Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

I'm a little late but, Merry Christmas to everyone.  We have had a wonderful holiday.  Being couch potatoes for most of the week, playing Donkey Kong on the Wii.  The kids play circles around me, but it's been fun. 
I've finally finished a couple of pages from my Dec Album.
Here is the front cover.
And here is Dec 1 & 2.
It's coming slowly.  I remembered to take pic before Christmas, but not too many after.  It's been a very lazy week.

Happy New Years to All

Jolly Snowmen

Sam finished off her tags today.  Here she is glueing and cutting.
And here is her finished product.  She did 36 all together.

Merry Christmas to everyone if I don't get back for a few days.

Happy crafting ;o)

Teachers Gifts

I have the little guy home sick today.  I don't wether he is really sick, (there is alot of flu going around) or if the hussle and bussle of no structured day at school has thrown him off.  But I have to get my dad to come sit with him.  This is my last day of work before a weeks holidays, and I have to work it or won't get payed for the holiday.  Bummer, because I'm exhausted and would love to stay home. 
I did manage to finish up the teachers gifts before I'm off.  Inside the mug is the dry ingredients for a 3Minute Magic Mug Cake.  I found it on Passionately Artistic.

Happy crafting ;o)

Reindeers invading

Christmas is a sneaking up real fast.  Finished my shopping this morning.  If I don't have it, they don't need it.  I'm done.  Now to work on the food. 
My little guy has been busy making a treat for his classmates.  I found this pattern on Scrapbooks Etc.  The little guy has put together 24 candycane reindeer all on his own.  He has done a great job.  Sam is busy with tags for her class.  Will post when they are done. 
24 little reindeer.

Happy Birthday to DH

Just home from work, and filling the time till we head out for dinner.  It's dinner out tonight as DH is celebrating his birthday today. 
One day to spare on the project 12 deadline.  I didn't think I would get finished on time.  This month was all about me.  Usually I'm the one taking the pics and there aren't many of me.  So November is my birthday month, and the day of my birthday I decided to document it.  It's not pretty,  I lead a rather boring life, but it's all about me. 
I had alot of pics to use, so the journaling is hidden under the pics on the right.  You just pull on the 3 birthday cakes that are there, and it slides out.  I love my cuttlebug and die cuts.  Had alot of fun with one, using a birthday die cut I recently picked up.  Love the cool cake in the bottom right. 
I started my day with a cup of tea my daughter so kindly made for me.  Housework doesn't stop just because it's your birthday, so laundry had to be done.  I got money to go clothes shopping, so Sam and I went to town to Mark Work Warehouse.  (love that store) I was after pants, but she picked out a nice top for me, and she liked it so well we got her one to match.  While we were in town, the Craft Nook was having a demo day for the Silhouette.  (great machine, gotta have one)  When we got home Randy was hanging the new screen door, which has sat in the porch all summer.  (He waits till the coldest day to hang it) We had Chinese out, which the kids love.  After dinner it was back home for cake, which Sam made for me.  After the kids were in bed it was out to the hot tub. (sorry no pic, forgot to take the camera out)
Happy crafting ;o)

Oh Christmas Tree

Good evening everyone.  I just wanted to put up a quick post.  I've had a busy day at work.  Everyone is starting to buy their Christmas needs.  With baking, and Christmas parties, it's starting to get a little busier. 
I started writing out my Christmas cards this week.  This one I made a couple of in different colors.  It is one that I did at Lilians card class.  Made a bit of a mess making these with all the glitter.  I always seem to get it all over me. 

Have a great weekend.  Off to put the tree up with the kids, and tomorrow is baking day. 

Happy crafting ;o)

Blue Christmas

What a beautiful sunny day.  Nice day to be home doing Christmas like stuff.  Dug out my CD's. Apparently I only have one, and one hiding in my sons room somewhere that he has been listening to all year. 
I have a couple cards today, not for any challenges.  They just happened.  The first I saw on a blog last week and can not remember where.  The embossed tree was done on silver paper.  I thought it was so stunning, I just had to try it.  It was hard to get a pic of it, as it reflects everything.  But here it is.
The second is another embossed with the village scene.  I used double sided tape around the outside and put gold glitter on it to frame the scene.  The roof tops are done in stickles, and the snow falling is stickle pearls dabbed on.  The snow on the ground is felt, just to give it a little dimention.
Off to do some Christmas shopping. Have a wonderful day.

Happy crafting ;o)

Project 12 October

I've done it.  I'm caught up, and I know what I'm doing for November too, just need to print my pics.  This is my October LO for Project 12, put on by Srapbook & Cards Today
October was yard work.  So many leaves and even more pine needles.  Sam's grade 6 class spent two days at Yearly.  A great Thanksgiving Dinner.  Michelle Wright Concert, that was excellent.  It was an acoustic night.  Michelle, a guitar player, and a piano player.  What a great show.  And lastly Halloween.  We had Cleopatra and Darth Vadar.
Today is the first of December.  It would have been my gramma's 94th birthday.  Happy Birthday gramma, I was thinking of you today.  Miss you lots.  Anyway I'm starting a December album.  I'm going to document everyday of December.  Not that we do a whole lot of exciting things. 

Happy crafting ;o)
