Hi Everybody!

It has been a busy month for me. We were supposed to get new floors this month and I had to get all of the painting done throughout the house. So, we have a pretty colorful house. It is so refreshing after looking at antique white walls for so long. Oh, don't get me wrong....I like the walls when we first moved in....but I love color! So, we have a mix of the rainbow throughout the house. The bedroom is green, the craftroom and living rooms are golden yellow, and the spare bedroom is blue....though I am not keen on it. THAT may change....LOL. I also have the bathrooms to do and can't make up my mind what colors to make them. But, they will get done. I did all of this to be ready for the new floors that will now not be delivered until January. Our contractor got a government job for this month and I will be with my mother next month...and he doesn't work in December. I wouldn't want Christmas torn up anyway....so we will have new beginnings in January as it should be...especially when we look down at our feet....LOL.

This month, I have concentrated on Thanksgiving and Christmas. In case you forgot, I had told you in the last newsletter that I will not be here to do the December newsletter and so I am doing a combined effort this month.

But, I will also be having a download party again this year on the Yahoo Group site. But, I will NOT under any circumstances be sending out special downloads to people who email me...so if you want the files...you will have to be present this time. If there is a glitch...that would be the only exception. So, be there or be square! LOL! I will let you know the date when I get back from PA. It will be sometime in December.

Here are the new files:

For your calendar needs coming up, here is a cute project that would be easy to make as stocking stuffers!



If you need a box and don't know how to design it yourself.....plug in the dimensions of what you need and this site will create a template for you. Then you will need to vectorize it on your computer in order to cut it with your machine....or cut it by hand after printing it out.


See you next month!
