Warmest Holiday Wishes to All!

Well it is almost time for the Jolly man to arrive and the lights have been hung! I just love this Santa ornament. I am loving the Cannon Rebel XS that Santa gave me too, yes I know it is before Christmas. Convinced him I needed it early so I would know how to use it on Christmas! TE HEE HEE HEE In the spirit of love and kindness
I wish everyone Joyous Holidays from our home to yours!

Outside Christmas Prep

Having fun putting up outside Christmas lights up today or I should say John is. I am just playing a support role in the caper! LOL I keep the music going, make sure he has something to drink and occasionally hand him something. Had minor surgery yesterday and that went well. Yippee Looking for the kids to be home on the 20th for Christmas. We always have a party at work for needy children helped get presents for that this week. Looks like everything is falling in place for the big day. Hope your Holidays are Merry and Bright!

Holiday Preparations

Holiday prep is in full swing here! Love the season. I have a quirky little thing I started doing years ago. Whatever hobby I am into I always save the December magazine. Always looking for new recipes, decorations or scrapbook ideas. During the month of December whenever I have a few minutes whether it be while waiting for something to come out of the oven or just taking a few moments to have some hot coco and prop my feet up, I take out the old magazines and reminisce. It is especially fun with the SB magazines. I find designers I haven't seen in awhile, sometimes I find an old technique I can make new again or just laugh at how we used to do things. I always see something I did not remember from years past. Here are two of my Christmas cards for this year. Stamps and punches from Stampin' Up, bird punch from Martha Stewart, Stickles(best glitter glue on the market IMHO),and I forgot the name of the maker of the felt trees but, they were a bargain at Big Lot's. Now gotta get them addressed and in the mail!
