I am so tired! I feel like I have spent the last week on the computer! And I sort of have. First I entered about 180-200 contests on Quilting Gallery's Giveaway Day list. Then I started entering contests on Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day Monday. I am officially done with the ones I'm entering and I'm pooped! I sure hope I win something to make all this typing worthwhile! But I will say, it has been great fun finding new blogs I didn't know about. And I like when blogs ask you to answer specific questions in their comments. Now, most blogs are asking Christmas type questions (favorite movie, favorite Christmas song or treat) but I have come across some different ones. "Given the chance would you become a vampire?" That was definitely different. I also came across a game someone did in their comments which I thought was very cute. I'll have to remember that one next time I do a giveaway!
Well, even though I've spent most of my time typing, I have tried to work on some things. My MIL's stack of fiesta ware dishes is getting closer to done. I kind of got a kick in the pants today when I looked at my dashboard and noticed that M-R over at Quilt Matters made a comment about how there are only 10 days left until Christmas. Holy bells and whistles Batman! How did that happen? I've been working through a bit of a sluggish period but now is the time to get it in gear! So here's where the dishes stand right now:
Oh, and if you're wondering about those silly elves...
and yesterday they took pictures with my camera which we found next to them (hard to take a picture of a camera on the shelf when you're using it to take the picture). They had their hands over their mouths giggling. When I showed the kids the pictures, I accidentally knocked one of the elves off the shelf. Too bad! They don't move the next day if you tough them (a break for me!). All the pictures they took were low to the ground, though one was of an elf hanging from the shower curtain rod (though it looked to be taken from the floor!).
