Mojo One-Eighty-Nine & Mel's Magnificent Candle Man

Did you'all get in to vote today?  I hope so.  I almost did not - my day completely messed up from the get-go!  I think its because I decided to take the advice of the "Simplify Your Life" series book suggestion to make a schedule so I did that and had it all laid out... so of COURSE everything went south.  Well the first thing was that I guess I'd bopped my camera yesterday, in all the fire excitement, unbeknowndst to me (I KNOW thats not a real word!) I must have given it a small hit and the shutter zoom button sprung off.  Its only a month old.  I took the chance and drove it up to London Drugs - which was not in my schedule.  By the time I came back to the school where my Mr. teaches in the neighboring community it was mid morning, then my sweet friend Mel O transported me home, down to vote, home again.  Sigh.  I made it through. 

Right, so my card, which I did in pecks between my latest tackling of a huge bank of storage closets in the basement. 

This is as good as I can get with my iphone, seeing as I am camera-less for a few days.  I know my Mr. will loan me back the Nikon - might cost me a few batches of something baked, or perhaps a foot massage.  And a last note I just added three white pearls to this shrivelly strip because I forgot the three dots.  Various Stamps etc, can't find the names. Sorry!

I talked about my friend Mel O the other day - she's a dear friend and she comes and stays over now and again, which she did this last Saturday night and we watched an Janette Oke movie, ate sweet/salty homemade popcorn with toasted coconut and toasted walnuts and painted our nails - purple, yeh believe it or not the Mr. picked it for me.   But I had to share this craft Mel makes.  This is her quaint Santa figurine she's making for a family friend.  Totally made from Beeswax sheets - these take her FOREVER to build.

She says the beard will go much further down.  I have a set of these, a Mr. and Mrs. S... mine have wicks in, but I'll never burn them, they are too much fun to look at.
