Done in December…

I’m going to try and cram as much in this post as possible since I’m at 99% capacity here on WP. Decision time as to whether I delete or pay. I’m not leaving though so don’t worry about that – LOL.

When last I posted I showed the prompts for December Reflection. I haven’t been keeping up with that very well. I had a pop-up craft show on the 7th of December and I’ve been working a lot in the studio on special orders and to get the inventory back up. My exploding boxes have been a hit and I’m now making them for Valentine’s Day and will be doing some for other occasions.

I’m getting ready to make my Vision Cards for the year. I think my main focus groups are going to be the same, our house, my health, travel/adventure, relationships, prosperity and my crafty life. We’ll see what I can come up with to help me keep on track. Tonight is the full moon and I’ll be making my dream board as well. Sounds like all I do is have my head in the clouds, huh?

Well, back to earth, this happened…

The San Francisco Giants are using a photo taken of my son and I at one of the games we saw from the #415 section, a new area they made last year that comes with some special perks and giveaways. The hat was the freebie at that game in tribute to Brandon Belt. How exciting is that? My hubby is disappointed because he was supposed to go to that game with me and at the last minute changed his mind. I like to spend time with the kids on a one-on-one sometimes and this was a fun night.

And today I took my daughter into the City to get a COVID test and saw this:

It’s one of the Hearts of San Francisco that I wrote about last year in my A to Z. This one is from the 2004 collection. It was so cool to see it pop up. Driving through the city made me miss the times I went exploring so I may have to work that into my travel/adventures goals for next year.

And with that I’m going to call it a year, folks. I may write one more post during the week between Christmas and New Years but my mom is coming to stay for a few days next week and I want to be able to focus on her so we’ll see. I wish all of you, dear readers, a wonderful Christmas and here’s to a more prosperous and peaceful New Year.

  1. Hi, Janet!

    It doesn't surprise me one bit that your exploding boxes are a hit. They're cute. They're different. Using them adds a touch of whimsy and fun to your day. They're useful for a number of purposes, and they make attractive room accents and conversation starters. Yessum, if I were you I'd get busy creating exploding boxes for every holiday of the year as well as for birthday gift giving.

    I am also eager to look at your new set of Vision Cards, another great idea, one that keeps you pleasantly focused on your goals throughout the year. It's so cool that the Giants are using the pic of you and your son to promote section 415 memberships. You guys should consider a career in modeling! :)

    Yessum, I well remember those Hearts of San Francisco from your excellent A to Z series earlier this year. I hope your mom enjoys her holiday visit. Stay well, stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas, dear Janet. It has been a pleasure growing our friendship over the past year. I wish you and yours all the best in 2022!

    1. Dear Shady, I agree it has been fun getting to know more about you as well. I do believe my son could make it as a model, not so sure they'd want me.

      It will be fun to have my mom here. I feel like we are growing apart since she's been living with my sister, a situation that is hard for me to deal with.

      The moon is beautiful tonight and I am in the studio working away while listening to Christmas carols. Nothing better, IMO. Have a safe New Year if you go out!

  2. I'll be interested to see your new vision cards. I had a 21 in 21 list going on this year but it has not gone well. Have a lovely Christmas Janet and Happy New Year to you and yours!

    1. Hi Wendy! I will for sure post about them, if not between Christmas and New Year then definitely in January. I remember your 21 in 21. It is so hard to keep up sometimes. Don't beat yourself up about it though!

  3. The heart is awesome. Hope things with your mom go well. And those pesky Covid tests all stay negative!

    I'm enjoying #WRiTECLUB2021 over at DL Hammons blog. The entries are fun to read and vote on with feedback.
    Plus, I'm currently reading Patricia Lynne's Being Human.
    And I'm scheduling debut author interviews at Operation Awesome.
    I hope you have some fun plans for the rest of 2021. 🎄🎆⛸🥁✉🥂⛄ May your days ahead be merry and filled with positive experiences.

    1. Hi Lenni! Sounds like you are busy. I am hoping to go driving around tonight or tomorrow night to look at all the holiday lights. Some people really do it big and when I was younger we used to do that every year with my parents. It would bring back memories for my mom I'm sure but it's been raining around here and we won't be able to see much if it continues. Other than that I will be working in the studio. That's always the happiest place for me! I hope you and yours have a great holiday as well. Thanks for stopping by my friend.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
