Thank You and Some Tags

Happy Monday to you!

Before I get started, I want to thank all of you for the wonderful support given for my Moxie Fab post! I was overwhelmed by all the sweet comments I received from so many of you! Thank you very much! :)

I've had another busy weekend, mixed with work and fun. The real craziness begins tomorrow, with working the next five days. As you know, when you work in retail, Christmas week is a very busy one. I work on Christmas Eve, which is actually one of my favorite days to be at the store! Everyone is in a festive mood, smiling and happy. Each year, we also have live music. It consists of three older musicians, playing a cello, a violin and an accordion. They don't sing, they just play Christmas songs, and the customers love it. . . . . .so do I!

Today I have a couple of tags to show you. Very simple design because I'm running out of time to get everything done! I needed 6 more tags for some gifts that will be wrapped in red and white, striped paper. Thought these would work perfectly, and so easy!


I also have a photo to share today. For the last 20 years or so, all the gals in my family have gotten together for our annual ornament exchanging party. It started out years ago with just my sisters and mom, but as my nieces grew older, we wanted to include them too. It was always held at my mom's house, and without her now, for the past two years, it has been held at one of my niece's homes. I have three sisters, two sister-in-laws and eight nieces. Counting me, that's a total of fourteen of us. We have such a great time together, catching up and lots of laughing! Here's a group shot.




Top row, all the way to the right, is me, (in case you can't tell.)

Okay, that's it for now. I'm not sure if I'll have much time to check out blogs or comment on Flickr this week, so just in case my comments get few and far between, I want to wish all of you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!! :)
