I think I"m actually done











with holiday shopping.... never in my life have I been done by Dec 1st! wow, how exciting... don't want to make it a habit cause I actually like going out during dec and stopping into Starbucks for a Peppermint Latte.... but since we are leaving on the 18th to head to Arizona... it will make life less stressed this year to have one big thing to have crossed off my to do list!








Here are some recent projects I've been working on... all that shopping gives me no time to scrap so I look forward to being able to do that a bit more now!



Also, there are still some spots left for the Dec 3rd class that I'm teaching at Scrapbooking Plus More (10 am-12) $15... you can sign up at the store ...
we are gonna play with alcohol inks, embossing (both heat and dry), dye based vs pigment inks, paint daubers, etc... and make 6-8 cards...
please sign up... I will be raffling off a Rak during the class too... and think how exciting to have 8 holiday cards done!
we are providing all the stamps, inks, and paper for this... just show up and go home with some fun goodies!
kim-I"ll post the examples later on...

Im so organized this year...

because I have made three holiday organizers! lol The one pictured is one of two for the lss Scrapbooking plus More.... mine is very prettty too... pinks, blues (of course!) and white....
Feeling like getting in the holiday spirit, but not wanting to let go of Fall either...
My November Cards box came with MMe pp goodies galore... and of course, my card!

busy making Christmas cards, shopping online (I'm almost done!) and we set up the tree and decorated the house....

this week will be raking leaves, cleaning up my scrap space and figuring out how I'm gonna take all the gifts on the airplane! yikes..lol

any random Sunday....







is not this one!



First, let me just say how darn exciting it is to like sports and live in New England this year... these teams are just hot hot... as if I could love Tom Brady any more! ;)






Yesterday, I did some projects for ScrapDiner... they had a fun crop fest.. ( I posted a few of my creations yesterday)



Then I hopped on over to Bad Girlskits who are having their Christmas classes/crops all weekend... oh my are those gals talented...






I finished the cover of my holiday planner that I will be teaching at Scrapbooking PLus More in December... I m gonna have to make two because I really need one to plan out this crazy ness during the next few weeks! yikes... cannot believe how fast time goes....






speaking of which.... wanna see just how happy McDonalds makes kids??? Had a birthday party for Ryan who just turned 8... this was the first time he expressed interest in a party and by the looks of the sweet faces that were there.... everyone had fun!






Hope to get together with my neighbor Carol (thanks so much for Ryans shirts, by the way!) to do some stamping for holiday cards... I'm way behind this year so I am "cheating" by doing a card kit that I just have to assemble....






Random fact: Do not leave your back door open in winter... you might find a little grey mole crawling around your mud room.... YEP... Jon called me downstairs to report that little visitor was finding his way out but since they are half blind... we had to lure it to the middle of the room, shove a box down, run a piece of foam core under neath it and guide it over to the door... after the turantulas and bats I have encountered in Arizona... that little guy was nothing... lol



he was actually pretty cute... ( I can say that now that he is out where he belongs! lol)



pics from the birthday party...






peace

Its amazing how 8 years changes a boy....

Erin was a knight and Ryan was Wyatt... aka Super Why... a new cartoon about reading that he is obsessed with on PBS... lol
