Yesterday

I finished four different Christmas card designs.

I went to a birthday party.

I went to Target with PapaBear and the kids to pick out Lego's (using birthday money - thanks Mom!)

I sat in the Target cafe so I could but the final touches on the 4th card.

I went to Sam's Club to print 4 batches of cards.

I corrected a mistake on one of the cards. (Thank goodness for laptop's a good batteries so I could do it in the car!)

I went back into Sam's Club to reprint a batch of cards.

I met a client to go over the layout for her blog book.

I went to the mall to grab a bite to eat and grab some names of potential book publishers in hopes of getting a generic version of Alphabitty Moments published.

I delivered a batch of Christmas cards to a client.

I begged my way past three Sam's Club's employees so I could pick up the final batch of cards a minute after closing time.

I was given a free Italian Cream Cake (YUM!) because it was going to expire the next day.

I drove home and collapsed on the couch for a few hours before today....

Today we decorated our church for Christmas - 40 foot Christmas tree. 3 foot Moravian star. It's a tradition we really enjoy being a part of.

Julia had the meltdown of a lifetime when we got home because she was so tired, but once she was asleep I left for the office to prepare for a bookmaking class that I'm teaching tomorrow. Nothing like waiting until the last minute!

If you make books online and have any tips you'd like to share - please leave them in the comments. types of books, companies you recommend, digital scrapbook sites that you like, etc.....

Thanks!

Now that's busy. I feel like I've been lazy this weekend after reading that.

Busy day! Are you publishing your book?? I am using scrapblog and like some of the free options but they are charging for more of the items now.

You need a nap! I haven't even THOUGHT about Christmas cards...but I did get the kid's pictures taken at Wal-Mart. They did really good, but I couldn't help thinking "I wonder how awesome these would look if Carrie did them".
However, for $88, when I got 4 poses, and 66 pictures. Yeah for coupons.
Can we see the Christmas cards you designed?
