Calendars for the holidays!!!!
I’ve been a busy elf delivering calendars all around town, I was especially happy to drop off hundreds of calendars to several special care facilities as my gift to the residents who might not get much for Christmas. Anyone wanting to share in the holiday spirit all proceeds from the Special Delivery Calendar sales benefit Ronald McDonald House and other local charities. Order online at my store or email me your order the last day for local deliveries is the 19th.
If you haven’t been over to Heidi Claire’s blog it’s a must read she puts together the most gorgeous collection of home decor photos intermixed with fun saying and inspirational quotes, I just love her blog!
I vacuum my ovens!!! I have to admit I thought it was a weird thing at first but it just makes it so much easier to get all those crumbs in the way back using the wand and crevice tool, of course I do it when the ovens cool.
I didn’t mind waking up early to start my 6 hours of cooking especially when I got to finally use my new pretty red baking dish from France, no more 1970’s hand me downs at the Thanksgiving table.
Then the finally after dinner was the annual dog show, each one won best of breed though we had an unfortunate disqualification this time with one of the dogs, maybe next year Sally.
So I’ve been working on a photography project for the past 18 months lots of newborns and lots of very nice patient Moms and Dads donating their time along side mine so I could produce the 2011 Special Delivery Calendar and donate all the proceeds to children’s charities. I love every one of these babies and if you are interested in giving a calendar as a gift for the holidays please visit my online store or my Etsy shop use the code HOLIDAY10 and get 15% off until Nov. 28th. if you’re local Barnes and Noble has them! Hope everyone has a wonderful and bountiful Thanksgiving.
