But, what better way to send a Christmas greeting...
Prayers for all of your travels, be safe and enjoy being with the ones you love.
I'm early with this message as we travel this week to watch our youngest daughter graduate. Going to spend the Christmas vacation with family!
The plans are to get crazy with decorating little cakes this year. Several stores carried the cutest cake molds and what started with one Christmas Tree mold, quickly turned into a collection.
Here's how the story goes... I'm in Jo-Ann store to pick up some cotton batting - it's crowded and I take a detour through the baking aisle. I see this mini trees cupcake mold and swear up and down that it is the cutest thing ever, but I don't buy it because I'm following my rule... Go in and get what you need - Do Not Get Distracted!
I put the mold down. But, a week goes by and I'm still thinking about it. I decide that the next time I'm in the store, I will buy it!
You can guess the obvious: I return and the item is sold out.
Curses... we should know better by now! I didn't go out empty-handed though. This Snowflake pan was cute and on sale.
As I was in town, I meandered into the baking aisles of other stores.
Well, look what I found... Gingerbread Houses.
I sent pictures to the family and they were thrilled. We began making plans for a decorating party!
You know you're obsessed when you are traveling down the highway and see a Jo-Ann store from the road and scream, 'Take the next exit"!
Only had Choo-Choo Trains.! I got them
I once again, send pictures to the family and they say, " Great job, Mom".
That's enough for a party, right?
For the normal person, maybe.
But, I know where there is another Jo-Ann Fabric store... and, guess what?
They had 3-Christmas Tree molds on the shelf... WhoooooHooo!
Mine, Mine, Mine.
I'll take lots of pictures.
