Ornaments & Ornamentification

Wow what happened there?!?  Life suddenly got very hectic, very busy and I've not even had time to myself lately!  I've eaten out five days out of seven and its probably not helped my weight at all!  I've not weighed in this week and I'm thinking of skipping it I'm exhausted!  I've not done an iota of exercise either, the ordering of our new treadmill has turned into a circus and we still don't have it despite ordering it on December 3rd.  The only time I got into Taekwon-Do this week was tonight to teach.


So like I've said not a lot of time, not a lot of me time and far too many late nights!  What time I've managed to grab I've dedicated towards ornamentifying the JBW ornaments I stitched for the girls at work next week is our last week before the holidays and being off for two weeks.







Not only did I ornamentify but I received this charming fellow from Kathy in the mail on Tuesday!  Before she left I asked her to do an ornament exchange with me.  My ornament is now winging its way to Kathy, I sent it just this week... a little late.  I'm such a procrastinator when it comes to mailing things!  Thanks Kathy I love it!

Gorgeous ornaments, Dani! Don't beat yourself up too much about eating out...it's difficult to get everything done around this time of year. You'll get back on track!

Your ornies look fantastic! Love them! And cute ornie from Kathy!

Ugh...don't even talk to me about exercise. I popped a button on my pants today. If nothing screams "you need to go to the gym!", it's that! lol

Such bright and cheery finishes, Dani--I love the all!! And your nutcracker from Kathy will look great on your tree.

I do hope your treadmill arrives quickly--I can't imagine not getting in any exercise at this time of year...

Merry Christmas to you and your family :)

Ruth said...

Love the ornamentifying and I'm sure they will be loved and appreciated. Don't worry about the weigh in, with all the rushing about you need some down time. Hope your treadmill fiasco sorts itself out soon.

I'll bet your coworkers love those ornies! Kathy's nutcracker is so sweet!
We've had many nights out lately, eating on the run so my weight loss has stalled. I'm sure I'll have gained a few pounds at the end of it all. I'm just glad I lost quite a bit before the holidays.
