A mini to do list

The prompt for my Journal your Christmas class came early so I was able to finish my page before heading to bed. Since the next couple days will be busy getting ready to travel on Thursday it's nice to get it done.

This page as well as all the others was created in Photoshop Elements and you can click the photo to enlarge. Of all the things Adam misses about not being able to spend Christmas with the family, I think the picnic tops the list. We'll have one this year with Chris and Becky on Christmas Eve but we'll have a 2nd one when Adam comes to visit in February.

My list for Tues & Wed
  • Finish binding on HS quilt
  • Laundry
  • Pack - including the two donations quilts & Mom's Birthday present
  • Ship quilts & pillowcases to Alycia and Adam's stocking stuffers (we don't do presents but since he's all alone I send a few little things for his stocking)
  • Make and photograph Happy Blocks, write instructions for HeartStrings New Year's Eve Party
  • Get some sleep!

We do picnics every once in awhile too. Doing them on Christmas Eve sounds like a fun tradition.

What a fun idea for Christmas Eve, and it has obviously made a impact on your sons. I am sure they will carry on the tradition with their own families some day.

I really enjoy your scrape book pages, What program are you using?

Nanci said...

Mary, again, you gotta relax girl...I removed so much from my lists that now I can just sew.
Have a good trip. Our weather here in Ontario is so dreary, snow then rain and more snow. Where is the sunshine? Oh it must be in Minnisota...regards dear friend.
