Merry Christmas!!!

The kids had a great christmas. Joshua was up all night long waiting for Santa. We finally got up about 6:45 am. Here are a few of the many pictures taken. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Stay safe.

Christmas at Moms

Here are some pictures of Rylie and Lindsay. Melissa, Brad, Lindsay, and Rylie came down to go to Mom's for Christmas. Rylie has grown so much. She doesn't look like a baby anymore.

Joshua being cool!!! Mom's pretty christmas tree.

Upcoming Class

I have been working on classes for the store. Here is the latest one. It is a sneak peak of the flower power class. Those of ya'll that take my class we are going to have fun playing with stickles. This flower power class is scheduled for March. The flower power classes for Jan and Feb are up at the store. I will see you soon.

Good mail day

A great mail day. I received a package from Vicki Chrisman. It was loaded with paper and vintage pictures. I also received one of her lovely charms she made. I absolutely love everything. You are the best.
My pay it forward winners, I am working on your goodies. Gina, I will see you Sunday so I will bring it with me. I am almost finished shopping for Christmas. I have 2 more people to buy for and the wrapping begins. The kids are getting so excited. They have a couple of presents under the tree. Hope everyone is almost done shopping and wrapping.

Santa is here

We went and took pictures with santa at Bass Pro Shop this year. They had an awesome display with sant and his reindeers. You can't see the reindeers in the picture but just trust me it was awesome. I took so many pictures here I can't wait to scrapbook them. Look out for your christmas cards, I mailed some and put this picture in them.

Pay it Forward

Is everyone ready for Christmas? Is everything bought and wrapped? Not I. I had to go back to the store and rebuy some gifts. I have lost a few things here at the house that I bought the kids and it is driving me crazy as to where I put them. I had to go buy them again just incase I couldn't find them because the kids asked Santa for them. Anyways,
while I was checking Vicki's Amazing Art that Makes Me Happy Art at her blog This Art That Makes Me Happy, I saw her Pay it Forward Post and decided to join.

*** I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF (Pay it forward) exchange. I'm not sure what that gift will be. It will be a surprise! The only thing you have to do in return is to pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. So basically, if you’re one of the first 3 comments, I’ll send you something crafty that I’ll make! Once you sign up, I'll email you to let you know that you are one of the three. Then copy and paste this paragraph on your blog, and three other lucky people will be recipients of your handmade work. Pay it Forward!***

It doesn't have to be anything time-consuming or complicated ... it's just a little "spirit of giving" thing. Since it's a busy time of year, you could even wait until January to pay it forward if that works better for your schedule (spread out the love so to speak). Just comment below if you want to join in the fun & I'll e-mail you for your address if you're one of the first three. I haven't decided what I'm going to make yet, or when it will be done, so it will have to be a surprise.
I am working at the retreat at the store this weekend and we received in the new Daisy D line. It is the vintage Valentine line and I think I will be making something with it. That is just a little hint. Have a good day and happy shopping!
