Word of mouth, limited time? It is so limited, and I wouldn't want anyone to show up at the wrong time and be upset. I would list it well before the Nativity to give people a chance to see it listed, and plan ahead to go there. But word of mouth would keep them from hunting for it.

The thing that I liked about Frozen was that marrying a prince at the end wasn't presented as the solution to all the heroine's problems. It even showed that rushing into a relationship can be a mistake, and you should choose carefully.

The thing that I didn't like was hearing "Let It Go," everywhere for months!

I went to the website and there are some cute bags. Unfortunately, there are no outlets in Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, or Oklahoma. Oh well.

I did see some promising bags on kohls.com. I prefer to buy purses in person because more than once have I bought a purse without trying it on and it hung funny on me and ended up giving me a sore neck. So I'll go to the store Monday... or today if I feel brave. People have already started Christmas shopping and weekends are crazy.

That sucks! Small Macys? What about the local Bloomingdales? Sometimes their sales are good.

Nothing wrong with a Hello Kitty purse, maybe Kuromi even! ;) (I can sympathize, it sounds like your purse search is similar to my clothing searches, everything that fits well and looks good is expensive, while everything that I can afford isn't so hot. So, denim, t-shirts, running shorts and tank tops for me mostly)

Shark Girl's Vera Bradley suggestion is good if you don't mind fabric. Some of the patterns are cute. And some Hallmarks carry them.

Do you have a TJ Maxx or Marshalls where you live? They get leather bags there for good prices. They will also get designer bags and have them deeply discounted. They may be online. I did read an article about stuff carried in designer outlet stores. Some of them have a line of lower end that they sell at the outlets. So a leather purse may actually have vinyl parts. Watch what you get at outlets.

label paper options would work.

That is what I used and it worked well.
It is softer than pink, but has a different good feel to carving than the Master Carve.

One Elsa and one Anna for the night . 130 kids or so. We do hand out full sized candy bars so that's fun in seeing their reactions.
Opted for warm cider as it was cold and rainy. Dare I say it was to cold to drink beer.
Best costume was neighbor dad who dressed up like Daryl from The Walking Dead. Complete with vest with wings on the back, crossbow (toy) and fake rabbit pelts hanging over his shoulder.

Technically Elsa isn't a princess, but imstead a queen

I was referring to that group of female characters that Disney considers "princesses". Mulan is an official DP, although she is not royalty, for example. Elsa and Anna aren't officially recognized as DP yet, (some are saying they are "princesses in waiting") but it is just a matter of time before they join the others. Time Magazine Online has an interesting article about the voices of the DP http://entertainment.time.com/2013/11/27/14-disney-princesses-and-the-actresses-who-voiced-them/ that includes Elsa & Anna.

There is an official "Disney Princesses" website, and of course, "Disney Princesses" merchandise galore. My great niece flip flops between Han Solo and the princesses. I'm leaning towards Star Wars stuff for her this Christmas <G>.

It's finally our time for the theme!

I didn't realize that there are so many letterboxes in Utah. I didn't know there were so many letterboxes in Ogden. I'll need to count how many I've got from Ogden.

I've also planted more than half of the ones in Riverdale.

So much interesting information.

You know, now that Disney owns Star Wars, Leia is a Disney Princess. You can do both for your niece.

That's true. Since you came up with it then you should tell Ryan. Here's a link to documentation. Another interesting fact at the bottom of that article:

The Trembling Giant, or Pando (Latin for "I spread"), is a a single clone of quaking aspen connected by one, massive underground root system. Pando's root system of Pando is estimated to be 80,000 years old, making it one of oldest known living organisms on earth. It encompassed approximately 106 acres and is estimated to weigh in excess of 13 million pounds. Pando is located 1 mile southwest of Fish Lake on SR-25 in Fishlake National Forest.

Mine's a thirtyone as well. I got the one where you can change the purse skirt, so I don't have to buy a whole new purse every time. Ive had it about 2 1/2 years and have two purse skirts. I don't change mine as often. I would like to get a new one for spring though.

Sometimes, when it comes to petty annoyances like this, you just have to "let it go."

Although I haven't gotten these boxes yet, I would highly recommend them - http://www.logees.com/media/images/Logees%20Letterbox.pdf. The location is WELL worth a visit. My kids love going and walking around. It's our own local rainforest. I am glad they put boxes here as I always thought it was the perfect location.

Success! Surprisingly, I actually settled on a vinyl purse. When you first look at it, you cannot tell it's vinyl, and those are the ones I hate. The ones that when you look at them you think they look like they are plastic. I ended up getting this purse which actually says it is "online only" but they had 2 at my store so I don't know if they were both returns or if my store just got them for some reason. Or maybe they were in stores but are now online only and my store still had some left. I only saw it at my store in the cognac but that's ok because I like that color. The handles are long enough that I can sling it over my shoulder but short enough that I can keep it on my forearm. Plenty of pockets. Just the right size. The only other requirement I had was a cell phone pocket on the outside and technically this one has 2. I'm not completely fond of the fact that they are on the side but I'll probably get used to that. At least for the 3-6 months that I will carry this thing before I go in search of the next purse. :)

I even found a wallet that I liked, also in cognac. My checkbook cover was falling apart and I can put my checkbook in this wallet so it works out.

Small Macys? What about the local Bloomingdales?

No Bloomie's here, our "city" is too small for that. I think the Macy's is probably small for some areas but it's a decent size for here and 2 stories plus they bought out the store next door and use that also.

everything that fits well and looks good is expensive,

I'm with you there. I have been on a weight loss journey this last year and have lost so much weight that nothing from last year fits. I'm restocking my wardrobe entirely about every 3-4 months. I have 22 pounds to get to my goal weight. I can't afford to buy the really nice stuff since I'm still losing. Thank goodness I know how to crochet and knit because I can buy yarn at Hobby Lobby and Joann and make a really nice sweater for about $10-$15, which is equivalent in looks and design to sweaters at the mall that run $80 and up.

I thought about TJ Maxx and Marshalls. Our Marshalls is kinda gross though and I just went there the other day for a yoga mat and didn't notice anything that caught my eye just cruising through. TJ Maxx is a good idea when I'm on the hunt in 3-6 months again. Our TJ Maxx (and Marshalls) are super small though so it's not too often that I see anything I like. I mean these stores are so small, they are about the size of Joann, if not smaller. And we don't even have a very big Joann.

Ummmmm......I am finished, going to wrap packages this weekend.

I don't buy much for Christmas anymore. Hubby's family doesn't exchange gifts with us so we don't have to worry about them. My family is so huge that we just do a single gift gift exchange and the rule is that it either has to be $25 (or less) or you are allowed to spend $25 on supplies to make something... and my family would rather have something handmade than a $25 store bought gift. There are so many kids in my family that as moms we all decide on a specific store each year and everyone buys $5 gift cards for each kid so they can put all their cards together and get themselves what they want. My son is an adult and he'd rather just have money so that's easy. I really only shop for one gift for my husband and a few for my daughter... she is at the age that she'd rather have a few really nice gifts than a slew of less expensive things. We are buying her a laptop this year so I'm waiting to see what's on Black Friday. I should be able to do all of my Christmas shopping in a day.
