do you black friday?


I do not.

I had the  whole day 

 (no school, no exercise, no reason to leave the house) 

to play.

We put on Wives and Daughters...
and I crafted the day away.

Oh, happy day.

Here is a sampling 
of what I made 


The Christmas  season is officially upon us...
ready or not, here we go.


today is the last day to sign up for my giveaway here ...
do it...you won't be sorry.

You are one talented lady, that is beautiful...love it! Here is Canada we normally don't have Black Friday, but it is slowly creepy over here. I stayed away from the stores that day. Diane

Love your photos of your goodies for your sale. I love that song, Oh Come little children!!
I did black friday a little, but not to buy any gifts. Was in Indiana for Thanksgiving and the kids wanted to go out for a bit. We didn't even leave until probably 10 or 11 am and it really wasn't bad out there where we were. :)
Blessings~

I love what you created!! Don't you just love days like that!
Did you get your printer to work for you for the transfers?

Diane said...

No, I don't. I avoid crowds if I can and I think they may be losing the essense of Christmas with all that hullabaloo. You created some beautiful things. Diane

Beautiful crafting! I remember that song "O Come Little Children" from years ago. It is a pretty little song and I think I sang it in choir as a child. Blessings, Pamela

I love the skate! We have started to have Black Friday sales here in Canada too but I chose not to participate. Enjoy your crafting..

Hi Rene,
Your craft is so pretty! No, I don't do Black Friday either. As a matter of fact, I stay away from the stores as much as possible during the days leading up to Christmas. We make it a practice to share special time together rather than do alot of shopping.
Hugs,
Mary

It is a family tradition to do black friday for a least 2-3 hours, then off the the Christmas Tree Farm to cut our tree down. Beloved traditions.

So glad you had time to create those beautiful creations!

Wishing you a wonderful week.

June said...

Sounds perfect to me! I don't do Black Friday ever! It's too crazy out there!
I love your new creations and I also love your movie preference. Isn't that a wonderful movie?
I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful Rene. Ours was awesome. The only one that wasn't here was Ember because we had to share with Mark's parents this year :( but it was so much fun to have everyone for the whole weekend. I can never get enough of the grands.
hugs from here...
