WOYWW Dec 19

Hello all of you in the middle of Christmas Frenzy! I did manage to get a few cards out this year, but the 3 I have left will probably have to wait until next year! It never fails, no matter how busy or not busy I am, Christmas always sneaks up on me!  I'm working on my daughter's present (Caitlin - if you are reading this - STOP!)
which will probably take me until the very minute she shows up at my door on Monday! So here's what's on my desk this morning:

My new Project Life Box from Michaels

The inside, full of smaller boxes, some from Michael's, some from the Dollar Store. When I bought the ones from the Dollar Store, I thought I would be able to take all the insides out. But I can't, so they will be used for bits and pieces.

The Michael's boxes are perfect to hold both sizes of cards.

We also got a new KITTEN! I know, what a silly time to get a kitten, with the tree and all, but I fell in love, what can you do? And she's hardly noticed the tree, so I think we're good. The story behind this kitten is that she was found inside a box, in the rain, with another kitten, thrown away. So sad! BUT the twist is, that when I was about 10 and at Summer Camp, I found a kitten tied up in a box, and thrown in the woods. Of course, I adopted her - my first cat (of many!) BOTH of the kittens, past and present, were pure black. So now I have a new "Inky" (the name of my first cat) and I'm sure we'll both grow old together!

Inky #2

Inky #1, me at 12

Well, that's all for me! Next Wednesday is Christmas! We'll all have to share any crafting things Santa brought us!

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

I think Christmas time is a wonderful time to give a kitty a good home. :-) We have a black cat, too. I never wanted one because they're so stinkin' hard to photograph, haha. Hope your stays away from the tree.

Hope you get everything done in time!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for the lovely comments.

Happy Woyww and Happy Christmas,

Congratulations on your family addition! I am excited for you! My cat I had for years was found in a trash can as a newborn kitten. It was rescued and Emily was a princess her entire life. I hope your daughter enjoys her gift! thanks for the visit today, and Merry Christmas! Winnie#51
