The last of the Christmas quilling...at least I think so!

Thank you so much for all your sweet comments on my homesick post...and that's all I want to say about that.    (Tips hat to Forrest Gump)

I have one custom card to finish for tomorrow - I've had about 3 false starts so far, since I've made many cards for the recipient, and I'm trying to get it just right. I'm happy with all the 'rejects,' they just didn't make the cut to have the name on them. I cleansed my crafty palate by making a birthday card, and once I'm done posting I'll be heading back to the desk to see what I can come up with.

The forecast has been changed - we were supposed to get 5 centimetres of flurries today, but now the DJ is reporting 10 cm on the way. White Christmas? Thank goodness. Not enough to impact travel safety (at least once it's done falling today) but enough to cover up the muddy brown ground, and the weather will hover under zero for at least the next few days so that it will stay around. Score! 

I don't know that I'll blog again before Christmas, so let me take this chance to wish every one stopping by a Merry Christmas - and since today is Festivus, please feel free to air your grievances below. 

xoxo,
Jessi
