This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

It seems like Christmas.....

went by in a flash. All the prep and anticipation, then all over so quickly. Do you feel that way too? While it was wonderful to relax and unwind this weekend, I wish it could last longer. I guess the next best thing is to try to keep that warm fuzzy feeling all year long. I want to share a photo of some cute Christmas treat holders I made with Stampin' Up! "Dashing" Designer paper which is retired, Old Olive card stock, and the Holiday Best stamp set, a hostess set. I also used the Scallop Circle punch and the 1 3/8 inch punch. I think they would be really nice for a dinner place marker or in a little bowl on your desk or table. Each one has a yummy Ghirardelli Chocolate square in it.

I may be.......

in the midst of Christmas preparations, but I have a birthday card to post. I forgot to post this one I made for my sister Chris back in November. I used Stampin' Up's Fifth Avenue Floral and Sincere Salutations stamp sets, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White card stock, Raspberry Tart designer paper, Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon, Rose Red and Basic Black ink. I also used Nestibilities to make the ovals.

There is a good reason....

God gives us children when we are young. After a day of Gingerbread house makin', tree trimmin', and cookie bakin' with my granddaughter Olivia, this old girl is just worn out. I wouldn't trade it for anything though. Tomorrow we are going to craft and make some Christmas gifts. I better get to bed so I will be ready to go again in the morning. I hope you all are enjoying the preparations for the holidays too!
