Oh how I love Christmas time

I do love this time of the year. Makes me so happy. But I am not looking forward to January - when we get the credit card bill. Oops. Hee hee. Naw - love January too. It is my birthday month!

I have lots planned for January. Not going to slow down at all. Well, I am right now. Just taking it all in. Teaching myself how to cross-stitch. I know....not so difficult now is it.......

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and Holiday season with friends and family. Enjoy every moment. Take lots of pictures and be grateful for everything you have. I am.
Merry Christmas!

Love you all!

Can't Wait!!!!

I received a copy of the new mini catalog from Stampin Up and as a demonstrator, I was able to preorder. I finally decided what I wanted (the entire catalog!) and ordered my goodies the other day. It should be delivered tomorrow!!! Can't wait to create adorable, cute projects with my new stuff! Will post when I do!

Going to my 3 year olds Christmas party at lunch today. Santa is coming. He is so excited. I love to watch his face when he sees Santa.

Well, happy holidays!

December Stamp Club









Happy happy happy holiday! What a beautiful white Christmas it is going to be! I love the snow. We went with some friends to the Christmas Fair in Georgetown yesterday and it was like a movie. White fluffy snow, reindeer, Santa, carolers, bagpipes, quaint little stores, roasted chestnuts......and a lovely lunch at The Tea Room. It was wonderful! My favorite time of the year.

Anyhoo, we had our monthly stamp club on Thursday night. It was loads of fun and we did some really cute projects: holiday card, gift card, and a bag-n-a- box. I have attached photos of the card and bag/box. Ya'll have already seen my gift card posted at an earlier date. I am also posting a couple of cute Christmas projects. I had some left over DSp paper curls that I did for my wreaths and thought I would make a Christmas tree out of it. Bought a styrofoam tree from Michaels and attached the curls with sewing pins. The blue snowflake purse/box is a gift from my wonderful upline, Ms Susan Kauber. She stuffed it with the best smelling tea lights. She will kill me b/c I can't remember the name of that company..........anyhoo....Thanks Susan!
Happy Holidays!

Busy as a Christmas Bee!

Busy time of the year and I love it! We just need a little more snow to make it perfect. That is why I live in the mountains - snow makes a cozy, fluffy holiday season. I have been busy making 100's of homemade Christmas cards for my day job. Talked my boss into letting me do them if he bought the supplies. I think it adds a personal touch to our holiday cards going out to a vendors and home owners. Don't you? I will post that cutey tonight so you can see. I have also been working on a Christmas card for our demo swap we are having Thursday night. Local demos getting together to talk and celebrate the season. I will post that one as well. Too cute. each card I create gets better and better. By looking at some of these cards, you would think I was artistic. I'm not. Stampin Up just makes it so easy!

Funny story: last night I started Davis' first advent calendar/book. The calendar goes with a little bear book, you read a story page per night. Davis (he is 3) looked at me like I was crazy! It was so cute. Another idea, is to wrap 24 Christmas books and let your child open one a night to read.

Anyhoo............hope you are as busy as me but enjoying your time!
Post the cards tonight for all to see!

TTFN,
