I got several jewelry orders this weekend, and I've been beefing up my inventory, so I went to Joann today for some retail therapy. They didn't have the earwires that I wanted--I ended up ordering them online tonight--but I bought a bunch of fancy headpins and some plain sterling earwires. I also bought Christmas-themed tissue paper for packing orders.
Then I went to Target and bought Christmas cards. I send quite a few Christmas cards, so yesterday I went by Half Price Books to see if they had any I liked. They had a few cute ones, but nothing that I really loved. I found some cute ones at Target, though, so I can cross that off my list. If you want to get on my Christmas card list, just send me one!

When I was at Joann, I bought a really cute little tabletop artificial tree, with a painted tin bucket to sit it in. I thought it would like nice on the dining room table (assuming I ever get the jewelry making supplies and wrapping paper off of it . . .), but Dinah wouldn't leave it alone. She got up on the table and started chewing on it, and when she wouldn't stay away from it after I yelled at her, I set it over on top of the server, and she got up there to chew on it. I figured short of putting it on top of the refrigerator, I wouldn't be able to keep it away from her, so I brought it in to work. Which is fine, but I already had a tree here. Oh well, can't have too many, that's what I say!
