IS IT REALLY DECEMBER?

How is that possible?
Haven't decorated or shopped.
I did do a couple of crafts. (M-Cat would be proud.)
Inspired by Connie at Shady Creek Lane.
I bought 50 pounds of chocolate to dip.
I must be insane.
Maybe I'll do all of those things after I watch the best Christmas show ever.
Claymation Christmas!
Most hilarious show ever!

I can't believe that it's December either!! I still have my Fall decorations up - don't think they will come down until at least Saturday! Your Christmas blocks are so cute!

50 pounds of chocolate, WOW you are ambitious! I'm lucky if I make cookies - you candy makers just amaze me!

What Christmas show are you watching?! I don't think I've ever seen it?!

Hugs,
Barb

Did you say 50lbs of chocolate. OMGosh girlfriend. lol
Well if it makes you feel better I have done nothing absolutely no decorating shopping or anything.
I am hoping to bake a few gifts this weekend since it is suppose to rain here. Yea for rain!
Usually by now I am all freaked out that it is December and I am behind but so far I have not. lol It is coming I can assure you.
Wanted you to know I am having a neat giveaway and hope you have a chance to enter if you have not already.
Oh I love your crafts....see you have done something
Love

Hilary said...

I love the Merry Christmas blocks!! I so miss 2x4 projects! They don't do Super Saturdays out here! And I wish I still lived close so I could get some of that chocolate!

Lisa said...

I'd be watching the show, nibbling on the bar and be amazed when it somehow went from 50 down to 12 pounds. But that's just me. You're different. Lucky you. :)

Julie Harward said...

WOW..50 lbs. you are my kind of gal! I am not a crafter though, that would be the last on my list. Have a wonderful December because I am sure it will fly by just like November did! ;D

I'm so impressed with all you accomplish. Your blocks are really fun, and 50 pounds of chocolate??? You are crazy...FUN! December has snuck up on me. I am decorating and figuring this new house out. I'll post pics soon just for you!

" Hit It......." said...

I am impressed..50lbs of chocolate. Take and after picture of all that you have dipped.

I haven't shopped either and it is giving me anxiety. I hate shopping at this time of year. I never know what to buy anyone!

blueviolet said...

I've only seen Claymation Christmas once so far. Not fair. Is it on tv or can I buy it?

Life is good! said...

we are true soul sistahs! that is my favorite Christmas show also. we even bought it a few years ago so that we could watch the carol of the bells! you know the one with the fly. love love love it! have fun dipping your life away with 50 lbs of choc!

Maple Lane said...

You said the MAGIC word: CHOCOLATE! I'll be right there (with Gigi) in our '32 coupe!!!!!!

Barbaloot said...

That claymation stuff creeps me out! But that chocolate looks lovely.

Kerin said...

It's so hard to believe that December is here!!
I keep saying that for every winter day that passes, it brings us one day closer to Spring :)

I'm impressed with your crafting and with your chocolate dipping.
My mom used to dip thousands of Chocolates during the holidays, and even helped our friends out... they owned a candy shop in Provo.

Keep warm, and keep that chocolate cool, and have a great weekend!!

2010 felt like a loooooooong year. 2011 just went by at the snap of the fingers, I can't believe it's the end of the cycle already!

Those claymation dinosaurs reminded me of the TV show I forget the name, but basically dinosaurs living like people in their own houses with their own outfits. It was kinda good show, family wise... even though it was somewhat stupid. I loved it!

Furry Bottoms said...

Notice I am deliberately ignoring the mention of your chocolate. Oh shoot, I lost control after all!

StitchinByTheLake said...

Surely that's a typing error - 50 lbs. Who could carry 50 lbs out of the store? Right? Tell me I'm right? blessings, marlene

Mumsy and Furkids said...

Wow!! 50 pounds of chocolate are you ready for Christmas or what!!! Love the blocks they are very pretty. Hugs

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

I think I've been missing out as I've never seen Claymation Christmas! And I haven't started my Christmas shopping either, at all. I may still wait another week. :)

Good luck with your 50lbs. What a fabulous amount!!!

Ginger said...

I love your Christmas blocks! They are adorable. :) We are in the process of cleaning as I speak so that we can bring the tree in and set it up. I was thinking about how, when I was a SAHM, I would tip the couch over and clean underneath it regularly... now that I'm a working mom, I'm so glad Christmas comes around once a year so that I can clean under them since we have to move the furniture around for the tree. (Was that a run-on sentence or what? haha) It always feels like we win the lottery when we clean under the couches... the prize is usually trash, cheese crackers, pens, pencils, and bobby pins. :) Today I struck gold and got one of my spoons back. haha...

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love your craft items. I know I haven't done much yet. All I know for sure is that it will be done by the 24th!

Queenie Jeannie said...

You lost me at "50 pounds of chocolate"!!!! WOW!!

So....my darling....making me some sweeties for Christmas are you??? You are SO kind!!!!

Cherie said...

The chocolate is making me drool!

Yvonne said...

I'm a little further along than you are ; )

I've never heard of that show.

And 50 pounds of chocolate--WOW, you are going to be one busy lady. (As if you are not already incredibly busy ; )

Connie said...

Great job on the blocks, they both turned out adorable.
Sounds to me like a little bit of heaven with 50 lbs. of chocolate sitting in your house. Oh how I wished I lived closer, I would love to be your taste tester when you make all that candy.

lifeinredshoes said...

FIFTY POUNDS OF CHOCOLATE?!

gigi said...

50 lbs of Chocolate??? You are gonna be very busy!! I couldn't stand it, I'd just keep nibbling off a piece every time I walked thru the kitchen!
Good luck, Twisted Sister!

Nancy Face said...

Your blocks are so pretty!

Emmy said...

I totally forgot about that show! Too funny

And love love the blocks! So cute!

mCat said...

Ohhhhhh, you crafted....how cute! I crafted this morning too, but it wasn't near as cute and colorful as yours! You beat me there

And is it Christmas time? Really? I keep thinking that if I ignore it, it will go away.

Finally, HOLY SHITAKE MUSHROOM!! I didn't even know a 50lb bar of chocolate existed! You are amazing

Heather said...

How do you have that Claymation Christmas! Where did you find that! I loved that as a kid!

Your crafts are adorable! Good job!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

50 pounds!?! So uh.... don't suppose you're up for a visitor?

I bought the wrong chocolate for dipping and it ended up still never quite 'drying.'
