & really funny. He performed not much more than an hour, with no real encore. His voice wasn't too strong and he was hard to hear (and understand...but no surprise there!). His guitarist Zakk Wilde was really good, so that kind of made up for it. All in all I am still glad I got to see Ozzy even tho it wasn't the best performance. I was really impressed with Rob Zombie and would go see him again.

Have a great day!!!

Omg, Lynn! I think that was a terrific idea. Why stress yourself out when you have those cards . . . you can't save them forever, ya know. I am sure any one of your friends/family members would adore receiving one of them. They are GORGEOUS! :) Kelly

Love this card recycling idea! Wish I had enough samples to do that myself, instead of having to make them all!

Sounds like you had a great time at your concert! It's nice to having something else to do other than stress over the holidays.
