Backsplash Fever

The backsplash is in! Our kitchen is complete! (Well, as soon as we repaint a few little patches of wall.) I've staged the photo with just a few of our red small appliances. The rest of the crap is decorating the dining room table. Fortunately, I invited my sister and cousin over for dinner on Sunday so that will all get taken care of soon.

I've been stitching on the angel. It's almost done. Tonight I am running to Joann's to pick up some finishing fabric so that I can do the finishing tomorrow. I've also been working on my Christmas cards. They're going out Monday. I'm okay with that. Aren't there like, twelve days of Christmas?

I just have to pick up a bottle of vodka and a bottle of wine. A little wrapping and a long drive on Wednesday! I am so relaxed, which just seems crazy.

Love your backsplash- perfect for the red appliances.
Don't forget pictures of the angel.
I heard USPS is doing well, time-wise, this year due to less volume. your cards may make it in time!
Are you self medicating again? BEFORE the wrapping? Maybe not a good idea.
