We are going to have a Christmas Exchange among all our Garden Art friends.

Here's how it works. We'll start with a list of names of those who want to participate. Each of the participants will create a gift related to Garden Art, both indoor and out. It must be handmade/homemade and mailable.

I'll keep the list along with your addresses that you'll send me via Tmail. On November 1, I'll let Ruby draw names and then I'll Tmail the name that you get to you along with the address. This will all be secret and until you get your gift, only Ruby will know who's sending it to you. You can show the gifts as you make them, if you want, and we can all drool over them, but the names will be a surprise until the gift is received and opened. Ruby will be fair, she's already promised.

I have the names here of those who have said they want to participate. If you want your name added to the list just let me know. Don't forget to send me your address via Tmail.

This is all in fun, nothing expensive except postage. The gift can have a Christmas theme or it can be for use in your garden anytime. It's all up to you. Have fun with it!!

Here's the list so far, I can change it at anytime. Deadline for adding or removing a name and for getting addresses to me is November 1. The gifts will be mailed anytime after the first of December.

I like having this much time to get something made, It will be relaxing and not rushed and pressured.

It turned chilly here today, should last all week.
Ruby is driving me nutz wanting warmer clothes.

Everybody loves Ruby. Neighbors stopped by yesterday off and on....she caused a total scene, let me tell you!! I was nearly embarrassed.

She isn't one of 'Those type girls' is she. She's a vamp/tramp/princess.

Who knows what Ruby is, she changes at the drop of a hat.
She was grumbling that she was cold because the temps dropped today. I told her to put on one of my old shirts just like I was wearing. She said she wouldn't be caught dead looking the way I look today.
Let her freeze.
Ha.

Sharon first I was eating nacho chips and cheese. Well, you almost made me choke when I read about ruby being cold.

Then I went to get a few oreos and dang if you didn't make me blow them out on my desk.
If you and Ruby keep fighting, I'll be skin and bones before long.

Please go out there and give Ruby one of your pretty warm up suits so she won't be cold tonight.

Rolling on the floor laughing I love giggling and Dr. Oz said today that it helps us loose weight.

Ruby is quite the priss! I'll bet she never goes to thrift stores. Rolling on the floor laughing
