Wish Me Luck

I've just sent in my first submission for a design team. My friend, Melanie, made me do it. She's been telling me for two years that I need to submit to magazines and when I told her about this Design Team opening she made me promise to send something. I've spent the past month working on the layouts for the November 26 deadline. It was a nice challenge for me to use some of my new stamp sets with the objective of showcasing as many different stamps as possible. I have now fulfilled my promise to Melanie. Nicky and Diane have also been urging me to submit layouts too so hopefully this will make them happy as well.
We had a great Thanksgiving. We went to a friends' house with several other families and had a big meal together. I think this is my first year not cooking (other than our move in day to our new home in England on Thanksgiving 2000). I've cooked every year since I got married. I really enjoyed having a break. I just had to make pies this year. I took two pumpkin and two chocolate cream pies for the meal. The weather finally turned cold this week and we have a fire in the fireplace tonight. We got a few inches of snow on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.
Now that my DT application is in, I need to get busy on Christmas presents (calendars) and Christmas cards. It's time to write my yearly newsletter. I guess next week we will put up the Christmas decorations. Wow, this year sure has flown by.

I wish that I was there to scrap with you. I will be able to say I was trained by a professional. Donna, I love your pages & got caught saving them on David's computer since his is the only one that gets e-mail. Lots of Hugs, Diane
