Trying to find a few minutes this morning to print some of last year's Christmas photos to scrap. My desk has been used as the present wrapping center, so I've got to clear up that mess to scrap.




I hope that you got last years Christmas pics printed. I hope you found your desk. Mine is our wrap center too.

Yes this one will be my first child. I know its going to be a long long 9 month. For some reason I can now smell everything and I mean everything.




I hope that you have an easy pregnancy & I wish you the best wishes & that everything goes ok. I hope that the smells subside so you do not get sick from them.

Linda, did you get your cute snowman cards finished and mailed? I might do them for next Christmas. Maybe I'll begin them as soon as I uncover my work table and get all my supplies back together again. My bin of Nesties is at my daughter's. Since she got a bunch for Christmas, mine had better find their way home soon lol ~Judy

We will see how bad it is christmas since, I have to make two type of fish one for DH and one for MIL. Pretty much chrismas has turned in to me being a short order cook for people this year. This is my big project for the season. The wreath I made based off a ideal i got from pinsterest and the stocking just kind help pull it all togeather.










Oh Steph those decorations are fabulous! You did a good job on them
I hope you did not get sick on Christmas dinner.

December is such a busy month for us that I haven't gotten crafty a whole lot lately. I did 1 double page layout (unfinished!) and 3 Christmas tags (finished). Can't wait to get back to business

Happy Friday Eve everyone!!




Hey Kim, glad you are checking in too. At least you got the two page lo done & the tags. YEAH Hope you are able to craft soon

From 12/22 to 12/26 I did eight layouts! I hadn't done any since late October (I was sick for a while in November, and when I wasn't sick I was pouring my energies into card-making and gift-making). That's probably it for the year though; I need to get some specific paper (that I can't find locally) and print some photos (TONS of them) in order to do much else.




WAY TO GO Bunny. That is a lot of pages. SOmetimes you have to make other things when you are not feeling well I hope you are feeling much better.

I think a table is needed for scrapbooking and mine seems to be buried. I guess housecleaning will have to come before scrapping ~Judy





I think you are correct Judy! lol I hope you are able to get it done asap.

Well Judy, I have not finished them yet. I am sending them late. lol When I work on them my hand would have spasms so I just worked on them a bit at a time. Then we got very busy. I am going to work on them again.

One year I sent Valentines to everyone since I hadn't gotten cards ready for the previous Christmas. People really liked it, since I included a newsy letter and they had time to actually read it. I didn't send pictures or a letter this year, so I'm thinking about sending Easter cards and including the letter and photo page. We'll see... ~Judy

Well Judy, I used to send Valentines, easter cards, halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmaas. I used to send them to my friends & family but after my mom died, I started sending to her addy book too. Some were her friends as a child & lot were family. I used to send 50 ea time.
Lots of them were older people whho really looked forward to it. My mom taught me how to make cards as a child so we always sent when I was growing up. WE had such fun. Now I do it in honor of her.
She sure would have loved the stamps & papers today. We did keep stuff in scrapbooks too but the old fashioned way. lol she would love the lss too.

What a great idea, Judy!! I didn't get Christmas cards out this year, so I think I'll do Valentines Day cards instead!!
And I have a long weekend crop coming up at the end of January which will give me plenty of time to get them done. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Linda...do you still have the link where you got the directions for your snowman cards? I looked at it when you posted it and now I have lost it..forgot to bookmark! I loved the cards and am thinking of making them for next year! I am very slow so would have to start in January just to have them ready by December of 2013!! If you have the link, would you please re-post it? thanks.
