Hello wondrous people,
I have a few minutes to get a quick post out there, so here goes. Things are progressing for the "Putzin' Around" event. I've got all the supplies, and now I'm in the process of tearing my house apart cleaning and reorganizing. I'm about 50% done, but it's taking me a looooooong time. Thankfully, the appointments for my mom have slowed down this month, however, she's having possibly two out-patient procedures in the next few weeks. The first one is on the 12th and it's called an EUS or endoscopic ultra sound, and will determine whether she has the second, more complicated one called ERCP which will again be endoscopic and explore her bile duct for obstructions or malfunctions. We're hoping that after the first procedure we'll find that she doesn't need the second, as either of them can irritate the pancreas and cause further complications.
Okay, maybe this isn't gonna' be so short after all, anyhoo, here's some shots of the decor going up here:

collection of handmade
ornaments from last years
One last thing to show you. I bought a Danbury Mint collectible doll at Goodwill a while back with the intention of fixing her up for Christmas. This is what she looked like before:
And here she is after:
|Look at that sweet face|
|She's holding a vintage "looking" Santa|
compass that I've had for about 10 years
|I had to make a new pattern for her as|
she wasn't wearing a dress before
I think she turned out cute, and I like the way she's looking upwards like she's anticipating Santa to come any minute. I might do more to her later, but for now I like her simplicity.
Thanks for stopping by. If I get a chance to do another post before the party, I'll definitely do it. I will be back for sure after the party with more images.
Have a safe and happy Halloween!
