and you thought...

i wouldn't be updating this week. pbbsstsht. come on. i'm way more addicted than that.

well so far we've scored some loot and stuffed our faces although Christmas just didn't feel the same this year. probably because as soon as we got here, everyone headed out to visit their families and left us with nothing to do. So Christmas consisted of a movie, some sushi and opening presents at around 8pm. kind of sad. i know traditions aren't the real reason or purpose for Christmas, but they sure make it nice. oh well. there's always next year.

happy Christmas!

well, tomorrow morning we're off, and although i'll be seeing some of you {MB & Sarah & Starbucks = good times; Jen + TJMaxx = expensive times} i won't be seeing others of you. so merry Christmas mom. and wannabe. and that crazy chic in maryland. and daniel who reads my stories and thoughts and never posts a single comment. i know you're out there. and anyone else out there who loves candy canes. merry Christmas to you too.

and don't forget, i'll have 3G's worth of photos when i return!

bathroom: codename FAB

bathroom remodel, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

here it is as promised. i wanted to wait until we found and installed the mirror, but it's not happenin this week. considering i haven't even packed a single article of clothing for our ten day trip...

the mirror in there now is just for function until we get a new one, then that's coming out and we're making custom shelving in that cubby...but the bathroom IS fully functional! and there's a ton more room {i can even shave without cracking my elbow on the shower wall or getting hit with a cold wet shower curtain!}, AND the husband loves the color so much he even defends it to not-so-sure guests...so all is well in the house with two bathrooms.

legen....wait for it....dary.

we finished our bathroom! seriously. can you say it's finished if you still have to hang the shower curtain rod, buy a mirror {and install said mirror} and hang a towel rack somewhere? i didn't think so. but i don't care. it's finished in my mind. i WILL have a photo of it this week. wouldn't want you all to have to go the entire vacation without knowing just how fabulous my bathroom turned out.

hope everyone's weekend was swell. i was up late making peppermint bark. i'm definately never participating in a holiday cookie exchange ever again.

presents galore

presents.jpg, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

i still have a LOT of stuff to do and i thought i had such a handle on everything.

we got some gifts online so those arrived and need to be wrapped. i still haven't sent out any Christmas cards, but i'm hoping to get to that tonight. late tonight i will be buying pre-made everything from bj's for the party this saturday. i'm trying not to add more things to my list of to-do's.

we're planning out our trip still. {which, ladies in CT, i would love to make a girl's date and go see 'the Holiday' and maybe spend too much on flavored drinks and silly socks. anyone game?} and i still have to send my neices their gifts, which i spent a week looking for a box big enough to fit them all...oh and eggnog! i can't forget the eggnog.

i attempted spinning again. and an abs session and now my whole body feels like it was tied to railroad tracks and run over. and then the train backed up and ran over it again.

last-minute stocking stuffers, indeed

magnet sets, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

i've been wanting to make these little suckers for ever, and friday night i finally did! they're perfect for little gifts that say, so i didn't spend a lot on you, but i did actually think about what i bought because i care {but not enough to spend oodles of money on you}....

these bubble magnets are a little under 3/4 of an inch and fabulous. there's two designs, the sushi set and the snowman set. the sushi set {i love cause it} comes in a mini take-out box, the snowman {or snowgirl since it's pink} set comes in a round metal tin. both are ready to ship! NOW!

they're $6 a set or 2 for $10. {one sushi for you, one snowmen for a gift...} i'm offering free shipping, and i promise to have them in the mail asap so you get them in time for the holidays....

there are only five sets of each design so e-mail me at tinkerellen@yahoo.com for first dibs! happy shopping...

UPDATE: only 2 SUSHI SETS LEFT! still have 5 SNOWMEN SETS...

and the weiner is...

wannabe! for including both 'nuts' and 'gay' in a poem about fall. that was a pretty weak turnout people. i guess picking numbers is much easier. BUT i couldn't ignore the effort of cool peeps just to give you all the chance at some sweet junk. so nothing free for lazy people!

amanda, you can expect your box to go out this saturday morning along with some other fun stuff for some other fun people, and the christmas gifts to my nieces of course. but you're only getting the box. i'm pretty sure my nieces would cry if i sent their presents to you.

the amazing disappearing appendage

IMG_6337_flickr.jpg, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

i just had to throw this in here. it's 11pm and we're supposed to get THIS until noon tomorrow. it's a blizzard. but it's not. because this is what winter's are up here. so technically, no matter how much snow we get tonight, EVERYTHING will be open tomorrow. and we'll all have to go to work. and it's officially winter. and i'm not sure i really mind yet.

how to woo me

my husband came home yesterday with an early Christmas present, a 2 gig memory card for my digital camera. that's about 700 pictures worth of space. i'm stoked. it means along with my current 1 gig card, i can take an estimated 1,000 pictures this Christmas. not that i will, but it's nice to have that kind of digital power.

dipped in chocolate

what what? is the contest too difficult. we could just go back to picking numbers but then where's the fun in that? for me i mean. 3 days until i announce the winner. which is really either sara or amanda at this point. so good luck grrrls.

i finished painting the bathroom lastnight! it's delicious. the walls look like melted chocolate. i love it. tonight we'll put back the shower rod and hopefully be showering in there tomorrow morning since it's getting super cold lately and showering in the frigid basement at 7 am isn't working out for me. this weekend the tile should go down, then the toilet back in and the sink installed and voila. but that's positive thinking. if all goes perfect i'll post some pics for you all next week.

gimmee please

give_away.jpg, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

it's here! finally. and it's all packaged and rearing to go. as soon as....

so i'm working on a mini-project and i basically want everyone else to do the research for me, SO. send me your favorite fall quote or poem (or just google something) and i'll pick my favorite. i know it's winter, but let's try to step back for a bit, shall we? i'll announce the winner {weiner} by friday since i'll be shipping on saturday! {unless the response is weak, people.} i want to make sure it gets there in time to use the handy dandy little Christmas candle. (also included are some fun magnets, a cell phone charm, frame, note cards, necklace, ect...)

ps: i also added a few last minute items, including a couple of friday faves...

friday faves: eureka!

not the vacuum cleaner. ideas. i love them. i have them all day long but i always forget to write them down. but when i do, i love coming across them and actually creating whatever it was i thought of. which brings me to my latest idea which will be coming soon, just in time for Christmas...it's a unique little stocking stuffer, and that's all i can say! keep checking back in the next couple of weeks...

also, there will be a give-away box SOON...i have a few things already made for it and i'm working on a couple more, i'ld love to give this baby away for Christmas. (did i mention i'm really looking forward to Christmas this year?)

hopefully you all don't have a huge list of things to do this weekend like me. plus i'm slowly developing the first cold of the season, let's hope it's a quick recovery and doesn't cripple me all weekend since there's painting and tree picking-out to do. happy friday.
