Sometimes the storm never comes, the snow never falls, the accident never happens, and the kittens leave the tree alone. I have no idea why these two little squirts didn't like the tree, they only didn't. I think they saw me with my camera and decided that "Hah! We'll get her, no going up the tree." and thus the pact was made!

The perfect Christmas gift was not found this year, it was made. I started it almost right after Christmas 2007.
Elaine is an "Aerosmith Groupie" and proud of it!! So I made her a quilt with rock stars, guitars, and guitar picks and then the center of each quilt block printed an album cover of Aerosmith. She really loved it, and took it home in her carryon to be sure the airlines wouldn't lose it.
This is probably one of my favorite prompts. I think I loved this song, "Christmas All Alone" more than anyone, it was a simple song, but it made me think of the days when I'd be the bride waiting to get married in June. My mother would have this album playing on her old HUGE stereo, and I loved it.
I printed the words on a "record" that does come out of the album, and it attached to the page by music ribbon.
