Only an Aunt

So maybe I should talk a bit more in these posts, instead of just throwing freebies at y'all :)

Well my birthday was nice, but I got in a car accident (frowny face). I was in my employer's vehicle as well (SUPER frowny face). Thank goodness the kids I watch weren't in the car with me, and it was really just a bad fender bender, no one was hurt at all. The young lady I hit was -vocal- to say the least. Needs a lesson on how to handle stress; cussing and threatening violence really lead nowhere.. Anyway. I'm just glad no one was hurt and my boss wasn't too angry with me, very supportive actually and I am so grateful for that.

December is just so busy, I am having no time to hang out on my computer banging out wordart! I designed Christmas cards for both my sisters, but have YET to get to ours (ouch). I still have a bit of Christmas shopping to do and will be working more hours through the holidays since school is out and the kids I watch will be home all day. Plus my birthday happened (28 is still not quite sinking in) and my NINTH wedding anniversary is tomorrow (happy dance!). Whew! So these freebies I am doling out this month are actually gifts I've made for people. Each one will be printed, framed, and given for Christmas to a family member (mostly on my hubbie's side). With so much going on out here in the real world, I wanted to share with y'all a bit without having to eat up time I need to spend Christmassing!

Today's freebie will be a gift for my aunt, Lisa. She lived with my grandparents my whole life and I was very close to them and visited often, so she was always a part of that experience. When I was a kid, she was the one to treat me to Cadbury Creme Eggs, take me to movies in the theater(!), and let me choose the programs on her TV. Now that I'm an aunt, I understand a bit more how precious those nieces and nephews really are. I'm pretty fond of the 17 (going on 18!) that Joe and I share. Especially my four :)
