Last night I went to retirement party for two of my previous co workers. I have been retired from the Washington State Ferries now for 7 years and being invited and seeing some of my old cohorts was a hoot. It's funny when you don't see someone for awhile, your recollection of them is 7 years younger. Ahhhh the aging process, can be so cruel.
I was asked what I was doing these days and it reminded me that I hadn't been on my blog for awhile. I have missed it.
I made a commitment to myself to make all the Christmas presents this year and with that came the stress. I love creating and coming up with ideas on who was to get what, but I am a perfectionist at heart and with that I had to redo some things. Next year I will start earlier. I don't think I can correct the perfectionist in me. I'm too old to want to change that.
I found this great idea for picture holders in the magazine Somerset Home. It is using old door knobs and it was a big hit with my family. So easy to make and unique.
