Merry Christmas

Well it's been a wonderful Christmas at my house.  I hope that you & your families are enjoying the end of a beautiful Christmas weekend.  I traveled all the way across the street to my neighbor's to spend the day with the Berry's.  What a fabulous day - I could not have asked for more. What a joy to watch the children open their gifts....

Coming down the stairs to see the first gifts from Santa!

Ohh - some nail's a girl thing!!
Merlin after Jonesin' on some cat nip!!
Emily with her new back pack - well it seems the back pack is bigger than Emily, but she assured everyone that she can handle it!!  All this at two!!  How cute??
And - all the kids rockin' out with their new guitar jams!!  How much FUN....thanks Grandma!  It was truly a rockin' day!

Jen, Matt & Lorren...I cannot begin to thank you for providing me with a lovely Christmas - I sure had a fun day.  Hope you are recovering & getting a chance to rest today!! 

To everyone else - hope you had a joyous Christmas & may you have a happy & healthy New Year!!

Busy Weekend!!

Good Afternoon!!

I hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving.  I had a great time with my friends and have been decorating and crafting right though all four days - who could ask for more!!  Here is a picture of the weather in PA on Thanksgiving day...
Yep, it's true - we had snow on Thanksgiving Day!!  Not too much, but it was fun to watch.

Here is one of my crafting projects - I made Wine Bottle covers using some FUN fabric cut with the big shot.  If you would like to learn how to make one - let me know!

On Black Friday - instead of shopping I put up my Christmas Decorations....

And to finish off the weekend I had a wreath making class today - again this uses the Fabric & buttons from the Winter Mini & Circle die's for the big shot.  There were 6 of us sewing today & it was a fantastic way to finish the weekend.  Hope you like it!

If this is something you would like to make - get in touch with me & maybe you can learn to make one too!

Check in next week & see what is happening in my world of stampin' & craftin'!!!
