Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...
I just finished these a little while ago. You'd think with how tiny they are, it would have been really fast to make them, but I was up until 3:30am last night working on the original. Then, this morning, I took the original to make copies. Then it took quite a while to bring them home, add some color and cut and fold.
These are the projects I finished and mailed off today.
I'm thankful that I'm thankful. ;)

http://www.freerice.com/index.php This is fun. Even though I donated a heck of a lot of rice grains, I never did get a score over 47. Watch your score on the bottom right - it changes with each question...something I didn't realize at first. I thought you just went until you missed and then got a final score. Not so!
There is nothing like joining a journal swap to open your eyes to what a dull life you lead. Well, me, anyway. I joined a swap on Swap-Bot a while back, that involves keeping a journal for a minimum of 20 days/20 entries, then swapping it permanently with your assigned partner at the end of that time. Each entry is supposed to have one page of writing and one page of related art work or illustration. My gosh! I could almost run 20 copies of my Day One entry and glue one to each journal page. I never realized that before. There is slight variance in my daily reporting of whether or not I went out for lunch or something, but that's about it. So, in keeping with that scintillating subject, here is what I have been eating for meals lately when I don't go out:
Whew! Halloween came and went in a flash this year. I felt like I had enough time to prepare for it all, until the day before, about noon, when Andrew called and reminded me that it was just a little over 24 hrs. away. YIKES! So I rushed around trying to get the rest of the Halloween preparations done, as well as finish and send off 5 down-to-the-deadline swaps, and get other regular and semi-regular stuff done. Halloween went well, but was a little on the skimpy side this year as to my yard decorations and all that. I handed out Halloween pencils to 149 trick-or-treaters this year. Down from last year, but not too bad. The first ones arrived at 6pm and the last ones at 8:45 or so. There were three flat-bed trailer 'floats'. One with all the kids seated on orange lawn chairs, one really big one with hay bales, and my cousin's with orange rope lights strung up and plastic jack-o-lanterns hanging from it. But no 'Gator Caravan' this year. Oh, and about the pencils - only one group seemed disappointed in not getting candy, and almost half the kids were visibly and vocally excited with getting them. LOL - go figure!
