Second Ornament: 2014 Buffyfest Ornament Swap

Heidi sent this ornament she made from pages of a Buffy comic book.

Very nice.  Still trying to figure out how she did this.  Thanks, Heidi.

Ho Ho Bowl

It's that time again.  Time for the annual Company Christmas Party.

Now the "company" says "Holiday Party" but me being stubborn, I say "Christmas Party" on our local group's invitations.  Don't like it?  Then YOU plan it.  I'm planning it, it's a Christmas Party.

Where to this year?  Splitsville at Downtown Disney in Orlando.

I've been wanting to try this out and everyone was game to go, even though they'd have to pay some out-of-pocket, because this blew our budget out of the water.

Splitsville has casual dining and bowling lanes on two floors.  We were placed upstairs, Yay!

We had appetizers, dinner and lots of fun bowling.

David said "Act casual!"

My blingy light earrings.

I had sent an email out to all the wives and co-workers; "Who wants to have an Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest?"    Five daring souls showed up ready to win.

The winner of the $25 Starbucks Gift Card!

We had a blast!

First Ornament: 2014 Buffyfest Ornament Swap

Here's my first ornament from Alissa in Pennsylvania.

Oh Wash!  How I love you!

I also REALLY like that the "wall paper" is the music to the Firefly theme!!

Thanks Alissa!

September Nails

Playing with stamping plates.

Design by CutePolish on YouTube. 

Tutorial by Luxuriousnails on YouTube

Then I decided to archive all my polishes, because I can.  I have other pictures on individual hands, with what brand is each, so I can go later, see a shade I want to use and know exactly what it looks like.

Oh, I am not done archiving.  That was just for the month of September.  :)

2014 Buffyfest Ornament Swap!

It's that time again!  The 7th Annual Buffyfest Ornament Swap!  I've taken part in 6 of the 7 years; missed year one.

Every year, you make an ornaments based on the Whedonverse and get put into a group where you exchange them.  The ornaments can be from Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, Cabin in the Woods, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog, The Avengers, Much Ado About Nothing...pretty much anything that Joss has touched.

If you want to see my past posts showing what I have done and received, click here.

This year, I went with fuse beads (like the Perler brand.)  Isabel is constantly having me iron her fuse bead creations and I thought, "Oooh, can I find patterns online?"

Yes, yes, I could.  I went with characters from "The Avengers."

Loki, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Hulk.

These were randomly sent to the other 5 participants in my group.  Can't wait to see what I get and to see how they like mine.
