I 've been out of service, but....


 I am now up and running again.
We had a storm on Saturday which knocked out our electricity.
Our electricity was back on late Saturday night, but unfortunately lighting hit the power box for our landline, internet and TV.
It's taken 5 days for someone to come out and replace the box.
(Not sure what happened to that 24 hour commitment)
Needless to say.... I was not a happy camper.

But...

~ On a happier note ~

I have been making "wrapping paper" and "gift tags" for Christmas gifts.
If you read my blog at all, you know how much I dislike spending my hard earned dollars on wrapping paper or gift bags that will be thrown away.

I ordered these tote bags from Oriental Trading Company and will be embroidering the recipient's name on each.


These totes measures 11" x 4 1/2" x 15 1/2" and are made from 600D polyester which is a bit thinner than I thought they would be, but they seem to be sturdy enough to hold several books with no problem.

What will go in them?
I haven't a clue as yet, but hey, my wrapping paper and name tags are ready to go!
