I worked on Christmas Cards for several days. Here is a photo of what I am sending out this go round. I love decorated envelopes and hope that everyone loved them as well. Do you make your envelopes cute when sending out your Christmas Cards?
I will be glad once pen pal letters start rolling in after the holidays! I always love getting happy mail!
Everyone have a blessed Christmas!

Am working on getting our small tree decorated! It looks sad here but I do plan on adding more stuff to tree. Last year I didn't decorate at all so am proud of getting this little bit done. I want to add some beads and tinsel to the tree. I also think when I plug it in the lights will help it look much better. I love snowmen of all kinds.

My Treasured Friends Group
Hello! I am in this wonderful group. We just did a Christmas Swap. I got Chris G as my partner.
This is what I sent her. Am hoping she will like it. I sent items that I like. I wrapped the package in wrapping paper and made sure to tape it well. I wanted her to have a festive looking box when she picks up her mail at the post office. I am all about making my mail cute and colorful these days!
Do any of you do mail art? I just usually add lots of cute stickers to my mail. Sometimes I will make a cute envelope out of scrapbook paper. Just depends on how much time I have!

I am trying to finish up on my Christmas Cards. It seems to take me more time to fill out my cards as I try to write in them and decorate them with stickers. I want my card to look like a gift by its self. I know that's crazy.
Here's a few that I have sent out a few weeks ago. My favorite is the red one. I didn't want to show addresses on here out of respect for my pen pals.
I need to take a photo of my Christmas cards I have received this year. I tape them to the back of a door in my living room so I can enjoy them.

Wow! Where does the time go? I am not sure I am ready for December to be here. Looks like I had better get my rear in gear and get everything accomplished that is on my list.
*Make cookies, candy, fudge
*Clean the house extra good (by Wednesday night!)
*Get some of the gifts wrapped
*Keep my car extremely clean! (this is the hardest thing for me to do)
*Make menu out for this the week. Then go buy everything I need.
My cousin made some awesome fudge the other day. I am going to look up the recipe and make it for my family as well!
Three Step Fudge
2 (9 ounce) bags milk chocolate melts
- Microwave chocolate and milk in large bowl on HIGH for 2 min., stirring after each minute.
- Stir in pecans and vanilla.
- Spread evenly in foil-lined 8-inch square pan.
- Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
- Store, covered at room temperature.
As most everyone knows I love easy and fast! Blenda thanks so much for sharing this recipe with me! My three boys love fudge.
Need to get busy with some holiday cooking!!
