People are asking about the Memory Box order. We've emailed them and are awaiting their reply. We'll let you know when we hear back from them!

Calendar note:  Art 'n Soul's Journal Club meets this Friday afternoon between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. Anyone is welcome to participate . . . you work on whatever you want (i.e., making a journal, making journal entries, creating collages for your journal, et al.) at your own pace, and share ideas with other journal enthusiasts. And all it costs is your time!

Here are some pics of my 12 Days of Christmas book for the class on Sunday, November 20. We're using Webster's Pages Botanical Christmas papers, one of which is a sheet of doors. You'll be 'opening doors' for each of the 12 days. And there will be plenty of room for journaling and/or photos if you'd like to add those. We're going to have fun on the afternoon of the 20th, so I hope you'll join us.

I've been making Christmas Cards for the Olympia Paper Dolls' collection that will be given to residents at Mother Joseph's at Christmas time. Here's a couple of the cards . . .

I'm still adjusting from falling back to Pacific Standard Time. I'm either really early or, like now, I've hit the wall so it's time for a nap. By the way, I was told by the landlord that perhaps the restaurant next door will open in about 10+ days; they're having an inspection of some kind next Monday. Having Thai food next door is like having Baskin & Robbins sharing a building with Taco Time . . . for me, 'restaurant row' nirvana!
