Ida Clare, It's Black Friday in Big Thicket

Black Friday Shopper who has been waiting in line a really long time.    
Dear Creative Chicks,

It's Black Friday in Big Thicket.  What's in your my wallet?  A picture of Alec Baldwin. Happy?

Sigh.  I am a bargain shopper.  I will hold off buying something I want until it goes on sale.  You never catch me without a 40% off coupon off from Hobby Lobby.  I buy used stuff and am happy to get it.  I shop garage sales and thrift stores, but I just can’t get revved up about getting up early, standing in line shivering in the cold with otherwise normal people who turn into stampeding idiots once the Friday gets black enough to open the doors of a corporate giant needing to balance their bottom line.

You go girl.  I don’t blame you.  It’s a big game to see if you can be one of the ones who cashes in on saving the cash.  I just can’t do it.  I don’t have the stamina to deal with some of the strapping big lumberjacks who may be carrying a weapon at Wal-mart.  After all, there is a reason they’re wearing camouflage clothing.  They think they’re invisible and we won’t see them stealing our hard won X-box from our buggy while we are bent over wrestling a six-year old for a Furby. 

Black Friday in Big Thicket should be named, Black-Eye Friday or Black and Blue Friday, because if it’s a ridiculous enough sale and they have only six of them to go around, somebody is gonna get hurt.

It’s too much for me.  Besides, I’ve got to keep my little digits ready for Cyber Monday where I can spend every dime I have in the comfort of my footed pajamas.

Don’t forget to shop at Shell Out More at Small Store Saturday and Sell Your Soul Sunday!

Me -- I’ll be sleeping off my turkey and dressing binge.

Ida Clare it's a Tag Book

Hi Creative Chicks,

Well, yesterday I officially stopped celebrating Halloween. It took me a while to eat all that candy and drink up the left over witches brew. I will admit there are still a few folks I'd like to put a spell on, but I guess they will have to wait until next year or at least until I get a chance to vote them out of office.

Here is a tag book that I have been working on.  I think I already shared the first one as a sneak peak, but that was a long time ago.

I'm going to put a ring through the holes and tie some ribbon around it and call it done.  Let me know what you think in the comments.
