Helllllllllllooooooooooo!!! Are you almost ready for Christmas?

I am not really ready, but that is OK. After all, it isn't about if I am ready or not! :) We had some company for an early Christmas gathering on Friday, and ended up with a house full of sickies. The flu hit us bad over here! Alllllllllllllllll the way through till today. I have been worrying that I will get sick too and I can't get sick, I have things to finish up at work, but I can't worry about that anymore either. I did not get all the things I wanted to get done finished, but those things happen. I did manage to get two and a half trees put up last week though, and my class in Chicago area is finished, and I am done Christmas shopping, including the gifts for the giving tree at work. So I am pretty darn happy about that. Other good news for me is that next week I only have to work Monday and Tuesday, the rest of the week is FREE!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOO, creativity, here I come!!! I am going to get started on a tag swap and an ATC swap I am in over at Scrapbook News and Review. If you haven't checked that place out yet, I highly encourage you to do so! It is fabulous.

I did finish up some more fun and festive tree placemats in the last two weeks, but did not get a chance to take pics. I will share the pattern I created for these placemats after Christmas, so you can work on some for next year. Alrighty? Here is a pic of one I did in September to remind you what I am talking about -

I also finished up some projects for Zutter, but can't share those quite yet. Even though I had very limited creative time in the last two weeks, I am pretty happy with the projects I did get done.

A reminder too, don't forget about the faboo crop at Citrus Tree Studio on December 31- Jan 2! It's gonna be awesome!!!

Well, I need to finish addressing my Christmas cards. I am so behind this year, yikes. Hopefully I will get them mailed before Christmas.

Have a wonderful and blessed week! Merry Christmas to you all!

Hope you had a merry Christmas girl! Happy New Year!

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
