It looks like a five dresser drawer but is really a cupboard! I wish they could have provided more photos of what's inside. If only I had $1998.00

Later on in the afternoon my half-brother Scott wanted to take a family picture by a lake that was close by. After much debate between my father and him we hauled ourselves down there to discover that the entire area was covered in duck poop. None of us had ever seen so much crap in our lives but Scott still wanted to take the picture. On the way home Scott ran out of gas in his car and had to have his sister and brother-in-law bring him some more.
Aunt Betty, Bryn, Bryn's children, Andee, and their boyfriends finally showed up. I was glad because I had made Aunt Betty a Black Santa cake since she didn't have a man to go home to this year.
As the day continued into evening Libby had more wine and continued to butcher Christmas carols. For a small preview of the torture we experienced please click on this link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2G6lZ_k-sUA
All in all it was a good Christmas. I am very glad that we have 363 days until the next one!

Also, I wore one of my new necklaces that I made and the buyer from Changing Hands loved it! I can't wait to finish them so I can list them in my shop.

Anyway, I found an old lined wicker basket with a hinged lid, some vintage scarves, a wooden bracelet, a purse, and a vintage skirt. I also found a necklace with a bunch of plastic elephant charms and I would like to use them to make bracelets with some other charms. I have been working on more scarves and even thought of making some pillows. When they are completed (hopefully today or tomorrow) I can start listing stuff on my Etsy store.
Yesterday I also finished my first shirt for my sewing class at Mesa CC.
Close up of stitching and snap button.
Overall I am happy that it turned out as well as it did for my first shirt. I don't love the fabric but it was what I had and I didn't want to buy any more. The collar was the most difficult part of the shirt but I'm sure next time it will be easier.
Yesterday I also made lemon cookies. (Boy, was I in a productive state!) The recipe states that the cookies should be in a ring shape but I decided to try the tried and true round shape. They came out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The glaze on top is also lemon flavored. YUM!
