Let it Snow!

Morning!!! Today we may actually have our first real snow accumulation that will require a shovel. It was snowing like crazy earlier but it all we shall see. It would be kind of nice to have snow for Thanksgiving.

I have only gotten my urine test back and that came back a-ok!!! The doctor was happy...ME TOO!!! The ultrasound was really quick and easy. I am guessing that I will have those results at some point this week. I have been flooding my kidneys per doctor's orders and that is getting easier. (60-80 oz is a lot!!!)

I have been working on some new projects these days. In Chicago, I went to the store Anthropologie for the first time...I loved it! There was a really pretty scarf that I really wanted but didn't want to pay $68 for. I'm trying to make my own version for about $15. I will show you pics if it turns out. I, also, got some other ideas from there to add a little something to some Target sweaters that I got on clearance. So another $15 instead of $78. I will post those too when they are done. And lastly, I am making some reproduction mitten ornament/gift card holders that I saw at Crate and Barrel. They were selling for $8 each and I think mine are about 25 cents. I will take pics of those too, later today. I have only made 2 so far. So, I have been keeping busy.

Sorry for the lack of photos...they will come! Now, I am off to wrap my sons and sister-in-laws Christmas gifts to get them off to UPS. (Beating the rush and my son likes to put his gifts under his tree in Oklahoma).

Have a wonderful day and Thanksgiving (if I don't post again)!!! Hugs!!!

I love finding expensive things/ideas and duplicating them for a fraction of the cost!! It's almost like a rush!! LOL!!!
Stop by my blog- I have something for you!!
Have a great day!

Hi Kim, I am still waiting for our first snow with some accumulation. We had a itty bitty tiny one. Sounds like you have been a busy girl. I've never been to Anthropology but I droll over the catalog.

Hi Kim ~ It's currently snowing and snowing and snowing up here...the roads have gotten bad! So glad your urine test came back all right :) Can't wait to see all the things you've been working on!

Happy Thanksgiving to you, as well!

I'm glad to read that your test came back ok. That must be a nice relief!! I hope the results of the ultrasound are just as good. That is a lot of water. I remember when I used to try to get 60 oz in a day. It was hard!!! My doctor actually told me I was drinking too much!

It sounds like you are being really crafty! I can't wait to see what you are doing!

take care,

Glad to hear your testing so far has been ok.

Can't wait to see your project pics. Sounds like fun stuff.

Hi Kim,
Glad your test went well.
You sound very busy!! I love Anthropologie, it is quite pricey though.
It's a fun store. They have wonderful sales a couple of times a year. That is when I shop there.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving,

Hey Kim,
The condo and view look wonderful. I have never seen Lake Michigan except from downtown Chicago. It looks so great from your view--the beach seems so neat and uncluttered. Certainly a more peaceful looking location than where I've been on the Lake.
So glad the test results you have received so far are good ones--still got ya in my thoughts and prayers.
I hope you have a great TGiving, too, Kim. Will you be cooking the feast? I will be--our little gathering will be small but wonderful. Blessings, Dana

Good results so far. Can you believe how much some things cost. crazy. it is great when you can recrete it yourself for much less.
Happy THANKSgiving!


Hi Kim,
That's great news:)
Can't wait to see the mitten cards and may have to "copy" your idea.




May peace and love and joy come to you throughout the beautiful holiday season!
