Last night, I lost one of my new Opal Earrings. I was upset and afraid to tell Shrek about it since I'd only had them for about 2 weeks.

This morning, on my way into work, I was walking with my head down to keep the snow out of my face and what did I see on the asphalt? My earring, undamaged, no one had run over it or walked on it.

Yay! Once I lost a really cute cat earring. It was gone for years. Then one day my sister looked down right outside the back door of my mom and dad's house, and there it was in a crack. It had apparently been pushed down into the crack, then it eventually surfaced again.

My happy venting is that right before the mail I said a prayer that there would be something good in the mail. Not only did the SolidWorks books James ordered come, but the gift we bought our friends' son (which said it could come as late as the 24th) came, we got a Christmas card from a good friend, and there was money from my dad. Definitely good mail today.

Christmas sewing? Is that for gifts? New outfit?

taxlady, for gifts. i made a regular sized pillow and two throw pillows out of theme or the movie tangled. also bought a comforter with Rapunzel on it .these are for four year great grandaughter . made a baby quilt for four month old great granddaughter. i generally don't sew for myself. these days patterns and fabric are so expensive that it is cheaper to buy. i do lots of stuff for my home. i really enjoy it. not so much with this cold.

Got a huge rent reduction at our business location. I wasn't kidding when I told the Landlord that I can get a similar space with plenty of parking for almost 1/2 the rent.
At least that's one huge relief during these bad economic times.

Congratulations. I know how good it feels to complete a project. What's next?
