Happy New Year...

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And auld lang syne?

I am sitting here in my scraproom looking around and I see so many unfinished projects. There is this one project that stands out. For Christmas (2007) my daughter made me a Journal Jar and a pretty little notebook titled "Pieces of Me". I've yet to start this, shame on me :( she took the time to make it for me and I should have it completed by now. I plan on starting this at the beginning of next year, which is just a few days away. I also plan on finishing up all the other projects I have laying around partially completed. I need to add pictures to some, embellishments to some, journaling to some, you get the idea. Some I may even toss out or redo, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. Wish me luck, I'm gonna need it! And if you've ever struggled with journaling and know of a good source, please share!

A Holiday Dance For You...

Send your own ElfYourself eCards

This Is What Christmas Is All About...

"And there were shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And the Angel of the Lord came upon them and said, 'Fear not: for behold, I bring you tidings of great joy. For unto you is born this day a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.' And there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly hosts praising God and saying 'Glory to God; peace on Earth, good will to men.'

Gift Exchange 08...

This was actually the day before, we got together to make our goodies. I had to have this picture because I told my dear husband that I was going to make them do this. Aren't we cute?

Summer said the other two girls and I should get our picture like this also. The one in the red doesn't look all that thrilled. Wonder why?

Here we are holding our little snow bottle people. We did these together this year, I will be cleaning up glitter for many moons. Again I saw these over at Two Peas and my daughter has a magazine with them in it. I can't remember the name of it.

And here are the snow bottle people. The second and third from the left are my daughters, she has given them some unusual names. The second one is Peace Pimp and the third one is Snow Ho. I can't remember all their names. Mine is the tall one, his name is quite simply Mr. Winter.

A Card and Some Popcorn...

Here's the little gift I made for our Annual Gift Exchange. I saw this card & tag over at Two Peas. Yeah-I used up a few scraps ( I have way to many of them) and that peanut butter, white chocolate popcorn with M&M's is quite tasty. Luckily I bagged it all up to give away. I've definately been eating way too much lately.

A Few Of My Favorite Things...

My ever so Perfect Charlie Brown Tree.

I've seen pictures like these on other blogs. Again I'm no photographer but I thought the idea was neat.

And My Perfect Little Puppy-He's really a Dog now but don't tell him.

A Little Christmas Joke...

What do you call people who are afraid of Santa Claus?

Busy, Busy...

This weekend I got all the groceries picked up for Christmas Day and I finally got the cookies baked, six different kinds. I've been searching forever for a good rolled sugar cookie recipe and I have finally found one. I never try the recipes on the back of flour bags, etc. but I guess I shoud as this is where I found the rolled sugar cookie recipe. If you have a good one, please share. And if you like coconut macaroons, my daughter has found a very good recipe for these. I could eat all of them but I'd better not with all the snacking lately I've put on two extra pounds. Hopefully that Wii Fit will help with this.
I also managed to get over half of the presents wrapped today. We will be delivering them on Tuesday so I had to get a move on. Now just to get the other half wrapped and ready for Thursday.
And can I just say "I LOVE MY KIDS" and THEIR FAMILIES they are the best!

I told my husband before Thanksgiving that I'd like to have the Wii and the Wii Fit for Christmas and that he should get it soon. He told me if I was out and seen it to go ahead and pick it up. I found the Wii right after Thanksgiving but no Wii Fit to be had anywhere. I've had half the family searching for this thing. Well just yesterday my daughter and I went to the ever famous Target, I told my daughter I was going to check to see if they had the Wii Fit. I was pretty sure I was gonna strike out again, not one Wii Fit on the shelf so I started to walk away and a store clerk says to me "May I help you"? I told her I was just checking to see if you had any Wii Fits in, so she scanned the tag and to my surprise they had 16 of them in the back. I waited about 15 minutes for them to bring them up front, made my purchase and left the store. My search is over and I cannot wait until Christmas Day to try it out. I've heard they are alot of fun and not as easy as one might think. I'll let you all know soon.

Our Annual Gift Exchange...

is today. No major crafting this year, I just ran out of time. So this year it's a handmade card, tag and a bag of some peanutbutter, white chocolate popcorn with MM's. We will be having a taco bar for eats, some sweets and drinks and we will also be crafting something special together. I can't wait to see how these little pretties work out, they are just too cute. Well I'd better get ready as company will be arriving soon.

Have a Great Weekend!

Such crappy weather today. I had to take the Deuce to the groomer today in the pouring rain at 7 this morning and have been freezing ever since.
As you can see I've lost focus again, I'd like to call it mojo but I don't think I've really ever had that, I think my OCD gets in the way. I do plan on getting back to my little challenge but as you all know things are a little hectic with the Holidays and all. I still have shopping to do, a gift exchange on Saturday with the girls, presents to wrap, cookies to bake, etc... I did however get my scrap room straightened over the weekend *thanks DIL* for all the help.
My perfect little tree has arrived *grin*. My little Deuce it all purtied up for the Holidays which won't actually last until the Holiday arrives being he's all white and the weather is crappy. I snapped a few picture of him and the tree today. I plan on posting them soon.
I hope you all are enjoying this busy month and getting everything checked off your list.

Have A Great Day!
