Are you ready for a New Year?

What are your goals for the New Year? Last New Years Eve my sister and I made a "Life List". I have only done a few things on my list this year- I ate Elk, and I rode in a helicopter. I also added TN to my list of states visited.My sister on the other hand got a good chunk of hers done. When we do one thing, it is replaced with something new.
I know this will sound silly- but I did not get enough of Christmas! LOL The creating part, that is. I still have several things on my list I didn't get finished in time for this year. MAYBE, if I start now I will be ready next year??

Here are a couple of the cards I made for Jessica's card tin this year.

All Images are from The Angel Company. The papers are some that I have been "saving" for something special. LOL

Until later~

Quick sneak peek

Guess what came in the mail yesterday.......

the brand new TAC Inspiration Book. Oh my goodness, I have such a long wish list!! There are several sets that can be used for Faithbooking. And the new papers are so gorgeous!!! I can not wait for you to see everything!!

Ok, off to do some more drooling.

BTW- the new doggy is doing great, her and Hailey are bestest friends. Hunter has started calling her Belle, and I think I like that name better. :-)

Until later~

Merry Christmas

One down two more to go. We had our Christmas celebration today with my family. The kids had a blast. I am so thankful everyone was healthy this year! My mom is finally getting her health back and is able to play with the kids. We all laughed so hard when "Grammy" climbed in the new tent and Hailey went crazy trying to beat her with a fishing pole. LOL I wish I would have had the video camera for that one. I would have won $10,000 with that one. For some reason Grammy wouldn't do a reenactment for us. LOL

My new 'puter is here and I am really liking it. It has been great to have it where I need it.

DH is loving his Christmas gift, and so is the rest of the family. She is a one year old Basset hound. This is Mabel. Even Lucy (our beagle) seems to have taken to here very well. I know Lucy is wondering why we needed a dog. (SHE thinks she is a kid.)LOL

I finished a card tin for a gift, I sent it on it's way and THEN remembered that I didn't get a picture of it. DUH!!! I guess I have Christmas brain! LOL

I hope you all have a very Blessed Christmas filled to overflowing with all those special people and things you love.
I would like to leave you with a small reminder- He came as a baby that slept in a manger so we could one day live in a Mansion!! Thank you Jesus for coming. Have YOU made room for Christ this holiday season?
God Bless,
Until later~

Busy, busy, busy

I think things have kicked into high gear!! Do you feel as if you will not be ready for Christmas? I *think* I will be ready.....
Shopping- done
Handmade cards- done and sent, just need to deliver some to Church on Sunday
Cookies- well, I guess I should make some more- LOL (I think I have a cookie monster or 3!!)
Food for 3 dinners- all done except for DH's family. We are doing pizza, but I have a couple little things to go with it.
I still need to:
wrap gifts- (Did you know I was a professional gift wrapped before kids? Yep, I wrapped at Macy's.)
make tags
Get the house ready for company on Saturday and Monday.
BTW- My gift from DH is due to arrive today. DUDE, I am getting another Dell!! He got me a notebook, how cool is that? Now I can work where ever the kids are! I plan on taking it to FUNshops and running a Power Point of project ideas.
Well, I am off to stalk the DHL man!!! LOL
Until later~

{sigh}, I THINK I finally got all of my Christmas cards finished. I now have two stacks to mail. Those I can drop in the box today, and those that need to go to the Post Office to be weighed. I really dread going to the PO, there is always a long line, and only one person working.

Here is one of my card creations that I passed on this year.

I am now thinking I should have used it. It is flat enough to not need extra postage, and very fast to finish. Maybe next year. This is the first year I used more than one design. I also used 4 different stamp sets from The Angel Company. There are even some EXTRA special cards going out this year. Hailey loves to color, so I let her color some to send. Hunter colored a couple, then moved on to his favorite Veggie Tales coloring book. LOL

Gotta run, I hear tiny foot steps.

Until later~

Happy Tuesday!! It's raining AGAIN!! What is with all the rain? We have Christmas lights that need to be put up outside. (Hunter told daddy he wants lights on the roof. How funny!!) We drove through Picktown Lights on Sunday. There are 16 houses COMPLETELY decked out and all syncronized to music in 1 nearby neighborhood. I find it very hard to believe one guy controls almost all the Christmas lights on his street. He is very talented!!
The card above was my Breast Cancer Awareness card this year. Again, everything except for the ribbon is from The Angel Company.
Ok, gotta run, Hunter just came by sporting Hailey's new hat and mitttens. The hat is on his head and the mittens are on his FEET! That boy is so crazy! LOL
Until later~

Blue Jay

Of all the cards I have made, HB likes this one the best. I must admit, I am pretty pleased with it myself. LOL All things of nature is the stamp set, colored with Prismacolor Pencils, sponged with Palette ink and I used Matchmakers cardstock. The sentiment is from Holiday liners- all from TAC.
( I need to remember to clear out my cookies more often. I have had trouble logging into Blogger since last week. YIKES!!! LOL)
I am still working on my Christmas cards- maybe I will have them done before New Years. LOL I finally narrowed my designs down to 4. Once they are in the mail I will share those with you.
Until later~

December Happenings

Here are a couple of things from TAC for December.

Just a reminder about the Retiring Stamps, we only have a couple weeks left to order them before they are gone for good. Don't miss out on your favorites.

Until later~

We are now in the midst of the Holiday season. Is your family as busy as ours? LOL And just think, my kiddos are little, just wait until they are school age- and all the activities that come with that. {YIKES!} Hunter is really getting into all the goings on this year. He loves the lights, the trees, and even humored us by sitting on Santa's lap. He did not trust the jolly, bearded elf until Santa mentioned Lightening McQueen. LOL

I made a Holiday planner to help me keep up this Christmas. The local scrapbook store (LSS) Pizazz it! scrapbooks, had a class, but I ended up just buying the kit. I really liked how it turned out. The papers are Bo Bunny.

It has a place for everything- menus, receipts, card lists, traditions, even calendar pages. The 9x9.5 pages are a very nice size to work with.
Until later~
