Sunday December 12, 2010 Lauren and I did a little volunteering at a local highschool packing bags and kits for those in need in Zambia, a lot was done in an hour and it was nice to help.
Monday December 13, 2010 Did most of my LJ Christmas cards, the trees went mainly to friends at qaf_friends, while the two different deers went to RL friends.
Tuesday December 14, 2010 Just before dark when I arrived at work for the night-shift, which, in my case, is 5:00pm to 11:00pm. I used a particular setting, Enhanced Portrait, which softens the image and caused the letters to blur out which I like.
Wednesday December 15, 2010 Had to bite-the-bullet and clean up the fruit that drops from the 'strawberry' tree, which, apparently, can be made into jam, not that I ever will. When you get to Saturday's pic, you'll see why this chore has to be done now all over again.
Thursday December 16, 2010 Our friend, Cindy, made us cookies and bread this year, the first of what we hope will become a Christmas tradition.
Friday December 17, 2010 I've had the Christmas Origami kit for YEARS and decided this year to include in the cards to close friends some of what i I've learned to make over the past couple of months plus a couple more that the kit taught me like the traditional star, which Lauren calls a ninja star, and the flying deer. The green & red squareish one at the front received a little stick-on snowflake to hold it together which isn't 'traditional' origami but whatever.
Saturday December 18, 2010 Self-explanatory, a big mess which is even bigger-er today. You can actually see the fallen 'strawberries'.
