The countdown is on!!

Less than one month until Christmas... are you ready??!! I am happy to say that I pretty much am, and this is the earliest I have EVER been finished shopping and wrapping! Sometimes, I surprise myself. ;p

So as a special little reveal today at LIITD, Lori sent us all some of these most awesome little coffee tin tie bags to decorate up all pretty.... I have already used a few of mine as gifts, but they sure were hard to part with! Definately a great idea for teachers gifts, or for your postal worker, doctor, etc.

Here is a peek at what I did with mine, and then come and check out all of the different ways that Lisa, Amber, Melissa & Nola dressed theirs up here in the gallery!!!

Have yourself a great week, everyone.... get that decorating done and get in the Christmas spirit!!!

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!

Ho Ho Ho Everyone!! I am so excited to show you what I've been working on with my November picks from the LIITD store!! I chose My Mind's Eye HOLLY JOLLY paper pack, along with some Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Ruffled Darlings ribbon, some Liquid Pearls in Ruby Red and Emerald Green, some Pink Paislee Pixie Stix Glitter in Green Apple, and a package of Prima Flowers Traditional Antique Mistletoes!! Everything is available at the LIITD store, so if you see something you like, then check it out here!!

This month I really stepped out of the box for ME. I didn't do ONE layout. Not one!! Can you believe it? LOL! Instead I looked around at what I already had to use, and found an old Fancy Pants chipboard box, some Maya Road chipboard, a paper mache house, and a 7Gypsy Tray that I was dying to use. And here is what I created with it all!

So what are you waiting for? Get a start on those Christmas presents and show someone just how much they mean to you by giving them a hand made gift this year!! :)

Yay for the weekend!!

Someone wanted to say hello.... full of Arrowroot cookie but still cute as a button :)

It is cold and winter is definately here, people... we don't have too much snow yet, but I am sure it is on it's way! I am hoping that being housebound for days on end this winter, with no job to go to, will result in some serious scrappy time. Gotta have SOMETHING good about the winter, right??

I started curling again. I haven't curled since before I had Makenna, so it's been 6 years since I last stepped on the ice. Although I was very sore after the first game and I pulled my groin during the first 2 rocks of our second game tonight, I am very happy to be back on the ice doing something I love to do. I'm not a professional, but I love it, and that's what matters! It's also a night out of the house, with my boyfriend, as I am curling on his team.

Have you started your Christmas shopping? Are you done? All wrapped? I am 90% finished shopping, but I haven't wrapped a thing yet. I am waiting for some new paper I ordered from the Grad fundraiser this year before I start ;) I hope the kids like their gifts, and everyone else too!!!

Nothing much else to report tonight, just wanted to pop in and say hello! Stay warm and safe on the roads for those in the snowy areas this weekend!! :)

I'm always wishing

for one extra hour in the day, right? So why do I detest Daylight Savings soooo much?! LOL! Well, I would MUCH rather it say 7am on my clock than 6am when Makenna wakes me up. The one morning she has let me sleep that late in over a week, and it has to be the morning that I put the clocks back. ;p
So how is everyone doing? Are you sharing in the beautiful November weather we've been having? This is unreal!! Normally we have some snow on the ground by now.... It HAS snowed, but hasn't stayed. I'm sure soon we will be hit, and hit hard to make up for it.
I am hosting Makenna's birthday party with her little friends this afternoon, and have decided to use the Birthday in a Box kit that I made last month.... and I made her a pitiful Princess Tiana cake... which she adores, so that's all that matters, right? Tomorrow is a dreaded trip to the dentist (2 hours away), and then Monday is Jackson's birthday party with his friends! After that is done, I can finally focus on CHRISTMAS!! It is creeping up faster and faster.... no idea what I'm getting for anyone, so shopping should prove to be interesting!!
Not much else to report, just wanted to say hello!! If you need some crafty inspiration today, check out Lisa's reveal at LIITD... it is divine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
