Good morning, y’all – happy Friday! Can you even believe we’re heading into the last weekend of 2018? Sheesh! Before you know it…the Big Ball will be dropping and we’ll be eating collard greens and black-eyed peas!
Well – WE sure will! Why tempt fate by NOT eating them?!?
As we head into a new year and make our resolutions to be more efficient. More organized. More….together!…Stampin’ Up! and Paper Pumpkin helped us out with the December kit! It’s called Day by Day and it created a cute 18- month calendar, complete with a box for gifting! Super cute!
The kit contained the exclusive stamp set Day by Day, and two Ink Spots – one in Grapefruit Grove and one in Pool Party!
Each month – 18 of them, in fact! – has its own page, with a customizable sticker for the top. And – the stamp set includes a cute little circle die, so you can stamp-circle important dates in each month!
The final calendar is really cute, especially with its pretty Pool Party ribbon!
Stampin’ Up! put together a quick video – check it out to see how to put your kit together, if you haven’t already!

The other night – on Christmas Eve Eve, we built a little fire in our outdoor fire pit – first one!
Finn “helped” gather wood.
By which I mean – Wayne gathered wood – and Finn tried to get it away from him! Thought it was a new form of Tug!
Sorry – between the dark and me laughing – this picture is…not so good! But you get the picture!
We finally got enough wood together to have a decent little fire. I had us some hot chocolate and a couple of Texas Cowboy cookies. So we sat and contemplated the flames for a while, with our guard dog keeping us safe from…whatever he thought he heard!
It was a very pleasant evening, indeed!
