It always seems like at the beginning of November I feel like I’m on my bike at the top of a big hill and then all of sudden — whooosh I’m rushing down at some ungodly speed and I can’t find the brakes. Does anybody else feel like that? I woke up this morning and it’s started for me, I’m whooshing. This year should be less stressful than last year — no holiday weddings — but there sure is a lot to do before we close the chapter on 2007.
We’re really trying to give homemade and handmade this year and I’ve been getting heart palpitations thinking about the list of things to be made. I originally made a list in my moleskin from Abby but then a rubber-stamping friend helped me make this. Its just a normal white folder folded back on itself and in half again to make an accordion. We decorated it with paper and added an envelope and a few sheets of trimmed card stock. Since these photos my lists have been added and there sure is a lot to be done. Somehow, having a list makes it seem more manageable though. If it’s a pretty list like this, all the better.
