More Christmas Cards

As many of you know I am always running late. It never occurred to me that Christmas was right around the corner. So I have been busy making Christmas cards wrapping gifts, purchasing last minute gifts and realized I hadn't mailed out all of my cards. I mailed out some last week, yesterday, and missed the mail today by about 1/2 hour. My last batch will go out tomorrow. Some will get an after Christmas card.

This card used Holiday Block Stamp set, and Evensong paper. This card works for the

Card-a -licious challeng #8

This card uses Aspen paper, Just Chillin Stamps, December Word Puzzle, and Martha Stewart border punch

I recently gave in and got a Cricut. The words Happy Holiday are made using the cricut, everything else is CTMH.

I think this is one of my favorite cards. I love the border punch from Martha Stewart and the Just Chillin Stamp set is sooo cute.

The card above uses Just Chillin and Aspen paper pack. Below is a close up. The glitter doesn't show very well, but I like it.

Thanks for looking

Always find your happy place!

Toys for Tots Crop

Barbara Reynolds organized a Toys for Tots Crop this last weekend. Admission was a new unwrapped Toy. There was a great turnout. We had over 50 toys donated for our local organizations. There were classes as well as lots of fellowship. Below are pictures of some of the croppers and some of their projects they were working on.

Pat and Cathy had at work and having fun.

The finished pages

Erin is one of my fellow croppers. We do things together alot, as you can tell from the shirt she is wearing. She is always making some cool project.

This card was made by Betty Prater. I thought it was soo cute. I loved how she made the window frame for the snowman to be looking out of . Unfortunatly my camera didn't get a good picture. The battery was getting low.

Terri and Betty hard at work.

Karen is another friend charged with the Crime of Scrapping. She is very creative and always does wonderful projects.

Thanks for looking

New Car Mercury Mariner

I finally got a new car. It was just what I wanted. My friend Jane went Car shopping with me. We drove lots of different cars, before I found one that made me smile. It was weird, none of the other cars I drove made me happy. When I was finished test-driving this car I knew it was the one. I was happy and ready for the dealership to make me an offer that I couldn't refuse. After what seemed like hours( and it did take some time) I got the offer Iwanted and said SOLD. I took it home to show my parents and they agreed that I did a good job. I love my new car and would recommend it to anyone.

Always find you Happy Place!!!

Teacher Gift Idea

I found this cute snowman box template at Card of the I changed the size a little and put my own spin on it. I used the cuttlebug embossing folders, and all other products are Close To My Heart. Aspen Paper & Merry Pursuits stamp set. I thought it was way cute and it is so easy. You could put a instant hot chocolate in it with a chocolate spoon. What a great gift that would be.

Painting/Decorating- Which color would you choose

So I always had a hard time deciding on the color of walls. Well painting my stairs isn't easy and it won't be something that I do frequently. SOOOO I had to decide on a color that I liked. The squares were on the wall for about 2 weeks. I started with 2 squares and kept adding. My parents came up the weekend before Thanksgiving to help me paint my stairwell and living room. They came up Friday and stayed through Monday. They were suppose to go home on Sunday, but I had the stomach flue so bad my mom was worried about leaving me by myself. Sometimes it is tough being single and livng by ones self. It was nice to have my mom here to pamper me. Thanks mom!!!

Not the best picture, but it was tough being on a ladder in the stairs..

Dad built a box to go on the stairs for the ladder to sit on. It was still a little scary and Dad stayed next to the ladder to make sure I didn't knock it over.

Dad helped paint the upper part while I was trimming another wall.

Mom helped tape and trim. She also got the job of painting behind the Entertainment Center.( I wouldn't fit) Lucky for me neither mom or dad got pictures of me when I was sitting on top fo the Entertainment center painting and trimming next to the ceiling.

Unfortunately we didn't get the living room finished. Loosing ones cookies seems to slow a person down. I hope to finish it over Christmas Break. I will also have to decide how to scrapbook the pictures. Thanks for looking. I hope to post some artwork tomorrow.

Always find your happy place
