Peace



Hi!

Seems like I'm always in a hurry lately, and honestly, I AM done with almost everything for Christmas. I think that's my problem. I keep adding more extras to my list! 

This morning I decided I needed to make some peanut brittle, after all it IS Brent's favorite. Then I added some gingerbread men, my daughters favorite. But what about lefsa? I cheated this year and bought some...but honestly I feel SO guilty. It's been a tradition in my family for generations. Back on the list!
So much for being ready!

Today I have another quick post,after all, I gotta get some pretzels dipped....yes... I added that back too. I already have about six different treats in the freezer, which is plenty already!
I need an intervention!

I'm entering this card at CAS ology...Memory Box snow border die

  1. I know what you mean about never being done....and adding more to your list! My list is always on hold during the day, as I have my little "helper"!!! Anyway, your card is delightful! It reminds me of the peppermint candle I have burning right now....delicious! And I have that "peace" and haven't used it all season!

  6. The snowy edge is so pretty against the red! It's hard to stop at Christmas time. If I think I'm done early, I always add way more and then I'm in a panic to finish! My DD added some calendars to her wish list so I'm frantically trying to get them done.
