It's hard to believe it's been a year since ... well, since last year. Ha. I was hoping to record another Christmas song for this year but (I don't know how it happened) time got away from me. I suppose if I start now for next year...
Anyway, thanks again to Robbie for coming through for me at the last minute (because that's when I ask for things). I didn't even have a copy of this.

Well, Santa's Workshop may have been open all year but this little elf is working overtime tonight to make up for lost time. It didn't occur to me that Christmas Eve is Friday until one of my clients asked if I'd come early Thursday because she's only working half a day. I questioned, "What about Friday?" Everyone in her office turned their heads and she said, "It's Christmas Eve girl. We won't be here. Take the day off." Oh. Ha. I'm that out of it.
This means I had absolutely no choice but to get my clients' gifts ready for delivery by Thursday morning. Yes, that's now. I'm referring to a little later in the morning. Preparing their little token of love taught me a great lesson. I'm all set for next year. I'll save lots of money and time if I create composites like these before I bring my memory card in for digital photo printing.
Instead of a nice looking composite on each page of their handmade booklet, my clients will receive an 8.5x11" spiral bound elementary-school-looking scrapbook full of color copies of messy overlapped photos. Their doggie's name and face will shine the front cover of their booklet.
I thought I'd save money this way. As it turns out, the cost is about the same as ordering a photo calendar or memory book for each of them. And this one was made with love (rushing panic included). It's times like this when it kinda really sucks to be both a procrastinator and a perfectionist. Oy.
Happy Holidays! I hope everyone is enjoying the season, remembering love and filling our hearts with peace to last us a lifetime (or more).
