Waiting for Santa Claws

I can't end the year without at least one cat photo! Below is sweet Harold who loves to lay by the holiday centerpiece. The only thing I added was the hat and border, courtesy of the Picnik application on Picasa. Harold and I wish everyone a wonderful end to their holiday season!

MIA No More

Wow - 60 days since my last post. If this was a job, I'd be fired by now! I am not making excuses but I have been "heads down" focused on the holidays and since my last post, was determined to complete the 28 snowflake ornaments designated for this year's gift to friends and co-workers. That might not sound so daunting but I sandwiched in bits of beading between work, travel and those dreadful chores. Plus I did need to talk with hubby from time to time. I was thrilled to finish all 28 and the photo below shows a few artfully (hopefully) displayed on my jewelry tree.

I also had a great time baking this year. I think I was possessed by my dearly departed Mother's spirit because I was a literal dervish in the kitchen, making dozens and dozens of cookies for who knows who. Virtually everyone I saw over the last two weeks received merry bundles of sugar. I wish I would have taken pictures of them because my guess is that this baking frenzy may take a couple years to return.
Pulse: New iPad App Discovery
I also discovered a new (to me) iPad app that makes it so much easier to keep up with my favorite blogs. It's called Pulse and below you see a screen shot. Now, when I turned in at night, I can lay in bed and scroll through Pulse to see what my bloggie friends are up to. I'm not promoting the app, just sharing if any of you experience similar time challenges. And because I have learned so much from my bloggie pals, especially this holiday season, I vow to do a better job in 2012 - for my 9 or so followers! :-)
