December Daily : Day 17



(day 17 : "holiday" from a Kate Spade mailer)


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Oh man, I am really starting to get all excited. Updating some of the decor I put up earlier: making adjustments, moving things around, getting ready to have family here. I can hardly wait for all of them to get here.

Working a bit on wrapping each day so I don't end up doing it all at the last minute. I like being able to take my time. Here's a couple so far - going with a red + browns theme.

Found these bakers boxes at Shim + Sons. I like having a mixture of wrapped presents and others in simple brown boxes. Ribbon from Pottery Barn.

Red on red stripe wrapping paper at Target. Chocolate ribbon from Paper Source.

This is cool: today (Tuesday) through Thursday, December 20th Fontwerks is having a 30% off sale with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks. Enter "HoHoHo!" at checkout (don't forget the exclamation point).

And one more thing: could you say a little prayer for me today? I had three more abnormal moles removed this morning. Here's to hoping they are simply abnormal looking and not anything else.

    Hi Ali,
    Just wanted you to know that I sent word to my big guys and gal up there (I'm a cancer survivor and talk to them all the time, believe me!) that your moles are insignificant. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
    Your friend, Marge
